Our luxury yacht cruise on the Safari Quest through the islands of British Columbia with Un-Cruise Adventures was truly an incomparable cruise experience. The yacht is relatively small, holding only about 22 passengers along with crew, but was very comfortable and roomy inside. The crew was one of the best we have ever had and provided great service, seeming to really enjoy their jobs and the cruise experience. We did have one night of really rough water when we left Seattle and there was some seasickness aboard, so be sure to take motion sickness medication if you are prone to this. The rest of the cruise was completely smooth and the weather was beautiful in the area in early April. Our cabin was very small compared to those we had experienced on large cruise ships but it was comfortable and well-designed so everything we brought was easily put away. The food was good and plentiful with three meals a day and plenty of snacks available. There was an open bar with a variety of drinks and you were welcome to get yourself a soft drink, coffee, tea, or hot chocolate at any time. The best part of the cruise was the locations as the areas were visited were just gorgeous. Every day, a variety of activities were offered; everything from kayaking on your own to group hikes and tours of the area by skiff. We had a local expert on the ship and she was wonderful about sharing information about the local flora and fauna, even plucking starfish from the rocks to show us in the skiff. We absolutely recommend this cruise to anyone who is interested in a small ship adventure in this area. It's the best way to see the beautiful islands of British Columbia.

Cabin review:

Our stateroom was small but well-designed for comfort and storage. We had a queen bed with a port light window which you could not see out of but provided light, a full bathroom with small shower, and plenty of storage space for two large suitcases full of clothes. We were able to store our suitcases in an empty cabin; otherwise they would have been in our way as there was no other place for them. Our cabin was very quiet but did feel quite a bit of motion when the water was rough.
