When planning their holiday last year, Bryan and Kevin Manley-Green made the choice that more and more adventure-seeking gay travelers around the world are making — they booked themselves on a river cruise. The Manley-Greens knew they wanted to explore Eastern Europe, but they wanted to do so safely in a region that's not known for being incredibly gay-friendly. So they chose a day Danube river cruise from Bucharest to Budapest being offered by Emerald Waterways , one of a growing number of companies now catering to fierce public demand in this hot tourism sector. If we venture off on our own and if push comes to shove, we could say we were brothers. The Manley-Greens opted for a "mainstream" cruise, since they said they prefer traveling with a wide range of fellow passengers.

Home Gay cruises. It's every gay boy's dream whether you want to admit it or not. From the moment we both came out many many many moons ago, it was always our dream to go on an all-male gay cruise. Since those days, the number of gay cruises available has completely mushroomed. As well as the large party orientated ones, there are now cruises going to places beyond the well-trodden pink destinations — like India, Indonesia and even the Galapagos Islands! There are even many gay nude cruises you can go on!

But if a gay party cruise is not your scene then you might wonder what other gay friendly cruise options there are out there…. This year we went on our first cruise with Celebrity Cruises for 10 nights around the Mediterranean. Ben had always wanted to go on a cruise, however I Sion was unsure how this would compare to a normal holiday and was not completely sold on the idea. Fast forward and the cruise blew all of our expectations out of the water and we are now complete converts!
So you're thinking of sailing off into the splashy blue yonder. Only, you want something more than an occasional "Friends of Dorothy" gathering amidst a mainstream cruise. It's time to feel free to be yourself, whether you're planning to cruise solo, with your sweetheart, or even with the kids. The good news is that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender LGBT travelers now have more options than ever for finding the perfect ship, destination, ambience, and price range.
