Wilderness Explorer Cruise Review
Itinerary: Northern Passages & Glacier Bay - May 2015
So sorry for the delay in responding. Jumping back into life is not easy.
The cruise exceeded all of our expectations. It was one of the most exciting and enjoyable experiences we've had in all our travels. The crew was exceptional--smart, enthusiastic, gregarious and a delight to be around. Our fellow passengers were also a remarkable group--well-traveled, friendly, and great conversationalists. Good food, well prepared and a good selection. Ship was immaculate, in very pristine shape. We enjoyed our cabinm one of the largest on the ship but still rather small.
We started in Sitka. You arranged some fishing for us and a hotel for two nights. Westmark Sitka. Ended in Juneau where we extended for a night at the Westmark Baranoff.
Animals and sea life is "seeing is believing". The list is to long to print.
We liked the informality and close up of the experience. The whole trip was so unlike the descriptions of cruises by others--too crowded, too formal, landing at ports with hundreds of others simultaneously. We have so many of our friends who have done a big ship. They need to go back and see the "real Alaska".
Should we cruise again, rest assured that Un-Cruise will be our first consideration. Thank you for everything Linda. The photos the crew took are wonderful to have in our memory book.
