I spoke to one of the agents for this trip. He told me that this ship has "bachelors' quarters" for singles - rooms with three sets of double bunks. He said they are not bad - he spent time in one while training as one of their agents. The cost is $800 basic plus $65 port charges and $65 for boarding the night before it sails. The airfare from my area, Baltimore, is $742. The fellow expects that there will only be gay men on this trip but gay women would not be refused tickets if they bought them. - but unlikely. There is no formal dress code - bathing suit and T shirt is full dress. Little cash needed, he said, but best to take a pile of $1 bills for on-shore use to avoid a lot of foreign change. Security boxes available for valuables while sailing.
If I go, I would be going as a single unless someone would share a regular room with me. I am older but not "old", quiet, almost shy, and never a slob in any way. Anyone share a room?
My partner and I was on the Polynesia last January. We had a great time. It turned out that there was a large gay group from San Francisco traveling at the same time. Everybody was friendly and very nice.
The captain and crew were awesome. If the cruise director, Adam, is still there he was a real cutie and plays on our team.
