In late June of 2015 we took our grandson, nearly 11, on an intergenerational trip. There were over 40 passengers plus the crew. It wasn't luxury - our small room had a double bed, a single bed, a sink and a separate combined toilet and shower. But the beds were comfortable and we succeeded in unpacking everything and getting along well on the trip. Since the days were very long - the sun set around 11 pm - we needed and had good light protection in front of the large window in our room. We got on the ship by transferring at sea from a catamaran. Everyone made it with no problems.
The cooks did a great job and all the meals were excellent with reasonable choices for those who weren't fond of fish.
The trip was very educational and included stops at three different tribal villages where we learned about customs and, for two of the tribes, dances. All our stops were both educational and interesting. The day at Hobart Bay, exclusive to Allen Marine who owns and operates Admiralty Dream, was outstanding. Not only was it a beautiful spot, but the four different activities were excellent.
The trip down Tracy Arm was both spectacular and great for taking pictures. The captain was able to get us quite close to South Sawyer Glacier and everyone enjoyed this opportunity.
The stop at Orca Point Lodge was a highlight. The meal of unlimited fresh crab legs was outstanding. The morning in Juneau was just OK, partly because of rain, but seeing the Mendenhall Glacier in the afternoon without rain was excellent.
We ended in Sitka on a beautiful day and we were able to see tourists sights.
The whole trip was great and the Admiralty Dream was important in making this possible.
The cabin was just large enough to accommodate the three of us, but it served us well. We slept well and shared the facilities well and had enough room to unpack. We were happy with our room.
