I need a rest....
So I've kept you all waiting long enough. I thought I'd put together a quick rundown of all the fun that we had on our trip.
On board our ship, was 500 gay and lesbian travelers. On a cruise ship that had 1500 passengers, you can bet that we made quite a presence.
On day two, my husband and I were approached by an older gentleman that was cruising with his wife. He asked us how he could get into our parties, because we looked like we were having more fun. He went on to tell us about his daughter that is gay and he felt it was wonderful that a cruise like ours is possible these days. He was excited to let his daughter know about it so she might be able to join a future cruise. Unfortunately for him, our parties were private.
Each night was a different theme for the parties.
The video below was day one.
Other themes were 70's Disco, 80's Night, Halloween (of course), Pirates of the Caribbean and Cairo nights (Anything Egyptian). There were two nights with no theme as well. The theme nights brought out costumes like I've never seen before. I'll try to get some of them posted in the near future.

The entertainment consisted of Our long-time friends Jason and DeMarco as well as a new friend, Josh Duffy. There were two big name comedians and the whole thing was MC'd by a well known drag queen and the dance tracks never stopped with our own DJ who you can see in the video.
We enjoyed a small film festival and were also shooting an "It get's better" video drama during the whole trip and the Advocate Magazine was doing and article on the whole thing.
With all that entertainment as well as the ship planned entertainment, there was hardly time to relax. But, I am Stew and I know how to relax when I need to. So I made time.
We visited four ports and had shore excursions at each one that I will have to tell about in another post.
