We were on the Golden Princess last week, doing the New England and Canada itinerary. It was the least gay cruise we've been on. We did not spot any other gay passengers. Even the cruise director was straight, although some of his staff were gay. Nevertheless, we had a great time. The ports were lovely. The food, very good. The lack of children on board made the pools quiet and relaxing.
We are sailing on the Golden Princess this weekend for it's 5-day cruise. I had not been anticipating that it would be a heavy gay crowd on board. I had always heard that the New England/Canada itinerary would be an older crowd.
