    Someone approached me not too long ago asking if I'd be interested in going on a Gay Cruise. My first thoughts were, "Hmmm sailing the high seas on the S.S. Syphilis isn't exactly my idea of a fun vacation..."

    Then I thought I was being too quick to judge, especially since I had never really been on one.

    So what are your feelings/experiences with them? Success stories? Horror Stories? Any cruises that are better than others?

    Why would you assume everyone was diseased? That's like saying I'm not going to a club because everyone will have crabs.

    What a strange reason not to go.

    If you can afford it and have the time then why not?

    It's not so much that I'd assume everyone was diseased. I just assume that everyone would be hooking up all over the place. And maybe that's a wrong assumption, maybe it's not. A ship full of guys like that gives the 'meat market' impression.

    It's a lot different than a club. If you're not having fun at a club you can leave. And a club is just one night, for a little while. Club's are also a lot cheaper.

    A full week (or more) on a ship is a different story. I'd hate to spend a lot of money on something and wish I hadn't. You know?

    That's why I was curious to what people's experiences have been. Who knows, I could be way off.

    I have only every been on one cruise, it wasn't a gay one though. The idea of another cruise doesn't appeal to me.

    redheadguy saidWhy would you assume everyone was diseased? That's like saying I'm not going to a club because everyone will have crabs.
    For the prices you pay for these I would hope you get lobster instead of crabs icon_lol.gif

    Seriously though, I really enjoyed my cruise (atlantis mexican riveria) It was so relaxing and leisurely. Good food, eat all you want. 2 dances a day, entertainment, funny games and contests, a night club, gym, etc ..I just would eat (the near 24 hour buffet was awesome), sleep, dance, lay out by the pool. There were the various ports too. And the thing is that you can do as little or much as you want.

    And no it is not all a sex/drug party. I didn't hook up once the whole 8 days though I know people that did. My BF at the time was a sailor for 12 years and joked before that a sailors idea of a good time was not going out to sea for eight days .. but even he will tell you he had a good time.

    It was the most luxurious vacation I ever took. Try to take a friend you can live with though or a BF .. if you don't have a roomie, they will assign you one.

    BTW, some of the female crew pointed out to me that they actually enjoyed the gay cruises the best because they seem to have the most fun. She thought other cruises were relatively boring. I think I would rather do the Gay one.

    WTF is the difference between a cruise and the gay neighborhood bar? Unless you intend to be the "Boy In The Bubble". It's life, if you choose to live it.

    Gee, Syphilis isn't that bad. One shot of Penicillin and you're all set.

    I've always wanted to go on a gay cruise. It could even get me more inspired to actually go to ther gym... then again I'm not exactly fat.

    I've been on 4 of them...
    and I'd never go on any other type of cruise

    It's what you make it
    is there hooking up? Of course there is - if you want it
    if it's not for you don't worry you're not going to be accosted
    I found it more relaxed
    and catering to our needs for a change

    and I would suggest you try it once
    I bet you'll never go back

    been there done that have no real desire to do it again. went on the atlantis mexican cruise in october. it was fun. BUT......every great guy i met on the ship was already there with HIS great guy. seemed to me to be mostly couples looking for a third. not really my scene. thank god some guys were willing to loan out their bfs for a few hours without feeling the need to tag along. lol there were 2,600 guys on the ship. they had a "SINGLES" cocktail hour and dinner. 200 people showed up. thank god i was not one of them!!!

    Would never step foot or toe onto a gay cruise ship. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I like to be seen but that is too much of a scene.

    NAY!

    Gay or gay? lolol

    The only reason I would go on a gay cruise is that there's no children.
    I've been on a family cruise and it was a lot of fun because they had adult kareoke and other activities. Check out what they have on the cruise that isn't sex related and maybe that will help you decide.
