Halloween is Just the Beginning

Remember the carefree joys of dancing with friends, exploring a new place, reveling in a new adventure, and dressing up, down or silly? When Atlantis does Halloween, we’ll bring it together with a mix of dazzling thrills and zany fun. All followed by a week of pure bliss where superstar talent takes center stage, world-class DJs inspire, parties sizzle into the morning, and we all get to see the world again. 

Pure Bliss.

Get onboard the newest and most advanced ship in the West where options abound and a new adventure awaits at every moment. The stunning Norwegian Bliss features the largest pool deck we’ve ever sailed, perfect for our t-dances and evening events, original places to play, dazzling entertainment spaces, a bounty of inviting eateries, and a blisteringly cool design throughout.

Chill out in the Vibe Beach Club or take a spin around the Bliss Speedway, the largest racetrack (yup!) at sea. Scream a little on the AquaRacer, and reward a long day out with quality time in the massive Mandara Spa. Meet some friends at the ship’s core – 678 Ocean Place, or just people watch on the glorious outdoor pool deck or from the dazzling Observation Lounge.  Bliss was built for enjoying the wonders of life at sea with features perfect for us in every way.

Hit the Beaches.

Explore the Pacific’s most alluring beaches and cities, including a late-night stay in gay-friendly Puerto Vallarta with plenty of time to enjoy the city’s incomparable nightlife and beach culture. Dive, fish, or snorkel in beautiful Cabo San Lucas, or explore a nearby uninhabited beach.  Discover the best of authentic Mexico in the charming city of Mazatlan, a remarkable beachfront metropolis.

Play Here

Find your perfect place in the sun during our three fabulously entertaining days at sea, where options abound, and Atlantis will keep you entertained day and night. From our daytime pool games to festive afternoon T-dances, you’ll always be tempted to join in. Take in our afternoon drag Bingo (the gayest bingo ever), indulge in a long brunch with friends, play a game of volleyball, check out the waterslides and race cars, or find a quiet deck chair on Bliss’ massive outdoor decks. And when you’re ready to really relax, the Mandara spa features every imaginable treatment along with one of the largest and most complete fitness centers at sea.  

Head-Spinning Talent

We’re celebrating 30 years of Atlantis talent with a mix of our superstar entertainers, special guest performers, and dazzling outdoor musical events.

Our white-hot entertainment lineup features a mix of fresh and familiar Atlantis performers including our own stellar gay circus show, Miss Richfield 1981, La Voix, and so much more. We’ll even invite a special guest or two from Broadway, TV, or beyond. Past years have featured Olivia Newton-John, Billy Porter, Patti LuPone, Idina Menzel, Kathy Griffin, Jennifer Hudson, Vanessa Williams, Erasure, Cynthia Erivo, and so many others.  Who knows who might show up this year?

On deck we’ll blow you away with a superstar electronic music show and a few surprises. We’ve brought you community exclusive concerts by Above & Beyond, Galantis, Markus Schultz, Gareth Emery, Cosmic Gate, and more!  Look for an exciting announcement soon.

And that’s just the beginning! Bliss offers several intimate spaces to showcase top gay comedians, fabulously outrageous drag queens, Atlantis musical stars, and more from our community. Get ready to experience the largest festival of gay entertainers on the planet!

Dance. Dance. Dance!

Nothing compares to dancing under the stars or afternoon sun on the wide-open top decks of a cruise ship, and Bliss boasts our largest and most spectacular venue yet. An incredible and diverse set of spectacular parties will rise up from this remarkable space, featuring concert sound, eye-popping lights, dazzling lasers, mesmerizing video, and the friendliest crowd on land or sea. The world’s top gay DJs headline our signature themes with wide-ranging musical styles, designed to fit everyone’s taste. 

It all starts with a completely original take on Halloween, so start your costume creations now! We’ll tell you more about our other theme nights in late June, but just know that we’re planning the parties that everyone needs right now!

Late night Bliss offers a fascinating outdoor space called Spice H20 that we’ll use for both our after hours and our first-ever sunrise morning party. Plus we’ll create some truly original after-hours events in unexpectedly playful spaces onboard.

Over 30 years Atlantis DJs have curated an original upbeat repertoire that blends todays’ hottest tracks with musical tributes to Classic Disco, 80s retro, great divas from the 90s, and more.  But it’s always uplifting, and variety is the key with different sounds at every party.  Regardless of your taste in music, or temperament for a party, we will blow your mind.

Of course, any Atlantis event will be planned with your safety first and we will adjust our programming in accordance with the highest standards.  We’ll keep you informed on our “Already Booked” pages as well as through email notifications.
