Written by gaytourism

Open Sea Cruises promises to be one of the most wild parties on the seas this summer, with the most hunky gay guys imaginable on board.

Starting in Barcelona on 29 September, the cruise glides through Ajaccio and Toulon in France, Palamós in Spain and then ends with a massive two-day farewell party in Ibiza.

Open Sea Cruises announced superstar RuPaul as the headlining DJ for the week-long cruise extravaganza.

The other entertainment includes Eurovision winners Conchita and Loreen, as well as the Vengaboys and Icona Pop.

There are also fabulously-themed nights like a sexy cabaret night, a huge Eurovison party, a 90s night and an Extravaganza night.

The cruise will also feature the hunky Bear-Naked Chef, offering a wide variety of sizzling cooking classes.

But what type of other guests will you see?

Well, here are just three:

Jeroen Kerkhof

Jeroen Kerkhof (better known as Jaye or ‘Jaye to the Kaye’) was born and raised in the Netherlands, but just came back from living in America for almost three years.

He’s a freelance graphic designer and describes himself as a ‘creative fanatic’.

Kerkhof is single and open to whatever comes his way. He’s an avid traveler and says ‘traveling is one of the best ways to educate oneself.’

He continued: ‘Seeing the diversity but also the similarities of all the different facets of the world makes you feel much more connected with one another and teaches you what’s important in life.’

This is not Kerkhof’s first cruise but he says he’s excited to go on this one to ‘touch upon so many interesting destinations in such a short time with a great crowd and wonderful entertainment.’

As for where he’s looking forward to traveling the most, he said Ibiza ‘stole’ his heart the last time he was there.

He’s also excited for Ajaccio ‘for its culture and history and Corsica because he’s heard a lot of good things about it.

Barcelona has it all, according to Kerkhof.

‘I really like Barcelona because it contains the most important facets of a great vacation to me,’ he said. ‘Sun, beach, culture, art, architecture, good food, laid back vibe and a lot of beautiful Spanish men.’

He added: ‘So imagine the thrill for a drag show by the Mother herself!’
