Picture yourself on your first cruise exploring the inside passage of British Columbia and Alaska on a vessel that makes very little noise and even better responds to wave motion with state of the art stabilizers to keep you safe as you roam this beautiful ship. Our balcony cabin possessed all the amenities of home and our cabin steward, Julio ensured our comfort and safety in his daily cleaning and sanitizing of our cabin as well as all other areas for which he held responsibility.
As this was the maiden voyage of AQV’s Ocean Victory, the crew and staff maintained the highest levels of service and quality in all that was provided for their passengers. We were treated like family. Bertrand, the Hotel Director personally checked in on us daily to see if there was anything we needed. The chef regularly stopped by to converse with passengers to ensure all dietary needs were met. And Carlos, the Bar Steward is a gem. He’s eager to make sure your drinks are properly poured and will even hop off the ship to pick up more Aperol when needed. Additionally, we must compliment Wilbon for all his efforts to keep our group of 6 smiling and cheering as we wondered through the beautiful scenery with drinks in hand.
As this was an expedition experience we must take our hats off to the Expedition Team! We were fortunate to have naturalists, marine biologists, geologists, and zodiac/kayak guides on this cruise. Their combined efforts truly brought about tremendous opportunities to really learn about the various environments we were encountering. For this reason, we plan on taking this cruise again in reverse to better comprehend the science of this area.

Lovely balcony cabin on deck 4. Beautifully appointed, spacious enough to enjoy early morning and evening views of the vast Alaskan wilderness.
