Alaska has been on my bucket list for a long time. Even though SE Alaska is only a fraction of a fraction of Alaska, I have great hope for this world as long as Alaska survives. Our trip was educational, interesting, and fun. As a solo traveler, I felt comfortable and yet challenged daily. Wish I could close my eyes and begin all over again! Judith Maxwell Barrett


In-depth look at SE Alaska native tribes. Stunning views and contact with glaciers and glacial geology.


Fantastic trip! Loved the small ship experience of the Baronof Dream. We were able to get up close and personal with SE Alaska. Even got to touch an iceberg. Our Road Scholar manager, Kate Winslow, was so knowledgeable and helpful. The captain and crew were great. To have a National Park Ranger and a cultural guide on board while in Glacier Bay was an exceptional addition. Forego the big ships who only come into port to shop. This trip is the real deal! Combines culture and magnificent vistas. Only drawback was that half of the passengers were not Road Scholars, so it got a little confusing at times. Couldn't use whispers in several situations.


Learn about the real Alaska: The people, the animals, the terrain. So much more than you ever imagined. The real last frontier and beauty that will leave you breathless.


If all you want is nature, this may not be the best program for you. If, like us, you like a mix of nature, history, and culture, you should like this program very much. We liked the size of the ship and group, the relatively close views of wildlife and glaciers, and the exposure to Native Alaskans' traditional and contemporary culture and art.


The highlight of the trip was the glaciers!!! We heard their "white thunder" and saw some calving. One in particular had this intense blue color. The small ship allowed us to interact with both our fellow passengers and the crew. A really great experience!


This was a wonderful trip. The small ship experience allowed us to dodge ice flows to get up close and personal with several glaciers for a front row seat to calving. The Tongass National Forest has an other world appearance - bring your hiking poles. Our late June trip provided viewing of brown and black bears, mountain goats, sea otters, sea lions, harbor seals, humpback whales, bald eagles, rufus hummingbirds, puffins and countless other birds.
