S.B. The O sailing was a full ship charter. The cruise could not even be purchased from anyone but the operator (RSVP in this case). There were no passengers on board the ship that were not fully aware of the passenger make up. The poster that was offended was sailing on a different HAL ship. I don't think the Veendam captain was hiding anything by not telling his passengers that another HAL ship was hauling gay boys around the carribean.
