We have been to Alaska twice before on big ship cruises and thought a small boat cruise would be a way to see Alaska in a different way. It was awful! By the third day boredom was setting in and by the fourth day, we had come to realize ... Read more

Our two week trip to Hawaii was twenty years in the making and my wife and I considered all our travel options very carefully. We booked an Un-Cruise Hawaii for the week of March 5 through 12. For us, the total $9,500 fare is a ... Read more

My spouse and I have 40-something cruises under our belts. We've done mainstream cruise lines including Celebrity, HAL, Cunard, Oceania, Seabourn and Crystal. We were looking for an interesting cruise in Hawaii over Thanksgiving and ... Read more

Our Un-Cruise was not what we expected, but because of the Company's/staff's commitment to making our time in Alaska special, we had a remarkable vacation. Due to engine breakdown, the ship did not leave port. Sounds like the making of a ... Read more

Took my 18 yr old son for his HS graduation. We had a great time. I was aware of small boat cruises (my wife and I did over 20 years ago in Alaska) so had a pretty good idea of what to expect and the Un-Cruise team met or exceeded ... Read more

Having tired of looking at European cathedrals, we decided to enjoy and appreciate nature and wild animals for a change. Well, we saw a number of creatures, orcas, humpback whales, sea lions, harbor seals, brown bears, bald eagles and, ... Read more

The absolute best part of Un-Cruise was the crew. Each was outstanding and did their part to ensure that we each had the best possible experience. Everything that i did on this cruise i would have done anyway but they took all the ... Read more

This is a difficult review to write. We took this cruise expecting a small ship with cramped cabins. Actually, the cabins are quite spacious, and we were in the next to bottom category. We expected to be able to snorkel and sure enough, it ... Read more

My husband and I decided to mark our 50th birthdays with a trip to Alaska and this cruise (Discoverers' Glacier Country) was recommended highly by his folks. We liked the sound of it because we believed in a small-ship setting we'd have ... Read more

We originally booked an Alaska cruise with Oceania, but it was from Vancouver to San Francisco, making any significant excursions to Denali National Park or Fairbanks difficult. Our agent recommended a Regent Seven Seas cruise ending in ... Read more

I have been to all the islands many times over the past 25 years. But spending a week on the Explorer gave me a whole new perspective of the area. The crew was fantastic and you could tell they really enjoyed their jobs. They tried to make ... Read more

This was out 8th cruise with this company. This was by far the most disappointing. Our previous 7 were rated 5+, even the weather cursed trip we had. I would give this no more than 2 stars. Too many people. American Safari, the original ... Read more

This was one of the few trips we've taken that way exceeded our expectations! I booked this based on a past very positive experience cruising Alaska on a small ship with a company no longer in existence, so my expectations were high to ... Read more

All in all we had a lot of fun. No matter, in hindsight about one week after disembarkation in Hawaii, I remain less than satisfied with the overall experience. The Un-Cruise Adventures aboard the Safari Explorer was my second small cruise ... Read more

The American Safari cruise was everything we hoped it would be. Our cabin was very comfortable. We were impressed with the thoughtfully placed storage in every possible nook and cranny. Public areas were efficient, very comfortable, and ... Read more
