We wanted to experience Alaska but on a small boat. So much better than a big boat - a more diverse range of ports, a chance to meet everyone on board, the ability to stop and chase the wildlife rather than sticking to a strict time schedule. We were very impressed with the quality of the boat, the decor and the size of our stateroom The staff were incredibly friendly, warm and helpful The food was excellent and there was always plenty of alchohol, including free cocktail hour every evening The other travellers were also very friendly. Some were in groups, but most came as a couple and were very happy to mix. There were also a few singles, who mixed in well. Being in our early 50s, we were one of the younger couples, but that didn't actually matter at all. We had a historian on board for the whole trip, who made it incredibly interesting - he was fabulous. Quite a few people specifically book trips based on when Todd (Weber) will be on board. Not a cruise for kids.

Exceeded my expectations
