We wanted to view fall colors from a high quality small ship. Overall t was a good cruise, but it could have been much better. The reservation process was very poor since we were led to believe there were few cabins remaining when we booked only to find out the ship was only 2/3 full. Others experienced the same reservation process.
The food was very good and the restaurant staff were very good and very accommodating.
The cruise directors were very inexperienced. The cruise director was next headed for Seattle for a cruise and she admitted she had known knowledge about the area. Not very ,professional. The tours were average at best. Some tours were held using school busses (not what you expect from a high end cruise).
We wanted a better cabin at time of booking and were told none were available. We made it known we wanted to upgrade I'd possible. Found out later that others booked after us and got better cabins.
