Italian hetero couple complaints

A cruise aboard in a sublime boat. It was the dream of an Italian couple, husband and wife, residing in Trevi, a town in Umbria. A dream come true when our two lovebirds win a contest. Alas, when they embarked for Barcelona Saturday, September 19, they realize they have fallen in the middle of “Revuelta”, the first gay and lesbian cruise organized by the Italian group

"Shut up in their cabins"

The couple, who have chosen the travel catalog, say not having seen nothing and nobody warned them. Because of this "surprise", they sought compensation of 3,000 euros in damages to the shipping company Grimaldi, guilty, according to them, having failed in its catalog, "the special LGBT cruise”.

"When they arrived at the port, my clients have insight into the media surrounding the boat, said Antonio Francesconi, the lawyer handling the case. They initially thought that a prominent person was on board. But in fact they were covering the event: 1 500 passengers on this cruise were gay! "

"My clients have experienced a sense of embarrassment because of the atmosphere and rather daring performances held on the ship and they spent their holidays locked in their cabins," he added, assuring that "it is not a question of discrimination, but an unfortunate misunderstanding that we must compensate.

"Homophobia in Italian society"

The couple's sulking in any case did not vitiate the atmosphere of the cruise, as a result of its success, a new “Revuelta” was announced in 2010.
