Inner Seas Wilderness Discoverer---AWESOME!!

Sail Date: July 2011
Destination: Alaska
Embarkation: Juneau

I had the wonderful opportunity of cruising on the Wilderness Discoverer in July 2011, with my husband and 22 year old very athletic son. In one word: AWESOME

We were able to participate in various levels of activities every day. We opted for the long day hikes and kayaking experiences. Care was taken to provide fairness in signing up for the activities one chose. The bottom line, there were no bad choices to make, as the inner passage is so beautiful, we never once wished we were doing anything other than what each moment awarded us.

Unfortunately, there was a couple in their 30's on the cruise who appeared to some passengers to perhaps be in it for the free ride. On day one, they made it well known to fellow passengers that one of them was a lawyer, and that there were breaches in the contract. It appeared as though nothing would please them. They were travelling around the world, and one could not help but wonder if they didn't find contractual breaches More throughout their world tour.

It is a shame, as they totally missed the boat on this one. To have not taken in the beauty and awe of Alaska's inner passage, and to not have appreciated all the crew's enthusiasm, friendliness, and help is a shame.

It is their loss. Kudos to the captain for not dropping them off in the wilderness.

Don't let one review keep you from the AWESOME adventure on Inner Seas Discoveries. My family would do it again in a heartbeat.

There is something for everyone of all ages and activity levels. Don't miss it! Less

Cabin review: Wilderness Discoverer 317

We had three adults in a triple cabin. It was very COZY.... but do-able. We put the two twins together, and the pull-down berth was mostly over the floor space. It was small, but we had the time of our lives. Our cabin was only used for sleeping, bathing, and changing. You wouldn't want to spend free time in the cabin, as there was too much to see outside. But, if you are going to do a triple, be prepared for some family coziness and laughs :)
