Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently asked questions, specific to our trip to Rio for New Years

Is the TAM flight upgradeable?

Will I receive miles on a partner airline if I take the TAM flight?
Currently, you will accrue miles on United and Air France. However, we recommend you check directly with TAM for their current frequent flyer partners as partnerships tend to change frequently.

Is safety a concern in Rio?
Our experience is that Rio is a safe destination, and that using common sense will go a long way in providing a fun, carefree holiday.

Do I need a visa to travel to Brazil?
If you are a United States citizen and/or are traveling from the United States, you will need a visa to travel to Brazil. You must wait until 90 days prior to arrival into Brazil before you apply for your visa, and visa forms are available on our website.

Danube Explorer Eastern Europe All-Gay River Cruise 2017

October 12 – 19, 2017
Emerald Waterways Emerald Star

All-Gay Eastern Europe Danube Explorer All-Gay Cruise 2016 Explore the magical vistas and undiscovered beauty of Eastern Europe next fall as RSVP takes 182 guests through the best of the Danube on the sparkling Emerald Star. Head off the beaten path into some of the world’s most fascinating places starting with Hungary’s legendary capital city of Budapest.

Our epic 7-night journey visits 5 countries that for decades were hidden behind the Iron Curtain as we sail eastward on the legendary Danube toward Bucharest, Romania. Along the way, you’ll be thrilled by the explosive colors of autumn on one of the world’s most fertile and breathtaking rivers. It’s the best time to see the Danube in all its glory, with all the fun and friendship of an intimate RSVP gay river cruise.

Danube River All-Gay Cruise - Iron Gate, Romania

 

Eastern Europe’s Capitals Up Close And Personal

Danube gay cruise - BudapestRSVP provides you with a unique perspective on this fascinating region with our thoughtfully crafted original itinerary. After an overnight in Hungary’s thriving capital city of Budapest, where castles and markets beckon and a vibrant gay life entices, our journey eastward on the Danube begins.

Explore one of the oldest towns in Hungary, Kalocsa, before heading to the border of Croatia to spend a day in the life of the local people. Next up is the capital of Serbia, Belgrade, which was founded in the 2nd Century and has been razed to the ground 44 times over the millennia. What stands here now is a city on the verge – ready to embrace today’s world with all it has to offer. Throw in the Bel Ami beauty of its residents and no doubt this will be one of your favorite stops.

On our way to Bulgaria, we’ll sail through the narrow gorge known as the Iron Gates, which separate the Carpathian Mountains from the European Alps. This day onboard gives you a chance to truly relax and take in the region’s stunning fall foliage in prime color. Our next four stops – Svishtov, Veliko Tarnovo, Arbanassi, and Silistra – offer an in-depth experience in mysterious and culturally fascinating Bulgaria. The Ottomans had great influence here, ruling much of the country for over five centuries.

Our final stop is the capital of Romania, Bucharest. Known as «The Paris of the East,» this city provides the perfect launching point for further Eastern European adventures. Choose to stay in Bucharest for several days or perhaps head off to Transylvania in search of its famed Count. The possibilities for adventure are as vivid as the colors around us!

Activities & Entertainment

Emerald Star poolEmerald’s onboard ship experience is as lively and as captivating as your time on shore! Attend exclusive events like beer and wine tastings, demonstrations by local artisans, and talks by local experts about the areas through which you’re traveling. Play a game in the lounge. Relax on the Sun Deck. Be pampered in the hair salon. Work out in the gym. Take a dip in the pool. Join new friends for movie night. Sing along in the piano lounge. Or enjoy the local entertainers we’ve brought onboard to give you a full appreciation for the region and its culture. Mix in all of RSVP’s signature acts, social events, and activities and you’ll soon discover countless ways to be entertained.

Farm-To-Table Dining

Emerald Star diningOne of the absolute best aspects of river cruising is that much of the food served is sourced locally and designed for discerning tastes. Star’s onboard culinary team delivers hearty and satisfying fare with their signature European service. From a delicious meal in the main restaurant to an alfresco breakfast or light lunch on The Terrace, you’ll delight in culinary diversity. As with all RSVP vacations, you’re free to sit wherever you want and with whomever you want. It’s the perfect way to meet friends old and new in a relaxed setting.

