Review of MV Liseron
MV Liseron and the fleetmate MV Mist Cove are the perfect ships for an Alaskan fishing charter, wilderness discovery adventure or family vacation. Ship's owner The Boat Company has spent more than 35 years cruising Alaska. The line offers small ship cruise tours carrying just 20-24 passengers. This provides a more intimate setting, higher degree of personal attention and greater freedom to go “off-itinerary”.
The small Liseron cruise ship was built in 1952 in Tacoma WA (USA). The vessel was later sold to France as a minesweeper. It was acquired and restored by The Boat Company in 1989. The ship accommodates only 20 passengers. The boat features a comfortable main salon (common room), cozy entertainment center, open bar for beer, wine, premium liquors and non-alcoholic drinks, enclosed observation lounge and library.
All meals and snacks are prepared fresh by the onboard chef and are included in fare. The company provides trained naturalist guides, entertaining and educational presentations, as well as hiking, beachcombing, nature walks, picnics, kayaking, fishing and wildlife viewing (binoculars are at hand in every room).
MV Liseron has 10 staterooms (6 on the main deck, 4 on the upper “skiff” deck), all with queen sized bed and twin upper bunk. There are temperature controls in each stateroom, roomy built-in wardrobe, dresser and several drawers, as well as a private bath with sink, hairdryer, toilet and stall shower. The screened picture-frame windows may be opened.
