How does a person get to join this group of HIV+ men/women on a cruise, I have been poz for over 26 yrs now and would like to socialize with others. A cruise would be just the thing to do the trick. Right now I am dealing with dialysis with hopes to getting a kidney transplant, but I am still alive and want to enjoy my life.

This cruise sounds like a lot of fun, and the price is certainly affordable. My question for those who have gone is; are there a significant number of younger (under 35 or so) people that go? Most of the poz friends I have are in their 40s or 50s and it would be nice just to meet some people around my age (25). Thanks.

Thank you, Mark for the great article! I was on the cruise you see in the video (and in the video if you look really hard! LoL!) Being a "Poz" from a small town in central IL, as you can imagine, can be difficult for me to find people who share my experience. The "Poz Cruise" has changed my life. No kidding. I have made some lifelong friends and know people who met their Life Partner on-board. Nothing could be better than Sun, Sand and Sea to bring people together and share our stories and our lives. Again, thanks to Mark King for the article and to Paul Stalbaum of Cruise Designs Inc. for helping to make my lifepath a better road. Michael M.

Sounds like it was a blast. Have you ever considered doing a cruise for heterosexuals as well. I dont knock any one on their preference but myself I am straight so I would like to able to be among straight men as well. Just curious.

thanks for this story, mark. i grew up in ft lauderdale and have always wondered whether these cruises were worth the investment of time and money or not. i guess you've answered my question. is the 2013 cruise sold out?
