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'd vote Princess, too. Have had wonderful times on Carnival, Royal Carribean and Norwegian, too, but over and over, Princess seems the most gay friendly.

And what a nice thing to do!

Harry

By and large, Princess has no problem with a FOD meeting.

But more than anything, I think your sweet gesture will mean the most to him.

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.

I HAVE TO DISAGREE. I THINK CELEBRITY HAS THE MOST MODERN SENSIBILITY OF ALL OF THE LINES.

PRINCESS IS GREAT, BUT IF THESE GENTLEMEN LIVE IN AN URBAN CITY, CELEBRITY WOULD BE GREAT FOR THEM. WITH THAT BEING SAID, I WOULD STAY AWAY FROM THE ZENITH AND THE HORIZON.

I have worked for several cruise lines in my travel career. If you have the $$$$ to spend, you cannot beat Seabourn Cruise Line

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
