7-night cruise aboard Celebrity Silhouette to visit Eastern Caribbean 

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (January 4, 2018) – With the LGBT community making up six to eight percent of the U.S. travel market according to Cruise Lines International Association, national travel agency franchise Dream Vacations is hosting its first annual LGBT Getaways Group Cruise. This lifestyle cruise will join together an intimate group of like-minded individuals aboard the Celebrity Silhouette, which departs Fort Lauderdale on April 8, 2018, for a 7-night voyage to the Eastern Caribbean.

“We decided to launch the LGBT Getaways Cruise to respond to the demand from consumers and our travel agents for this niche group that wants a lifestyle vacation experience in a more traditional and sophisticated atmosphere,” said Drew Daly, General Manager of Dream Vacations. “Celebrity Cruises has always been an advocate for the LGBT community so it was a no-brainer to partner with them on this group cruise, which has already been met with a positive response.”

The LGBT Getaways Cruise will visit San Juan, Puerto Rico; Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas and Philipsburg, St. Maarten. Members of the group will experience an exclusive shore excursion with Resort for a Day, and participate in a wine tasting and themed cocktail parties throughout the week.

“My husband and business partner Shane and I are very excited for the launch of the first LGBT-focused cruise for Dream Vacations,” said Trapper Martin, Dream Vacations franchise owner and vacation specialist based in Belle Isle, Fla. “We plan on escorting this inaugural cruise and are excited to be part of the first edition of this annual cruise, which we are confident will grow each year.”
