Two of us traveled at the end of June, from Sitka to Juneau. There were approximately 70 people on board. We liked a lot of the activities (such as kayaking, hiking, skiff rides, shore walks, etc.), ecological and scientific presentations in the evening. The animals, birds and nature seen on the trip were noteworthy. Food was ok but usually rather bland. Room was small and compact, but ok. The main reason for the rating is that we got very sick towards the end of the trip, as did a number of other passengers and staff. When contacted, the cruise company just gave us the "standard" response letter, basically saying all passengers should continually wash their hands to avoid infection and taking no responsibility for any problems. A small ship such as this allows more exploration of coves and inlets, but you do pay a lot for the experience, which should not be marred by illness.

OK trip marred by gastrointestinal illnesses
