Billed as “the largest gathering of drag superstars in history!,” Al and Chuck Travel’s Drag Stars cruise is back, this time with 40 “RuPaul’s Drag Race” queens instead of the 10 they had in March. The Carnival ship Glory will sashay around the Caribbean from December 2-9 with the ever-charming Pandora Boxx as hostess.
In an interview with the Miami New Times, an Al and Chuck spokesman says the cruise, which has room for 1000 guests, might already be sold out, but you can still get on the waiting list! He also says that the queens, who will include Sharon Needles, Chad Michaels, Latrice Royale and many many more, will interact with guests throughout the cruise as themselves and not their drag personas. Sounds fun! The fact that it’s a “cruise-within-a-cruise” (meaning: there will be unaffiliated cruise guests on the ship) makes it sound like a reality show premise in itself. Don’t forget your Sharon Needles Halloween mask!
