The vibe depends on the vessel. Your setting might be reminiscent of a neighborhood pub or a turn-of-the-century saloon. An intimate wine bar or an upscale lounge. Specialty coffee and teas are always available. Wines tend to come from Washington and Oregon, but impressive international wines are also available. Most of our boats feature sustainable cask wines on a rotating tap. And there’s a “Captain’s List” if you’re interested in purchasing some exceptional boutique wines on board.
Behind the bar, there are no wells or mass-produced options. What you’ll find are small batch, craft spirits. Along with barrel-aged cocktails (often mixed with seasonal, local ingredients), house-made mixers and cordials, even some house-infused spirits (like a cucumber vodka or gin). The UnCruise Bloody Mary mix is popular, too (guests line up for the stuff). Call us cocky, but we’re confident that we can hang our hat on having the best craft bars afloat!
And while the occasional tastings do pop up, the nature of most bartenders is that of a tinkerer. Inspiration can come from the unique experiences of the day, the wilderness explored, or stories from hearty explorers—Lewis & Clark, John Muir, and you. So enjoy! Fine wines, spirits, and microbrews served aboard are included in your fare.
