Out Traveler Awards: Time to Vote


By OUTTraveler Editors

It's a big world out there, with endless opportunities for adventure, love, learning, sex, and culture. We want to know what you think are the places worth a plane ride, and your dollars, in 2013.

Most Awesome Cruise Excursion
For those wishing to be out to sea, but never out of things to do.

Al and Chuck Drag Stars at Sea Cruise
Riding on the Royal Caribbean's Splendour of the Seas, this trip brings you up and close personal with numerous Drag Race stars, performing and partying together. Next year's journey travels through Dubrovnik, Croatia, Turkey, Santorini, the Greek Isles, and Venice.

Atlantis Events
All the Atlantis adventures promise sun, sweat, and sexy men. Dance till dawn, sleep a few hours, and check out the ports of call, from the Caribbean to South America to the Far East. It doesn't happen until March, but we're excited for the exotic Bali to Singapore cruise.

Disney Cruise Line
If you’ve got the kids in tow, there’s simply not a better option. With world-class hospitality, legendary service, and all of the magic of Disney, this one of kind voyage lets adults be adults and kids be kids. With deck parties, fireworks, and an adults-only pool, there’s never a lack of options for just adults, just kids, or the whole family together.

Olivia Travel
If it's not enticing enough to be around thousands of like-minded women on a luxurious boat, this year Olivia Travel upped the ante for their 40th year. The company hosted a huge floating party to the south Caribbean. Legends like Billie Jean King, Edie Windsor, and Col. Margarethe Cammermeyer added historic and political significance to all the fun.

Pride of the Ocean
If you can’t decide between an LGBT film festival and a cruise, why not combine them? No really, they actually combined them. In addition to great films, the LGBT specific cruise line offer luxurious and fun things to do, including delicious dining options, bars and lounges, a casino, spa, pools, and fitness center.

Robin Tyler International Tours and Cruises
These under-the-radar adventures are led by political activist Robin Tyler and her wife Diane Olson. These journeys travel to exotic places like Myanmar, Botswana, and Jordan. The next trip, in 2015, will include men for the first time since its inception in 1990.
