San Francisco, Calif. (PRWEB) January 28, 2013
As many women add “make smart financial decisions” to their list of new year’s resolutions, Olivia Travel will offer the professional advice to help them succeed: Suze Orman, the world’s leading personal finance expert, will join guests on Olivia’s new Buenos Aires to Rio de Janeiro cruise, January 21-28, 2014. This is the first time Olivia, the world’s premier provider of lesbian cruise, resort and adventure vacations, has sailed to these spectacular South America ports of call, and it all takes place aboard Silversea Cruises’ luxurious, 296-passenger Silver Cloud ship. With Orman as a special celebrity guest, the all-inclusive trip promises to be one of the most exciting, entertaining and educational in the company’s 23-year history of lesbian travel.
Orman is a New York Times bestselling author, columnist and two-time Emmy Award-winning television host who is the country’s most recognized personal finance professional. Her popular Suze Orman Show, now in its 12th season, airs each Saturday on CNBC. She is a contributing editor to O, The Oprah Magazine, and USA Today has called Orman “a force in the world of personal finance” and a “one-woman financial advice powerhouse.” While cruising with Olivia, Orman will present a one-hour talk on managing one’s personal finances. She will also address queries during an exclusive one-hour question-and-answer session.
“I'm excited to join Olivia Travel on this South American cruise and I look forward to teaching the women onboard how to keep their money afloat," says Suze Orman.
Cruise guests can look forward to eight sun-kissed days and seven action-packed nights, including stops at some of the world’s most beautiful beaches and beguiling cities. The journey begins in Buenos Aires, with culturally rich neighborhoods perfect for exploring, before making back-to-back stops in Montevideo and Punta del Este, Uruguay. The former boasts big-city charm, and the latter is dubbed “the St. Tropez of Uruguay” for its upscale restaurants, outdoor activities and golden sands. After a day at sea, guests can explore beachfront gardens and the famous marine museum in Santos, Brazil, before disembarking the following day in Parati, Brazil. The UNESCO World Heritage site offers historic treasures and abundant nature excursions. Then, two days in Rio de Janeiro will end the trip on a high note. One of the world’s most gay-friendly destinations, this vibrant city welcomes guests with an unparalleled selection of gorgeous beaches, daytime tours, evening shows and more.
The cruise takes place aboard Silversea Cruises’ Silver Cloud, a luxurious ship that features spacious ocean-view suites accommodating 296 guests. Nearly all rooms have private verandahs, along with plush robes, fine linens, cut flowers, butler service and stocked in-room refrigerators. In addition to a spa, fitness center, pool and library, the ship offers shopping, a cognac bar, a dance club and several other lounges and restaurants.
