Olivia travels most of the time on the Holland America cruise line, because 20 years ago, when they approached the company about doing an all lesbian cruise, Holland was very open to the idea, where some other cruise lines were not.
Our ship was the MS Ryndam and accommodates 1200 passengers. On board, almost all expenses are covered. All the food is included in the price of the cruise, including room service and all tips. Alcohol, bottled water and sodas cost extra.
The boat had three swimming pools, a gym and spa, two nice sit-down restaurants and one buffet, a beautiful concert hall, several bars, a casino, shops and plenty of outdoor decks to lounge in the sun.
Holland America does an excellent job with food and customer service. Some Olivia vacations travel on other cruise lines.
