Default How do I meet Gay guys on a straight cruise


Hi, im Dale. Im going on my first cruise Sunday Feb. 13 on the Fantasy.( See previous post) How do I meet Gay guys on board . Should I ask if they will have a F.O.D. party?
Is it easy to meet and find people to hang out with on mainstream cruises. Thanks for your help . Im so excited only 3 days to go.

Carnival will not post the FOD meetings in the Capers newletter, you will just have to let your Gaydar work it out for you, or else have someone else reply to your post on this site.

"or men with their moms..."

, My partner and I are leaving in 2 weeks for a cruise, it was going down to the wire if he could go or not, so Mom was on standby. Cruising with Mom beats cruising not cruising at all.

Dale, I have cruised on Carnival ship and the staff and passengers we pritty much "gay friendly." IThe Matre'd in our dinning room seemed to seat "singles" ie. couples who did not have the same last name, at the same large tables, so we met another gay couple that way. Also gay men seem to use the gym, we met another gay group in aerobics class. Then there is always the steam room late at night.......have fun, JT

It is sooo easy. Just look around. There are obvious couples all over the place. I usually spot several before we even leave port. I did a Christmas cruise on the Ryndham several years ago and there must have been 20 or more us dancing away in the disco most nights. This past Christmas I was on the Legend of the Seas and -- same thing. By day 2 there were about a dozen gay guys hanging out together.

Cruise Director on the Legend (Carly) quickly organized a Friends of Dorothy party when we asked. Also, one gay couple was selected to be in the Newlywed Game show. They were fabulous, right down to the big on stage kiss.

Don't be bashful or feel that you have to hide who you are. People go on cruises to relax. They tend to leave their prejudice on the dock.

Oh, and by the way: when you do hook up with others, talk to the Maitr'd about seating you together. I've done this a couple of times without difficulty.

A group of friends and I will be going on the cruise the week before you do.. Dec. 14-21st 2014. It'll be my first cruise as well... I'm thinking there will be plenty of gays around everywhere.. I can't figure out how to find more people sailing on my cruise, any ideas?

very near the Purser's Desk there will be a Bulletin Board where Passengers look for scrabble, bridge etc partners-sometimes there will be an ad under LGBT meetings in certain Lounges-FOD is kind of Passe but I still see it on some ships-other than that, just sit in the main loung and when a winner walks by, stick your leg out & trip him(lol) gooood luck!
