Terrific trip! Everything exceeded our expectations, including comfort of the cabin, quality of the food, service from staff, congeniality of fellow passengers, and even the weather. Only wish it had been for two weeks.

I'm not sure it could have been better - probably the nicest, well-rounded vacation I've ever had - everything about it exceeded expectations. Being able to go up to the bridge was so informative and interesting. The crew and staff were EXCEPTIONAL!

The crew are now more friends/family/team mates with who we shared so many beautiful moments. They were the BEST!! The Wilderness Explorer not only took us safely to so many amazing places but, for a week, it became a real 'home' away from home. The cabin has everything one could wish for, it was comfortable, and clean. Eating became a celebration of food. One can truly see how much work/passion the galley staff puts onto it. We cannot think of any better experience than this.

I really appreciated the casual atmosphere on-board. The interaction with the crew made it feel more like I was on an excursion with a team as opposed to a tourist being 'processed' by an industry. Many thanks - this has really meant a lot to me.

I’ve sailed twice and it is the best way to see Alaska; a small group up close and personal with a lot of whales, seals, sea lions, sea otters, bears, glaciers, etc!

The staff on the National Geographic ship was exceptional. I prefer these cruises to the larger cruise ships. The level of service and naturalist guides was five stars, and the trip was over and above my expectations, and ExpeditionTrips assistance was excellent.

I hadn't been to Alaska for awhile and wanted to experience it in a more intimate way with guidance from naturalists. It was absolutely fantastic. I've been telling all my friends about the trip since getting back. ExpeditionTrips was very helpful in answering my questions in a timely fashion, and got my reservation paperwork done in record time. Enjoyed taking a skiff tour of an iceberg garden, seeing whales and otters, getting up close and personal to a glacier, and stalking a bear via kayak.

We were very well taken care of from the moment we were met at the hotel in Juneau until we were dropped at the airport for our return. The service was great and the naturalist guides were superb -- we really enjoyed them. The most memorable moments were coming across a pod of whales at sunset, watching Dawes glacier calve twice right in front of us, and the great people we met.

It exceeded expectations! Both the controllable (itinerary, staff, etc.) and the incidental (glacial calving, humpbacks, orcas, sea otters etc.) were better than we remembered. Kids' activity managers were superb! Mark and colleagues were incredibly inventive, responsive and patient with the children.

Every day on the National Geographic ship was memorable. With the zodiacs, we could approach wildlife within a few feet and observe their behavior unhurried. The friendly and knowledgeable naturalists taught us so much about the grizzlies, marine mammals and birds in Alaska. The services of the guides and the staff were excellent in every way.

It was an incredible week. The rooms were excellent, the food was healthy, tasty and plentiful. The crew and especially the guides and wellness coordinator were great. They bent over backwards to make our trip enjoyable. I loved the yoga on the back deck each morning. The various activities (hiking, kayaking, skiffing, etc) were available all the time and lots of fun. The Captain was extremely enthusiastic and fun and considerate. This is a trip for anyone-all age groups find things to enjoy. We had a few three generation families on our cruise and all enjoyed it.

Our trip to Alaska was simply unbelievable. People use terms like the trip of a lifetime casually, but this truly was such a trip. There simply aren’t enough superlatives to dole out to each of the crew. They were, quite simply, remarkable. I was particularly struck by how truly happy they seemed. This may sound silly, but in the hustle and bustle of Silicon Valley, I see lots of successful people, but it is rare to see people who are truly so happy. It gave me a lot to think about. I have been recommending the experience like crazy; I can’t think of anything possible that could have been done to make the trip more wonderful for us.

We were on the Wilderness Adventurer before, and loved it. We were prepared for cold and rain, and got sunny and warm. Everyone on the ship was fabulous. Crew and guests became like a group of old friends. Service was excellent. Most memorable parts were a long point-to-point kayak, the Chief Shakes rededication, and seeing bears from the kayak—the whole thing, actually.

We want to express our heart-felt appreciation to the Endeavour crew and staff for making our recent cruise the vacation of a lifetime. There were plenty of highlights: the wildlife viewing, the stunning scenery, the outings ashore and kayaking – the great weather, even! But what really made it truly special were the enthusiasm, genuine warmth, and caring attitude of the entire crew.

I wanted to see Alaska and the combination of "luxury" and "adventure" sounded perfect. The staff, scenery and service were outstanding. They crew were all wonderful...the massage therapists, the bartender, the guides, the captain, everyone was not only willing, but anxious to be helpful.

This trip was to celebrate my 60th birthday and the entire two weeks was memorable: skiff tours to the front of South Sawyer Glacier in Tracy Arm, watching the bears at Margaret River, the captain's grilled oysters on the deck. Expedition Trips has been great to work with.  As I wrote, we booked through you for the Antarctic Cruise in January and would certainly book with you again in the future.

The experience working with first Joy, then Jennifer, was fantastic. They excelled with their positive attitudes, along with creativity. They were very organized, booking everything quickly, and returned my calls immediately. I will definitely book future trips with you. The most memorable parts of the trip were the whales bubble netting and breaching!

ExpeditionTrips made the trip very positive! I was admittedly naive about what to expect. We had never been on a cruise but felt the expedition model would be appropriate for us.

The information we received from ExpeditionTrips was extremely helpful. We always felt that our needs were taken care of personally, even though we were part of a group of 14.

Everything met or exceeded my expectations on our cruise to Alaska. The weather cooperated -- sunny and warm right up until the last full day on the ship. Several guests even went swimming in Lake Eva at the end of one of our hikes. A picnic lunch was served on the top deck the afternoon we were in Glacier Bay. Gwen and I even got sunburned!

Our experience working with ExpeditionTrips was very helpful for this trip. Our Program Manager's detailed knowledge of the different small boat cruises was a very big help. She was happy to spend time answering our long list of questions. We narrowed it down to two cruise lines. In the end, it couldn't have been a better fit for what we were looking for.

This was a 50th Birthday celebration for me - we wanted to see Alaska but did not want a large cruise.  The most memorable part of this was the intimacy of the ship, the crew and the passanger. ExpeditionTrips was top notch in all communications and materials - the customer service through the course of the booking to the trip did not skip a beat.  The packet received at home prior to the trip was impressive.

My experience with ExpeditionTrips was very positive. You called me by telephone when I inquired about the trip and all documents were sent as promised. You quickly fixed an issue with the bed arrangement too, I appreciate that very much. The trip met all of our expectations. We really wanted to see remote Alaska and this was the best way we could find. The crew was absolutely excellent. I really liked the way the crew and staff remembered and called us by our names - that really made us feel welcome. Also, we really were treated as if we were at home.

Just finished a week long cruise on the Wilderness Adventurer from Ketchikan to Juneau with 15 of my friends and family. Not only did the incredible staff put up with our group but they embraced us with open arms. Thank you does not cover our appreciation to this incredible company and group of people.
