An LGBT+ vacation is a great way to explore a new destination with the added comfort and safety of being around like-minded travelers. While your choice of destination will ultimately determine the types of clothing and items you should bring, a VACAYA trip has the added benefit of themed events which add a bit of spice and excitement to the experience. So, if you’re thinking about taking an LGBT+ vacation with VACAYA or you already have one booked, be sure to read these tips to guide you on making sure you pack everything you need so you’re fully prepared for your upcoming trip.
Pack Your Smile!
The most important to pack is your smile and willingness to say “Hi”. Passengers are eager to get to know you, but you have to put yourself out there and meet them halfway. Remember that many LGBT+ passengers come from places where they aren’t comfortable being out and proud, and they seek the comforts of community on the vacation. “Hi, how’s your trip going so far?” openers lead quickly into genuine conversations that can create lasting bonds, much more so than you may have experienced on regular cruises.
What to Wear
One of the best things about an all-LGBT+ vacation is that we create a safe environment where you can truly be yourself. Wear as little or as much as you want, experiment without judgement, and feel comfortable and confident. All we ask is that you keep your twigs, berries, and buns covered in dining areas and only go fully nude in areas designated as clothing optional.
