Admiralty Dream, Alaska


Constructed in 1980 and renovated in 2012, the Admiralty Dream has 27 cabins and can accommodate up to 58 guests. Each cabin is fitted with a private bathroom, complete with complimentary toiletries, along with a wardrobe, and a window for watching the wondrous scenes unfold as you leisurely cruise around Alaska. See the same views as the captain from the front-facing lounge and from the bow viewing area, which is located directly under the bridge. Enjoy a sociable drink at the well-stocked bar, borrow a book from the library, chat with other passengers over your tasty meals in the well-appointed dining room, and relax on the sun deck. Kayaks are carried on board.   

Transfers are included to reach the Admiralty Dream from the airport or a local hotel, ready to start your Alaskan cruising adventure in Sitka. The eight-day cruise finishes in Juneau, or you can take the trip in the opposite direction. Visit a native village and learn more about the Tlingit people, experience the Scandinavian-like atmosphere in the quaint fishing town Mitkof Island, and enjoy splendid scenery and captivating wildlife in Frederick Sound, Tracy Arm, and Glacier Bay National Park. From awe-inspiring glaciers to deep fjords and sparkling waterfalls, from humpback whales and seals to sea lions, bears, and plentiful birds, and from kayaking and hiking to exploring in small vessels that are designed to navigate shallow waters, there is so much to see and do!

Enjoy a warm welcome aboard the Admiralty Dream, and have a fantastic holiday as the friendly and professional crew members help you to have a journey to remember. Avoid disappointment and book your trip to secure your preferred dates; booking can be made online or by calling us.

A wonderful experience which met all my expectations the crew and staff were exceptional.

The natural beauty and magnificence of Tracy Arm & South Sawyer Glacier. Visiting Glacier Bay and some of the sites of John Muir's Alaskan trip and putting the distances and challenges he undertook into perspective. Enjoying the company of like minded travellers on a delightfully small but sturdy vessel.
