A cruise is not complete without theme nights. Well, a gay cruise means theme night EVERY night!
The tamest one that I can show you in photos was the “military gear” night. All onboard were expected to come as police, army, navy, name a uniform and they wore it that night!
Since its still quite fashionable, most everyone came in camouflage. But this was interpreted in so many delightful and naughty ways.
There were see-through jumpsuits, jockstraps that left little to the imagination, long johns unbuttoned at the back to reveal half a tight butt, leggings in fluorescent camouflage prints, all sorts of nets that caught our eyes for what they revealed underneath!
There were some leather freaks as expected, looking like mean Nazi officers but when they started talking, you could only hear endearing words like “Honeybunch”, Dahhhhling”, “Awww Gurl” that was so typically American. All decked out in latex were policemen straight out of a “Tom of Finland” catalogue with studded hats and gloves.
Everybody was starstruck when the iconic live Ken (of Barbie) doll came out with puckered Kardashian lips and matching buttocks, chest pumped up with silicone and a liposuctioned waistline that solicited wolf-whistles rivaling the ship’s horn blasts announcing dinner was ready and everyone retreated to their cabins to change for the restaurants.
With all the heavy male paraphernalia trotted out for the event, nothing sinister came out of it because these cruisers were just out to have fun! And did we have lots and lots of it!
