I booked this cruise around the middle of January 2010 for the sailing the week after Thanksgiving 2010. After the ship sailed, I was surprised and dismayed to find that approximately 2000 of the 2800 passengers were gays or lesbians. I support Celebrity's decision to book this large group, and I support their right to cruise. However my christian beliefs does not condone this lifestyle. There is not much that the passengers can do once the gangway has been raised. Most of these passengers were booked through the 'Pied Pipers Travel Agency'. We witnessed many lewd acts in public areas, and some acted as if we were invading their space. I heard someone say "what are these straight people doing here, this is a gay cruise". I heard that over 200 people left the ship at our first port of call (San Juan). We complained while on the ship, and by letters to Celebrity and Royal Caribbean after we returned to Fort Lauderdale. We asked for a refund of our fees , or a voucher for a future cruise. both requests were denied. We will not cruise with CCL or RCCL until our concerns are satisfied. I have sailed on 24 cruises with approximately half of them being on CCL or RCCL ships
