Default Gay friendly lines?

I am looking forward to travel with my partner on a cruise soon. Would anyone tell me if Holland America is gay friendly..as we do not want to be ostracized as a couple. :( This trip is for the memory of my dad who always wanted to go back to Europe after he went to the war to defend freedom.

I have travelled on HAL ships many times and have met a number of gay couples, in fact on our last cruise, we spent quite a bit of time with 3 gay men and had a great time with them, so I do not think you will have any problems. As far as I am concerned HAL is very gay friendly.

Enjoy your trip. I am sure it will be a memorable one for you. What a nice way for you to remember your Dad.

Personally I can't say one way or the other, but having gay cliants, I do know they seem to prefer NCL and Princess, especially Princess. Why, I don't know and don't ask. I don't it is the cruise line but those cruising that could become an issue. This simply is my opinion. NMNnita

I have booked an Alaska trip on HAL with my mom and have received positive responses when GAY came up on the "other" cruise forum. Also, several gay travel companies have some HAL cruises in their plans so I'm sure you'll be fine!!
