The previous reviewer has done a very comprehensive summing up of a cruise on Alaskan Dream so I would just like to reiterate the main points. The ship is lovely and very intimate with no more than 40 passengers (we had 38). The Itinerary is comprehensive (we did the South East Explorer trip)and we visited many places that the large cruise ships cannot get to. One of the best was Rudyerd Bay in Misty Fjords. What a pleasure it was to be able to go deep into the inlet without the distraction of a massive boat in the vicinity.
The food was fantastic, with everyone able to have exactly what they wanted even if it was a mix and match from the menu items that was not intended by the amazing cook. The cabin was comfortable; having said that we had the most expensive cabin, called a Vista Suite, which was not as large as the Owners Cabin but which faced forward with nice armchairs.
Best of all was the crew, who were, without exception, wonderful. Captain Eric was fantastic, caring and so calming with a wonderful voice. He made sure we saw everything we possibly could and hung around with the engines cut for ages when we were surrounded by whales in Frederick Sound.
This is not a cheap cruise but would I have swapped it for some of the massive cruise ships we encountered en route? Not a chance! We got to know all the other passengers and the crew, which made it feel like we were on a family cruise. We saw some terrific scenery, wildlife and cultural gems. If you can afford it then do it.
Good size cabin with sufficient storage space. Loved being able to face the armchairs forward and watching the scenery go by when we were not on deck.
