"This company is a first class operation from the registration process to disembarkation.  The captain really worked to get us close to whales and other animals.  He put us in the ice flows from the glacier.  The rest of the crew was equally helpful on board. They truly want to provide the customer with a memorable experience and not worry about the clock."
