Two men arrested by Dominican authorities for having sex on a gay cruise could face a hefty fine or even six months’ jail.
The Atlantis Cruises ship they were on was docked in Dominica, in the Caribbean where sex between men in illegal.
Police boarded the ship and arrested the men on suspicion of indecent exposure and ‘buggery’, the AP reports.
The men were apparently seen having sex on the ship by someone at the dock.
The ship, which is carrying around 2,000 passengers, had to depart without the pair as they were held by police for a court appearance this morning.
Local media Dominican News Online are reporting that those around the port seem disturbed by the “immoral behaviour” of the ship’s passengers.
One hair braider said she was “mentally disturbed, first time I am seeing that in my life.”
