Anteros Cruises has announced what it is calling the world’s first dedicated LGBT cruise line, scheduled to commence sailings in April 2017 with a to-be-named 400-passenger ship.

The company promises "elebrity-designer interiors and stylishly-sophisticated soft goods, to unparalleled personalized service delivered by a meticulously trained crew."

“Every aspect of the Anteros Cruises experience is designed with LGBT community members in mind. Our number one priority is making our guests feel comfortable, relaxed, and open, so they can be themselves while enjoying our luxury yacht-like cruise experience,” said David Huang, Director of Anteros Cruises.

"We are thrilled to present this novel, overdue concept in travel dedicated to the LGBT traveler, featuring itineraries to popular as well as off-the-beaten-path ports that are designed to make the LGBT traveler feel completely welcome and catered to every step of the way.”

Sailings will be presented on a year-round basis with itineraries ranging from five to 14 days.

Cruising the Mediterranean during summer and fall months, the 400-passenger ship will make Barcelona and Piraeus (Athens) its homeports, said a press release.

Caribbean homeports during winter months will include St. Maarten and Colon.

“In the coming weeks, we look forward to presenting the world with even more exciting details about Anteros Cruises – the first dedicated LGBT cruise line,” said Huang.  “Stay tuned for much more to come!”
