Toast Our History at an Exclusive Cocktail Party Celebrating Lesbian Pioneers

Join us in the Spice H2O Lounge on The Norwegian Breakaway as we pass the Statue of Liberty and raise our glasses to the many lesbian pioneers who were instrumental in creating the advances in LGBT rights that so many of us enjoy today.
