The 6 Best Gay Cruise Lines

Looking to escape the autumnal rut? Not to worry, these gay-friendly cruise lines will help you see the world from a unique perspective.

It’s officially fall! And while most are trampling each other to get their favorite pumpkin flavored beverages and look for the nearest orchard, it might be time for one last hoorah before winter arrives. You might be thinking, “Where to start?”

Well, allow us to answer that.

1. RSVP Vacations

What better place to start than the self-proclaimed originator of “the gay and lesbian cruise concept?” RSVP has served more than 35,000 members of the LGBTQ community since they began. They will be celebrating their 35th anniversary in February and are pulling out all the stops with an exclusive cruise to the Caribbean. In addition to providing the “finest, gay-positive entertainment,” they’re known for a focus on shopping, kayaking and some after-hours fun (leather and underwear parties) and overall, fun.

2. Undersea Expeditions

An “alternative for gay and lesbian scuba divers,” Undersea Expeditions offers a unique perspective on the world, namely from the bottom of the sea, whether you’re a beginner or a pro.

From Cuba, to the Caribbean, Australia and Indonesia, there are plenty of options to choose from. Not to mention they even help you find the cheapest flights (at no additional cost). Don’t miss out on the upcoming Gay Turks & Caicos Liveaboard Vacation during Shark Week (October 12-19).

So what are you waiting for? The sea turtles are waiting for you!
