Sensory overload with the Wilderness - Eastern Inner Reaches
We had been in Backcountry Denali for a week and arrived in Juneau to board the Wilderness. Our luggage was stowed on board by staff, we embarked meeting the captain and staff as we were shown to our rooms. Welcome cocktails, safety practice completed and supper.
Meals were served at specified times, breakfast and lunch buffet and dinner plated and served. Dinner had 3 entree choices which you made during the day. Evening social hour provided snacks and a special drink. The bar was complete and the bartender well trained and personable. The chef and his staff were amazing. From Lamb chops, duck, smoked trout, crab, and various other beef and More fish selections, we were amazed at every meal.
Morning and afternoon activities were scheduled the day prior, as we motored in the inner reaches. Kayaking alone or guided, hiking in the Tongass forest or to glaciers, strolling the shores, touring in the sciffs, bushwhacking, paddle boarding, morning yoga, snorkeling, polar plunge - always led by experts so the experience was complete. All equipment was provided on the boat.
There was a library in the public area, trivia contests in the evening, films, and time to get to know your traveling companions.
We disembarked in Ketchikan, our luggage was taken to a hotel for us, we checked in to confirm our flight times, were provided with beverages and snacks, and we had the day to explore. Upon return to the hotel, our luggage was transported to the airport and we were checked in and motored also.
This trip was all we had hoped for and more. It is for active explorers who want to get out and see. Less
Twin beds allowed for better movement in the cabin. Cabin was adequate and daily attention by staff was appreciated. Clean, soaps and shampoos and hair dyrer provided made packing much easier. In-room intercom for announcements, TV for video and underwater cabin excellent
