Great trip and worth doing. Ship was great, very new and smart small cabins. Food excellent. Nature expert who gave talk after dinner was superb - funny and very informative. Only downside you should be aware of - the cruise element is quite small as the Sound is not long, so don't think you are cruising for hours! One tip - go on the tender or kayak excursions from the ship rather than staying on board - there is nothing to do while you wait 2 hours for boats to return, and you get eaten by sandflies!!
