Additional details

Sail Date: Apr 2016

We had never been to the Seattle area and wanted to see as much of the area as possible. The Un-Cruise from Seattle was an excellent way to see this area. Each day we would be at anchor near a different island. In the evenings after dinner, we would hear about the next days' activities. We could sign-up for any of about 3-4 different excursions. Normally, 2 of the excursions were hikes. We always took the longer hike. We also did several kayak excursions. There was no cost for any of the excursions. All were lead by guides from the ship.

The ship is an excursion-style boat that holds fewer than 100 passengers. For our trip, there were about 45 passengers. The ship is showing some age and the cabins are on the small size (we had one of the 4 largest cabins). Luckily, you do not spend a lot of time in the cabins. Common areas were very nice for viewing wildlife. Also, the captain allows full passenger access to the bridge. It was awesome to sit up front and see the scenery from the bridge. Captain and his crew were very nice.

Dining was at a set time and the dining room could accommodate everyone easily. There were 3 entree selections in the evening, one a vegetarian entree. Food was very good. Breakfast and lunch were served buffet style. I had no complaints about the food.

Cabin Review

Cabin 4th deck

The largest 4 cabins are on the 4th deck behind the bridge. 401-404. These are still pretty small compared to a balcony cabin on a regular cruise ship. We had a large picture window but our cabin opened-up outside. So, at any time, we could quickly go outside to view wildlife or even go to the bridge. Bathroom is small with just a shower and one sink.
