Sail Date: Jun 2017
Cabin:

We decided to take Lindblad/National Geographic to the arctic because we had gone on a Lindblad cruise to Baja two years ago and loved it - But this was even better.

We had one of the least desirable cabins (we booked late) but it was still more than adequate. The ship's public spaces are surprisingly commodious; lots of empty places to sit if you wanted to be alone. Very attractively designed. The food was ridiculous it was so good. Actually, a bit "much" sometimes.

Everything was brilliantly organized and worked like clockwork. And the entire staff was so good humored and helpful.

Cabin Review

Cabin cheapest

quite adequate; we booked late and had almost no choice at that point. But it was not a problem. Only a porthole, not a window. Bathroom very comfortable. Was close to the elevator which was very convenient.
