Our newest cruise sails to the most beautiful and exotic islands in the Caribbean, starting with our first-ever visit to the picture-perfect beaches of Punta Cana. Powder-white sand and endless shores meet azure waters to set the stage for an idyllic day.


Vibrant San Juan invites you to explore the charming streets of Old Town or the sophisticated beaches in Condado, or discover the natural beauty just minutes from the city.

If you’re in the mood to shop, the streets of Philipsburg on St. Maarten offer the best deals in the Caribbean. And the rest of the island boasts incredible tours, inviting beaches, world-class restaurants, and the distinctive flavor of both French and Dutch cultures on one majestic island.

After a relaxing day at sea, we’ll arrive at our own private island of Half Moon Cay, your only decision is whether find a chair on the luxurious beach or join a few friends in the crystal blue waters. Add exceptional snorkeling and a few sports options for the perfect day in every way.


Of course, the best days with RSVP cruise are enjoyed at sea. Start with a lazy brunch with friends. Wander up to our sunny decks, sparkling pools, and whirlpools to play and relax.


Treat yourself to a treatment in the award-winning Greenhouse Spa. Take in a fitness class from our talented instructors, work out in the super-modern gym, or get your game on at our outdoor basketball and volleyball courts.

Just save some energy for RSVP’s signature T-dances, pool games, and general good times all day long.


One of the best parts of any RSVP vacation is sharing a meal with friends old and new and you’ll find a breadth of remarkable dining options onboard. From the two-story main restaurant, to favorites like Pinnacle Grill steakhouse, Tamarind’s Asian specialties, and Canaletto’s rustic Italian, you’ll find something for every taste and style.


For a casual bite, the Lido Market turns out a never-ending selection of delicious treats day and night that always keeps you coming back for more. And of course, the absolute best pizza at sea, along with Holland America’s signature pool-side “Dive-In” burger bar are sure to satisfy any craving!

Every RSVP meal is designed for sharing great times, with no assigned dining times or tables. You’re free to dine whenever you want, with whomever you want. And come as you are since we have no stuffy dress codes!


RSVP has cultivated the world’s finest gay and lesbian entertainers, with unique shows designed just for you. Our main stage celebrity performers will keep you spellbound with everything from Broadway to drag, comedy to classical, and almost everything in between.


Legendary RSVP Cabaret stars headline in the intimate lounges and piano bars onboard, bringing you up close to the show in ways you never imagined. And of course, you’ll enjoy the talents of our onboard cast productions along with the dazzling BB Kings Blues Band. Plus a few surprises, of course!


Our world-class gay DJs play your favorite hits and more as we transform the outdoor back deck into a friendly and inviting nightclub under the Caribbean sky.


Revel in our theme parties and T-dances ranging from a single color to the truly silly to the RSVP Costume Contest — a tradition that brings out everyone’s creative best. Watch our “booked guests” page for more details about upcoming themes and ideas for this year!
