With a name of historic proportion, tting for a small expedition cruise vessel of robust industry reputation, RCGS Resolute is named after the Inuit town of Resolute, in Nunavut territory, which in turn was named after the Merchant Navy vessel, HMS Resolute by Canadian settlers. Built in 1850, the merchant Navy vessel was lost in the Arctic ice from 1854-55, when it was then discovered by the U.S. and returned to the British Royal Navy from 1856. Her lineage continues with several of her relics residing in the White House’s Oval Of ce.
