Message from UnCruise Adventures

I want to begin with a thank you to our dedicated crew, loyal guests and every curious traveler who is keeping the dream of travel alive. We have received a huge amount of positive support from our long-term guests and future travelers, and this is not overlooked. Now more than ever is a time to step back and refocus. One of the UnCruise mottos is to seek uncharted courses driven by innovation – and now is a perfect time to dive into a new way to travel. We will be excited to get back to the small communities we visit and share the hands-on experiences that support the interconnectedness of people, places and the environment we live in. We look forward to seeing you aboard again soon. Find more at https://www.uncruise.com/

About UnCruise Cruises

Picture off-the-beaten-track and up-close-and-personal ecotourism combined with the personal service of an upscale cruise. Imagine an encounter with a bear, humpback whale or spinner dolphin in the morning, followed by a perfectly chilled martini and hors d'oeuvres at cocktail hour.

Who goes on UnCruise cruise ships?

Most UnCruise passengers fall into the 40- to 70-year-old age group. They're generally college educated, active outdoorspeople and hail mostly from the U.S., followed by Canada, Australia/New Zealand and the U.K. The cruise line's Family Discoveries program (geared for kids ages 8 to 13) attracts families, and you'll find quite a few multigenerational groups during holidays and summer vacations, especially in Alaska.

UnCruise has a devoted following and every sailing has a significant number of past UnCruise passengers.

Do I have to dress up on a UnCruise cruise?

No, the dress code on UnCruise is casual at all times.

Is everything free on UnCruise cruises?

No, but quite a lot is. All excursions, meals and beverages (soft and alcoholic) are included in your cruise fare, as is a half-hour massage -- on select ships only. Snorkeling gear is provided free of charge on some itineraries, while on others you will have to pay a rental fee.

Gratuities are additional, as are port taxes and fees.

What are UnCruise’s most popular activities?

Passengers choose UnCruise because they want to get off the ship and explore off-the-beaten path points of interest that can only be reached by inflatable boats. They prize encounters with bears, seals, monkeys and whales, so they are generally hiking, kayaking, snorkeling, swimming or paddle-boarding by day and enjoying drinks, tapas and dinner in the evening.

The excursions have options designed for a wide range of fitness levels, from easy exploration of a coastline or glacier on a skiff or a gentle shore walk to group kayaking and hard-charging challenges for only those in the best shape.

Why go with UnCruise?

  • Expedition-style itineraries to the world's most beautiful destinations.
  • Small boutique ships where passengers become fast friends.
  • Shore excursions and onboard discussions led by knowledgeable naturalists.

Best for: Active travelers and wine lovers seeking expedition travel

Not for: Anyone looking for flashy fun and late night excitement; wheelchair users

Outstanding Trip to Glacier Bay N.P.

TLDR: Based on our experience on this UnCruise we put a down payment on a future cruise. We had an absolutely amazing trip aboard the Wilderness Discoverer on our Glacier Bay National Park Adventure. One... Read More

All-Inclusive Adventure in Alaska

Wow! What a trip! Like most others have said, I didn't have any interest in overrunning small Alaskan towns with thousands of my newest "friends." A large ship wouldn't get me as close to the nature and... Read More
