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

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.

between Luxor and Aswan, on an elegant, privately-chartered paddle

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.
