Sail Date: Jun 2017

My wife and I just completed an 'Inner Reaches, Western Cove', Alaska trip with a week aboard the 'Wilderness Explorer'. Simply Remarkable........We saw Orca, Humpback breaching, black bear, moose, dall's porpoise and many other bird and flora life. Above our expectations, the food was good and well catered for. My wife is a Celiac (Gluten Free) and she was well looked after - thank you Uncruise. The small ship was comfortable and a family feeling was quickly felt by all aboard with thanks to a professional, dedicated team who made us feel very welcome and special. Hot showers, good heating and great service. Not to mention the daily activity choices with experienced and knowledgeable guides. What a fantastic adventure for us 'Aussies'. One we'd love to replicate in the future. Uncruise are a great alternative to the 'big ship cruises' as we were able to change course to take advantage of the wildlife and geography as events unfolded. This is a truly great experience. Do it....if you want an adventure.

Cabin Review

Cabin Pathfinder

The cabin was small but well laid out. Power points on both sides of the bed/cabin would have been better (minor). The bed was very comfortable for both of us. Cabin heating was good and you can open the window if you want. The 'in room' washbasin was well appointed and 'roomy' enough for our bits and pieces. The shower/toilet combo was small but we had no issues once we got acclimatised. TV/DVD combo worked with out a hitch. 'Efficient and comfortable' is how I would describe the room - after all, we spent most of our time elsewhere......we'd certainly book another of this standard without hesitation. The room was cleaned/tidied daily which was nice. But don't expect luxuries.... this room is for those who appreciate comfort and adventure - but not for those who want to spend a lot of time in it.
