Wilderness Discoverer Cruise Review by quinnc

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2014
  • Destination: Alaska

We just returned from a 7 night cruise on the Wilderness Discoverer. Words cannon describe our wonderful experience. The accomodations were perfect. The food outrageously delicious. The crew was wonderful in every way possible. If you want to see Alaska -- this cruise is the best way to do it. You hit the towns the big cruise ships go to (Juneau, Wrangell, Kechikan) -- but more importantly you see the "real" Alaska -- bears, harbor seals, bald eagles, whales, Northern Lights (we saw at night on our cruise -- the captain made an annoucement about 11pm for anyone wanting to see it), and so much more. We were able to go where the large cruise ships cannot -- into the inner coves and passage ways. I was blown away by the talent and knowledge of our expedition leaders. We were also impressed by the way safety is woven into everything on board. When we disembarked at the end we waved goodbye to the crew (they knew everyone by name!!). That was the best vacation we ever had!!! Can't wait to plan the next Un-cruise adventure.

Cabin Review

Cabin dont remember 307

There were only two of us in a cabin able to accomdate three. It was very well laid out and excellent use of space. The cabin was mid ship with outside access to the deck. The cabin service made beds and cleaned up each morning. Perfect for us.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Many places to visit (recommend Mendenhall Glacier, Roberts Mountain, Salmon Hatchery and Red Dog Saloon). Many jewlery and t-shirt stores for shopping!!


We only had about 6 hours in town -- shopping great. Not too many places to eat. If you are looking for native artwork there are many stores. Must see the "red light district"!!!
