THE CARIBBEAN’S NEWEST SHIP

 

Holland America’s sparkling new 2650-guest Koningsdam brings you everything RSVP guests love with cutting-edge innovations and brilliant design throughout. Combining the best classical features with striking modern touches, Koningsdam is a true work of art with more dining options than ever before, sensational entertainment venues, and simply gorgeous staterooms. You’ll find her spacious open decks and inviting pools provide the perfect place to work on your tan, finish a great book, meet new friends, or even join a RSVP pool game.

 

EXPLORE THREE GORGEOUS ISLANDS

 

Our incredible new itinerary starts in gay-friendly Ft. Lauderdale of course, sailing to one of the most popular islands in the Caribbean. St. Thomas is home to one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, Magens Bay, where you’ll bask in endless sunshine and crystal blue waters. We’ll then sail to the exciting new port of Amber Cove, an RSVP first, on the northern coast of the Dominican Republic. It’s a perfect spot for exploring untamed wonders or relaxing on pristine powder-white beaches. Our final stop is our private island of Half Moon Cay, always an RSVP favorite. Relax on your own private beach surrounded by warm clear waters and endless water sports, with more options than ever before.

YOUR RSVP. EASIER THAN EVER.

 

With fares as low as $899, it’s easier than ever to join us on our newest vacation. This amazing value includes virtually everything, from world-class entertainment and fabulous parties to incredible accommodations and dining. For over 32 years, RSVP has been creating amazing vacations where everyone is truly welcome. Whether you’re traveling with your partner, spouse, friends, or on your own, you’ll find endless opportunities to connect, play, and simply relax. There’s no better place in the gay and lesbian world where you belong!

At Sea

 

Now that you’ve come to know our little Koni a bit better, it’s the perfect time to relax into the RSVP experience.

Go shopping, snorkeling, and sightseeing, or diving and dining at some of the Caribbean’s most fabulous restaurants. Always ranked among the world’s Top Ten beaches, Magens Bay is our favorite. Still a popular gay hangout, look for the “Little Magens” section on the right along Peterborg Peninsula.

Day 8 - February 18, 2018

Fort Lauderdale, FL

 

We’re back to where it all began…in beautiful gay-friendly Fort Lauderdale. With many of you heading home this Sunday, we wish you all safe travels. For those looking for a Sunday Funday afternoon, brunch and drinks at Rosie’s Bar & Grill is a favorite of RSVP cruisers!

THE REAL FUN IS RIGHT HERE

 

Of course, the best days on an RSVP cruise are spent enjoying a day 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, simply the newest and most modern spa at sea. Take in a fitness class from our talented instructors, or work out in the super-modern gym. Or get your game on at our outdoor basketball/volleyball court. Just save energy for RSVP’s signature t-dances, pool games, and general good times all day long.

 

CULINARY WONDERS REIMAGINED

 

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 to enjoy onboard Koningsdam. From the ultra-modern main restaurant, to favorites like Pinnacle Grill steakhouse, Tamarind’s Asian specialties, Canaletto’s rustic Italian, and the all-new Sel de Mer seafood brasserie and Culinary Arts Center’s farm-to-table dining, you’ll find something for every taste and style. And forget everything you’ve heard about cruise ship buffets -- the new Lido Market turns out a never-ending spread day and night that always keeps you coming back for more.

 

Every RSVP meal is designed for sharing great times, with no assigned dining times and no stuffy dress codes.

 

BRIGHT STARS. BRILLIANT VENUES.

 

With more dazzling entertainment than ever before, you’ll enjoy RSVP signature performers from the gay and lesbian world, stage and screen, along with Holland America’s award-winning productions. RSVP’s stellar line-up of musical artists, comedians, cabaret acts has included such legends as Kathy Najimy, Ann Hampton Callaway, Leslie Jordan, and Ty Herndon along with RSVP favorites Amy & Freddy, Bob the Drag Queen, Sister Helen Holy, and so many more. Look for an amazing new lineup in 2018.

 

Koningsdam features stunning new venues that let our stars shine brighter than ever, starting with the innovative World Stage, featuring a 270-degree wrap-around LED screen. And the two-story Queen’s Lounge showcases RSVP cabaret stars in a whole new way. Notes Piano Bar lets RSVP piano players tear up the keys up-close, while Lincoln Center Stage showcases the best in classical music.
