From first contact in planning tto departure, guests were the focus of the entire crew and Un-cruise staff. Each crew member from moment of approaching the ship until after we were safely on our way to airport did even tiny thing in a personal, friendly, competent and efficient manner. Their excitement was infectious ,,,their knowledge and acts enhanced our experiences both with the ship and its amenities as well as the real reason for small-ship cruise choice: up close, intense and personal contact with Nature and Alaska.

Our dream began in 1996... life was as life would be and finally our dream became reality and began June 2013... in all respects, our deepest gratitude to Un-Cruise, front office, captain, officers, staff and crew.

Words of compliment in the English language are oft over- or mis-used. Our experience with Un-cruise: superb. We look forward to at least two more trips with it.

Cabin review:

Trailblazer214
Great bed; blankets light but very warm and comfortable; comforter light, warm and cozy; bathroom as expected was tight but sufficient - shower was superb; only two electric outlets so a power strip recommended; airy; quiet; access to outside right at cabin door; we chose level convenient to main deck and activities, so one deck in either direction; hedonistic, no but ample and a good personal space.

Port and Shore Excursions

Port

Sitka was our disembarkation port - we had personal time before our flight left to the return-home flights. Sitka has several points of attraction - National Historic Park, museums Thompson and Sitka Sound Marine (which had a great cafe in an unassuming ramshackle shed next door with great clam chowder,) Raptor center. All are within easy walking distances, or shuttles available.
