A friend of Paris and me will be cruising in the “Summit” (Celebrity Cruises), from Vancouver, Canada, to Los Angeles, USA, including Alaska (from Sept. 16th to 30th, 2005). Is it a good idea? Any other gay friends in that ship ?
We do not know very well niether Vancouver nor Los Angeles.
Could any one suggest us what to visit in Vancouver and Los Angeles. We are very interested in fine art museums, opera, good restaurants, smart bars in beatiful hotels, etc.
We would need also some information about the hotels where we could spend two or three nights before our cruise (in Vancouver) and after (in Los Angeles).
In both cities, we would like to a get a budget ( !!! ) hotel in a trendy, elegant and fashion district near the boutiques and nicest cafés. We have been told that the nicest districts are the South Granville Rise district in Vancouver, and the “Golden Triangle” in Los Angeles (bounded by Santa Monica and Wilshire boulevards and Crescent Drive, with world-famous Rodeo Drive running right up the middle). What do you think?
We would like to get also some information about gay life in both cities.
We are two nice guys from Paris, in our 40’s, and we love life, sport, art, intelligent conversation and martinis!
Thanks a lot for your help !
