U has announced the launch of two new themed cruises in Germany this summer aboard The A: Tattoo on U and U in Drag.

“We’re so excited to announce tattoo and drag queen themed cruises for our U guests,” said Ellen Bettridge, president and CEO of U. “The themes coincide with everything our U brand stands for which is encouraging our guests to completely let go, be confidently themselves and meet new like-minded travellers along the way. It’s important for us to continue to innovate in ways that inspire our guests and provide them with experiences that they won’t find anywhere else. The launch of these two cruises is just the beginning for our themed concepts onboard U.”

The new themed cruises will offer enhanced versions of the ‘Germany’s Finest’ eight-day itinerary that sails from Frankfurt to Regensburg, and include:

  • U in Drag: 6JUL, 2019 – U has teamed up with celebrity drag queens Jiggly Caliente, Darienne Lake and Phi Phi O’Hara, as seen on the TV-show RuPaul’s Drag Race. Along with several onboard performances throughout the sailing, the itinerary includes interactive activities co-hosted by the drag queens such as a karaoke night, drag makeup lessons, an exclusive bar crawl at one of the ship ports, and more.
  • Tattoo on U: 17AUG, 2019 – On this cruise, U guests will sail with celebrity tattoo artists Steven Tefft, winner of Season 2 of the show Ink Master; Reese Hilburn, seen on Spike TV’s show Tattoo Nightmares Miami; Bobby Moss; leading tattoo model Heather Moss; and tattoo expert Paul Gambino for a week dedicated to all things ink. In addition to the opportunity to get inked by these celebrity artists throughout the cruise, the itinerary includes an onboard welcome party with the artists, a tattoo parlor crawl in one of the ports, contests to win a free tattoo from one of the artists onboard and $200 towards a ftattoo shop, brunch Q&As, and more.
