  1. My wife and I got back from a Baja whale cruise with Lindblad in February. · The purpose of the cruise is gray whales, gray whales, and then more gray whales. · You get gray whales, gray whales and more gray whales. Oh, and some visits to local, undeveloped islands to look at flora and fauna. · On the Zodiacs, or the local Pangas, while out whale watching you might see 5 whales blowing, spy hopping, or breaching AT THE SAME TIME. They estimate there might be 250-300 in the areas where you are watching. · No promises,

Went is a day early - ALWAYS!!!
  5. The cruise was from Tokyo to Vancouver, 23 days. We had a Standard Veranda cabin which was okay. Next time, and there will be a next time, we’ll probably try the next size up which is a Penthouse Veranda. A few more square feet would have nice, but not essential. The ship is new and was spotless. The interior design is very Scandinavian, clean lines with lots of very light-colored wood panels, white, and very sharp and crisp.
