Tampa, Florida, US
Sunday, November 22, 2020

Cuba lesbian cruise from TampaTampa is a wonderful jumping-off point for our trip. Walkable from the port are The Florida Aquarium, Tampa Bay History Center, and American Victory Ship and Museum. Within the city limits, visit Busch Gardens, Tampa Zoo at Lowry Park, or the Adventure Island water park. For more history and culture, take the historic TECO trolley to the trendy Ybor City district (AKA the GaYbor district) for chic shopping, fabulous dining and drinking options, and the chance to learn the history of this Cuban-influenced settlement at the Ybor City Museum. History buffs should check out the Henry Plant Museum, a former grand hotel and National Historic Landmark that displays the city’s Victorian heritage.
For some LGBT culture, head to a local club, like The Honey Pot, Southern Nights, or the mixed gay-friendly spot, The Castle. Nearby St Petersburg is home to the Weedon Island Preserve, where you’ll find a 3,700-acre stretch of tidal wetlands rich with bird and marine life. And Disney World is only about an hour and 15-minute drive away.

 

A Day at Sea!

Saturday, November 28, 2020

Olivia lesbian cruise sea dayTake in the views of Caribbean with some friends and drink a glass of wine. Or join in one of the dozens of activities the Olivia team has planned just for you! Take a dance lesson, play bingo, head to the casino, or treat yourself to a spa day...the choices are nearly endless!

 

Georgetown, Grand Cayman
Tuesday, November 24, 2020

Grand Cayman lesbian cruiseThe Cayman Islands have everything you would want from a Caribbean destination—warm breezes, clear seas and a laid-back attitude—but the archipelago also has something you might not expect: an exciting culinary scene. Between the celebrity chefs who’ve set up shop on Grand Cayman and the 135 or so resident nationalities that have helped season the island’s giant melting pot, this is, hands down, one of the best places to eat in the Caribbean. In and around George Town, the Cayman Islands' capital, you’ll find such an amazing array of culinary offerings, you’ll fear for the future of any buttons, snaps or hooks on your waistband.

Cayman Islands lesbian cruiseAnd that’s where the island’s other chief pleasures come in: There’s enough walking (whether along the fabled Seven Mile Beach, around historic sites or through lush gardens) as well as stunning swimming, snorkeling and diving to be done to counter the effects of... So. Much. Good. Food. Or at least you can begin to. Oh, and one warning: Should you wind up at Rum Point—Grand Cayman’s castaway beach imago—there’s a good chance your ship is, by your own design, sailing without you.

 

Mahogany Bay, Roatan
Wednesday, November 25, 2020

Mahogany Bay lesbian cruiseOne of seven in the Bay Islands archipelago in the Caribbean Sea, Roatán sits atop an ancient, exposed coral reef and is positioned near the second-largest barrier reef in the entire world, the Mesoamerican Reef. Its unique—and fragile—ecosystem is a draw for those who are interested in the local flora and fauna, as well as anyone interested in beaches that invite maximum relaxation. Mahogany Bay, a 20-acre (8-hectare) section of Roatán’s port, has a lovely white-sand beach, which can be reached by foot or, for a cool (and cooling) vista, by chairlift.
In the Mahogany Bay cruise center, you’ll find unique restaurants and stores, including some selling local art made of salvaged materials. Another spot to pick up a keepsake is the Stone Castle Cameo Factory, which offers cameos crafted from Honduran conch shells. Adventures on Roatán are, for the most part, low-key, with excursions ranging from garden visits to kayaking, snorkeling, and zip-lining.

 

Costa Maya, Mexico
Thursday, November 26, 2020

Caribbean lesbian cruise - Costa MayaMexico’s Yucatán Peninsula feels, in some ways, a world apart from the rest of Mexico, due in part to its geography. Costa Maya, like the larger resort towns on the Yucatán, offers access to the region’s cultural attractions, including dozens of Maya sites—some of which were only recently rediscovered, excavated and opened to the public. In addition to seeing the pyramids, temples and ceremonial centers of Maya sites like Chacchoben and Kohunlich, modern-day visitors to Costa Maya can experience the Western Hemisphere’s longest reef and cenotes, the sinkhole-formed pools that dot the region. Freshly caught fish and seafood dominate the menus here, as is to be expected, and restaurants are mostly casual in ambiance, with friendly, welcoming service. In Costa Maya you’ll also find shops with beautiful jewelry, featuring gems that are rare or believed to have healing properties.
Back on the ship, enjoy a marvelous Thanksgiving dinner with your Olivia family!

 

Cozumel, Mexico
Friday, November 27, 2020

Caribbean lesbian cruise - Cozumel, MexicoStart your day off with a splash! Cozumel Island is one of the world’s premiere dive spots; the northern part of the Mesoamerican barrier reef lies just 200 yards off the shore. Snorkel above or dive alongside the reef for a chance to see exotic fish, lobsters, crabs, eels, stingrays, and other sea critters. Olivians who are intrigued by Mexico’s Maya culture have a choice of several archaeological sites to visit. Cozumel is home to the San Gervasio ruins, where between approximately 1000 AD and 1500 AD women made offerings to the jaguar goddess of fertility and childbirth, Ix Chel.
Visitors who want their history served with an extra dose of breathtaking beauty can take a ferry across the channel to Tulum, where Mayan ruins sit perched on dramatic sea cliffs overlooking the Mexican Caribbean. And those willing to travel farther can visit one of the new Seven Wonders of the World and famous UNESCO World Heritage site, Chichen Itza—a fusion of the Puuc and central highlands architectural styles of Mexico.
