ARE ALL YOURS

A Once-in-a-Lifetime All-LGBT+ Luxury Polynesian Adventure!

It’s been well over a decade since any LGBT+ travel company has sailed the Hawaiian Islands as a full-ship charter. So of course VACAYA just has to go there, but we’re doing it with a MASSIVE TWIST! Not only can you experience the undeniable beauty of Hawaii, but you’ll also sail the Pacific to French Polynesia, as well! Oahu, Kauai, and the Big Island are all yours, but it’s the 3 days and 2 nights we’ll spend in BORA BORA that will truly be unforgettable.

Travel experts have debated “the most beautiful place on earth” for decades, but there’s only one spot that consistently ranks at or near the top of everyone’s list… Bora Bora. Words fail to truly describe this magical mystical place. Her lagoon is a place of endless wonders – nearly colorless in places and crystal clear throughout. This underwater world will excite you in all-new ways. Hand feed black-tip reef sharks? Possible. Book an overwater bungalow to melt into the beauty? Possible. Snorkel and dive till your heart’s content? Guaranteed.

15 Luxurious Nights. 2 Extraordinary Pacific Destinations. A journey of a lifetime.

Home to the world’s most active volcanoes, the only royal palace in the U.S., and the welcoming aloha spirit, Hawaii is like no place on earth. Discover its glimmering ocean, emerald valleys, and golden sands as you get lost in the spiritual beauty of the hula and find out how the warmth of Hawaii’s people wonderfully complement the islands’ perfect temperatures. Then, follow the path of the Polynesians as we sail southward to the most beautiful islands in the world. You’ll join an exclusive club of sailors who’ve crossed the equator as we make our way to Bora Bora, Taha’a, Moorea, and finally Tahiti. 3 FULL DAYS and 2 OVERNIGHTS await you in Bora Bora. This is a trip for the ages – an all-new way to enjoy the very best of the Pacific. #OnlyWithVACAYA

We recognize this adventure will be expensive for most, but we’ve layered in quite a few inclusions that will hopefully make it irresistible to global adventurers. Obviously it’s difficult for us to put a true value on this experience, but savvy travelers recognize “value” rarely means “low price.” Instead, value is defined as getting something extraordinary for a great price.

  • Luxury accommodations for 15 Nights
  • All meals onboard
  • Standard Alcoholic and Non-Alcoholic Beverages (top-shelf brands at additional cost)

THE SUPER YACHT ADVANTAGE

If you’ve ever wanted to explore the world in style in a friendly and intimate setting, VACAYA Luxe’s small-ship voyages have distinct advantages over their big-ship counterparts. Small ships gracefully dock in quaint harbors that bulkier oceangoing vessels simply can’t access, while also calling on classic destinations our guests long to visit again and again. The ability to call in ports of all sizes allows for more intriguing itineraries that become the focal point of the journey. Small ships also tend to stay longer and dock closer to town, giving you more time to explore. There are no crowds to beat, so you can see places at their most pleasant and authentic.

Sustainable Tourism

As concerns about environmental sustainability have become more prominent in the collective conscious, a greater emphasis has been placed on responsible travel practices. As lovers of the sea and the wondrous treasures of our planet, VACAYA and PONANT are committed to the protection of the environment and respecting indigenous communities. Larger cruise ships with guests numbering in the thousands can easily overwhelm popular ports with smaller populations. Small ships place less of a burden on the ports of call and do a much better job of meeting environmental regulations. PONANT has incorporated many environmental practices into their business model, whether it’s sustainable dining practices, partnering with local communities, partnering with international NGOs, supporting local research, or building ships with new technologies that reduce their environmental impact. PONANT’s strong sustainability policies have earned it many prestigious awards, including the Magellan Award for Eco-Friendly “Green” Cruise Ship.

Combined with the French Touch of PONANT

As the only French cruise company, PONANT is an ambassador of the “French Touch” around the world. With French crew, discrete service, refined cuisine, and partners that embody the same spirit of excellence and refinement, PONANT does their utmost to maintain a unique cruising philosophy.

FRENCH CREW. Included.

The French Touch means, above all, a French crew to welcome you and ensure your comfort and well-being throughout your cruise. In an atmosphere of elegant luxury, you’ll find 5-Star Service onboard. It’s a unique travel experience that’s simultaneously authentic and refined.

A FRENCH WAY OF LIVING

A FRENCH WAY OF LIVING. Included.

The French Touch also means a way of living in which gastronomy takes pride of place. Every day you’ll discover fragrant flavors, carefully selected cheeses and wines, and delicious specialty breads & pastries from Maison LenôtreMaison Taillevent provides its fine selection of vintage wines by the glass, Maison Veuve Clicquot champagne is served at our gala cocktails, and delicious sweets from Ladurée bakery are on offer during afternoon teatime.

PRESTIGIOUS PARTNERS

PRESTIGIOUS PARTNERS. Included.

Finally, the French Touch is also evident in PONANT’s choice of partners whose expertise and passion for their work is in line with VACAYA’s quest for excellence: interior design by Jean Philippe Nuel, fabrics by Pierre Frey, delicate flavours from Le Palais des ThésHermès bath products in all staterooms and suites, spa care products by Sothy’s, and signature perfumes from Fragonard.

AWARD-WINNING

AWARD-WINNING. Included.

