Curacao And Puerto Rico Profiting From Homophobic Caribbean

March 12th 2009, Curacao.

WILLEMSTAD-The cruise vessel Celebrity Solstice is currently visiting the island of Curacao. On
board the luxury cruise ship are 2,700 homosexual men and women. The Curacao Tourism Board is
very enthusiastic with the visit of the cruise ship. Gays and Lesbians are known to spend a lot of
money on luxury accommodations, restaurants, shopping, tours and bars.

The Gay Travel market represents an estimated US$712 billion in travel expenses, and is not
affected much by the current global economic crisis. Curacao and Puerto Rico are the only
destinations in the Caribbean who are actively targeting the gay market.

In Curacao there are 18 organizations who are member of the international Gay & Lesbian Travel
Association. The organizations include hotels, apartments, tour and diver operators. Curacao Gay
Plaza will organize a big party for the passengers on board the cruise vessel.

The cruise ship arrived in Curacao from Casa de Campo in The Dominican Republic this morning.
The vessel will remain in Curacao until 11:00pm and will then depart for the homeport Fort
Lauderdale, Florida.
