1. Aquafest Cruises

Aquafest offers small group cruises on board regular ocean liners. They host cocktail parties, social get-togethers, gay Olympics and live music events. The company offers far more destination choices as they collaborate with the big cruise ships to offer an exclusive experience on board ships that cater to a mixed clientele. Aquafest is also much cheaper than the full gay cruises.
