Epic gay secrets?

Recommended Posts

I'll be sailing the famed Epic next week and was wondering if there is any secrets that would help me enjoy my trip?  Gayish bars or areas that seems to attract more than the average bear?

Your question is vague and could even be read as lurid. What sort of secrets are you looking for? What sort of "areas" might we frequent? I am more than the average bear and I favor a rotation of deck chair/trivia/MDR/entertainment venue/bar on a daily basis. if by secret areas you mean backrooms, dungeons, or steam rooms I would stick to Berlin or Detroit.

Chad, my intention was not a lurid as you read.  I was looking more to if there is a bar or lounge or such on the ships that tends to attract the gay crowd more than the others.  I am well aware of the "shady" areas that one may frequent.

Never saw anything but regular folk at the bars.

Keep on favoring your trivia with your nose looking down on those who might share his interest.  It’s not your job to be the PC social propriety police is it?

@Chad_O Detroit?  LOL!  Do tell. I don't think I've seen those two cities in the same sentence before. 

 

My Epic secret would be to avoid the ship.  It's filthy dirty (and not the good kind of filthy).

It’s brand new how is that even possible?

Epic was launched in 2009.  Still, I've been on MUCH older ships that were cleaner.  Epic has ground-in dirt from years of neglect.

 

Don't even get me started on the weird bathrooms.  I hope you are sailing with someone you know VERY well.

Everyone loves an “open concept” right??

Not really my job but certainly an avocation. I didn't mean to offend anyone but I have seen horrible behavior on ships that put us all in a bad light. I support your (and others') choice to cruise steam rooms. If my reluctance to do so rubs you raw then that must be how you take it. The choice is yours I meant no offense.

I think the fact you’ve noticed “horrible behavior on ships” makes you think that was the OP’s only intent when making the original post. I think it’s interesting you equate secrets with lewd behavior as if a gay crew dedicated lounge or something of that nature wouldn’t qualify. I think it’s also interesting how you label gay men (is “us all”) as the worst of offenders.  I too have witnessed some pretty provocative steam room behaviors and it was generally by men I’d notice with their wives and families on the ships.  Perhaps its best not to second guess an OPs intent.
