Macabre Travel: Goth Cruise for Thanksgiving...

Embarking this week over Thanksgiving, is what sounds to the Courtesan, like one of the biggest oxymorons of dark culture. Goth Cruise, sailing through the sunny, happy seas of the Mediterranean carries a bunch of dark lords and black-clad divas through the waters. A subject of a an IFC documentary, the Goth Cruise has characters like "Resident Evil" as perhaps a replacement for "Julie" or other perky cruise director. Sunscreen-devoid shipmates adorn corseted, high-heeled or other cruise-appropriate outfits to stroll through the casino or midnight buffets. Be careful not to catch your lace sleeve on the railings little buddy! For more information, see their website.
