An Italian couple has filed a provocative lawsuit seeking damages from a cruise that took them from Italy to Spain. After setting sail, the couple found out that they were on the “Revuelta” (“Revolution”) cruise for gay couples. They insist that it was a breach of their agreement not to inform them of the “theme” of the cruise while others are charging that they are homophobic.
Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale,
a tale of a fateful trip.
That started from this tropic port,
aboard this tiny ship.
The mate was a mighty sailing man,
the skipper brave and sure.
The couple shelled out $4,500 for a cruise, which was Italy’s first all-gay cruise. There are even facebook sites for the cruise, here. They complain that the cruise had a series of “gay-themed” events and parties. However, Alessio De Giorgio, one of the organizers insisted “[t]his is a clear case of homophobia. Nothing scandalous happened. It’s a clear example of how prevalent homophobia is in this country.”
Here is a video from the cruise:
A breach of contract or an act of homophobia. What do you think?