Begin your mornings early or late – it’s your choice. Either way, a sumptuous breakfast awaits. Enjoy lunch inside or outside. We think you’ll agree the delightful open-air seating is the perfect place to lunch while admiring the passing fall scenery. Dinnertime beckons with 5-star service, the finest chef-inspired recipes, and complimentary regional wines. With good food, great friends, and an elegant setting, your dining experience is sure to be a memorable one.

Innovative Stateroom Design

Emerald Star stateroomAfter a day of sightseeing, nothing feels better than retreating to your own personal sanctuary. Within your deluxe stateroom or suite, you’ll savor the luxury of spacious, well-appointed rooms. With around 200 square feet, Panorama and Grand Balcony Suites are larger than the industry standard. Since most staterooms feature a large open-air balcony, you’ll experience Europe’s beauty and history even while inside. And that means a more comfortable, relaxing, and enjoyable vacation for you.

To replace standard French Balcony suites that are common on river cruise ships, Emerald has transformed the concept by creating a new type of indoor balcony. With a separate decked area and ingenious open-air system, you can interact with the outdoors with a touch of a button! The upper half of the cabin’s floor-to-ceiling window drops down to let in fresh air and allows you to connect with the autumn landscape.

We begin with you.

We know this is your vacation and it’s our goal to make it enjoyable. It’s a time for you to relax, be entertained, experience new places, and make new friends. And we’ll work hard to see that you do. But we won’t stop there.

We build a community.

For one week, the ship is ours and no one else’s. We book the entire ship and run it our way. We’ll customize just about every aspect–from the shows you see to the hours of the restaurants–to give you, our guests, the best vacation experience. From singles dinners, to sing-a-longs, from pool games to dance parties, we’ll give you plenty of opportunities to mix, mingle, and meet new friends.

We entertain, enlighten, and engage.

RSVP Vacations’ entertainment staff works all year to bring you some of the finest, gay-positive entertainment. Powerful vocalists, Broadway favorites, and some really hot newcomers have performed on our main stage. But that’s just one of the many venues we fill with everything from hot new comedians, compelling one-man (or woman) shows, enriching or inspirational speakers, exciting cabaret acts, and the best of current gay and mainstream movies. There’s always so much happening on an RSVP cruise that you’ll want to do it all. Don’t worry, though…there’s usually more than one opportunity to see everything.

We let you strut your stuff and get your groove on.

Our theme parties are legendary. Tie on a sarong, or slip into your leathers, be a r1superhero, or an angel (or a devil), or just come as you are. We’ll supply the music–dance anthems, driving beats, even some classic disco–spun by some of the best DJs in the business. And you haven’t really experienced a party until you’ve danced on the open deck of a ship at sea, surrounded by happy people. Don’t like to dance? That’s OK, too. There’s always plenty of great vantage points to sit back and watch the spectacle.

We tempt your palate and satisfy your cravings.

Hungry? There are so many options to dine, snack, or just nibble. Join some r3friends or take a quiet table for two and enjoy a sumptuous multi-course meal in the main restaurant. We don’t assign tables or dining times, so you can dine when you wantand with whom you want. Or you can make an occasion (or just an evening) memorable in one of the specialty restaurants with their unique menus and unparalleled service. Maybe you prefer the many choices of the casual dining buffet. You can even order room service at any time of the day or night; it’s included!

We want you to relax and be comfortable.

This is your vacation, after all, so you deserve to be pampered. We charter only top-rated ships from world class lines. Sleep in (it’s OK, you won’t be bothered), lounge by the pool reading a good book, soak in a jacuzzi, or treat yourself to a relaxing massage or invigorating facial at the spa. Rather break a sweat? Work out in a fully equipped gym, take a yoga class, or jog on a track with a view of the sea. After a long day of fun and sun, return to your well-appointed room, put your feet up and relax. You’ve already unpacked, so everything’s right where you want r2it—where it will stay until it’s time to go home.

We are here for you.

Need anything? Just ask. Team RSVP is here to answer your questions, guide you on the ship, and introduce you to new friends and places. And with the courteous and professional assistance of the ship’s staff to handle your enjoyment of its

Gay Life Croatia Info

In smaller towns and tourist resorts, generally speaking, LGBT people meet in bars, clubs and c afés which are known to be gathering LGBT people and which are gay-friendly but do not specifically count as being gay. There are a lot of such places throughout Croatia and the atmosphere in many of them, not all, is relaxed and open-minded towards homosexuals.

