Gay and lesbian cruise will visit Island ports this fall

Advertiser Staff

The company that created the gay and lesbian cruise concept is commemorating its 25th birthday with a Silver Anniversary Cruise in Hawai'i.

RSVP Vacation yesterday said it will be the company's first cruise in the Islands.

The seven-day cruise aboard NCL's Pride of America departs Honolulu Oct. 30. It makes calls at Maui, Kaua'i and the Big Island before returning to Honolulu Nov. 6.

Hawai'i Tourism Authority's vice president of marketing, David Uchiyama, said Hawai'i is honored that RSVP selected the state for its Silver Anniversary Cruise.

The Minneapolis-based company hosted its first all-gay cruise in 1986. Since then, RSVP says more than 80,000 men and women have participated in its ship and riverboat cruises, land tours and resort vacations.
