Olivia, the globally-known lesbian travel agency, will mark its 35th anniversary next year while celebrating women's sports historical events, including Billie Jean King's monumental win in the 'The Battle of the Sexes' and the passing of Title IX into law. Olivia will honor these events by offering its first 'Women in Sports Cruise,' departing the Mexican Rivera on Oct. 4, 2008, and returning to San Diego exactly one week later, on Oct. 11.
The cruise will also include an All-Star basketball game featuring popular WNBA players and other iconic women sports figures. Additionally, Olivia will host 'Breakfast of Women Champions' onboard, a fundraiser benefiting the Women's Sports Foundation.
