8) Who is going on this sailing? We and some friends just booked. It is being billed as PrideCruise2006 It is a 15 night out of Barcelona, sailing Europe, southern Transaltantic and ending in Miami. We got a get deal throught PrideCruise2006 Hope there is a large group on board.
We are thinking of booking as well. 2 guys from Palm Springs. The rates are very affordable if we are looking at the same thing. I am not sure if we are allowed to mention the company that is doing it.
I think there is more than one Group on Board. The one Group is just a travel agency, not sure how good or how big their group we'll be. PriceCruise2006 is a tour operator that specializes in group Sailing's. This is the who we booked through. I believe you can book with them through any agent or directly. Write me at TOBEYatPHL@aol.com and I'll send you the info I have.
So far there are close to 20 guys we have met over the years from other sailing's that we know have booked. Not sure what the total will be by the time we sailing next Oct.
I heard from the Travel Company that has orginized this Gay Group sailing, "PrideCruise2006" that there have been more guys that signed up. Any CruiseMate guys going? We know there is a group of Bears that will be joining the group and I have heard from a few guys from Europe that I have talked to from another web site. Pridecruise2006 has a web site that you can use to check things out.
Dan and Peter know that I will be on this cruise with them. Phil, the arranger, found me a cabinmate to share expenses. Now just waiting for whatever Phil cooks up for pre-cruise accommodations and such.
I met Dan and Peter on a nine day cruise Phil arranged last September. That was a good experience. We had a groulp of 10 nice guys. I am also sailing wijth some friends on the Windjammer cruise in March. The only cloth on the deck will be in the sails and beach towels on the deck chairs. No tan lines after this one. That will be a first time experience for me.
RoninMD - where did you hear about this Windjammer cruise? I went on a similar one a few years ago and it was a blast, although most did not partake of the opportunity to cruise bare (and a couple who did, shouldn't have - nothing like watching someone drag their jewels along the buffet )
We are two other gay guys on this cruise. We booked threw our regular travel agent, but know of two gay group. PrideAmerica you have been talking about and Aquafest.com out of Houston, Texas. Should be lots of FOD on board. We are 54 and 57 from rural Texas and would love to set up dinner companions, excursion mates, etc. If your are interest lets us know. JohnandStephen firstname.lastname@example.org PS does anybody know how to set up a fod meeting with the ship? When we were on the Nor. Dream recently someone had set up a couple of meeting and it was nice way to meet fellow travelers.
Phil Cavalcanto at PrideCruise2006 is doing our air through NCL. BTW, he told me that NCL has just released more cabins for the group.
Also, we are booked in the Grand Garden Villa, and looking for one more person to join us. The Villa has three suites, each with it's own balcony. The Villa has it's own Garden with hot tub and private upper sun deck. Cost is being split six ways, making it affordable. If you know of anyone interested please email me at TOBEYatPHL@aol.com for more details.
Hi Dan & Peter: Wow!! Great to hear that you guys will be staying in the Grand Garden Villa. Lot Te Da!! It's nice to know people in "high places"!!
<Grin> We are so jealous. We will only have a lowly aft mini suite. I am sure
we will all have great fun on this special cruise. John & Priscilla
