Atlantis Events is masterful at creating marketing materials depicting men under 30 with less than 2% body fat, perfect sun-kissed skin with no hint of tan lines and a million dollar smile. While the cruise had many who fit this image perfectly, there was a wide range of men of different ages, shapes and sizes.
Here is a random sampling of men who may not appear in an Atlantis Events brochures or videos but who provide an accurate representation.
Chuck and Michael have been married for 5 years and live in Pensacola, FL. They are regular Atlantis cruise goers and commented that this year’s cruise was far better because it wasn’t sold out so there was more room to move around and easier to enjoy the ships amenities.
Jeff and Abram (from Seattle) once upon a time were a couple but now are best friends. They were fixtures at this bar on deck 5; always smiling and chatting with everyone. Some of their favorite things about the cruise? People watching (no surprise there).
Theo and Demos live in Cape Town South Africa and have been together for 2.5 years. They are part of a larger group of six other South Africans. They are a very cute couple to watch together and I bumped into them wherever I went. Their favorite thing about the cruise ship? The shows.
Jie, Jett and Jehd flew down from chilly Toronto to enjoy the Atlantis Cruise. They too were part of a larger group of six friends who planned this trip together. This group of single men were enjoying the company of friends and a reprieve from Canada’s winter.
David and Eric live in New York City and are newlyweds. When I met them on the ship they were busy signing up for the 2013 Atlantis Cruise to New Zealand and Australia. Their favorite part of the cruise? Comfortable being themselves since everyone else is gay.
