National Geographic Explorer Cruise Review by rcapozza
- Sail Date: September 2017
- Destination: Canada & New England
The cruise ship Explorer is very nice and the cabin was also very nice (209). What wasn't special was the food and the almost uninterested naturalists and their presentations. The learning could be much more interesting. Jim Richardson the cruise photographer is an awesome photographer but he also was more interested in taking his own photos instead of interacting with the guests. His photo presentation on the last night; however, was amazing. The cruise expedition Director often gave confusing complex information. The Captain spent way too much time talking and too much time praising a whole lot of cruise employees. Another issue was the guest makeup. The guest makeup of this cruise group seemed to be a lot older than previous trips. There were several people who could barely walk and should not have been on the trip because they made the pace frustrating. Many guests complained about how they impacted the trip.
We loved our earlier cruises and tell all our friends about Nat Geo/Lindlad but this trip gets minimal kudos from us as I felt it did not offer much value for the expense.
