2014 DNR Show Listener Cruise

You've heard us talking about it and maybe you are thinking of coming along, but you aren't quite sure. Well, let me take a moment to spell it all out for you.

On March 15, 2014, Derek and Romaine and a bunch of listeners will set sail on the Caribbean Princess for a week of fun on the high seas and we want you to come along. This is our second DNR Cruise and we had such a good time, we couldn't wait to do it again. This time, we are sailing out of Houston and visiting the Western Caribbean. Prices start at just $749 per person!

Don't worry. Derek and Romaine are not the Captains.
We are not charging a premium to sail with us. The price you see on the Princess website is the price you will pay to join us. To help us organize our group (and make sure that everyone in our group is counted as part of it), we ask that you book your travel through The Cruise Boys. This will ensure you are invited to all DNR events on the ship, dinner seatings and more. If you are an existing Princess cruiser, be sure to let them know when booking. They will arrange everything for you, including giving you an itinerary of events and activities with Derek and Romaine and the other listeners.

This is a group sailing on a larger ship, so we are not taking over the whole ship. If the thought of an all-gay cruise scares you, or you are straight and love the show but aren't sure this is for you, don't worry. Everyone is welcome in our friendly group. As you will see from the comments and photos in the DNR Cruises group on Facebook, the listeners who joined us the first time out became very close and built friendships that will last a lifetime. Like summer camp, but with booze. 

Some of the first brave pioneers on our inaugural cruise in 2013. 
Even though there will be something every single day with Derek and/or Romaine, we encourage you to make the cruise your own. You can book excursions, explore the activities on the ship, and have an adventure all your own. We invite you to look over the amenities of the ship and the ports of call and find the parts of the ship and voyage that interest you. For instance, Romaine loves the casino! And karaoke. But mostly the casino.

Romaine's muster station was the casino. So convenient!
If you have any questions about the cruise, feel free to ask Robert at The Cruise Boys and he can answer whatever logistical questions you have. If you want to know more about what it is like to sail with Derek and Romaine, ask any of the listeners in the DNR Cruises group on Facebook. They will give you the full scoop. If you are a single traveler and are looking for a cabin mate, you can find one in the Facebook group as well.

But most of all, we think that if you have enjoyed laughing along with Derek and Romaine in your car, you will have just as good a time out on the ocean with them. And you'll meet other LGBT and yes straight people just like you who love the show and share your sense of humor and outlook. And all in a relaxed and casual environment. Isn't it time you got away? Join us on the 2014 DNR Cruise! Book today!

That sunset could be yours! Join us in 2014!

One Month In!!

Hey guys and gals! It's Michelle the intern writing to y'all! So it’s been about a month since I've been interning with the Derek and Romaine show and I absolutely love it! Throughout this month I've learned so much! Being a part of this show has opened up a whole new world for me! I've gotten to learn all the work it takes to produce a show and I've gotten to meet some awesome guests! One of the things I love about this show is that almost everyday there is a guest! It keeps the show entertaining and it's always nice to see a new face in the studio.

There have been so many guests in this past month that I've enjoyed each and everyone of them. I would have to say my top favorite guests would be, Miss Tiger, Alec Mapa and Scott Thorson, trust me there’s many more but these were the first few that I could remember!

Miss Tiger has to be one of the funniest bitches I have ever met! I've met Miss Tiger in the studio a few times and it’s been one the funniest times! When Miss Tiger is in the studio it’s always a good time!

Alec Mapa I sadly haven’t met in person but we did have him on the show via phone. He was also one of the funniest guest in my opinion! The entire interview was so funny, not to mention he was calling us from Disney Land!

Scott Thorson, well enough said! When I found out we were having him on the show with us, I almost couldn’t believe it! It was interesting to hear what he had to say about his experiences and his opinion on the movie: Behind the Candelabra.

One of the best days here was last week; we went on a field trip to the museum of sex! It was my first time actually going to this museum but I was super excited to go. We got invited to Fun Factory’s event promoting their new product the Stronic. It was a lot of fun to see their new products and we also got to explore the museum!


It's crazy to think that it's already been a month here with the gang at Derek and Romaine. I must say, there's not one day I don't want to come here. Everyday is another adventure here. I keep learning new things and meeting new people and it's a time that I'm cherishing. Although I still have two months left here at the Derek and Romaine show, the days are going by so quick I feel like before a blink of an eye it’s going to be over and my days won’t be filled with Sexpert questions and Derek’s laugh.

Well I’ll keep everyone updated with how the rest of my summer here at the Derek and Romaine show goes!

Peace and Love
Michelle =)

Tips for the 4th of July

Hey bitches, did you catch Wade Williams on the show. Here are his 4th of July tips:

1) Make anything you can the night before! So you won't have to slave away in the kitchen the day of the party.

2) Get decor items that you can use again. Instead of buying flower arrangements, go to your local nursey and get small potted plants. This way you can use them for your party and plant them in your garden later.

3)If you w...ant to add a special touch to your Summer Party. Make a specialty cocktail, which you can serve in a large jug or pitchers. Prepare several batched the night before. Fresh juices are abundant! Go for a unique flavor like (watermelon, strawberry or lime). Now you won't need a bartender!

4) Why should you make everything? Decrease your stress level by having each guest prepare their favorite dish. But no Ambrosia Salads...Please!! Specify that the dish contain no (Creams or Mayonnaise). You don't want to give your guest food poisoning.

It's been one month already....can you believe it!?!?!?

Hey Bitches!!!!

It's me again...just wanted to touch base with you all. This week makes one month since I've been interning on the DNR show, can you believe it?!?!?!? The time just flew by. I've had so much fun working on the show and I've learned so much at the same time. Don't you just love when something can be fun and informative all at the same time, it's like meeting a guy that's both cute and smart. Makes you feel like you won the jackpot...kinda.

So here are a few highlights that have taken place since I last spoke to you guys----> I received a vibrator duckie, I met Dennis Hoff and Brooke Taylor from HBO's Cathouse (love watching this show in the wee hours of the morning, you can learn so much from prostitutes), Scott Thorson, Sandra Bernhard, a few porn stars and I even went on a field trip with the DNR team to the Museum of Sex where we all recieved free dildos! Not too shabby if you ask Then there are the DNR regulars like Miss Tiger and Hedda Lettuce, who I love. Whenver we have them on the show, these two queens usually have me laughing from beginning to end of the segment.

But aside from all the craziness, I've learned a lot about what it takes to put a show like DNR together.  I also have to hand it to Derek and Romaine for what they do because I'm sure it isn't easy to host a show every week for three hours a day and be entertaining all the way through but they make it look effortless. I just want to continue to soak up as much information as I can from the DNR team and have a good time in the process. Anways, I got to go now. I'll check in with you bitches later!  :)
