I’ve personally never been on a Disney ship. I simply fear the number of kids on board… unlike their parks, which I (and many of you) love, at the end of the day you can’t exactly leave the ship.
But I have to say, their new ship, Disney Dream, looks incredible, and the waterslide looks AMAZING. Not sure if I’d be willing to put up with the rug rats to give it a try. I prefer my kids to be Peter Pans like many adult gays I know…but never say neverland.

Hello cruisers. I’m going cruising this week, and doing it on a cruise line you’ve likely never heard of: Groupe CTMA. The cruise sails entirely in Canadian waters, departing Montréal and sailing up the St. Lawrence Seaway to the Magdalene Islands (Les Iles de le Madeleine). While most passengers on the ship will sail round-trip back to Montréal with stops in the Magdalenes, Québec City, and Chandler, I’ll be staying in the islands for several nights at a gay-owned B&B, la Butte Ronde.
I’ll keep you up to date on the experience, but I suspect it will be fantastic. The eye-candy alone in Québec should make it a delightful journey!
I suspect gay cruise passengers do more of these types of trips than anyone knows, on small ships or through ferry companies. A couple of years back I took a cruise in the Arctic on Cruise North – another line most people have never heard of. You can learn more about that experience by clicking here.

This is one of the coolest cruise options I’ve seen in a long time.
A company called New West Special Projects has managed to arrange for Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Star to provide additional “hotel” space during the winter Olympics, to be held in Vancouver, BC, Canada during February 2010.
Packages start at US$2,010 per person for a four-night stay, but just like a regular cruise you can cheaply add a 3rd person in the cabin, starting at $400. And like a cruise, onboard food is included. Packages also include some ground transportation, and the Olympics will be shown on shipboard TV…although I’m unsure whether they’ll feature NBC or Canada’s CTV.
The ship will make this unusual winter sailing into Vancouver from Los Angeles, and you can book the sail-in cruise, too. The sailing date is February 6 from LA, arriving Vancouver February 10. Prices for the sail-in from L.A. start at a very cheap $99, inside cabin.
I personally think we gays should quickly book out the ship and have quite a party!
The ship will dock on North Vancouver for the entire run of the Games, as Vancouver’s normal cruise terminal at Canada Place will be blocked by security.
Too cool. As always, if you book the sailing or to stay aboard during the Vancvouer Winter Olympics, be sure to post it to your MeetMeOnBoard.com profile!

Tom Baker, owner of Aquafest Cruises (an agency that organizes gay groups on mainstream ships, among other things), was super lucky–he got to check out the brand new Celebritiy Solstice on a recent agent preview cruise.
Tom’s a shutterbug, and has a couple hundred photos posted at SmugMug, including the shot at right. Check them out.
As for Celebrity…I’m happy to say I’ll be sailing on them for the first time next week, with a small gay group. Should be a blast. Stay tuned for updates!
