What a truely unique expereince for our diverse group of ages and abil

Sail Date: August 2013
Destination: Alaska
Embarkation: Ketchikan

This cruise was to be my daughter and my last big trip together before she graduates from High School. We had some very high expectations and all were met and exceeded on this trip.  We traveled with a group of 12 Girl Scouts and parents. It took us all 2 years to earn the money so our expectations were very high. This trip has something for everyone the high energy girls, the adults and one member who suffers from a chronic arthritic condition. The activities were diverse enough that everyone found something to do all day long every day.

Can't say enough about the Naturalists on the ship, they really knew all about the local flora and fauna as well as sea life. The girls learned so much by being immersed in the wilderness, going on kayak adventures, hiking a to a muskeg, visiting a Tlingit Village, cave exploring, seeing Dawes glacier calving and seeing all the wildlife up close was beyond our expectations. We especially liked being tucked away in a cove or up a river More and not seeing anyone else but those on the ship.

The food was excellent the cabins were perfect for our needs as we only slept in them, we were always away on adventure, outside viewing nature or enjoying time with all the guests from around the world. I can't say enough about our trip other than when you can get teen girls on a trip with no cell service and no internet for most of the week and no one complains you are doing something right! Less
