Wilderness Discoverer Cruise Review by elaine3Southport

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2012
  • Destination: Alaska

We have travelled extensively as a family and wanted to see Alaska, but in an active setting where we could hike and interact with nature. We did not want to sit and eat, get formally dressed for dinner, but we wanted excellent, healthy food options with appropriate portions. The trip was arranged through Margret Propper multi-year Travel and Leisure award winning cruise travel agent. All of the above wishes were satisfied. Additionally, pretty all-inclusive, enthusiastic and knowledgable guides, excellent crew on the boat. By the way, we travelled on Wildeness Explorer, which is not an option above.

We cruised through Glacier National Park, picking up Andrew, the National Service Park Ranger for a couple of days. He was superb and gave an excellent presentation about himeself and the mission of the Glacier Park.

We had yoga, lots of activities including snorkeling in a wet suit. Pictures and experiences were stupendous. ALso great was the fact that the passengers on our cruise included individuals with similar objectives ie those who wished to do so could relax, but the activities were available for those who wanted them. We got an experience that was tailored to our needs including AM yoga that started with 1/2 hour session that extended to full hour at the end.

Fully professional group. Have, in fact, put a deposit for another cruise with this line without planning to do so as I am so impressed by this company.

Cabin Review

We had 2 types of cabins. One with double bed for my husband and I and one with twin beds for our 2 adult children. Both were excellent wrt room size. The rooms and facilities were compact, included most of what was needed. Maybe have some more electrical outlets.