PONANT is regularly awarded for the quality of its services and its unique cruising concept. From Travel & Leisure and Cruise Critic to NABU and Berlitz, the list of award presenters reads like a who’s who in travel and sustainability.

Cruise with Confidence

Cruise with Confidence. Included.

On land or onboard, your safety is our top concern. This means we uphold strict health and safety measures. As the rules and regulations change and evolve, PONANT is continuing to adapt and optimize its already robust protocols, integrating all the technological, human, and material measures to ensure the provision and maintenance of a healthy bubble. This reinforced protection is based on three “shields” designed to guarantee onboard conditions, sanitary protocols, and daily monitoring (guests, equipment, and ships). For your added safety and peace of mind, doctors and nurses are present on every ship. Find PONANT’s detailed and ever-evolving protocols HERE.

A 15-NIGHT SUN-FILLED VACAYA LUXE ADVENTURE AWAITS

Le Boreal, like Sisterships L’Austral, Le Soléal, and Le Lyrial, epitomizes the unique feel and atmosphere of the ships of the PONANT fleet. Subtly combining luxury, intimacy, and serene well-being, the ship has been designed to offer her guests both moments of conviviality and spaces conducive to peaceful tranquility and a sense of escape and getting away from it all. Her exterior and interior lines testify to the ingeniousness and refinement with which the Sisterships have been designed.

Le Boreal was built in 2010 and has led the way among PONANT’s expedition ships for over a decade. She is a stunning vessel with sleek lines and an unusual dark-gray hull that makes her truly stand out. Le Boreal is decidedly upscale and unashamedly French. She’s guaranteed to take your breath away.

RESTAURANTS, BARS, & OTHER VENUES

THE SUPER YACHT ADVANTAGE. Included.

The upside of going on smaller vessels like the super yachts of PONANT is that you can visit seaside cities and towns that don’t have ports or harbors constructed with enormous ships in mind. This allows you to get right to the heart of the culture of your chosen destination, and you won’t find yourself hampered by all of the Duty-Free outlets that characteristically dominate the larger ports. It’s one thing to explore a busy and thriving metropolis. It’s quite another to witness the extraordinarily intimate atmosphere of a smaller port of call. And with smaller vessels, you don’t have to worry about missing out on larger ports; we can go to those, too! So you’ll enjoy plenty of variety during your journey with VACAYA.

Look for this symbol within the itinerary section of The Overview page to understand which ports are exclusive to smaller ships.

STATEROOMS

STATEROOMS. Included.

Elegantly-designed staterooms and spacious suites boast a warm contemporary interior design by Jean-Philippe Nuel. The designer took direct inspiration from the destinations and cultures explored during PONANT’s stopovers and then punctuated the design with beautiful ethnic touches. Every stateroom onboard boasts a lovely veranda, open minibar (replenished as needed), and unlimited WiFi access, and 24-hour room service. Select suites offer even more luxuries including butler service to tend to your every need including unpacking and repacking upon request. See pricing page for specifics.

POOL & NATURE VIEWING DECK

POOL & NATURE VIEWING DECK. Included.

The ship’s heated pool offers a panoramic view of our surroundings and is equipped with a counter-current swimming system for those who wish to maintain their lap swimming regimen while on vacation (or show off your physical endurance for the entire shipboard community). This is THE spot for daytime relaxation. There’s also an outdoor bar and loungers, chairs, and sofas, perfect for our organized events and parties or simply meeting up with your friends.

RESTAURANTS

RESTAURANTS. Included.

On Deck 2 Aft, you’ll find the ship’s panoramic restaurant, which can accommodate all of us in a single sitting. This dining area, which opens onto the outside, will have a buffet of salads, desserts, and cheeses at your disposal. And the ship’s discrete and attentive crew will provide table service for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. For a more relaxed atmosphere, an outdoor grill on Deck 7 serves grilled meats with a variety of salads and desserts. And of course, complimentary room service is available to you 24×7.

LOUNGES & BARS

LOUNGES & BARS. Included.

Different lounges enable guests to socialize and share moments together during their cruise. Our ship features a main lounge, an ideal place to meet over a drink and watch daytime or evening events; the panoramic lounge, an intimate bar with a unique view of the horizon; and the outdoor bar, a relaxation area with access to the pool and solarium. The main lounge can accommodate all guests for VACAYA’s social activities both day and night.

THEATER

            TRIP INSURANCE

            There is one question every traveler across the globe universally faces: should I purchase Travel Insurance? It’s natural to ask yourself, should I spend the extra dollars to protect my vacation investment? Or do I leave it in the hands of Lady Luck and hope for the best. At VACAYA, we’ve always believed Trip Insurance was critical to the vacation planning process. That’s why we took special care to integrate the purchase opportunity into our online booking process. Pre-pandemic, the main reason to buy insurance was to assure your safe return home if something were to happen to your health while on vacation. That’s because quality insurance covers medical evacuation so people don’t have to pay medical emergency transportation expenses out of their own pocket.

            With Covid-19 in our lives for the foreseeable future, we now have an even stronger rationale for recommending Trip Insurance. “Cancel For Any Reason” insurance has quickly risen in popularity, and for good reason. If you decide you don’t want to travel after the cancellation penalty period has begun, this type of insurance covers most if not all of your cancellation fee. It’s also a great way to help honor your Social Contract with VACAYA.

            So go ahead and buy that bucket list trip, but protect your health and your investment by purchasing Trip Insurance. ❤️
