I'd give Un-Cruise more stars if that was an option. I was on the Quest October 2013 for the British Columbia itinerary. The level of service from the crew (8 crewmembers for 13 passengers) was top-notch. The food was imaginatively prepared. They took special requests without hesitation. Activities were plentiful and varied. It tells you how much the passengers enjoyed this cruise that out of 13, 7 passengers put down deposits on a future cruise before we left the ship. I can't wait for my next Un-Cruise Adventure.

I was the lucky winner of the "Alaska Magazine" cruise contest. We took our cruise in August, 2012. We did the Northern Passages & Glacier Bay, Sitka to Juneau cruise. It was AMAZING!! We LOVED the casual atmosphere. The crew was fun and very knowledgeable about the area. Our cabin was very comfortable and had a huge window over looking the water. The humpback whales came up close and personal many times to entertain us. We saw orcas, puffins, bald eagles, bears, wolves, otters, and too many other animals to list. Kayaking in Glacier Bay and the skiff rides dodging floating ice was something I never thought I'd experience. It was a little rainy during our trip, but that didn't stop us. We were prepared with our rain gear and boots and had a wonderful time in the rain and fog. The small ship is a great way to make new friends and memories to last a life time. I would highly recommend this to everyone. The big cruise ships are nice, but the casual atmosphere and the adventures on this cruise beat out docking in ports to shop, etc.

Our cruise was from May 25-June 1, 2013 aboard the Wilderness Adventurer. It was the trip of a lifetime! Alaska is so beautiful and everyone we met was so friendly, from the people at the hotel we stayed at to all the crew members! The crew greeted us at the dock and made us feel at home right away. We wanted a cruise that was informal ( I hate wearing a suit) and full of adventure. This cruise was just the ticket! We hiked, kayaked, whale watched, saw Orcas, Mt. Goats, seals and all other kinds of wildlife. The scenery was awesome! We walked on a glacier, saw the glacier calving, kayaked past icebergs, hiked in the wilderness! We were able to even take a float plane trip out of Yes Bay! We took thousands of pictures because everywhere you tuned it was awe inspiring! We went places no big ship could go. Made friendships that will last a lifetime on board. It was the trip of a lifetime! You can't get this kind of service, care or treatment from a big cruise ship. We 're already planning on a return trip with Un-Cruise! A special thanks to the crew of the Wilderness Adventurer- Capt. Rod, Amy, Trevor, Sarah , Sara, Amber, Cory, Melanie, Jess, Heather, Mark, Andrea, Gavin and all the rest of the crew.

"This Peru travel agency planned and booked a custom trip for me and my wife to Peru in October 2015. The trip included a short stay in Lima, and almost a week in the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and Cusco. Their service was outstanding. The planning for the trip was perfect, and we relied entirely on them as we had not been to Peru before. They also went beyond the call of duty by getting a reservation at a good hotel in Lima even though there was a huge convention of the world bank in town at the time. They persisted until they found a cancellation. they even booked two good restaurants for us in Lima. The guides they provided were also excellent, including one who was truly outstanding.

I never would have located this company except through Zicasso. Two years ago we made a trip to Brazil and we looked and looked for a travel agency of this kind and never did find one. I would highly recommend using Zicasso to find the appropriate agency if you are traveling somewhere that you have not previously been to, or if you do not have an agency you are satisfied with."

    About Un-Cruise Adventures

    Formerly American Safari Cruises, Un-Cruise Adventures changed its name in 2013 to reflect its philosophy: You won’t be on a conventional cruise with us. Un-Cruise has an eight-ship fleet that includes expedition vessels, yachts, and one replica 19th-century coastal steamer. None of the ships holds more than 88 passengers, and one carries a maximum of 22. Most are in the 40-to-70-passenger range. Experts such as National Park Rangers in Alaska often come on board to give lectures and answer questions, and guides often try to arrange cultural encounters with local people.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Un-Cruise Adventures combines water-borne adventure with small-ship intimacy and casually clothed luxury. It’s an unusual combination that sets them apart from most other cruise lines. On-board service is personalized and excellent with a high crew-to-passenger ratio, and guides are extremely knowledgeable. Ambience on board is relaxed; you never need to dress up. Once you’ve taken an Un-Cruise, you may find it difficult to return to “regular” cruising. 

    Who Travels With Them? 

    Adventurous and active travelers of any age can enjoy an Un-Cruise. Un-Cruise does attract primarily upscale passengers, though if you travel in the offseason and choose one of the lesser-category cabins, their prices are competitive with other small-ship cruise lines. (And more amenities are included in the base rates than on many other lines.)  Un-Cruise also offers family trips.

    Where Do They Operate?

    Un-Cruise “adventure cruises” sail Alaska’s Inside Passage, the Galapagos Islands, Hawaii, Mexico’s Sea of Cortes, the Pacific Northwest (Coastal Washington state and British Columbia), and Central America (Costa Rica and the Panama Canal, including a complete crossing from the Atlantic to Pacific). They also run river cruises on the Columbia and Snake rivers of the Northwestern U.S. Un-Cruise Adventures like to get off the beaten path, and, using small ships, they can do just that.

    How Does It Work?

    Kayaking, paddle-boarding, snorkeling, hiking, and going out in skiffs to watch for whales or other marine life are typical activities, depending on the destination. There’s also plenty of time to be out on deck, read in the lounge, or chat with fellow passengers at cocktail hour and over meals. 

    Why Travel With Them?

    If you don’t like waiting in line to embark or disembark your ship; want to get to know many of your fellow passengers; prefer itineraries flexible enough to, say, go in search of whales if the captain spots some in the distance; believe in the “leave no traces” style of travel; enjoy good food and service; and want to bring home intimate knowledge of a destination rather than just souvenirs, then an Un-Cruise may be right for you. 

    About Lost World Adventures

    Founded in 1987, Lost World Adventures offers private and customized trips to South and Central America and Antarctica.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Your guide will get to know you before beginning to plan your customized experience. If you want to have a relaxing beach vacation, they can arrange that. Or if you’d rather hike up the adrenaline, they are able to offer that as well.

    Who Travels With Them?

    They accommodate anyone from honeymooners to large groups. Trips are generally in middle price range - you won’t find tremendously budget items here, but they do their best to craft a trip based on all factors, price included.

    Where Do They Operate?

    They are focused in South and Central America, with a variety of trips from beach vacations to Costa Rica, food tours in Argentina, or Machu Picchu adventures. They are also among the few small companies providing cruises to Antarctica.

    Why Travel With Them?

    For the variety of trip type and theme you can choose from. They have food and wine tours, adventure tours, beach getaways, and cruises - all of which are customizable to your likes and dislikes. If you’d prefer not to overly customize, they have pre-set itineraries as well.
