Sail Date: Aug 2023

This was our first cruise and we had a fantastic time on this smaller ship.

The ship was easy to navigate in my husbands manual wheelchair, with issues only happening a handful of times. I would suggest reservations for non-buffet restaurants for wheelchair users due to the limited space between the tables and chairs in most dining rooms. The downside to the dining rooms will be that you will only be able to easily access a table on the outside aisles, never by a window, due to table/chair configurations.

Our other issues were related to elevator use, which is more on other cruisers not willing to give priority to mobility impaired users. One suggestion would be to add signs outside the elevators to give mobility impaired passengers elevator priority.

Cabin Review

Our cabin was fantastic and the bathroom allowed for full wheelchair turns.

Port Reviews

Hubbard Glacier

I wish we had more time and could get closer to the glacier but overall it was a great experience.

We had an inside cabin so we spent time on the outside walking track during the glacier sailing day.

Icy Strait

This was our favorite port! Whale watching was unreal and the zip line is a must do!


We only had 4 hours at this port. We booked the Mt Roberts tram which was indicated as a wheelchair accessible excursion. The only accessible part of this excursion is the gift shop and one platform. The trails and cafe are not accessible at all.
