I am just wondering who has gone on the ones in the past and was it worth it.

I registered to go on this one in October. I have been on a few gay cruises before but never the poz cruise. I hear it is fun but I have been to most of the ports before so would only be going to meet other poz friends.

I hope it is fun. I'm still thinking of canceling though...but I have time to think about it some more.

I went on a gay cruise back in the 90's, with my lover ( so I have no idea if they're all just sex, sex and more sex-lol) But we did have a GREAT time!  I even won $1000 on a slot machine~

I haven't been on the one coming up in October, but if I'm not mistaken, it's not entirely POZ, only a group of maybe 200 pozzies(mixed gay and straight)

I have been on three cruises, one gay, one with family and the other poz. After the last cruise with the family, although, I seemed to spend more times in cabins of gay men I met while laying by the pool wearing a pride gstring. The poz cruise I went on with friends several years ago was superb, reminded me of weekend nights in the group sex rooms at Midtowne Spa. It was unfortunate for three men who passed away before returning Miami, but all three of them enjoyed themselves like there was no tomorrow. One thing I got out of all three cruises, was meeting lots of interesting and sexy men.

But, the Gay Cruises were worth the money, because not in my wildest sustiva dreams would I ever imagine what happened over a 5 day cruise. Yes, sex is an understatement, with the twinks running around the ship half naked providing room service and personal massages.

But, I had lots of fun....Take lots of condoms, because condoms on a cruise ship cost $6 each...

I don't think I'd ever want to go on a gay cruise, truthfully. I'm too much of a loner and I like my alone time. I feel absolutely uncomfortable in crowds, add a bunch of drunk gay guys and predators... that would be pure hell for me. Plus  I'd rather be in the ocean with real sharks   ;)

I do go on gay scuba trips, but that is quite different.

We went on the POZ cruise last year and had a fantastic time. We were there as a couple so I can only speak for the sex going on in our cabin.  ;) In my opinion it's not all about the sex but I'm sure it happens. I hope you have had a chance to read the 2008 POZ Cruise thread in the Off Topics forum.


I've never taken an all gay cruise as a passenger but I did work on an RSVP ship in 1993 and there was a lot of sex going on but it wasn't a floating bath house.

My best friend is going on a 10-day gay Mediterranean cruise next month. I'm looking forward toward hearing the tale. As he said "For $4000 I sure as hell better get laid!"

One thing I don't like so far s that member are looking for "fit, attractive" people to share rooms with.  I think it sucks that guys think they are gonna be paired in rooms with Brad Pitt.

If you are so shallow, you should just spend the extra money and get a room by yourself.

I haven't been on a gay cruise, but have been on two out of california to Baja. Had a great time and I think they purposefully put us with cool and fun gals for dinner.

We had a total blast both times.
