London, March 23 (IANS) Two US men have pleaded guilty to indecent exposure in Dominica after they were arrested during a stop on a gay cruise of the Caribbean.
John Robert Hart, 41, and Dennis Jay Mayer, 43, of Palm Springs, Thursday apologized in court and said they regretted their actions, Daily Mail reported.
Police said they were seen having sex in plain sight of people on land, prompting officers to board the ship and arrest them Wednesday.
The two initially were arrested on suspicion of the local equivalent of sodomy in the eastern Caribbean island, which prohibits sex between two men.
Gay Caribbean cruises have been popular for several years despite hostility to homosexuality on certain islands, especially in Jamaica, Barbados and the Cayman Islands.
The cruise was organised by Atlantis Events, a Southern California company that specializes in gay travel.
