"After traveling to Japan, Thailand and Australia last month, we both agree that hands down this week was the best and most memorable. Overall, very impressed with how you accommodated everyone's needs and wants. You guys are amazing!!" — Amanda and Dan K., Anacortes, WA (2015)

"So extremely impressed with your crew. I also work in the industry of leading tours and often am very critical of crews/guides since I manage crews too, and every single member of the crew impressed me during the trip. Extremely qualified, professional, and friendly crew. Also, pretty blown away with the program you offer guests from very adventurous to very low key. Activities for every skill/activity level. I will recommending these tours to everyone! So Impressed!!!"
Ben E., Douglas, AK (2016)

Costa Rica & Panama

“Oh - what a great time we had! Each day we had a unique adventure, we rode the skiffs to amazing places, hiked, snorkeled, kayaked, took about a thousand pictures of land and seascapes, birds and animals...I can't say enough. We also did the post trip, and had an additional 5 days with our fantastic guide, Roy. So, what are you waiting for?” — Carol H., Ladson, SC (2017)

“We went to the Galápagos recently with UnCruise and it was beyond awesome! Oh, my it was incredible, a for sure bucket list trip.” — Sandy S., Dayton, OH (2016)

“The place, the crew, the ship, and the experiences exceed all of our expectations. Galapagos was a definite bucket list destination for both of us, yet all of the reading and researching beforehand still left plenty of opportunities for surprises. If you are into wildlife, there is no better place in our experience to see some of our planet's strangest critters up close. Blue footed boobies doing their courtship dances! Stepping over marine iguanas on the trail! Coming nose-to-snorkling mask with a sea lion! And, of course, the giant tortoises, green sea turtles, etc. Guides were patient, knowledgable, and entertaining, and as always the food was fantastic. This was our third trip with UnCruise, and we will keep coming back for as long as we can.” — Mike and Usha R., Olathe, KS (2017)

"I was so very pleased to be able to participate in so many activities because the crew and staff were so helpful and caring to me with a broken foot. UnCruise is a fabulous experience!" — Helene W., New York, NY (2016)

"What was the highlight of [our] UnCruise Adventure? Sharing adventures with people who suddenly became family." — Anne P., Summerville, SC (2015)

We had opportunities to night snorkel with Manta Rays, day snorkel along the reefs with colorful fish and sea turtles, Kayak along the coastline, and visit historic places along the way, learning about Hawaiian lore and traditions. This was our second cruise with Uncruise, and we've already made a deposit on the next one, destination to be determined!!” — Patrick and Deb A., Seiad Valley, CA (2017)

"Please let the staff know that they truly made our vacation a wonderful experience. Their enthusiasm for all of the activities was fantastic, and contagious. We felt like they were just as excited we were." — Gretchen C., Portland, OR, (2015)

Mexico's Sea of Cortes

“There were a lot of things I thought I wouldn't like about a cruise. None of them were true. Everything felt very personalized, and the small groups were just the right size. I went from snorkel 101 to swimming with whale sharks in a week! The instructions were very specific, and safety was a priority. I really loved how all of the crew could come on excursions, so there was a diversity of experiences for those of us newbies to try something hard.” — Jessica F., Roslindale, MA (2017)

"This trip exceeded my expectations in every way. I have nothing but glowing praise for this wonderful experience." — Terry E., Florence, KY (2015)

"When I got onboard I soon met many returning passengers and I quickly saw why - this is perfect! I love the flexibility of the schedule."
— Rosalie M., Cincinnati, OH (2015)

“I tried activities that I had not done in a long time or ever, so I really appreciated the care and patience of the crew to teach or reteach a 66 year old how to enjoy water sports. Because I live in San Diego, I have many opportunities for water sports year round and now I can go back and participate in them with confidence because what the UnCruise crew has taught me.” — Carol H., San Diego, CA (2016)

"So impressed with the food, and we are foodies! Couldn't have asked for more. Love the wine and beer paired meals." — Hannah H., West Midlands, UK (2015)
