Default Feb 14th Constellation

Hi Denise & Alby, I read your post on the main thread and thought I'd jump over here and say hello! A meetup at the Martini Bar sounds great. As we are from Ohio and there is currently about 14 inches of snow on the ground, we are really looking forward to this cruise!! Are you both from Florida or are you transplants from somewhere else originally? (We both talk about moving south but have yet to do it)

Hope to see you onboard in a week!

Bethany & Rhonda,

I'm orginally from NY, but living in the Sunshine State over 20 years. Alby was born in Havana but grew up in Miami since she was 5. We LOVE living here! It's especially nice to be able to hop on the ships any time. Looking forward to connecting on board!!

We live in Tampa. :-) Love the proximity to the ports.

Anybody else on Oasis 5/11? Have a good/traditional roll call going, but not sure there's any other 'family' there...

Default First Cruise

Hi,

I'm Randi and I live w/my partner Julie in Socal. We're taking our first cruise out of Ft. Laud on March 17th( celebrity Silhouttte). We've booked the aqua class and are really excited. I've been looking at the regular roll call for that cruise and was glad to see a couple of gay couples( didnt see any lesbians though). I wonder if we'll be the minority. What is your experience on Hetero cruises when you hold your partner's hand or kiss? We are affectionate with each other and I would hate to have someone say anything. Although, if they did, I'd totally speak back( I'm an attorney and Julie is a cop). What about showing PDA in the towns? We're going to San Juan, St. Thomas, St. Marteen.

I have never had an issue on our cruises.. not once.. noone treated us any differently. The CD on the Glory actually helped my wife propose to me on the mega screen on Lido.. Kissing on camera and all.. lol On the islands is a bit different. Never had a problem but some of the beliefs and cultures on the islands can be negative towards us.. so you may get looks, or comments.. So just be aware. but we have never felt afraid or anything. Enjoy your trip.. I loved those ports especially St. Thomas.. we went to Coki Point and snorkeled of the beach and fed the fishies.. they love milk bone biscuits. lol

I agree, I don't think you'll have an issue at all on the ship. I'd be careful in San Juan as there has been some less than friendly stuff (large demonstration against equal rights). St Thomas should be less of an issue. st Martin I'm sort of ambivalent on, could depend. In general, just like anywhere, most are fine but there is always a bad apple somewhere.

Happy Sailing, you'll love Silhouette.

Post pics please I will be dressed in typical formal gowns but I am trying to figure out something formal that my gf can wear that isn't a dress or overly feminine. But not too non-feminine either. Thanks so much!
Hey Kacie,

My partner (Helen) and I will be on the Dream on April 20. I have found one gay, male couple who will be cruising with us. I would love to hear how your cruise turns out. Will you attend a posted FOD gathering?

i understand your partners dilemma. i too do not wear dresses but i have found in Dillards easy throw on pants a vest and jacket and they are easy to pack and dont wrinkle. real comfortable but you look feminine in your own butchy way.
we are going on Celebrity Eclipse this month for two weeks.
