Couple says cruise went overboard, seeks legal life preserver

by Jeremy Hooper

Remember all those Kathie Lee Carnival cruise line commercials from the '80s/'90s, in which KLG and her fellow sailors were simply beaming at the on-desk aerobics classes, water slides, parfaits, and general gaiety that filled their vacationing days? Yea, well -- there's one Italian couple who won't be appearing in any of their cruise line's national ad campaigns anytime soon:

An Italian couple are suing a shipping line for £2,800 after claiming they were not told a relaxing holiday they had booked was in fact on board a ship hosting Italy's first gay cruise.

The middle-aged husband and wife, who have not been named, said they were embarrassed after spotting people they knew, but had not realised were gay, on the cruise.

Suing over too much on-deck 'moness? Well that's kind of funny, considering that gay people have been sailing on boats filled with a majority of heteros since the days of the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria. Where's our settlement?!

We'll have to wait and see if this couple will get anything out of this. Other than a better travel agent, that is.

**Oh and yes, this was the exact premise of a fairly terrible movie:

Your thoughts

One would think that the (presumably otherwise "randy" old farts), would have found the gay cruise to be much more "relaxing" simply by virtue of the fact that none of the other passengers would have been up for any "opposite sex" hanky panky. Because, it appears that the real problem they are having is that there was no sex-hookup potential while aboard. If the swingers really want extramarital hookups, they should search out those "singles" cruises, where they would (presumably) have much more fun.