If you are spending your vacation in a seaside resort you will have the best chance to meet LGBT people by visiting the gay beaches – and there are a lot of them along the amazing Adriatic coast. However, do not expect them to be too crowdie. In public places LGBT persons tend to act «straight» and therefore hard to «detect» while they’re much more relaxed at the gay beaches. It is usually very easy to make contact with people in Croatia and when you get a Croatian friend you’ll have a friend for life.

Many say that Croatia is a Mediterranean naturist paradise and judging by the number of nude beaches along the Croatian Adriatic coast this may well be the truth. Naked sunbathers are welcomed since the beginning of the last century when naturists were allowed only on a few especially designated areas. Today, except on official nudist beaches marked as “FKK”, nudity is often tolerated on many other so called «wild beaches».

 

Exclusively gay Adriatic Croatia cruise

Many say Croatia is the hottest new European destination. Well, hot, it certainly is, but new? Hardly. Croatia is as old as the hills, drawing Europeans who appreciate its beauty, beaches, history, culture and affordability. In the past few years more and more Americans, Aussies and tourists from other continents are discovering Croatia as well.

A place like Croatia offers a lot for everyone. Roman ruins and medieval villages are ubiquitous. The country’s long rugged island-dotted coastline covers practically the entire eastern seaboard of the Adriatic, and there’s no shortage of ancient towns encircled by picturesque crumbling walls. Vineyards, olive groves and beaches complete a montage of landscapes right out of central casting.

 

 

Exclusively gay Adriatic Croatia cruise

Split

Split is the largest Croatian coastal city (187,599 inhabitants, 2001) and represents the ideal launching point for any Dalmatian island-hopping. Its traffic-free streets are a living treasure house, and allow you to walk though history without barriers or museum curators.

Exclusively Gay Croatia Cruise from Split The Roman Palace is where students promenade under floodlights at night, sitting in cafes sipping cappuccinos. The site was first settled when, at the end of the third century AD, the Roman Emperor Diocletian built his palace here. The importance of Diocletian’s Palace far transcends local significance because of its level of preservation and the buildings of succeeding historical periods built within its walls, which today form the very heart of old Split. Diocletian’s Palace is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

Gay Disco:
Metropolis is known as the unofficial gay club among male homosexuals, lesbians and bisexuals in Split. The attitude in the club is macho and you will need a «gaydar» or a local gossip columnist with you to detect any gay people here as they act very discreet. Mostly younger LGBT visitors/clientele (14-30 y.o.)

Gay Bars:
Getto Club, Dosud 6, Club in the old palace owned by wonderful lesbian couple Klub Svjetskih Putnika, Gay-welcomed cafe-bar behind The National Theatre, north of Diocletian’s Palace in centre of Split. Gay and Lesbian mixed crowd. Medium popular.

Bula- Club in the old palace Porta- Club in the old palace Semafor The cafe-bar opposite the main Post Office (HP)

Gay Beaches:
Gay Nude Beach Croatia Duilovo gay nude beach This is the most active and popular gay beach near Split. The meeting spot can be found on the hills above the rocky strip of land between hotel Zagreb and Stobrec village. There is rocky beach with pine trees above the shore. Woods are, obviously, very cruisy. Almost everybody is gay here. To get there take the bus number 15 from the city. If you have a car, drive into Stobrec and park near the school and walk down to the beach. Very popular/active

Marjan beach The Marjan hill (178m high), lies on the west side of the city. Today it is a park forest. This is a large peninsula poking out into the Adriatic to the west of the city center. The park is a great place to bike around (you can rent bikes near the entrance for a few kuna), walk the wooded trails, or dip your toes into the sea along the shoreline. It’s a popular weekend spot for Split residents.

Gay men often visit beautiful beach just before Institute of Oceanography (Institut za oceanografiju). It is a rocky and hilly area and it is not exclusively gay and in fact very mixed. We recommend you to be discreet. To get there take the bus no. 12 from the church of St. Francis in the center, near hotel Bellevue. Take off at Institute and walk down to the beach by steep path.

Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik is one of the most beautiful cities on the Croatian coast. In the middle ages the Republic of Dubrovnik was an important rival of Venice. Many buildings in the old city center testify of this glorious past and to its Venetian influence.

The walls of Dubrovnik girdle a perfectly preserved complex of public and private, sacral and secular buildings representing all periods of the city’s history, beginning with its founding in the 7th century. Particular mention should be made of the city’s main street, Stradun, the Prince’s Palace, the church of St Vlaho, the Cathedral, three large monasteries, the Custom’s Office and the City Hall.

