Bonnie Raitt to Headline Olivia's Caribbean Cruise
By Lynn De La Cruz
American blues artist Bonnie Raitt will headline Olivia Travel’s Thanksgiving Carribbean Cruise.
"Olivia's life-changing, life-saving musical history has always been deeply important to me, as it has to so many," Raitt said in a statement.
Raitt is referring to Olivia Travel founder Judy Dlugacz, who first founded the San Francisco-based independent women’s record label Olivia in 1973. Dlugacz produced over 40 albums and sold more than one million records for artists that include folk singer Meg Christian, blues/rock musician Teresa Trull, and feminist singer-songwriter Cris Williamson, who will appear on the Thanksgiving cruise.
"Our Thanksgiving Caribbean Cruise is a perfect example of what we do best: bring together the greatest entertainment, like Bonnie and Cris, and combine that with simply breathtaking vacation destinations," Dlugacz said in a statement. "Our goal is to help our guests create some of the best memories, both on and off the ship."
The Thanksgiving cruise takes off from Tampa and makes numerous pitstops along the way to the Caribbean. One stop will allow guests to snorkel in Cozumel, while another features the ancient walled city of Tulum. The boat will head towards Guatemala, where waterfalls and freshwater pools lie in San Gill Hill Natural Reserve. There will also be plenty of opportunities to venture along Mayan ruins and sandy beaches. Guests should also look forward to the dining experience that will be provided by celebrity chefs Josie Smith-Malave and Tiffani Faison.
Olivia Travel is known for providing the largest cruises, resorts, and luxury vacations for the lesbian community. The Thanksgiving Carribean cruise is scheduled from November 23 to November 30. For more information on availability and pricing visit Olivia.com.
