We chose this trip because we always wanted to see the Channel Islands as they are a National Park. This cruise was a great way to see several of the islands. ( Just to let you know, you need to add Channel Islands to your list of choices for where did I go). I like the way they are several choices for your daily excursions, hard, moderate, and easy. I did think the fall was a barren time of year to visit, spring may have more flowers, making the hiking more interesting . Staff was excellent which is why we enjoy traveling with National Geographic! Everyone was very helpful, we made some wonderful friends. The entertainment was informative talks from the staff which we enjoyed. Loved the cocktail parties to relax and chat, and especially to get out of our small, and unfortunately sad room. I would go with National Geographic again, they are a great team! Read Less

The opportunity to see Alaska's natural beauty and wildlife up close is what distinguishes Lindblad/Nat Geo cruises from all others. The naturalists, with their extensive knowledge about Alaskan fauna, flora, and wildlife, as well as the guest speakers that were invited to speak, made the cruise all the more meaningful in so many ways. Having a Nat Geo certified photographer on board was a bonus as he not only provided group instruction but was willing to work with guests one-on-one while on board or tramping through the beautiful Alaskan landscape. Lindblad/Nat Geo provided a delightful tour of Sitka prior to the time we boarded the Sea Lion. When we stepped aboard the ship we were welcomed by the ship's Captain, given a packet with our name tags. The cabin was small but both the quality and quantity of storage space made it very easy to move around the cabin. The ship, which accommodated 60 passengers, was compact and clean. The dining room and lounge, located on the first deck, were easy to access and very welcoming. The food was delicious - offering at least three options for every taste. This worked out extremely well for those following a vegan/vegetarian lifestyle. The service was very good, cabins were made up daily. Staff members were very personable and willing to go the extra mile when it came to helping passengers. Safety first - so the Captain held a safety drill the first evening and passenger's life vests were inspected each time we left the ship in a DIB. Shore excursions in the DIB, with a naturalist, was what made this trip, above all others, so remarkable - you were experiencing nature as it unfolded. Disembarkation at Juneau went very smoothly. We had an opportunity to venture up the the mountain via tram to the vistas below as well as visit Alaska's museum. I was sad to leave the Sea Lion. I will definitely plan another Lindblad/NatGeo cruise in the near future. Read Less

We heard nothing but great reviews from people we know who have cruised with Linblad National Geographic. Now we will add to them! We found the Sea Lion ship just the right size (60 guests) with plenty of space to watch for wildlife outside, relax in the lounge with a beverage, edit photos and dine among new friends. Our cabin was perfectly comfortable. The dining experience was surprisingly good with plenty of options. Snacks were available and hot drinks too. The naturalists are superb. They are the highlight of the trip. Absolutely wonderful in all regards. Extremely knowledgable, personable and great at answering questions. They did a good job assessing the physical abilities of guests and adjusted activities accordingly. We had 20 children on board and observed that staff tailored programs to their energy and interests. All of the staff members are pleasant and accommodation. Our Expedition Leader, Cindy, was outstanding! We would go anywhere with her! We enjoyed the guest speakers and educational talks by the staff. Excursions to the Raptor Center and museums were very nice. We would liked more time to absorb these special places. We look forward to our next adventure with Linblad Nat Geo. While it is tempting to return to Alaska, we have heard wonderful things about other trips. Read Less
