Updated: Jan 15

Excited to be an official travel partner of Vacaya - a new LGBTQ Cruise experience. VACAYA is the first large-scale full-ship/resort LGBT+ vacation company for adults to launch in decades and they are the only company catering to the entirety of the LGBTQ community!


Join us on one of the following trips:


Iceland Cruise August 30 - September 6, 2020


Join the Vacaya crew for an intimate luxury sailing around Iceland aboard the explorer yacht Ponant's Le Jacques Cartier

Never before in the history of all-LGBT+ cruising has this level of accessible high-end luxury been offered. And certainly, never to such an exotic destination.

  • All meals featuring subtle and audacious flavours inspired by the Icelandic port of calls

  • Complimentary unlimited open bar throughout your cruise (premium alcohol at a surcharge)

  • Complimentary unlimited open mini-bar in your stateroom/suite (premium alcohol at a surcharge)
