Traveled with children

When we decided to go to Alaska, I was looking for a tour that would be intimate, active and real, without getting caught in touristy activities and gift shops. I also needed to find an approach that worked for both my young kids (6 and 9) and my father (75). It seemed like an impossible task. Except it wasn't.

We did an Un-Cruise "Luxury" cruise which threaded the needle perfectly. First, the boat is fantastic. Very comfortable, all amenities, excellent food and service, friendly staff. Barely felt a bump or wave. I have lot of unopened sea sickness meds because we never even thought about feeling woozy. We were impressed.

Second, the excursions are fantastic. Each morning and afternoon they give you choices (kayak, small boat, hiking, beach walk, etc.) with various areas of focus and intensity. Even if you're not an "outdoorsy, adventurous person" you can TOTALLY do this. The guides are SOOOO knowledgeable, friendly, fun, engaging and helpful. They provide great rain gear, boots, binoculars, advice, and a TON of information. I feel like a went to graduate school in the week we were on this boat.

Cabin Review

Well organized. Was very easy to stay neat and feel comfortable in a small boat room. Great water pressure in the shower, comfy bed. TVs in each room with daily schedule and DVD players, and a DVD library which my kids made good use of in down time!

Port Reviews

Juneau

Juneau is a cute little town. Good to hear about Alaska culture and history, but we didn't spend much time. We did check out the Mendenhall Glacier and dog sledding. Fun, but was just a tiny warm up for the boat trip ahead.
