my husband and i are trying to suprise a gay friend going on a cruise with us
we don't know where to start. we are looking for a gay friendly cruiseline.
we are planning on going end of july beginning of august from the east coast
he has just broke up a longish term relationship
Princess seems to be the most gay friendly overall, but I've not had any problems on any of the mainstream cruislines. The only isolated gay related problems we have ever had were on Norwegian. I must add that they were isolated incidents and probably had nothing to do with N.C.L.
David and I tend to cruise on Princess, Celebrity, and H.A.L. but have had fine cruises on many other lines.
I have found Holland America to be very gay friendly. I have taken 5 cruises with them and no problem. In fact some of the crew is gay. I have also gone on Princess and did not encounter any problems there either. I will stay with Holland America. Did not care for the huge Golden Princess. Just tooooooo big.
You could always look at an RSVP or Atlantis cruise -- although I have never been on one and don't know how straight friendly they are.... And it may not be what your friend is looking for either (although it would be a suprise
