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

Wonderful time. The crew was great and the passengers all got a long. Food was very good and the general atmosphere was very friendly. The cabin was small but functional-all we did was sleep there. First time on a cruise. Not for those who ... 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

Full disclosure, this was our fourth Alaska cruise with Un-Cruise Adventures and our second aboard the Safari Quest. There were 18 guests and nine crew - nice ratio! We love to un-cruise because it is the difference between looking at ... Read more

This experience was wonderful. The crew was exceptional. Very accommodating. Educated on what we saw and where we were going. If they didn't know an answer they'd know who did. They bent over backwards to make this an extraordinary ... Read more

We traveled on-board UnCruise Safari Endeavor from Juneau to Ketchikan on September 2014, the last cruise of the season (7 nights). I cannot describe our experience in words, but I'll do my best. It was WOW! Big WOW!. Huge WOW! ... Read more

For my 70th birthday, my wife and I wanted to cruise to Alaska, but we wanted to avoid the very large ships used on most cruises. We envisioned mostly staying onboard watching the beautiful scenery with the occasional whale. On the Safari ... Read more

My husband and I are not cruise people but this one ticked all our boxes. A small boat with only 60 passengers but very comfortable with great food, a fabulous crew and lots of interesting excursions. We enjoyed getting out into the ... Read more

Un-Cruise Adventures does an outstanding job providing a real Alaskan expedition geared to a wide range of interests and athletic ability. I have been on nine other cruises, all ships with at least 200 people. None had the same "adventure" ... 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

We got lucky and found Un-Cruise Adventures online. We wanted, and got, a wonderful small-ship adventure, totally unlike the corporate behemoths of the seas that hold no appeal for us. The descriptions in the company brochure, in print and ... Read more
