I’ve done a bit of traveling myself but never actually taken a cruise. Truth be told, it’s not exactly at the top of my list. Taking a two-hour ferry ride to visit my boyfriend’s parents is already taxing enough. I can’t even imagine a week on a boat. I’ll just live vicariously thorough the folks featured in this documentary.
Dream Boat follows five men from five countries on the quest for their dreams which includes being on a gay men only cruise far from their families and political restrictions. They share personal stories, their doubts and uncertainties while on a week-long voyage from Lisbon to the Canary Islands filled with over 2,000 passengers partying up a storm.
At first glance, Dream Boat looks like an ad for an all-male cruise vacay, but it goes deeper than that. Topics from body fascism to HIV, acceptance at home, to the search for love are all covered and then some. Check out the trailer below.
