WorldPride Madrid Pre-Cruise Program

June 30 – July 4, 2017

The magical city of Madrid hosts the world’s biggest gay pride festival this summer when WorldPride comes to the capital of Spain! Over 2 million people are expected to attend this multi-day celebration of our community and culture with street parties, cultural events, massive parties, and the world’s largest gay pride parade.

It’s an amazing way to experience all that Madrid has to offer, and Atlantis has been a part of Madrid Pride for the past 5 years. We’ve created a unique pre-cruise program that combines top accommodations, effortless transportation, and access to all the best events in one easy package.

We start with a Madrid stay at the fabulous Westin Palace hotel, certainly the finest and most central hotel in the city. You’re right on the parade route and just a few steps away from the street fairs in Cheuca and Plaza del Sol. There’s literally no better location!

Our package includes your hotel stay in Madrid (with an optional night in Barcelona), train transportation to Barcelona, transfers, full breakfast, internet, and much more. Once the parties are announced we will have special rates with all the major promoters and priority access to the main events.

The train to Barcelona is an ultra-fast train that will get you to the city in about 2 ½ hours in comfort. We have custom cars secured for Atlantis guests on several departures on both Monday July 3 and Tuesday July 4, depending on your preference.

There’s never been a better time to visit Madrid and it’s the perfect start to your cruise. Take a look at these amazing packages and join us for the world’s biggest Pride celebration.
