Default Gay Dads with 8 year old Carnival Spirit to Alaska August 27

We're a two dad family with an 8 year old from Nortern California headed to Alaska on the Carnival Spirit wondering if any other gay families with kids are booked on this trip.

Thanks,

Daniel

Hi Guys:

We're two gay dads too; but ours are now 18 and 19! Hope you both are able to find some gay families, or "gay / family - friendly" people on board.

Have you been on Carnival before? Do they have an active F.O.D. meeting on their ships?

We have done quite a bit of research on gay and family-friendly cruiseships and are happy with our selection(s). If you're interested, PM me and I will be happy to share this with you.

Have a great voyage!

Hi Triton

Thanks for the response. We haven't had any others follow-up but aren't too concerned about meeting similar families. We always spot them on-board. Our son is very gregarious . Our last cruise was to Mexico for 8 days and it was like traveling with a 4 foot version of Graham Norton.

So its true they survive to their teens. Thanks for giving us hope.

Daniel

Whoops. Forgot to add. FOD meetings to occur on Carnival however on our last cruise the meeting was scheduled in the Chapel and was bumped for a wedding. Go figure. We've opted to marry the day before the cruise in San Francisco .

That's wonderful, congratulations to you both Daniel! What a great way to spend a honeymoon, on a cruise.

Like you, we always spot family on board as well; we really haven't been to too many FOD meetings. Sometimes they're just not what we feel like doing, IMHO.

Yes, the kids survive to teens...by what force, I'm not sure. We were commenting last night that our 18 yo daughter was reverting back to 15 again (of course she had Dad's Lexus out running around all day and night with no communciation whatsover)...but that's a different story.
