MAGICAL SCENERY. ENDLESS ADVENTURES.
Experience the majesty of America’s 49th state in a way that’s only possible by ship. Cruise alongside a pod of orcas, watch in wonder as glaciers calve before your eyes, discover a convocation (that’s right…a convocation) of bald eagles in mighty spruce trees, take in the unspoiled beauty of the Inside Passage, and spy Alaska’s bears feasting on bountiful wild salmon.
Adventure awaits at every moment! You can sea kayak through calm waters or hike trails filled with fascinating wildlife. One thing we can guarantee is that virtually everything will take your breath away!
SAIL ONE OF OUR FAVORITE SHIPS
There’s no better ship to explore Alaska than on Holland America’s Eurodam, one of RSVP cruisers’ favorite ships. From abundant balcony staterooms to inviting entertainment venues, and from the delicious Pinnacle Grill to the ship’s world-class spa, you’ll find the perfect setting to relax in style after an active day ashore. And with her retractable pool deck roof, we’ve created an ideal place to enjoy RSVP’s legendary T-Dances and nighttime parties.
RSVP ENTERTAINMENT – BIGGER AND BETTER THAN EVER
The wonders don’t stop with the Alaskan scenery. We’re pulling out all the stops with an all-star lineup of RSVP signature entertainers along with stellar new talent. Our two-story theater hosts RSVP mainstage singers, comedians, drag performers, and Eurodam’s dazzling production shows. In the intimate Queen’s Lounge, you’ll enjoy original cabaret acts up-close. Or cozy up to a classic RSVP pianist in Billboard Onboard. Or better yet…try your luck at the friendly casino.
FRIENDLY PARTIES DESIGNED FOR YOU
30th Anniversary Alaska Cruise
For 32 years, RSVP has created memorable parties featuring the music you love to hear! Our afternoon T-Dances are favorites, with upbeat and playful party themes under the Alaskan sky.

Stay tuned for details!
GREAT FRIENDS. AMAZING VALUE.
RSVP brings together friends from all walks of life to celebrate the magical diversity of our community. There’s never been a better time to join the RSVP family than in Alaska. We’ve worked hard to keep our fares low, starting from just $899! It’s our lowest price ever for Alaska, making it easier than ever to enjoy all the entertainment, parties, and incredible friends that make RSVP great. We invite you to let RSVP show you Alaska our way – a new place where you belong.
Day 1 - August 5, 2017
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.
Day 2 - August 6, 2017
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.
Day 3 - August 7, 2017
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.
Day 4 - August 8, 2017
Scenic Cruising Glacier Bay
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!
Day 5 - August 9, 2017
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.
Day 6 - August 10, 2017
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.
Day 7 - August 11, 2017
30th Anniversary Alaska Cruise
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.
Day 8 - August 12, 2017
We return to where it all started – Washington’s most vibrant and culturally rich city. If time allows before heading home, walk the waterfront, enjoy the whimsical glass sculptures at Chihuly Garden and Glass, or simply enjoy one of Seattle’s famed parks – Washington Park Arboretum, Green Lake Park, or Volunteer Park Conservatory.
We arrive in Seattle at approximately 7 AM, and begin disembarkation shortly thereafter. We do not recommend flights before noon.
SO MUCH TO SEE AND DO
From gay-friendly and convenient Seattle, you’ll sail to Alaska’s capital city, Juneau. Beyond the mix of cosmopolitan chic and frontier ruggedness, discover one of Earth’s true wonders – Mendenhall Glacier. Whether you admire the glacier’s glory from afar, explore the ice on foot or by dogsled, or soar over the crevasses in a helicopter, we know you’ve never seen anything like it.
As we sail through Glacier Bay, the largest UNESCO-protected biosphere in the world, we’ll cruise past ten tidewater glaciers, endless snow-capped mountains, and dazzling deep fjords. It’s a great privilege to sail these protected waters as only a few ships are allowed in each year. You’ll awake the next day to the island-studded waters of Sitka, one of Alaska’s most authentically rustic towns. From its rich Russian heritage to non-stop adventure, Sitka offers plenty of choices between hiking, kayaking, whale watching, or simply taking in the town’s charm.
Our morning in Ketchikan presents the option of floatplaning through Misty Fjords, exploring the world’s largest collection of totem poles, watching the salmon run from the famed red Creek Bridge, or even snorkeling.
Finally, the picturesque city of Victoria provides the perfect ending in this “City of Gardens.” Our evening visit lets you share the vibrant entertainment and nightlife scene with friends old and new.
