Default Gay couples on Saga cruises

Hi all

We're comtemplating our cruise for 2006 and having been a little disapponted with Cunard's 2006 itineraries we've been lookng at the Saga brochure. There seem to be some really interesting destinations and we wondered if any of the users of these boards had been on a Saga cruise and could tell us anything about it. By the way im 44 and my partner is 57 so we don't have a age problem with Saga.

Many thanks for you help

Andrew and Paul

My partner & I took a cruise on the Saga Rose a few years back. As Americans, we were already a minority. We had no problems as a Gay couple. The elderly widow at our table for 6 asked us on the second evening "how long have you boys been together". Saga has some very interesting cruises and we may do another one day.

Thanks for your help. We're Brits and like Saga destinations - what was the ship like, the shore excursions, were they any other gay couples?

Many thanks for you help

The Saga Rose is quite interesting. It has a whole range of cabins in a variety of different configuations, unlike modern cruise ships. The public rooms are comfortable. There is only one seating for meals and for shows.

We thought the shore excursions were very well organized and many are geared to dealing with elderly people who might have some mobility problems. They are skilled in dealing with older people and they do it with care. It is a small enough ship that there are seldom crowds.

There was at least one other obvious gay couple, but they were British and remained aloof from us. We spent more time with our 80-year-old widow, who was a lot of fun ,and a mother/daughter couple from America who were very nice.

Yes many thanks for your help - we did go on baltic cruise on Caronia in 2002 and really enjoyed it with Pied Piper - it was very gay friendly though some of the older ladies we're curious about so many men all sitting together in the dining room!!

We too did the Caronia. Baltic sailing but in 2001. Great cruise................love the ship, too bad Cunard let her go.

I understand the with the failure of the QM2, Carnival is rethinking the Cunard brand and might go back to the smaller tpye ships that Cunard's clients like.
