We got "married" on the Wonder this past May and had a phenomenal experience! We could not have felt more special that day as well as each day, for that matter.

Have any of you been uncomfortable or had any trouble in Nassau, Bahamas?

The image in my head of Nassau is from the documentary on Rosie O'Donnell's r family cruises of protestors meeting the ship in port. While I know DCL is not a "gay cruise" as the r family ones are and therefore unlikely to draw protestors, it still leaves a bad taste in my mouth for the place. And then there is this: http://revelandriot.com/news/un-vote...from-execution - So the Bahamas is on my list of countries NOT to visit.

However, I'd love to go to Castaway Cay! I guess I could just not get off the ship in Nassau (on the hypothetical Disney cruise I plan to take someday) but am curious to hear others' experiences & opinions.

all I can say is beer hurts when it comes out of your nose!
I don't think we hijacked Halloween, we just do a better job at it!

Never had any problems myself...... but I can see it happening.

Personally, I never get off the ship in Nassau....absolutly nothing I need or want there! Let the other guests get off the ship, and enjoy the ship while it's slow! Disney built Castaway Cay for you to enjoy!

My husband and I are taking our first DCL on the Dream end of February. I suspected that the staff are way cool with gay guest, to hear from other cruisers that is all cool is great to hear.

Can't wait!

We have gotten off the ship in Nassau...not had any problems because we're gay...just didn't like the whole experience. The haggling in the straw market is not for us. We went and saw the Atlantis resort - nice, but no need to go back...so when we're in Nassau, we enjoy the solitude of the ship while everyone else is off doing their thing.
