The Chichagof Dream offers five comfortable cabin types, each with a private bathroom, complimentary toiletries, a large wardrobe, and a window or porthole. Each small ship cruise usually has a maximum of 78 guests, though some cabins can sleep an extra one or two guests. The vessel was renovated in 2015, having been built in 1984. There are large outdoor viewing areas, including a sun deck and a lovely lounge with large windows that provide expansive views. Delicious and well-presented Western food, with vegetarian-friendly options, is served in the spacious dining room. There’s plenty of space for guests of all ages to wander and stretch their legs. Kayaks are available for active adventures on the water, and you can relax in the onboard salt cave at the end of a fun-filled day.    

The Chichagof Dream sails from Sitka to Juneau or Juneau to Sitka (depending on the itinerary), taking in many of Alaska’s stunning sights. As well as admiring gorgeous landscapes, your cruise lets you observe interesting, big, and small wildlife from close quarters. The Chichagof Dream specializes in family cruises. A trained youth leader accompanies guests, providing special activities and presentations for younger passengers (over 7).  As a family, you can spend seven nights soaking up the sights and sounds of Alaska. You can visit the Alaska Raptor Center, Fortress of the Bear Rescue Center, Sitka Sound Science Center, and Sheldon Jackson Museum in Sitka. It’s then onto Saginaw Bay for varied activities before whale-watching at Frederick Sound and visiting the Scandinavian-like town of Petersburg. Other highlights include the glaciers at Tracy Arm Fjord and Glacier Bay National Park and a dog-sledding demonstration and tour in Juneau. There’s certainly enough variety to keep all members of the family happy!

The friendly and experienced crew members are waiting to welcome you and your kids aboard the Chichagof Dream, ready for your amazing family holiday together. Give everyone something to get excited about and look forward to and book online to secure your cabins and preferred dates.