Exclusively gay Croatia Cruise from Dubrovnik The Republic of Dubrovnik was the centre of a separate Croatian political and territorial entity, and was proud of its culture, its achievements in commerce and especially of its freedom, preserved down so many tempestuous centuries.

Considered the gateway to the Adriatic Sea and consistently ranked among the most beautiful cities in Europe, Dubrovnik has been nicknames the «Pearl of the Adriatic» and ha been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979. During the Middle Ages it rivaled Venice for the shear amount of maritime trade in and out of its ports. Now home to glistening beaches and an old medieval city complete with gates, walls, and a castle, the city combines old-world charm, modern luxury, and brilliant beaches while maintaining its small-town, remote feel. No stranger to parties, Dubrovnik also hosts a Summer Festival that is the largest in the region.

Dubrovnik Gay Scene
Gay friendly Trubadour Cafe Dubrovnik Dubrovnik is also very popular gay and lesbian destination. Actually there are not gay discos and gay scene is reduced to the very popular and well-visited Lokrum Beach on the Lokrum island. In the town gays and lesbians meet each other in only one gay cafe – Troubadur.

Troubadour Hard Jazz Cafe is on the square on the eastern end of the Old Town. Described as a «hard jazz cafe,» this bar has a great collection of jazz that it plays when jazz musicians aren’t on stage during the summer. A great place to hang out. No cover charge. Café Troubadour has wonderful terrace and the live soft jazz which gives those balmy nights a perfect sense of artistic completeness.

Dubrovnik Gay Beaches:

Lokrum Beach The nudist rocky beach at Lokrum Island is outside of Dubrovnik. It is the most popular meeting place for gay guys in Dubrovnik. Take the boat from the harbor of Dubrovnik to Lokrum Island which is leaving every 30 minutes till 8pm. Travel time is about 10 minutes. The gay beach is on the end of nudist area. From the harbor at Lokrum there is a 5-10 minutes walk to the nudist beach. Just follow the road to the left after debarking the vessel. There are clear signs showing you the way. After a slight climbing of the road you’re entering the nudist area. The nudist part (the left part of the island) is very large and quiet (even in August!), and the water is wonderful…large rocks and easy access to the sea. The gay area is, as always, at the end of the rocks, just before a wonderful water canyon with unbelievable water colours. This is one of the most known gay nude beaches in Croatia and woods above the beach can be «cruisy». A small paradise!

Babin Kuk Located on the Babin Kuk part of the town. Walk down the path next to the hotel President. When you reach the stairs turn toward steep rocks. This is where gay men come to enjoy sun and sea… Head from the town on the number 4 bus line. The gay beach is between the end of the no. 4 bus line (a big hotel President) and Copacabana Beach. If you are walking from the bus stop to Copacabana, the gay area is before reaching Copacabana. There is really no beach, just rocks and boulders! Pretty spot, though!

Korcula Island

Korcula, birthplace of Marco Polo (1254), is, after Lokrum and Mljet, the third most densely wooded island of Croatia.

Gay Croatia - Korcula There is much evidence of a highly-developed social life on Korcula even in the 13th century. The Statute of Korcula, signed in 1214, prohibited the slave trade for the first time in Europe. It also spoke about the order and management of the city. Korcula makes an excellent base for day trips to places like Mljet and other islands of the Elafiti group (southeast of Korcula Island). Korcula is also famous for its traditional dance Moreska that has been performed for more than four centuries

Gay Beaches:
Gay Croatia - Przina Nudist Beach Przina beach (Town of Lumbarda) Two the most beautiful, Bili Zal and Przina, are located near the seaside town of Lumbarda, 6 kilometers east of Korcula town.

Islet of Proizd, immediately outside the bay of Vela Luka, is an oasis of untouched nature – crystal clear sea, rocks, white pebbles, naturist beaches and lush vegetation are its main attractions.

Gay Croatia - Vaja Beach, KorculaVaja Beach (Town of Racisce) Beach Vaja near village of Racisce – Beach Vaja is a small not official naturist beach with white pebbles and azure sea water.

Hvar Island

Exclusively Gay Croatia Cruise - HvarHvar Island with its flower-filled gardens, its palms, its orange and lemon groves, its fragrance of rosemary, its enchanting countryside affording glimpses of a deep blues see, is an island of captivating charm. Hvar Island, the «Croatian Mykonos», is one of the most popular «gay-islands» in Croatia. The main town on the island, Hvar Town is a very popular LGBT resort and the popularity of the town is increasing for each year.

