Wonderful Trip

Review for a Hawaii Cruise on Safari Explorer

desert raven 49
6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

34 of us set sail on 2/23 to explore the marine world around the western side of four islands. The Explorer was filled with an engaging and inclusive group of passengers, who were just the nicest group of people imaginable.(you can ask the crew). Highlights include the night snorkel with manta rays. There were more opportunities to snorkel in Kealakekua Bay. I really enjoyed swimming off the ...

Beautiful Hawaii Waters

Review for a Hawaii Cruise on Safari Explorer

10+ Cruises • Age 80s

This is our 4th cruise with Uncruise and it was very nice. The ship had a great crew who were knowledgeable, friendly , and hard working. They make all activities enjoyable and easy. Food was good with several choices. Was nice that the portions were not too generous. Also good that the chef did not over salt anything. Ship was very clean. Our only complaint was the bed location in our ...

Busted A/C, Sewer Gas Smell, Surly Crew after Tips Received

Review for a Hawaii Cruise on Safari Explorer

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

We chose this cruise due to the small size & no dress code. Flew into Honolulu, stayed overnight & toured Pearl Harbor Saturday morning. Then flew to Molokai for the cruise embarkation. Ship was fine but the master cabins were lacking (see detailed cabin review). The food was good to very good. Experienced Uncruisers told us they believed the food quality has diminished significantly in recent ...

GREAT trip, but not for everybody.

Review for a Hawaii Cruise on Safari Explorer

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

My husband & I are in our sixties and love small ship exploration trips. Our cruise of the Hawaiian islands with Un-Cruise was our best trip yet. It's all about the small ship casual experience (less than 30 guests). Definitely worth the price. No fancy stuff. No entertainment. No crowds. Just great staff and fellow travelers who love the same things we do: nature, fish, animals, hiking, ...

Best way to see Hawaiian Islands

Review for a Hawaii Cruise on Safari Explorer

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We are Sailors but chose Safari Explorer in the Hawaiian Islands because of a lack of infrastructure for sailboat chartering there. Our trip included stops in Molokai, Lanai, Maui, and the Big Island. The beauty of Hawaii is stunning and we thoroughly enjoyed seeing it. And we were very pleased with the package of wildlife viewing at sea, snorkeling stops, hikes ashore, and cultural/historic ...

Expectations Exceeded

Review for a Hawaii Cruise on Safari Explorer

Carl Briscoe
2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

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 significant amount and we came into the trip with very high expectations. I would never have imagined that our expectations would be so thoroughly exceeded and that we ...

Whales, Manta Rays,

Review for a Hawaii Cruise on Safari Explorer

2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

I've been reading through the reviews and have noted that I actually travelled on the same cruise as Carl, however my booking was through New Zealand based Wild Earth Travel. Carl has done an excellent summary of the cruise, I could not agree with his comments more. In particular - a) the crew made us feel like family, they were so welcoming and really embodied the Hawaiian hospitality. ...

The only way to go!

Review for a Hawaii Cruise on Safari Explorer

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

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 found Un-Cruises on the web. Judging from previous member reviews, we weren't quite sure what to expect. Short and sweet, this was one of the top 5 cruises we ...

Review for a Hawaii Cruise on Safari Explorer

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

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 anxiety out of it. Five mile hike to a sacred waterfall, drift snorkeling off the coast of maui, night snorkeling with giant manta rays - all made accessible to ...
