Default Western Caribbean

Three of us are going to be on the Carnival Inspiration departing New Orleans on August 4. Were originally going to Alaska but one of us couldn't get that time after all and we only have a two week time frame in which to do it. Has anyone ever been on the Inspiration? Do you think there might be a lot of kids on that ship on that sailing date (not that big a deal I suppose). Any other gay people going on that cruise? Do you think many gay people would be on that type of cruise or are other lines more popular with gays. Any info would be helpful. We haven't actually booked it yet but probably will in the next couple of days. This is our first cruise. Thanks.

I've been on six Carnival cruises and have loved all of them. The staff is always very gay friendly. The room steward has always offered to put our beds together. (They have good gaydar).
There has been other gay people on board. The gay popultion can vary depending on groups. We have encoutered over 100 gay people to about 10. Our last cruise we had our parents and sister and two kids. The kids are occupied by camp Carnival all the time! The ships are huge and we actually had a difficult time finding each other when we wanted to. You will love it! Be prepared for the heat in Mexico and be sure to stop at Carlos & Charlies

Thanks Mark for the info. Is Carlos and Charlies a gay bar? Or just fun. Do you know if any gay people have any type of "welcome aboard" get togethers or something like that in your experience? And if so, do you know how they are put together? And when you get seated for dinner can you ask what type of tablemates you might want (like single, etc)? Just a few thoughts. And again, thanks for your help.
