Daddy Cruise®

Helping Guys of All Ages Enjoy Vacations—Together!








About You

You're Welcome Here!

You're probably not the 20-year-old with the ripped body that you see pictured on other gay cruise sites. You're more of an average guy, who's wondering if taking a cruise would be a good way to spend his vacation. Maybe you've been on other ships—or maybe it's your first time. You know what you don't want: a floating bathhouse, a large cruise ship with nothing but gay men, and to feel lost or left out—especially if you're not that outgoing.

You've Come to the Right Place

Here's why:

You get to travel with a bunch of friends

We gather an active, energetic group of 20-to-100+ people: all ages and races, including Daddys, boys, and others. Bring your family and friends—gay or straight—and meet other good guys.

You get to make a difference

Each cruise includes an optional day of service to a local group in need, such as participating in a food drive for a local LGBTQ center. You can have a transformative experience—as well as an enjoyable vacation!

You'll See It the First Time We Talk

Card image

That's right: you speak with one of us—not someone in a call center who can't wait to get you off the phone! We'll take all the time you need to get your questions answered, so you can make a good decision.

You get to know people even before the ship leaves

There's a private Facebook page so you can meet others in advance. We'll also gather for pre-cruise virtual events, where you'll discover more about the excursions you may take, get your questions answered, and start interacting with your new friends.

You get your own personal host

We personally host your vacation! We're there to look out for you, make sure you have a good time, and feel included throughout the trip. We organize and lead lots of ways for you to get to know your fellow passengers. There's a meet-and-greet activity on the first day, dinner at our own tables throughout the cruise, and private excursions exclusive for our group. We'll also respect your need to have time alone.

You'll Love the Value

We don't take over an entire ship for an all-gay cruise and make you pay a premium price. Instead, we create our community on a regularly-scheduled cruise, which also gives you the choice of meeting a diverse group of travelers. In addition, we reserve cabins years in advance so we can still offer reasonable rates—even when prices go up later.

Singles

You Can Be Solo Without Being Alone!



Our cruises aren't just for couples: we have lots of singles! Don't worry about sitting next to an empty chair at dinner. Or paying full fare for a double-occupancy cabin. Explore all the ways you'll feel welcome in our group, including our Roommate Match Program.


Why Singles Love Our Cruises

We care that you have a good time! That’s why you'll never feel awkward as a solo traveler.


Three Ways We Serve Financially Savvy Solo Cruisers

With most cruises designed for "double-occupancy," this can seem an unnecessarily pricey way for a single to travel. Not so with us!

The first way we combat this is with our First Fares Strategy. We buy blocks of rooms when the sailing is first announced and fares are at their lowest. That way, you're guaranteed accommodations at prices that are significantly lower than the going rates later.

The second way is through our Roommate Match Program—which also adds a dash of fun!

The third way is our annual Gay Singles Cruise. Every year, we find a fantastic cruise and negotiate super-low, single-occupancy fares for full-size cabins. Onboard, we host all sorts of fun activities designed to help you connect with others in the group. Click here for information about our upcoming gay singles cruise.


We'll Take Care of You

There's only one way you'll know if cruising with us is right for you: contact Brian at 614-799-1390 or bmiller@cruiseplanners.com.


"Every day I talk with singles, or couples who want to invite a single friend—gay or straight—to join them," Brian says. "My goal is for you to feel confident that this is the right place for you, and get the fun started!"

Impact

Make an Impact While You Cruise

Enjoying a Day of Giving Back


Sometimes you want more than just a vacation: you want a fulfilling experience. That's why we include one optional "day of service" on our journeys.

  • Maybe it's delivering mattresses to hurricane survivors in Belize
  • Or having a shipboard quilting bee to create "tie together" (no-sewing) blankets for homeless teens in Baltimore
  • Or packing comfort bags with needed toiletries for poor members of the LBGTQ community in Long Beach.

You take a day to make a difference for people who need care and hope—and are so grateful to receive it. Guys tell us this often is the highlight of their trip! Getting to see the "real people and culture" beyond the glitz of a port. Forming stronger bonds by working with—and enjoying—your cruise-mates on a deeper level.

This is offered as a choice, like any other excursion. There's no judgment if you do something else that day. Some guys prefer to make an online donation to the cause, which also is important, and we make it easy.


Ask us about the day of service planned for your vacation. If you join us, you may come back feeling lucky and transformed!

Read what those have sailed with Daddy have to say about us

Chino

"This was my first cruise, but I had no concerns. I felt comfortable with the gay men in Brian's group, and all the straight people were super nice."


Dickey

"I liked doing cruises alone—until now. I can't wait to meet the group on Brian's next cruise."



Don & Michael

"Brian made both of us feel comfortable, from the first time we spoke. And all through the cruise, he treated us like friends and family—not just a number."


Jorge

"This was my first gay cruise. I've already signed up for my next one. Why go by yourself when you can meet a group of new friends and have a great time?"



Josh

"Go with an open mind. It doesn't matter when you were born. You can still find the joy and excitement of a gay cruise."


Mark & Joel

"Don't be afraid that you won't connect or fit in. You'll find others you like on your own—or Brian will help you meet them."

A Final Word

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts.
Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.”
