Anyone going on either of these? The RSVP is the first week of their 2 week caribbean. I'm getting off after the first week and moving over to the Ocean Princess (for the second time in 4 months). The Ocean Princess week I'm also bringing along an "escort" for the week so it could be VERY interesting, especially at the disco - O.P. is SO gay-friendly...
Great! I noticed on their site that RSVP has signed Kate Clinton for the next 2 cruises but not ours - wonder who they got for oure. I've been a little disappointed in the last 2 years "headliners." I also notice that none of their cruises except the Med. ones are sold out yet - also odd - they normally sell out within 1-2 months of opening them up for sales - signs of a weakening economy? Hmmm...
I am not surprised that RSVP is having problems selling out some of their ships. So many of the cruise lines now are taking extra steps to be gay friendly that gay cruisers now have more choices. And the RSVP prices are so much higher that it makes many people question whether the all-gay environment is really worth the price and whether it's necessary anymore.
I also have begun to question their value--for-price. I still love the total immersion (I live in a decidedly non-gay environment), and their entertainment is usually Soooo much better. I suppose it would be even more so, if I were with someone special.
Right now, I like both and do both gay and "compulsive-hetero" cruises.
My partner and I are also on board. We're looking forward to our first BIG cruise boat (our first and only being the RSVP Seaspirit in '95) and are ready to "party". If you want to say hi let us know and I'll send you a pic. We don't necessarily need the total immersion as we live in NYC, but welcome the open atmosphere.
Hey. I'm a 36-year-old professional guy looking for a roommate to split the cost of a room on RSVP's Caribean cruise that departs on February 13, 2011 from Fort Lauderdale. I'm a non-smoker, friendly, and well-mannered. I need to get away from the day-to-day grind at work. I have been on gay cruises before and have had fun on them. Please e-mail me if you are looking for a roommate at firstname.lastname@example.org.
