U.S. men on gay Atlantis cruise in Caribbean arrested for indecent exposure, 'buggery'


SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- Two California men on a gay cruise of the Caribbean were arrested Wednesday in Dominica, where sex between two men is illegal.

Police Constable John George said the men, ages 41 and 43, were arrested on suspicion of indecent exposure and "buggery," a term equivalent to sodomy on the island. They have not been charged.

The men were seen having sex on the Celebrity Summit cruise ship by someone on the dock, George said.

The ship carrying about 2,000 passengers departed Puerto Rico on Saturday and arrived in Dominica on Wednesday.

The cruise was organized by Atlantis Events, a Southern California company that specializes in gay travel.

President Rich Campbell, who is aboard the cruise, said in a phone interview that the two men were still being questioned as of Wednesday afternoon.

"We're waiting to see what happens," he said. "They're due to arrive back fairly soon."

The cruise ship is expected to depart Dominica late Wednesday en route to St. Barts.
