Has anyone ever went on a gay cruise, if so how was it?

Kwokpot saidI think the best way to decide whether you should take a gay cruise is whether you 'need' to ALWAYS need to be around other gay men in order to have a fun vacation. Look at it another way, if you ONLY enjoy going to a gay bar on the weekends because you just enjoy the atmosphere of being around other gay men, then a gay cruise would seem like a good fit.
If on the other hand, you enjoy spending time in a mixed environment and enjoy spending time with people that are not gay, and going to a gay bar is a once in a while or maybe even never, then definitely going on a gay cruise would not be your thing.
Remember, on a gay cruise you will be surrounded by gay men 24/7 for 7 days, and be immersed into 'gay male culture' the whole time. Yes, you will have much, much better DJ's spinning in the clubs, but if dancing every night in a gay club-like atmosphere is not what YOU enjoying doing, then the benefit of top notch DJ's on gay Charters would be lost on you. Same goes with the other entertainment. If entertainers like Kathy Griffin, Patti Lupone, and Rosie O'donnell do nothing for you, then there's no reason to pay more for a gay charter.
Gay cruises are more money. there are some that will point out that they can find a cruise on the same ship for about the same amount of money, proving that gay charters don't cost more. While that may be true, what they don't point out that you can find cruises on that same ship, or other ships going the same itinerary for half to 1/3 the cost. So if you're looking for a cruise vacation but don't want to spend top $, and have some flexibility of when you can travel, a non gay cruise will unequivocally be a better value.
somedaytoo saidI went on an Atlantis curse last year.
After spending a week in gay paradise where everyone was so natural holding hands and kissing out in the open without any thought, it was disappointing to return to normal life.

lifecast2020 saidA cruise of any kind seems like hell on water to me. The only good things I ever hear about cruises is about the food and how often they eat. Gross.
Kwokpot saidI have NO desire to go camp in a tent in the woods. Doesn't make me a better or worse person.
Jockasian703 saidIt's hella fun. IMO, all gay guys should at least try once.
Lumpyoatmeal saidThere are also gay groups on regular cruises.
Erik101 saidGo to a site called cruisecritic.com. Look for the gay and lesbian cruiser section. You'll see forum posts from guys who have been on every gay cruise out there.
