Fantastic trip for our 50th wedding anniversary. Crew and staff great, friendly -local and knowledgeable, all with various outdoor backgrounds pertinent to our trip. Perfect size ship, experienced captain most accommodating when wildlife or scenery was notable... stopping often for our viewing and photographing pleasure. Crew helped us learn new skills, led great shore excursions, shared native lore, and provided ample opportunities for outdoor activities. Food was delightful, plated dinners with at least 3 major entrees nightly, and buffet breakfast and lunch worked well with our relaxed "schedules". Kitchen staff offered plenty of variety and great baked goodies daily. Such a delight to be so remote and 'unplugged'; we felt our interests were completely accommodated without being overwhelmed by activities. Loved how we cruised into remote wilderness areas that larger ships cannot reach including close to glacier-calving, and skiff to locations for nature walks. Weather was fabulous although we planned for anything. We are already planning another un-cruise adventure!

Remote wilderness, relaxed cruising up-close to nature
