  1. The cruise was an eastern Carib trip to Nassau, San Juan, St. Thomas, and private island Half Moon Cay. HMC was not fully in operation because of the storm. Otherwise it was a superb cruise on a beautiful ship that is only 1.5 years old. I put my cell phone (turned off) in the cabin safe on embarkation and left it there until we were back in FTL. That is the only way to get full relief and rest while on vacation and not get hundreds of work emails every day. I do that on every cruise including the prior two-week cruise from Miami to Los Angeles on NCL. That was also awesome on the NCL Star as I was on her maiden cruise to Hawaii and had no connections to the world then either. Do join MMOB and see if others are on a cruise you would like to take and the possibility of a cabin mate.
  2. My preference is still Holland America. Bars may close around midnight but casino goes into the wee hours. The food is the best, and their new entertainment venues were terrific in my cruise a week ago. Before I go on a cruise I check out Meet Me On Board and look for cabin mates. If I find none, I go solo. I have a long list of buddies I have met before on cruises, and email them to see if any interested in going as well, even in our own solo cabins. I wore my speedos and then saw that 5 guys wore em the next day.
  3. I just got off the N/S after a week in E. Carib. It is a superb ship. Eat in the Tamarind for only $15. They have a great crusted steak! The spa was wonderful and I spent 2-3 hours a day in it with separate dry rooms and one large steam room done in green slate with sprinkler hoses. Leaving snow behind I needed that. ENJOY your trans A.
  4. Nothing to fear being solo on an Atlantis cruise. I prefer RSVP. Gay cruises are far more $ than regular cruises and the added cost is just not worth it. The entertainment quality level is less. I went on one in the Mediterranean and it was a disaster because of the management overplaying the gayness in Turkey. We were pulled off the tours and rushed back to the ship. Regular cruises today are far more welcoming to the community and in fact they have nightly gatherings that are very popular. Small gay groups are better to go on then a full gay cruise. Plus I wear my speedos every day on a ship on deck or in the awesome private spas that do not have the crowds.
