After investigating many options, this cruise fitted our needs and expectations. The telephone conversations with agents verified that we would be physically able to participate with the varied activities. Their enthusiasm and willingness to help made the decision easy.
I also had help from a friend in Alaska who recommended Lindblad Expeditions.
Our trip was all I expected and more. There was not a day that was not eventful. Watching the whales and seeing the bubble netting was beyond words. Our upclose viewing of the glaciers and ice floe was also a highlight. The 'cocoa boat' was very appreciated.
The guides were so knowledgable but also fun. For the most part, they knew when to allow time to appreciate the quiet and allow for appreciation of the environment. Evening lectures were an added bonus.
The staff was always cordial and there to help when needed. Food was well prepared and choices given. Dining with fellow travelers and sharing day's experiences was fun and educational. Good food, good wine and good conversation abounded.
I will highly recommend this trip to everyone and would hope to go again. Thank you for giving me all and more than I expected.
Small but efficient and comfortable. More storage space than expected.
A delightful town with a wonderful bookstore.
A beautiful walk and viewing of a whale skeleton. Flowers and vegetation throughout our journeys were outstanding.
