The Baranof Dream is tailor-made for those seeking an authentic, local Alaska experience. Owned and operated by a family with deep roots in the Alaska cruise industry, this 143-foot, shallow-draft vessel takes you deep into the region’s coves and coastal inlets, threading through the icy waters in a way that’s off-limits to larger, bulkier ships.
The Baranof Dream captivates with its spacious bow for viewing fjords and glaciers, its covered outside deck, and its relaxed cruising speed for taking in the local wilderness and wildlife. Equally remarkable, however, is its crew, which includes two expedition leaders who teach you about native Tlingit customs as well as the local flora and fauna. Together with the friendly, hospitable deckhands, these guides ensure every excursion opens a window onto Alaska’s rich cultural heritage.
The Baranof Dream lets you choose from 25 staterooms on three decks. Each cabin is decorated in an airy contemporary style and comes equipped with a large picture window, individual climate control, and a private bathroom with shower. Options range from double rooms to deluxe suites, with different combinations of twin and queen beds available.
The vessel’s common areas allow passengers to socialize as they marvel at Alaska’s stunning coastal landscape. The ship boasts observation decks at the bow and stern, as well as an upper sun deck to take in the surrounding glaciers and fjords. When it’s time to head inside, the lounge, dining room, and bar promote onboard camaraderie with their homey atmosphere and warm Alaska hospitality.
