LIBERTY OF THE SEAS
sailing round-trip from
Cape Liberty NJ to Bermuda
Introducing a wonderful new option for you and your loved ones...
Since 1999, Mark 'Chumley' Singer has been organizing specialty group sailings for members of the LGBTQ community.
While there were quite a few options for 'all-gay' charter cruises, they were considerably more expensive and not the vibe that we were all seeking when we vacation. Our large groups allow us to offer great pricing, all of the wonderful elements provided to any cruise guest, as well as the convenience of a designated travel agent and event producer with more than 4 decades of combined experience. In addition, you'll enjoy access to exclusive ground transportation, host hotel with discounted pricing, private activities designed to enhance your options and make new friends, and online group access to get to know your fellow travelers before even leaving home!
We search for the best cruise lines, ships and itineraries at the best pricing, because we know travel is expensive and we all need more time away to relax and refresh from the daily grind.
As more and more of our guests are now starting families, and so many of us have friends and family with kids of all ages, it is clearly time we started a group specifically designed for families of all types. More than two decades and dozens of cruises later, we are so excited and proud to introduce our Inaugural Chumley's Family Cruise!

Endless adventures abound aboard LIBERTY OF THE SEAS
Crown Princess remains fresh and beautiful, in no small part due to her 2018 refurbishment. While one of the largest ships in the Princess Cruise Line fleet, you'll rarely feel it's size while enjoying your time aboard.
The busy three-story atrium plaza is a hub of activity, with “street performers” singers, and musicians... making it the perfect place to relax and people-watch and to enjoy a 24-hour snack from the International Cafe.
The adults-only Sanctuary is your own chill-out area with views of nothing but horizon. Dining venues include the traditional grand dining room, several casual spots, plus specialty options like the Crown Grill Sterakhouse and Sabatini’s, offering Northern Italian fare.
Four Princess top-deck outdoor dining offerings have been revitalized, renamed and enhanced, including:
The Salty Dog Grill (formerly Trident Grill) – guests can indulge in a variety of signature Princess burgers grilled up with 100 percent all-beef patties and buns freshly baked onboard, or choose from new Street Tacos made with grilled chipotle-lime chicken or roasted sweet potato-green chile at the new Salty Dog Grill. For a nominal charge, “The Ernesto” burger, from Chef Ernesto Uchimura, voted “#1 Burger at Sea” by Cruise Critic, is also available, where guests can accompany their selections with loaded fries in tempting varieties include chili cheese and bacon & cheese. Classic hot dogs round out the menu offerings at the new on-deck dining venue.
Slice (formerly Prego Pizzeria) – featuring west coast and east coast offerings, Princess guests will enjoy the cruise line’s signature classic Neapolitan-style pizza that has been voted “Best Pizza at Sea” by USA Today. New menu items include Deep Dish Focaccia layered with marinara, meatballs and cheese, California Artisanal Toast including Cali-Avocado or Caprese, as well as Sliced Stromboli, an east coast take on an Italian calzone filled with deli meats and cheese.
Coffee & Cones (formerly Sundaes Ice Cream Bar) – offering treats of gourmet ice-cream sandwiches, complimentary ice cream cones and now brewing specialty coffee on the top deck, serving New Grounds Crafted Coffee.
The Mix (formerly Mermaid’s Tale) – the poolside bar has been refreshed and the brightly lit surroundings create a festive atmosphere for guests celebrating the day or catching up with friends and family.
So many options aboard this amazing ship!
Make a Splash and Get Wet on Liberty of the Seas; Wild to Mild!
Just enough time to get away, have fun and relax
Cape Liberty, NJ/New York City
Experience Greater Fort Lauderdale’s 23 miles of promenade-lined beachfronts and explore a destination that boasts luxury hotels, an impressive art scene, world-class restaurants, craft breweries, nightlife, shopping, casinos, and the Everglades on its doorstep. Cruise along the “Venice of America,” explore shipwreck dive sites in the “Wreck Capital of Florida,” and get lost in botanical gardens with lush tropical plants and native wildlife.
Fort Lauderdale is Florida's lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender and family capital, and is proud to have hundreds of LGBT-owned and operated businesses in an open and welcoming community.
Plan to stay a few days before or after your sailing to enjoy this resort-style town; have a beach day, shop and grab a drink in Wilton Manors... you'll be glad you did.
Your magical day at Princess Cays starts when you come ashore at Love Boat Marina, and are welcomed to this private resort on the island of Eleuthera, Bahamas - specifically designed for classic cruising perfection, featuring an entire island’s worth of vacation fun and amenities. You’ll find a BBQ pit already fired up for lunch and plenty of space to soak up some sun while you work up an appetite. Somewhere among the palm trees you might spy the exclusive adult-only retreat. By now it’s clear that Princess Cays is good for more than just a beach day, but plan on fitting one in anyway — this wouldn’t be a prime cruise destination without great things to do, and great ways to get wet, like swimming, kayaking and sailing.
