VACAYA is a fresh new approach to LGBT travel, one focused entirely on you! We charter entire ships and resorts, so LGBT+ travelers have the freedom to express their individuality, make personal connections, celebrate life, rev up, or simply relax… together. From Day 1, VACAYA set out to rewrite the LGBT+ vacation playbook and we’ve left no stone unturned.

EXPLORE THE DIFFERENCES THAT SET VACAYA APART…

1. WE'RE WELCOMING TO ALL

There’s no other large-scale travel company on earth welcoming the entire LGBTQIAPK community. We create a warm environment where ALL who believe love is love are welcome and we make it easy for everyone to leave their cares behind and focus on the fun! At VACAYA, guests of all shapes and sizes come together to celebrate the great diversity within our community. Traveling with VACAYA is all about being completely comfortable in your own skin, no matter where you fall on the LGBT+ spectrum. Whether you’re single, coupled, black, white, skinny, thick, or even straight, you’ll easily find a welcoming tribe. Add to that the safety that comes with being part of an undeniable majority while you’re with us and VACAYA becomes a blissful utopia.

2. WE OFFER NEW DESTINATIONS AND UNIQUE EXPERIENCES

We’re focusing on creating memorable travel experiences to fresh new destinations, with customized itineraries that haven’t been offered previously by other vacation companies. It all started with our Inaugural Cruise to Ptown in 2019 and continues with never-before-seen all-LGBT+ itineraries like Provincetown, New Orleans, Iceland, Costa Rica, Antarctica, and the Seychelle Islands.

3. WE BELIEVE IN BALANCE

We certainly love a great party and will produce some of the best parties at sea, but our focus won’t be on all-night ragers every night of your holiday. VACAYA is about discovering magical textures, tastes, smells, sites, and sounds of lands near and far… together. Sailing the seven seas or enjoying a resort that’s all ours is about the moments we spend connecting, laughing, and living life to the fullest. Its possibilities are endless and exciting, sensual, life-changing. These experiences open our minds, unify our rhythm, and bond us for life.

4. WE GIVE BACK

VACAYA’s commitment to giving back to the community is reflected in our mission to make a difference. To that end, there are two distinct ways we’ll make an impact both locally and globally. First, by partnering with local organizations, VACAYA’s ReachOUT program will offer guests an opportunity during their vacation to give back to the communities visited – either with a bit of sweat equity or financially. Second, VACAYA’s Cabins for Causes program will donate cruise rooms to worthy causes. And the best part? We’ll let you help pick those organizations.

6. WE FOCUS ON HEALTH & SAFETY FIRST

VACAYA is all about connections, having fun, and building community, but your health and safety are our highest priorities. While we fully expect our upcoming vacations to reflect the fact that people have been vaccinated, both VACAYA and our cruise and resort partners have proven we can discern and implement complex health & safety protocols. We’re always ready to adapt to any conditions we may face as a community. Our commitment is to follow all government safety and socialization protocols, ensuring all guests a chance to socially distance, but at the same time mix and mingle at one’s comfort level to find joy in travel again.

We’ve prepared a webpage with information guests may value as their vacation approaches. Stay up-to-date on all the latest news we have to share on our Travel Updates page.

7. WE DELIVER, AND OUR GUEST SCORES REFLECT THAT FACT

VACAYA is proud to have a Net Promoter Score® of 76! That is phenomenal considering it’s higher than companies like Louis Vuitton, Lexus, and Nike! Simply put, an NPS score starts by tracking customer feedback on a scale of 0 to 10. The actual score is calculated by subtracting the % of survey respondents who are detractors from the % of survey respondents who are promoters. A score of between 70-100 is considered EXCELLENT. Buying from a company with a high NPS Score increases the likelihood that you’ll also have an amazing experience. It’s as simple as that.
