NCL Gem May 24, 2009 Mediterr: Gay/Gay Friendly Cruisemates
My partner and 2 kids and I will be sailing on the NCL Gem May 24, 2009 out of Barcelona, Spain and wondered if there were any other gay couples or singles or gay friendly people on board. We would love to get to know you and hang out as Europe is not familiar to us.
NCL is know for their Friends of Dorothy Socials and we have made some great friends on previous cruises today. Please let us know if you are going to be on board. Also if you have any advice on the Mediterrean Ports please let us know. We will be doing a pre and post cruise in Barcelona.
Wish I could say we were joining you (we have two kids too). We did a 14-day Transatlantic out of Barcelona last September and had a wonderful time. Is this your first trip to BCN or Spain?
We did a 4-day pre-cruse in Barcelona. The hop on / off bus was worth the money for us. When we arrived in BCN, we did the HOHO bus the next day, to get our bearings. The day after that we stopped at the places we wanted to see: La Familia Segrada, Montjuic, Gaudi's Parc Guell, etc. All were really amazing.
If you guys have the time, take the train to Montserrat. We did it on a Sunday. It's a magical experience. Depending upon how old your kids are, they would really enjoy the tram and funicular ride. The oldest boys choir in the world sings every day (I think) at noon. Great place for a picnic too.
