    Hello, new to the site, newish to the community. Been exploring ways to get out there, and I stumbled upon this: Atlantis Gay Cruise - Barcelona to Rome, 5 July to 13 July.

    http://atlantisevents.com/cruises_2008_navigator.aspx

    It seems like a great vacation, and it goes to some awesome ports of call. Was wondering if any of y'all have gone on one of these. How was it? Did you go with a bf, or by yourself? I'd love to go, and I've even kinda of justified the price to myself. I'm just wondering how it'd be to go it alone.

    On the flip side, anyone interested in going and sharing one of the cheap rooms? There's an option to go as a single and randomly get a roommate, but I'd rather know (any maybe even get along with) the person I'd be rooming with for a week.

    I highly recommend the Atlantis experience. My partner and I have been to two: the Barcelona to Athens cruise in Summer 2006 and to the Puerto Vallarta Resort last November.

    First of all, even though there is a fair share of circuit boys and hot muscular guys, the majority of travelers are quite normal and many have average bodies. So, you shouldn't feel intimidated whatsoever. You're going to encounter every make and shape of gay men around.

    And I'm sure there was a lot of sex going on, but as a monogamous couple ourselves we met many other monogamous couples who we spent time with visiting the ports of call and having dinner, etc.

    There's so much to say that I really can't say it all in this post. But we loved it so much that we're doing the same Puerto Vallarta resort again later this year and hope to catch another cruise in 2009.

    sounds like a cool thing to do and I've never been on a cruise. Well since I'm already in Germany gettting to Barcelona. I would be up for it but I need to know some information about it. I will have to see if the Air Force will let me take leave too...but that shouldn't be a problem. So get back to me...

    My Partner and I are going on a cruise from Barcelona to Nice on May 14th - it's a straight cruise, but I'm still looking forward to it. On another trip to Italy we went to Naples (an armpit of a city - but fanstatic pizza!), Capri - expensive but beautiful and Florence. We spent a week in Florence and could have stayed a few more days. Friends took a cruise and one of the stops was Florence - the only downside was that it was only a day stop and the port is quite far from the City - taxis are expensive and then they only had a couple of hours to see the sights - which isn't enough time.

    I've considered going in the past as well. Most of my friends are coupled and aren't really interested in the gay cruises. I'd like the destinations more than the all-night partying, though probably.

    Well, I'm young and stupid.......so this could just be fun!!!! icon_biggrin.gif

    But, it looks like work won't let me have any time off in July, so I might be doing the one in Mexico come October. Kinda far away, but at least that give me a fitness goal. Turn my mini keg into a six pack, and make sure my butt looks good in a speedo!
