Thanks for sharing your experience on Allure of the Seas.
didn't seem so bad, did it? falling in love and all. Lol

I and my husband are newbies to cruising and decided to go for RCCL Allure of the Seas, since we'd love to see Sint Maarten and the Planespotting beach.

We are booked with a PiedPiper group in November, so surely there will be lot's of fellow GLBT passengers. Still I appreciate you sharing your experience with us.

I'm very much looking fwd to this cruise, and hopefully some day I get the chance to experience a Cunard cruise on the elegant QM 2.

I see you have listed ocean princess for Feb 2013 - that would be what date. My partner and I will be sailing from Tahiti to Honolulu Departing Feb 18. Would be great to have other gay folks on the ship! Let me know.

That's too bad. We and our friends are on the sailing just before you.

That's too bad. I hope there are at least a few fellow Dorothy folks on our sailing. Have a great trip!

Default Allure not quite Cunard

Thanks for the great review of the Allure, that was really helpful.

I have always thought the QM2 would be full of 'A Class' gays ( ref. Armistead Maupin ) and yes a very gay friendly ship, after all the QE2 was rumoured to have a couple of very open gay bars on board during it's day.

I'm on the Allure in Nov this year and my only reservation is the dread it would be like a Disney ship full of kids and their drunk parents. But we have been assured by friends who have all been on many cruises that RC is great.

Like the review says, we chose RC as we knew it would be more informal, although I'm quite happy to dress in black tie for a dinner, I would choose not to while on vacation it's meant to be a time to relax.

I can understand the Policy not to publicise any FOD meeting or any other private meeting on the ship's newsletter and let the organisers do this for themselves.

But if everyone walks past the place they are set just because it looks quiet, then it will always be quiet


RC/Allure / Nov 17 - 24
