CPT John personally greeted us at the dock. We were all treated like royalty on the "Orca Song". It was a very cold, rainy day but everyone on board was enthralled from the beginning! There weren't very many on board which really added to the value of the day. (COVID-19

I did the 6 hour cruise with my girlfriend. I had a terrible check-in experience. When I gave my name to the check-in representative, I spelled my last name slowly and loudly, because it’s an unusual last name, due to having a mask and a clear partition in the way (Covid-19).

Response from Lindsay M, Public Relations Manager at Full-Day Kenai Fjords National Park Cruise
Responded 24 Aug 2020
Dear AlaskanAsian13, We sincerely apologize for the mix-up at check in and are sorry that the misunderstanding has created a two-star experience for you. We are glad to hear that the cruise was enjoyable and filled with wildlife and glacier activity, but again do apologize for the name confusion. We absolutely do not charge $40 for the deli lunch. We hope our customer service was friendly and welcoming despite the honest mistake. We hope to have the opportunity to cruise with you again in the future.
