2015 Alaska Liseron Review

Life aboard an Alaska small ship cruise & a review of the private charter

2015 Alaska Liseron Review

This is the best part of our job at Expedition Broker. Yes, the fly fishing, skiing and exploring new adventures are all pretty darn fun too. But, hearing from clients who are brimming with enthusiasm fresh from their trip to Alaska really is the finest.

We put together a private charter of MV Liseron for a family celebration of 20 travelers, and here is what they had to say:

I wanted tell you in full detail how much we enjoyed our trip! It was fabulous from start to finish. I cannot thank you both enough for doing such a fabulous job coordinating everything. The Liseron and crew were amazing. From the moment they greeted us at our hotel in Sitka we knew we were in remarkable hands. Truly a wonderful group of people on that boat. The boat itself was gorgeous and so well appointed. We lacked for nothing. It was the perfect size for our group and everyone took full advantage of everything the boat and crew had to offer. The weather held out for us so everyday was full of activity. It was a perfect way to spend a week with people who have different interests and different fitness levels. All were able to participate and enjoy.

The celebration dinner we had for my mom was perfect. The staff went above and beyond to make it special and welcomed our design help! Food for the week was great. Always hot and on time and accommodating to anyones needs. We loved the bar and snack availability!

I forgot to mention all of the wildlife viewing we saw! Incredible whales breaching and feeding, some orcas, deer, 2 bear sightings and lots of seals and pups at the Dawes glacier with the Liseron.

As you can gather, it was the trip of a lifetime. Everyone had the best time. It was perfect for all ages. Thank you again for all your organizing & planning!  ~Kate Parker

It is not too early to consider an Alaska small ship cruise for 2016! In fact the Liseron is already at 75% capacity for next year. Please contact us to discuss either private charters or individual staterooms at any time!
