I'm taking one. Now a cruise isn't really my style but some friends are going and I figured I'd go. It's cheap, it's in the sun, good company, should be fun. What are your experiences with cruises? I'm soliciting advice on the following and more: what to do what to drink where to go how to sneak on booze where to book a room shit I'd wish I'd know before I got on the ship. For instance: Beer is like $8 as are mixed drinks. Premium mixed are more but you get a voucher for $5 to cash in for chips to gamble with if you buy the same amount or more. so yo uplay afew hands, cahs back in the chips you bough tand play wioth the "free" ones. If yo ubreak even the Premium drinks are the cheapest buy. If you lose it all, you've paid for gambling for a few hours. I don't think we're stopping at "Rotundah" but what's good to do at these Islands? The one that's owned by the cruise will be pretty sanitized but there are two other ports where we should be able to get into some trouble. I think i will get more help her ethan at some gay cruise forum. thank you in advance for all your well thought out and respectful advice.
