Sapphire Princess - Feb 7 and Feb 14 - Mexican Riviera
Easy going couple looking to meet other "Family" for good conversation, drinks, and some good laughs. If your on either cruise pop in and say hello.

Can anyone tell us the names of the Personal Choice dining rooms and what their hours are for dinner?

With only 3 more days until sailing the excitement is starting to build. We'll be closing the lids on the suitcases tomorrow and putting the ironing board back into storage to collect dust until the next cruise.

There are now 4 friendly couples going. We have been chatting on the "other" Gay Boards. If there are other LGBT sailors on this ship, chime in and say hello. We don't bite.

Have a fun trip Jerry and Kirk! Were you able to find the answers to your dining questions?

Your itinerary looks nice. I hear what you're saying about the ironing board, LOL! We won't leave for another 2 months, so were now just getting our list together for our suitcases!

Bon Voyage!!

Triton..........Thanks for your input. No, we never found out the answer to our dinning question. I suppose we could call the cruise line direct and get the info but we are running out of time as we sail today and there are a ton of errands to run before we drive down to the Port of Los pounding rain!

You and your readers might be interested to know that Princess Cruises offered us a last minute deal (less than 24 hours prior to sailing) to upgrade from an inside cabin to a balcony cabin and the return of 1 passengers fare if we would postpone our first cruise until March 4th. Sadly, we have to pass up this terrific hoo!

We'll be following the Thread on your upcoming cruise.

Jerry and Kirk:

Bet you guys are enjoying your first full day, most likely at sea.

Please let us know about your cruise when you return. Hope you boys have a fun adventure!

Just back from 2 wonderful weeks of R&R. Princess still puts out a good product and we would recommend the line. They are very gay friendly.

There were 6 GLBT mettings on both cruises. They were hosted by Rachael, a newly employed Jr. assistant C.D. who knocked herself out to make everybody happy.....and she is GORGEOUS to look at too. Unlimited champagne was served on the first meeting but nothing on the second....go figure??? About 20 or so family attended most of the meetings....all very nice.

The highlight of the cruise for us was the 2 invitations from the Captain to have lunch with him....along with 16 others that were the most traveled loyal passengers. The Captains hostess greeted us at the entrance of the Pacfic Moon dining room and escorted us to meet the Captain and pose for a picture with him. Then we were ushered to our table where we found place cards with our names printed on them, as well as in the inside of of the menu....class act! The food was delicious and elegant, and wine was served with the meal as an extra touch. There were 2 FAB desserts that we drooled over. The photos with the Captain were presented to us as a gift before we left the table. I guess we've finally arrived!
