    Has anybody been on or planning on going on this Danube river cruise? I'm trying something new, never really been into the gay cruise thing, but this one seemed cool without the drunken messes.

    In Prague in the mid-eighties at a dock a teacher lady invited me along on a coed high school class cruise up the Danube. I was 22 at the time but despite being kind of tall and muscly even then and growing out a beard while backpacking I was frequently mistaken for 17 (baby face) so in retrospect it made sense. Anyway, it wasn't an RSVP cruise but it may as well have been. Decades before most gay men discovered on the internet that almost every man in Eastern Europe worked out and sold muscle worship videos, almost every teen boy on that boat stripped down to their tighty whities to sunbathe to reveal some seriously jacked bodies. When I was a high school student in Miami in the '70s we didn't strip down to our underwear on field trips, and since most of the Western European natives I'd met up till that point had been skinny smokers I had to stay seated nearly the entire trip. Seriously!

    Haven't been on an RSVP river cruise, but was on a Uniworld one. Don't know who RSVP contracts with, but the two major lines (Uniworld and Viking) are rather luxurious). The boats are far too small to accomodate the hordes normally on a gay ocean cruise. The trip is relaxing and slow. Since it is a gay cruise, you will probably find the other passengers more sophisticated (they have to be a bit worldly to be able to afford it) than on a regular river cruise, where they tend to be just well off but pedestrian and boring, Unless RSVP has arranged special tours of gay interest, you might some of the shore excursions on river cruises not to be worth your time and you could explore more on our own.
