TRIP OF A LIFETIME

This was the trip of a lifetime for my husband and me! The knowledgeable and delightful guides, the amazing food, the diversity of the folks on board, the warm Captain and lovely crew, the comfort of our tiny cabin, the kayaking, bushwhacking, skiff riding, hiking, wildlife up close, following whales up close, eagles too many to count, just everything was perfect! Worth every penny! We enjoyed ...

I chose this cruise as I "really" wanted to see Alaska. We arrived in Fairbanks on 8/13/17 to begin the land portion of this Uncruise trip. Uncruise outsources their land trips and I don't remember who the company was as I've thrown everything away and deleted everything from my email. Let me start by saying this entire trip including airfare from DFW for two was $22,000.00 which included trip ...

We were looking to celebrate my mother's 70th birthday with a trip to Alaska. I have done a medium size cruise in the past and a few of the gigantic boats. Each has there pluses and minuses. I have an eleven year old boy and an eight year old daughter who are very active....and our family loves the water. Some of the other small companies were too expensive, so we thought we might have to do a big ...

We choose this cruise based on ship size but would choose Un Cruise again due to covering all aspects of life on board in excellent manner. The cabin beds were comfortable, allowing for sleep even chronic hip and back problems. The showers were always hot. The cabin storage space was expended with the use of hanging hooks and an outside Locker for gear. The ability to adjust our own cabin ...

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 ...

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 ...

As many have said before in the small vs. large cruise discussions, small cruises really are a lot more flexible, and the captain has a lot of leeway in deciding where to go based on weather and wildlife sightings, etc. That is a huge advantage, in my opinion. Also, everybody on staff worked SO hard--guides, dining hall people, etc. What I really came to dislike, however, was the relentless ...

Great In So Many Ways, But Some Significant Downfalls

Review for Wilderness Discoverer to Alaska

There is something very special about cruising the Inside Passage, especially on a smaller ship, however I wondered do these smaller ships really take advantage of their smaller size. We are from Australia, so seeing humpback whales is not unusual, we saw a number of them in Alaska, but always some distance away and only the backs, they are still majestic and beautiful but sightings were not ...

I realize i am the naysayer on these guys, Perhaps i believed the brochures too much as UnCruise is still pretty "cruise" like in many ways. the impression given by their marketing is that this cruise is a chance to get close to nature with hikes, free kayaking and such. But your are kept on a pretty tight leash and the nature/adventure experience very limited. all in all the animal ...

We just returned from a 7 night cruise on the Wilderness Discoverer. Words cannon describe our wonderful experience. The accomodations were perfect. The food outrageously delicious. The crew was wonderful in every way possible. If you want to see Alaska -- this cruise is the best way to do it. You hit the towns the big cruise ships go to (Juneau, Wrangell, Kechikan) -- but more importantly you see ...
