Un-Cruise choosen to stay in USA and do a river type cruise.

Beautiful scenery trip could be done by taking your own car and use ferry system, where you could be more independent.Good variety of meals were served at 7:30,12:30 and 6:30 or picnic lunches to go. Activities are 2 per day and they use sign up sheet in evening and post in AM. Three levels of activities each with a guide. The staff are English speaking, college educated or above, enthusiastic thru out the whole week, Un-Cruise can be very proud of the staff we had on board, they and the Captain made the trip what it was. Would have like to have more activities. Bring book/games for inbetween times. Did watch for wildlife, not skunked but not as many whates as I thought we would see. Rooms are small even though we had a Pathfinder room, your entrance door is heavey metal and slides open, stepping out onto deck. I would opt. for twin beds in lower area as Pathfinder not worth extra cost, also noisy with anchors and laundry storage area, people above. Not a place to get much rest.. At least with twin beds one has a place to sit and stretch out instead of climbing over. Our bathroom had a real smell to it until used for a few days, get new towels each day as they don't dry well. They base out of Crowne Plaza in Seattle, we came in day ahead and paid for transportation/another hotel that we didn't need to do if we would have had Un-Cruise info ahead of time. Called them 25 times for info about trip, very frustrating. Need for better communication!

Cabin Review

Cabin Pathfinder

Sm, has 5 shelves for clothes and hooks to hang jackets,etc. No chairs for sitting. Reading lites above bed, have DVD movies to use, no news or TV access,Wi-Fi. Bed was stripped of sheets on last day and mattress staining was noted with disgust! Metal doors to enter are hard to to open and heavey.
