I stepped on board of The Ark Cruise, and this is what happened
All madness on deck! The Ark Cruise, a legendary party-cruise, sailed out again. This year, they even did two voyages. One in the end of August and one in the beginning of September. We stepped aboard of the first voyage and this is what happened…
A Party Boat? Yes.
The Ark Cruise will prepare you when you enter your cabin: condoms (a lot), sunscreen, beach bag, detox pills and some beauty samples. Trust me, you need all of this. This trip contains a lot of drinking, (guilty) pleasures, dancing, sunshine and little sleep. If you’re smart, you choose wisely while walking down the 4 buffets of food. Some vegetables and fruits never hurt anybody, but never skip the amazing desserts, balance is the key!
During the trip you don’t have to get off at all stops. The party at the big pool on the main deck continuous. Imagine yourself sitting in the water with a drink in your hand while an amazing DJ plays a live set. The party continues at night and these are some of the great sets we danced at: Booka Shade, Boehmer, Erik Hagleton, Fatman Scoop and Lady S.
Another night, other flirts, another bed to wake up in
Don’t Miss Out On Ibiza
If you do get off the big cruise ship, we recommend you to discover the beautiful Ibiza. This island is not only about party’s and beaches. We did a guided tour through the old town (Dalt Vila, World Heritage by UNESCO since 1999) and we loved it. This ‘small’ island has a big history worth knowing about. Discover it for yourself! Also the museum ‘Puget’ is worth seeing. These paintings are made by father and son, very charming.
For lunch we had a traditional fish dish of Ibiza: Bullit de peix. They serve the best Paella plates at Restaurante Formentera. The portions are mostly for two persons. End your day at Hostal La Torre. Here you’ll find the most beautiful sunset you’ve ever seen. It made us a bit emotional.
The Party Goes On
Another night, other flirts, another bed to wake up in. What happens on the Ark, stays on the Ark. As long as everybody enjoys it, I know we did. For a change we went to see some live music on our last evening. This is another vibe on the cruise you can enjoy to the maximum.
Verdict: Every day was another experience. It’s definitely not for those who want a relaxing holiday. You won’t sleep a lot, and your liver is going to be tested to it’s limit. BUT, we did go home with tons of new memories, a couple of which I will not share with everyone…
