We are very concerned with this posting. Has something changed with the Princess group? Homophobia certainly is not something Princess practiced with it's employees for we know of those who, very much "out", have been successfully promoted through the ranks.

We do not wish to cast disparaging doubts on this situation, so can you please elaborate on the conditions that ended with your expulsion from the vessel. If Princess is indeed playing a homopobic heavy hand with gays, we need to be fully versed in this as it affects our choices in future sailing.

Im so sorry about what happened. Can you share details? From my recolection I beleive Princess registers their vessels in Bermuda and England. These are not 3rd world countries. Maybe the Dawn is registered in one though.

I am sure that there is a bit more to the story than is being told. Having been on 36 Princess cruises, they are one of the most tolerant out there.

What are the 'details' as to what happened, was there a verbal confrontation that led to this? I don't know of any cruise line that would throw you off for being gay.

I have to agree with Cruiseaholic, and say we find Princess the most tolerant of the mainstream lines we've been on.

Why don't you tell what really happened. I know because I got the story first hand.

Something is fishy with this post. The author of it emailed me the other day and it said something to the effect: Do you really want to know about it? It was one line and it seemed weird. Plus the author only posted one post and has not returned.


ousoonerfanintexas how did you here about the story?

Ny our speciality department had to investigate this because this person posted the same thing on other cruise boards and told the same thing to some agency that specialize in Gay friendly cruises. As I am sure you know I could really care less the only reason I saw this post is I was doing a search for Airlines and the title HATE ON THE LOVE BOAT peeked my interest.
