2 US men arrested on gay cruise in Caribbean
Two California men on a gay cruise of the Caribbean were arrested Wednesday in Dominica, where sex between two men is illegal.
Police Constable John George said police boarded the cruise ship and arrested the two men on suspicion of indecent exposure and "buggery," a term equivalent to sodomy on the island. He identified the men as John Robert Hart, 41, and Dennis Jay Mayer, 43, but did not provide their hometowns.
George said the men were seen having sex on the Celebrity Summit cruise ship by someone on the dock.
The two were later charged with indecent exposure and are scheduled to appear before a magistrate Thursday morning. If found guilty, they could be fined $370 each and face up to six months in jail.

1. Why would a cruise line
that had gay cruises go to an island where gay sex is illegal? Someone didn't think that through when planning the cruise itinerary.Star Member Ian David (65,112 posts) Profile Journal Send DU Mail Ignore
3. Why does a gay cruise organizer send cruises to islands where gays are not welcome?

Doesn't he think he would have more customers-- HAPPIER customers-- if they went to islands where they won't board your ship to arrest your clients for buggery?
There is no shortage of islands that are willing to happily take your money.According to these DUers the cruise line should have known that gay man can't control themselves and so they need to avoid places where homosexual behavior is outlawed. It's the cruise lines fault that they were arrested, dontcha know?Moonwalk (606 posts) Profile Journal Send DU Mail Ignore
4. If the cruise line doesn't pay off the constable and judge and get these charges dropped...
...not only should these men sue, but the LGBT community should boycott the whole cruise line.
