Why I believe cruise travel is the perfect gay vacation
Do you agree? What are your reasons why cruising is perfect? Comment below!
“What’s your favorite vacation?”
For me, that’s so easy to answer: a cruise! Of course, that’s a different answer than I give for
- What’s your favorite city (New York)
- Where’s your favorite beach destination (Hawaii)
- What’s your favorite cultural spot (Buenos Aires)
I love land-based travel too, but for the limited amount of time I have for a vacation, a cruise can so easily bring different elements of cities, culture, and beaches into one single vacation. And I can get it all, as the cliché goes, but only have to unpack once.
A few nights ago as we watched the Tony Awards (so wonderfully gay, I thought) broadcast a musical production number from Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas, I was reminded of what a perfect vacation cruising is. I’m not going to say that the shows I’ve seen at sea even begin to rival the overall quality of what I see on my annual pilgrimage to Broadway, but they are still generally very good, and they’re included in the price of my vacation.
I also noted that the Tony’s showed the Oasis of the Seas as being in the Caribbean – the guests on board were able to enjoy Hairspray, plus glorious surf and sand all in one vacation. And on many Caribbean islands, there is actually interesting culture to be found if you peel back a few layers beyond the port area (albeit not always the most gay-friendly culture).
Watching that Tony broadcast, I felt incredibly lucky to be a traveler who has seen Broadway shows on Broadway, and marvelous performers on cruise ships, too.
There are other reasons I think cruising is the perfect vacation—notably the great value, and the high likelihood that I will truly disconnect from home and office for a few days (especially sea days).
