Sail Date: Jul 2021
Cabin:
2bears (hopefully siblings) meeting at the shoreline before catching salmon.
So many whales. Even bubble feeding.
Kayaking in Glacier Bay
Seals and sea lions.
View from upper deck.
Skiff trip to go hiking

This trip far exceeded my expectations. I hoped to see all of the animals you hear about and we did. Bears catching salmon, okras, whales bubble net feeding, otters, sea lions and seals, eagles and puffins. Kayaking in Glacier Bay and having a front row seat of Marjorie calving. Skiff tours and bushwhacking also filling the days.

We wanted a small ship and with 36 passengers, this trip delivered. Got to know the passengers and crew. The room was clean with a king bed, private bath and plenty of storage.

Woke every morning to smell of bacon and a good selection to start the day. Meals were not the size of the big cruise lines which is apparently. Always 3 choices for dinner though I wouldn’t say the food was as good as I had hoped but the cocktails and desserts made up for that. We are now going on this same ship to Hawaii! Can’t wait!
