The concept behind Cruising with Pride Cruises & Tours Gay Group Cruises is to provide gay travelers with the company and comfort of other gay travelers from throughout North America. These Group Cruises are not all-gay charters like RSVP or Atlantis, etc., which were until recently the only way to go, and do not always fit into the lifestyle, itinerary or schedule of many gay travelers. On our gay group cruises we have a variety of itineraries and aim to place our groups aboard the highest quality ships, with a variety of accommodations, offering the finest service amidst splendid decor.

Who are the "Friends of Dorothy"? Simply put, this term is code for gays and lesbians. Read about it more here. For our purposes, you'll find a "Friends of Dorothy" or FOD group on most cruise ship sailings these days, so, be sure to look for the term on your next "regular" cruise. If you don't find it, ask the cruise director and they will usually put it on their schedule. When you do travel on your own on a regular cruise, there are usually lots of other gays, and, this is a good way of meeting them if you aren't traveling with a group. As always, we're able to help you with any cruise you want, not just gay groups or all gay cruises.


Your Cruising with Pride Cruises & Tours gay group cruise vacation
can offer all the luxuries of a cruise, with these added amenities:
Special functions: Depending on the cruise and size of the group, enjoy a variety of exclusive events with your fellow gay vacationers such as, private happy hour bar, private games, your own special gay host, etc... Contact us for details.
