I'm glad it won't be all young beautiful bodies so I won't feel out of place. However, I hope there will be a few to look at.

Just a bit of a warning, I've found the head of bearcruise.com to be a complete flake when it comes to booking anything. The people who work for him are good at booking the cruise. However, the owner deals with pre and post cruise hotels and is incapable of anwering inquiries. I ended up booking my flights, and pre and post hotel stays myself. I'm scared to think how any of the advertised excursions will be organized.

You can also look at Adventurebears.com .

I booked this cruise (Nov 9-16, 2013). I'm not rich, and they seem to have some good prices, but it is a group cruise, they aren't on an all gay cruise.

My bf and I are going on NCL on March 3rd. There is a bear group going. We booked through a "free" casino promotion so won't be in the block of rooms but I am hoping we can participate in some of the events!

My BF Odi and I are booked with the bear group on that cruise. Looks like it will be a pretty small group (50 folks ish). So will be nice to have some more folks to hang with. I think we're down the hall from you (looking at the cabin numbers on the roll call board). Looking forward to meeting you and Eli in March! Best, Michael

We just went on this ship last summer and totally made us BIG CELEBRITY FANS! From the cold towels and ice cold water they serve u as u come back on the ship, to the many wonderful dining options... can't say enough good things about this ship! Make sure you try Q'sine and if you are a meat eater defintely check out the Lawn & Club Grill (think thats what its called) Both are fabulous and worth the extra money to dine at! Hope you have a great time....its Celebrity, of COURSE you will have a great time!!

Been on Solstice and loved the ship as well. Just booked Silhouette for an Adriatic cruise in September and am really looking forward to it.

I am part of a gay group that gets together at least once a year... we have done mostly the Mexican Riviera (and will do the MexRiv again) but we are looking at Alaska for September 2013.

We generally are about 40 guys, all types, but bears predominate it seems. We put it together ourselves, look for bargains, and share the group benefits among the group members. We have been sticking with Carnival for the value and have not regretted it. Right now we are exploring the 7 day on the Miracle.

I will be checking out the Bear cruises mentioned....

This is a shout out. Been considering a couple of cruises out of San Francisco this April. Either April 10th for two weeks to Hawaii with Princess or March 31st to Mexico again with Princess.
However single fare is way too much.
Any gay guys seeking travel companion, someone to share a cabin ?
Would be interested.

Adds are there any other forums out there for gay travellers seeking travel buddies ?
