Multiple Tours and Cruise Dates
We bring women together…on vacation!
Whether you want to enjoy the relaxed vibe of an all-inclusive resort, sail the seven seas on a cruise with hundreds of lesbians, or immerse yourself in the culture of a new destination, we have a vacation that’s sure to fit your style. The Olivia Experience is about women having fun together, making friends – and maybe even finding that special someone. With our world-class, just-for-you, entertainment; fabulous singles activities; incredible touring excursions; or even a touching commitment ceremony, you can be sure you’ll have a vacation experience you’ll never forget.
Each Olivia trip has its own special flavor:
The Olivia Cruise Experience:
We charter the entire ship, so it’s all women, all the time. On board, there are concerts and comedy shows, dancing, casino games, singles’ activities, and so much more! Relax by the pool or plan a shore excursion. Cruising is an amazing way to travel – your meals and accommodations are included. Unpack once and see the world!
The Olivia Resort Experience:
Welcome to all-inclusive fun, olivia-style, where we always buy out the entire resort! At our resorts you can enjoy comfortable accommodations just steps away from the beach, sun and sand. Alcohol, soft drinks, gourmet food and a wide array of activities are included, of course. Add unparalleled Olivia entertainment – and WOW – you’ve got an unforgettable vacation experience.
Riverboat cruising is Hot! Hot! Hot! It is also the very best way to truly immerse yourself into the heart of a destination. On a river cruise, you’ll experience everything up close and personal. Olivia chooses the best riverboats and customizes each itinerary. You’ll unpack just once and your fare covers most everything. Enjoy an included daily tour, all meals, and wine and soft drinks with dinner. Add to this, Olivia’s signature programming and nightly entertainment – and you’ve got an exciting, new vacation option to consider.
Dreaming of an adventure that will take you off the beaten path? Eager to learn more about the world around you? Want to experience an African Safari in depth? Or snap photos of unique wildlife on an eco-tour adventure to the Galápagos Islands? Olivia’s more intimate Adventures are the ultimate escape! These trips include all meals, excursions and expert guides to educate you about the places you visit. Each year we offer a new and exciting calendar of unforgettable destinations and experiences from which to choose.
Travel solo with Olivia!
With hundreds of solos on each of our cruise and resort vacations, you have endless opportunities to make new friends – and maybe even meet that special someone. Our Solos Program, staffed by our very own Olivia Solos Coordinators, offers a wide array of activities – from dances and mixers to sunset cruises and pool games—allowing you to meet and mingle throughout your trip. There’s special solos seating at meals and shows. Plus, Olivia will arrange a room-share for you, making your vacation even more affordable! And, you don’t have to be single to participate in our program; whether you are single or just traveling solo, there’s something for everyone.

THE FINE PRINT
Olivia has been serving the lesbian community since 1973, both as a groundbreaking independent women’s record label and as THE travel company for lesbians.
Founded by Judy Dlugacz and nine of her friends, Olivia Records produced some 40 albums and sold more than one million records, tapes and CDs by artists such as Christian and Williamson, Teresa Trull and Linda Tillery.
Since 1990, when the company shifted its focus toward travel, Olivia has taken almost 200,000 women on cruise, resort, adventure and riverboat vacations all over the world, including Antarctica. We always charter entire ships or buy out whole resorts to provide a safe space for women to be out and feel free. Women of every ethnicity, nationality, age, ability, relationship status and profession travel with us for an extraordinarily unique experience – to have an all-woman, all-lesbian vacation.
We also tailor specific programs to different types of travelers. Single travelers meet up at onboard mixers, dances and port excursions, where solos coordinators are there to facilitate friendships for those who are a little shy. For women of color, the Sisters at Sea (on cruises) and Sisters at Play (at resorts) programs bring women together to mingle and participate in special activities. Sisters’ coordinators organize casual meet-and-greets, film screenings and entertainment that celebrates diversity.
We always bring you the best in lesbian entertainment! Our big-ship cruises to the Caribbean, Mexico and Alaska have featured artists such as Olivia Newton-John, Patti LaBelle, Melissa Etheridge and Indigo Girls, comedians Wanda Sykes, Lily Tomlin and Whoopi Goldberg, world-class athletes Billie Jean King and Martina Navratilova, influential voices such as Dr. Maya Angelou and Edie Windsor, and even financial expert, Suze Orman. Our trips also feature entertainers such as Vickie Shaw, Karen Williams, Gina Yashere, Elvira Kurt, Dana Goldberg, Roxanna War, Lisa Koch and Julie Goldman, as well incredible DJs such as DJ Rockaway, DJ Asha, DJ Lisa Pittman and DJ Citizen Jane.
Whether it’s an intimate riverboat cruise from Switzerland to Amsterdam, an African Safari adventure, an all-inclusive resort vacation in Puerto Vallarta, or a cruise with 1,900 lesbians to Australia and New Zealand, you are sure to find an Olivia vacation that’s perfect for you.
