    Sadly, not the first overdose death on one of these cruises and likely won't be the last.

    Gay cruises and circuit parties - notorious for lots of drug use.

    It's not like the danger of overdose of most of these drugs isn't known.

    Guys are going to take drugs - but they should know what and how much they are taking.

    I hope he didn't have a partner or children left behind to grieve.

    I'm sorry, but I find it difficult to feel much sympathy for people who do this shit. Gay men and their drugs.....I'll never understand it. Makes us all look bad too.

    It is sad. I don't do gay cruises but have friends that do. Been to enough circuit parties to know the mentality of attendees. Mostly older 35 and above. The let's let it loose and party mentality. Guys that generally aren't in great shape to begin with and then blast their systems with party drugs and alcohol. A recipe for disaster. Throw in some sex and the old ticker checks out. I have seen it happen more than a few times at circuit parties. Glad I stick to beer.

    The macbre thought is that the corpse was probably stowed in the fridge for the rest of the trip. I'm sure that there are occasional deaths on all big cruise ships, so they must have some protocol for dealing with the bodies. I would guess that only the larger ships would have a fridge dedicated to deceased passengers. Anybody know?

    I simply do not understand the purpose of a gay cruise beyond the ability to consume copious amounts of drugs and alcohol while pretending to be happy and being charged double the going rate of a regular cruise on the very same ship plying the very same route.

    Read this on Queerty, sad, very sad. I do wonder, what's the reason for wanting to take these drugs? Their side effects are horrific, especially if you don't know what they are.

    Even though I personally have never had any desire to go on a gay cruise, I can definitely see the value in them.

    Many gays go to such events to hook up and/or find a boyfriend. If I was single then I would really enjoy the idea of meeting a potential partner in person (as opposed to the same boring online sites or in a sleezy bar).

    All modern cruise ships have a morgue for stowing corpses until they reach port. It is not uncommon for people to die on cruises especially ones that cater to senior citizens so they are fully equipped to handle that situation.

    Back in the day aboard the older, smaller, ocean liners if you died on board you got buried at sea.
