We’ve hit the gay trifecta! For one week in October, everything we love has been combined into one event: gay cruising, Halloween and carte blanche to impersonate Kathie Lee Gifford and/or Charro for seven days in a row!
From October 25 through November 1, 2009, join Dallas-based Gayribbean Cruises for a seven-night cruise sailing from Galveston to Grand Cayman, Montego Bay and Cozumel, complete with a Love Boat-worthy masquerade party on the high seas Halloween night.
Is that sexy pirate your dream date or just Florence Henderson in a mustache disguise?
Different from a full-fledged, phallus-flopping floating fiesta, Gayribbean Cruises books a large group of GLBT peeps onboard the Carnival Conquest with the general public, so you get the benefit of inexpensive rates and power in numbers! Over 300 gays set sail with special private entertainment and events, including guest entertainers Hot Chocolate, Tasha Kohl, Dee Ranged and Layla LaRue.
Prices start at less-than-our-weekly-bar-tab rate of only $579 per person, based on double occupancy. Now, that’s for an inside cabin, so we suggest saving up just a little more for a room with a porthole or balcony, unless sleeping in the equivalent of a giant coffin satisfies some latent vampire sex fantasies.
Best of all, you can drive to Galveston or catch a super-cheap flight, which means more money to save for your own weekly bar tab. (Those fruity umbrella drinks sure add up.)
So start working on your most elaborate costume ever, make sure you’ve got a current passport and book today. Space is filling up quickly and this will likely sell out soon. Then for the next three months, avoid any viewings of The Poseidon Adventure, Titanic or Land of the Lost (not because that last one has anything to do with cruise ship disasters, just because it’s a really, really bad movie. Even by Will Farrell standards).
