I chose this cruise because of the small size of the ship, the opportunity to visit remote areas and also because the focus was on experiencing Alaska directly and personally. We stopped at many interesting locations such as Kake and Petersburg and were able to go ashore. We were able to hike and explore the shoreline at Taku and in Glacier Park.
Every night featured a presentation by one of the naturalists aboard or other informational meeting. The food was great; chef was very accommodating for special gluten and dairy free diets.
The crew was exceptional, they all went out of their way to make all of the passengers comfortable and to maximize our experience.
