Carnival Cruise Ru Paul Charter says Guests CAN NOT Come in Drag

DRAGS QUEENS AND TRANSGENDERS are SREAMING MAD about the upcoming Carnival Cruise featuring Ru Pauls Drag Racers. 

On December 2, the Carnival Glory will depart from the Port of Miami carrying about two dozen drag queens from Logo’s RuPaul’s Drag Race (including local favorite Latrice Royale),
but Carnival Cruises has managed to spark a bit of controversy a week
before the ship even sails by banning drag costumes. Yes, they’ve banned
drag costumes from a drag queen-themed cruise.

Carnival Cruises is in hot water for reportedly telling passengers that drag would been banned on an upcoming drag cruise.
An email was sent to ticket holders on Carnivial’s “Drag Stars at Sea”
cruise, telling them that they wouldn’t be able to put on a wig and
heels and kiki aboard the U.S.S. Glory. Only the professionals from RuPaul’s Drag Race could. Y’see, there were other people on the boat—including children—so everyone would have to keep their pants on.

When asked, Carnival management acknowledged that gender illusion was verboten among passengers on the December 2 cruise, but said it wasn’t discrimination. It was part of their standard policy as a result of the war on terrorism.


ALLEGEDLY,    Carnival’s “no costumes rule” is NOT meant to be an insult to the gay community. As a gay business, we would not have organized this cruise if they were prejudiced against gay people. This rule goes for both GAY and STRAIGHT passengers that travel on all Carnival cruises. It is in response to the post-911 world we live in. It is meant to protect passengers and guests – NOT to marginalize a few.

I get the NO MASK thing. That makes sense. So what if a transgender  comes on board, in their desired clothing of choice and/or makeup, and their ID does not match their exterior, would they be ejected from  the boat. 

Many people are demanding a full refund. 

Come on Carnival. GET REAL!
