Blue Hawaii
By Pamela Wade, New Zealand Herald

It was while we were rolling joints on the top deck, watching the moon set and the sun rise above the island of Maui, that I had my revelation about this unconventional cruise line.

So, when the yoga session was over, I went straight back to my cabin to write it down: UnCruise is all about connecting with here and now.

In my case, the "here" was four Hawaiian islands, and the fact we began at Molokai was significant. Though it's called the Friendly Island, its locals have resisted corporate tourism, and it has been only through dedicated consultation with community members and elders that UnCruise has been permitted to visit with its ship the Safari Explorer — so far the only company to do so.
