Default Grand Princess, Jan. 25

My boyfriend and I are on the Grand Princess, 1/25-2/1/04. We didn't want to go on an all-gay cruise, but we are somewhat nervous about being the only gay people on this trip. Will anyone else be there? Thanks.

Don't worry ~ you won't be the only gay guys on the ship. Look for the FOD (Friends of Dorothy / Rainbow Get Together in the Patter (usually the first sea day).

Our last cruise aboard the Grand Princess (October 2003) there were 6 male couples and we all became really good friends. The guy who hosts the party/get together is named Lawrence. He's one of the performers on the ship. He said that most trips there are usually 20-25 people who attend the party.

Have fun and enjoy your cruise.

Oh yeah, and one last thing... don't miss the opportunity to have your photos taken on formal night. It's a perfect time to get you pic taken as a couple and the photographers are more than willing to help you get the perfect shot!

Thanks very much for this tip. We'll look for the notice in the Patter.

You needn't worry. It's doubtful you'll be the only gay couple on the ship but even if you are, we have met many wonderful straight couples that helped make our cruises memorable. Just be yourselves, don't worry about what anyone "thinks" and have a great time!

don't take for granted that you will have an "fod" gathering...ASK for a post in the princess patter (to the cruise director staff). they'll probably say they schedule these automatically, but asking for it will just about guarantee it. too bad you're not going with todd and jeff...great guys you would have enjoyed! and i think they made friends with that performer (lawrence?) so look him up. have a great cruise.......mike and jon
