Welcome aboard an all-gay cruise ship for a week of fun, friendship, flirtation and festivities. This fly on the wall doco introduces us to a varied array of characters; from a young buff Polish man who wants to be loved for more than his body, to a recently-out man from India, a wheelchair-bound Frenchman who knows how to party, and a happy-go-lucky but ultimately monogamous couple, along with so many more.
While long nights on deck are spent in revelry, with themed evenings bringing out the best in fancy costume and over-the-top outfits, the conversations in the cabins are anything but skin deep. Director Ferland Milewski gives us an intimate look as these men bond over identity, body image and the seemingly endless search for sex and relationships.
Full of laughs and genuine moments of bonding between the characters, Dream Boat combines flashy fun with a lot of heart.