Fabulous Hvar Town, which is a small and charming medieval town situated in the southwest of Hvar Island, is attracting young good-looking gay/lesbian charter-tourists and bag packers as well as the international Jet Set and globetrotters from all around the world.

Exclusively Gay Croatia Cruise - HvarThere are no LGBT organisations, official LGBT bars or clubs in Hvar Town where LGBT people meet. However, the town has a very lively nightlife when the tourist-season is in full swing and gays and lesbians meet each other in the hip bars at the harbour. Hvar Town is chic, youthful, vibrant and fun. It is easy to fall in love with Hvar Town and many gays and lesbians return from a year to another. There are great opportunities to make new friends at the Saint Jerolim Beach in summer and if you have been to the gay beach you will recognise people later on in the evening when strolling around in the town centre.

Exclusively Gay Croatia Cruise - HvarHvar is the fourth largest island at 300 sq. km [182 sq. m.]. It is the sunniest island in the Adriatic with almost 2,800 hours of sunshine per year. However, there is enough rain to keep the island green and to maintain the beautiful fields of lavender, rosemary, sage, marjoram and thyme and carefully cultivated vineyards. Many people remark that in the spring Hvar smells like an herbalist shop. When in Hvar, you must purchase some lavender oil, which is the major export of the island. The hoteliers on the island pride themselves with the consistently good weather – if there is more than four hours of rain per day, they give a reduction on your stay and if snow falls [which happens once a year, on average] your stay is free!

CarpeDiem Bar This lounge bar is located on the harbour. A famous posh bar for beautiful and fashionable people – being at the top of the list of the most popular bars among gay men. Amazing are afterbeach parties.

The gay area is about 300m long all along the east side of the island, and it is one of the busiest gay beaches in Croatia.The busiest time is August when Hvar is packed with mostly Italian tourists.

Vrboska Beach can be found in the Bay of Vrboska, after the nudist camp outside Vrboska Village, which is situated not far from Jelsa in the northern part of Hvar Island. The beach is not as popular as the Jerolim Beach outside Hvar Town, but then, if you are staying in Vrboska or Jelsa this is a closer choice.

Jelsa nude beach HvarIza Ige Beach (Town of Jelsa) Behind the last pier with the light house (red one) there is a nudist beach where you can meet gay people.

Island of Mljet

Mljet is an eight largest island of the Adriatic sea and one of the most indented. It is situated near wondrous city of Dubrovnik and it has been inhabited since ancient Greek times. More then 70 % of surface of the island is covered by forest and that is why Mljet is also called «the green island». Because of particularly attractive landscapes of the western part of Mljet that area (about 1/3 of the whole area) was declared a National park in 1960.

Exclusively Gay Croatia Cruise - Blace Beach, MljetBlace Beach naturist beach Blace beach is located in the most beautiful sandy bay at the very southeastern end of the island. It takes a twenty minutes of walk to get there from a small village called Saplunara. Beach is nearly 1 km long, surrounded by coronet of centenary pines and presents a shining example of primordial intact nature. This is not an official naturist beach and it is used by both naturists and textiles.

There aren’t any official naturist beaches on the island of Mljet and none of the beaches is marked as one. But the island offers hundreds of lovely, little pebble stone coves and bays, many of them reachable only by boat, where you can be undisturbed and enjoy total privacy for a day.

Good to Know Before Visiting Croatia

No official gay beaches! There are many naturist beaches and campsites and also many «wild» or not official nudist beaches on Adriatic coast (plus coasts of the rivers or lakess in some cities). Keep in mind that unfortunately there are no strictly gay official naturist beach (like gay naturist resort for example) in any country, there are only unofficial or official nudist beaches that are visited by gays only, with majority or minority of gay visitors.

Middelhavskysten

Kissing on the street not recommended! Kissing and hugging in open public places streets, public transportation and shops, malls, restaurants, cinemas, theatres… is not recommened even if it is allowed by the law in many counties. We strongly suggest relaxed behaviour only in strictly gay clubs and bars (marked with «gay & lesbian», «men only», «more lesbian»…).

Precautions when visiting cruising areas! Visiting places like city parks, cruising areas, bushes, forests, promenades, public toilets and such is at your own risk. These listed spots are not official gay places and most of them could be risky even if they seem open and tolerant.
