Exciting Ports including

Gay-friendly and progressive Seattle is as much about reinvention as it is landscape. And what a landscape! There are lakes, mountains, and forests everywhere you look. Catch a salmon at Pike Place Market, ride to the top of the Space Needle, sample a local microbrew in Fremont, or visit Seattle’s gayborhood, Capitol Hill. RSVP will host a series of inviting events to help you make the most of this remarkable Pacific Northwest icon..
Have a balcony stateroom? Breakfast on your verandah is the perfect way to start this day. Where the day takes you is entirely up to you, of course, but we’ve got a feeling you’ll be exploring Eurodam and enjoying all the beauty that surrounds us.
No roads lead to Juneau; arrivals are by air or water only. This place will delight you with its bounty of natural beauty. Squeezed between the Gastineau Channel and Coast Mountains, Juneau offers incredible variety in close proximity. The massive Mendenhall Glacier and the immense Juneau Icefields are right here, and the vast Tongass National Forest stretches away to the northeast. Shop downtown, kayak, dogsled, raft, hike, whale watch, flightsee, or fish. The adventures are as bountiful as the daylight.
Scenic Glacier Cruising
If you’ve ever dreamed of the ice age and how our planet may have looked as it emerged from the grip of massive glaciers, then this will be a definite highlight of your RSVP cruise experience! Today, we come face-to-face with the ever-calving tidewater glaciers of Glacier Bay. The extreme topography here reveals a landscape driven by immense forces. Welcome to the collision zone between the North American and Pacific tectonic plates!
The onion domes of St. Michael's Cathedral are your first clue that Sitka was once a key Russian settlement. It was the capital of Russian America, seat of the bishop of Kamchatka, and the most important port on the West Coast for the first half of the 19th century. Catch a performance by the New Archangel Dancers, be greeted by native Tlingit people, then stand on the spot where the United States took possession of Alaska in 1867. The dramatic setting in the shadow of Mt. Edgecumbe is one of the loveliest in the Great North.
Charming Ketchikan clutches the shores of the Tongass Narrows, with many shops and houses built right out over the water. The stairways are weathered and the vibe is cheerful in the town that calls itself “The Salmon Capital of the World.” Beside the main attractions of Creek Street, the Tongass Historical Museum, Totem Bight State Park, and Saxman Village, try a flightseeing trip to Misty Fjords National Monument. These deepwater fjords were gouged out by retreating glaciers, leaving granite cliffs towering thousands of feet above the sea and countless waterfalls plunging into placid waters.
Our traditional Color T-Dance, The Big Blue, will see us dancing right into our final port of call surrounded by the azure blue waters of the Strait of Juan de Fuca! A touch of England awaits you in the capital city of British Columbia. It’s one of the oldest cities in the Pacific Northwest, first settled by the British in 1843. The city has retained a large number of historic buildings, in particular its two most famous landmarks – the British Columbia Parliament Building (finished in 1897) and the Empress Hotel (opened in 1908). Whether you’re strolling along the causeway in the Inner Harbour or visiting the famed Butchart Gardens (a brilliant tapestry of color spread across fifty blooming acres, open till 10pm), you’re sure to fall in love with this gorgeous city.
