This was my first trip to Alaska and also my first cruise ever. It was the most fantastic trip anyone could ever take. Learning the history of Alaska from true natives, the whale watching trip, seeing glaciers up close and bears in their natural habitat, Petersburg and Kake with the dancers and seeing places and sights the big cruise ships cannot get close to. The room, the food (which by the way was awesome!), the day trips and especially the staff were fantastic! From the minute we landed at Sitka until we left, every detail was taken care of. The staff, KooHook, with his knowledge and sense of humor, Emily with her knowledge and friendliness, Leonard, being the CEO and still helping out with daily chores and the servers and chefs to the Captain! I cannot say enough to express the warmth and especially the genuineness of the crew. I have recommended this trip and cruise line to everyone. Thank you all for such a great time!!!

Very good food, and just the right portions.

Cabin was clean, fresh. Just a little unsure about the fact that the doors did not lock, especially when docked.

Lots of fun and not a problem when a program was presented and whales or sea otters showed up, just look, have fun and enjoy.

None. All were the right length of time and enjoyable. The history of the land is fascinating.

Beautiful, enjoyable, do not regret one minute. Lucky enough to see a whale breach, 1/4 mile from a glacier calving and experience the waves from it, rather scary but a fantastic experience. The true beauty of Alaska seen from a small boat cruise was so worth it! And to learn some of the history and living conditions of this beautiful state was eye opening. Just cannot say enough about the entire experience. Thank you.
