Sail Date: Aug 2013
Cabin:

Just returned from 12 days with Un-Cruise Adventures on S.S. Legacy, Juneau to Seattle, and cannot say enough about the onboard style, the staff, the food, and above all, the 'adventure'. With the ability to spend as much time as needed in any given location, we were treated to 3 hours (!!) watching humpback whales bubble feeding in Icy Straights; we 'swam' with porpoises just off the bow; we observed pods of orca up-close; and we came eye-to-eye with two curious humpbacks who used the bottom of the ship for a good scratch.

Because Un-Cruise Adventures can stop for as long as they like, whenever they like, we experienced Alaska in a way no other company can provide. Add to that the tireless attention of the crew, exceptional dining (even the vegetarian dishes were incredible), the fun character interactions with the likes of John Muir, CJ and Ethel Berry, Sargent William Sharpe, and con-man Danny McSwain, and it was truly the trip of a lifetime.

Excursions and alcohol are included, with optional excursions available (bear-watching, anyone?). Be sure to join in the poker game in the Pesky Barnacle. A real highlight and a great way to get to know fellow passengers even better!

Cabin Review

Cabins are cozy, but comfortable, in keeping with the Victorian-era style of the ship. Never felt the need for more space as we spend next to no time in our cabin. All the action is on deck or in the public rooms!
