Amazing memories

Review for a Alaska Cruise on Baranof Dream

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

My sister and I cruised the Inside Passage Sojourn from Sitka to Ketchikan Aug 27-Sep 4 2023. We each booked a room to ourselves using a single supplement waiver. All cabins have a window and view. I have had little interest in a large traditional cruise, and this trip exceeded my expectations. I appreciated the small capacity, the intimate itinerary reaching into small places for culture, ...

The good: animals, glaciers, crew, naturalist. The very bad: the ship in poor condition, the food was bad. Sorry it took me so long to post this. I booked this through Orbridge travel & the Notre Dame travel alumni. ND and Orbridge immediately stepped up when I reported the deplorable conditions to them once home. I really appreciated Orbridge "making things right" with me. Anyways, the cruise ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 80s

The Baranof Dream is anything but a dream. This ship is 38 years old and its maximum speed is 10 mph. The engines are loud and shake the ship. There are no amenities. There is no cell or internet wifi except in the large ports. There is nothing to do for endless boring days while big cruise ships pass us by going in the same direction. They do not provide any board games or any other activities ...

the "non-adventure" adventure cruise

Our cruise actually departed from Sitka. If you are seeking activity and/or adventure, do not book the Last Frontier Adventure with Alaskan Dream Cruises. I am writing this review on behalf of my group of 6, but there were others on our 44 passenger cruise that felt the same way. For starters, the company describes this cruise as designed for "guests seeking a higher level of activity". We were ...

Amazing scenery, excellent crew

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

I chose Baranof Dream cruises after some serious Google searching. As I’d never been to Alaska, or on a cruise/ship, I knew I wanted something small, casual, and laid back vs a shopping mall on a boat. I went on this trip solo, but never was alone as the staff and guests made me feel right at home from Day One. Pros: The excellent crew - everyone was amazing. Aside from the normal duties, ...

Great crew, below average boat and poor COVID protocols

The crew was hard working and friendly. Unfortunately, the Orbridge "Expedition Leader" was a very poor leader--he had some knowledge, but clearly was 'mailing it in.' He cared little for the passengers and made no attempt to get to know anyone's name or anything about the passengers. Often he was sarcastic in answers to questions to which he did not know the answer. The boat was nice, but the ...

We booked a small ship cruise to the Alaska inner passage thinking this would be a more intimate experience. We expected to pay more than the big cruise ship but we thought it would be worth it. After careful consideration we booked with Alaskan Dream Cruises. We have done about 5 small ship cruises so we had some expectations. Their website and discussion with the reservation desk made it ...

My significant other and I, both 70, spent a week on the Alaskan Dream August 29-September 5. The trip far exceeded our expectations, which were high, as we'd been to Alaska before with UnCruise Adventures. The whole point was to see wildlife and scenery; it was a bonus that the 25 fellow passengers were great. One day, we spent two hours watching black bears feed on spawning salmon in a river in ...

You are not going to get a better Southeast Alaska Wilderness Cruise, if you are looking for wildlife and the chance to get close to nature, period. Plus you will get to visit small Alaskan communities unvisited by larger cruise ships. I love cruising and have enjoyed Alaska cruises on bigger ships, as well as cruises in other places in the world. But I have lived in Southeast Alaska for 40 ...
