Best for: Ev­ery gay per­son! You have to do a gay cruise once, so why not on your hon­ey­moon? At­trac­tions: Be­ing on a seaborne vil­lage with around 5,000 gay men is not just mind-blow­ing, it’s cock-blow­ing a lot of time, too. If you want it, that is. While some chide gay cruises as “float­ing bath­houses” the truth is they can be what­ever you want them to be. If you’re a whore, then you’ll be well catered for. If you’re a show queen, you’ll see ev­ery show. If you’re a happy new cou­ple, you’ll meet other happy new cou­ples who’ll want to dish about their lav­ish re­cep­tions, ex­ten­sive guest lists and en­graved Tiffany rings. Oh, and the cruise does stop at some of the most beau­ti­ful is­lands in the Caribbean, in case you want to drag your­self off the ship at some point. Dis­trac­tions: Some­times all that gay in your face can just get too much. Yes, we speak from ex­pe­ri­ence. While a week of just gay men sounds fab­u­lously he­do­nis­tic, it can trans­late into too much par­ty­ing, reck­less­ness and stuff­ing your­self rot­ten at the all-you-can-eat buf­fet. Not for the faint of heart, nor eas­ily sea­sick. Ro­mance Fac­tor: True fact – we met monog­a­mous cou­ples on our cruise! We also met cou­ples cel­e­brat­ing wed­ding an­niver­saries and cou­ples happy to meet other cou­ples as in re­ally meet them. As a newly-wed cou­ple, de­cide early how this’ll play out for you. Set the ground rules be­fore it’s ship ahoy other­wise it could be the di­vorce courts when you dock.

Gay or nay? Gr­rrl, please!
