Greece’s Variety Cruises Continues to Honor LGBTQ+ Community

Variety Cruises, a long-standing member of the International LGBTQ+ Travel Association (IGLTA), and a strong supporter of The Trevor Project, is celebrating Pride Month.

Constantine Venetopoulos, director of communications & PR for Variety, part of the third generation of this Greek and family-owned cruise line, will be joining guests onboard this year’s “Limited Collection” LGBTQ+ itinerary, which sets sail on October 28, 2023. Venetopoulos has been a volunteer counselor of The Trevor Project, whose mission is to end suicide among LGBTQ young people since 2011, and is also the director of the film “Draw With Me,” which was the first documentary on transgender history to be presented at the United Nations during the 50th anniversary of the Stone Wall riots. He now leads the Gender Equality pillar of the Variety Cares foundation.

To mark the Pride Month, the cruise line is offering a “Limited Collection” LGBTQ+ cruise in the Seychelles. Highlights include an “Off-Broadway-at-Sea” night led by a guest host, influencer, actor and model Edward Pishiyski and soft adventure tours exploring the beauty and culture of the destination. For bookings made until June 30, 2023, travelers benefit from a 10 percent discount on double occupancy. This eight-day itinerary is a round trip to Mahé island and takes passengers to multiple destinations. Optional excursions offer further opportunity to explore the underwater world, tropical jungles and beaches.

The rates on the 148-foot Pegasus for the “Limited Collection” LGBTQ+ cruise start at $3,050 ($470 port taxes excluded).
