Nature didn't disappoint, but Lindblad did
"You could go on a cheaper cruise on a megaboat, see the same scenery and probably get similar wildlife experiences by choosing good shore excursions.For what we were paying for the cruise, Lindblad should be able to pay their staff a good wage...."Read More

We did the Inside Passage trip. We chose this trip mainly because of Glacier Bay and this one location made the whole trip worth it. Overall, the scenery and wildlife on this trip cannot be beat. However, I was very disappointed in the organization and planning of this trip. For as expensive as this trip is, I do believe that the customers deserve more. The trip started in Sitka. The transport ...

We had previously sailed with Lindblad in the Galapagos Islands with our granddaughters and had a wonderful experience. They wanted to go on another expedition, so we chose Lindblad again, this time to Alaska. The trip was great. Our granddaughters particularly enjoyed the Explorers program and the naturalist, Jared, who ran the program. The staff and naturalists on board accommodated us ...

My wife and I in our 70s, moderately fit, had a terrific time on this new ship. This adventure expedition fully met my expectations from advertising and reviews. Venture was nearly brand new and well designed for conveniently and safely getting us off the ship in zodiacs and small groups nearly every day. The food was tasty and plentiful, always with healthy options. Hotel service was ...

We were a little last-minute signing up for this trip but our expedition specialist facilitated everything so smoothly, we just packed and took off. So many passengers opted to take an earlier flight than the recommended flight to Sitka that Nat Geo scrambled and the expedition director met us at the airport with a special bus and tours - that was an impressive start! My husband and I had ...

This was our first cruise and first Lindblad expedition. Our Alaska Inside Passage trip was from Sitka to Juno and was overall an amazing experience. The staff are very accommodating and extremely well-trained. I can't imagine getting better service. They make you feel like you are at home on the Venture. The naturalists are all amazing people, extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. You will ...

Each day was an adventure to experience the culture, wildlife and nature of the area. The naturalists and expedition guides were extremely knowledgeable and gifted teachers. The day was packed with activities. The ship was comfortable, staff could not have been better and the food was so tasty. The morning stretch yoga was the perfect way to start the day. Especially enjoyed our Yale ...
