Alaska Gay Cruise
Stunningly beautiful glaciers ... towering snow-capped mountains ... spectacular wildlife ... lush rainforest ... and mile after mile of pristine coastline. Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve holds such a wealth of natural wonders. You'll find endless opportunities for discovery and adventure here.
Join Aquafest Events Manager, Tom Thompson, for our seventh annual Alaska cruise on the Norwegian Pearl as we cruise the last Frontier through Alaska's Inside Passage. Aquafest is pleased to offer the lowest rates, stellar GLBT Celebrity entertainment, and fun-filled events on this exciting September cruise. The weather in Alaska is beautiful during September and there are more whale sightings during this period than any other time of the year. We hope you will join us for the BEST GLBT Alaska group event for 2010!

They are the innovators of "Friends of Dorothy" get-togethers on all of their ships and even have a Lesbian Godmother (Rose O' Donnell) of their elegant Norwegian Pearl.

They are pioneers creating the Freestyle Cruise experience and allowing guests to choose when and how they want their vacation experience to be.
