Vacation and holiday news for gay men and lesbians 

Sun! Water! Speedos!

Sometimes all you want for your holiday is to relax on the sand, or sit on the deck of a cruise ship while someone else makes all the plans. Or you may want something more active -- diving or snorkeling, for example -- as long as it's in the sun. Here are ideas from gay and lesbian companies.

Dive into another world 
Enjoy the sun and water while exploring an underwater world of purple sponges, sea turtles, and fish of every color. Both experienced divers, and those eager to learn, can enjoy this week in the Caribbean.

Take a Cruise
Travel to new spots without packing your bags: Your hotel travels with you when you're on a cruise ship. The first company to offer large-scale, all-gay cruises, RSVP also offers resort vacations and air-plus-hotel packages for independent travelers.

Float down the Nile 
Hanns Ebensten was the first man ever to offer explicitly gay travel opportunities. Twenty-five years later, his company is still going strong, specializing in historical, cultural and in-depth explorations of far-away places. Among the most popular: A cruise along the Nile, between Luxor and Aswan, on an elegant, privately-chartered paddle steamer.

For Women Only
The above companies invite both gay men and lesbians to join them, but typically draw more men. (But ask about mixed departures if you're interested; often they'll be able to suggest something.) Olivia has become the leader in offering all-women cruises and resort holidays.
