Overview Un-Cruise Adventures has a fleet of small ships that explore Alaska, the Columbia River, the Galapagos Islands, Hawaii, Mexico, and British Columbia. There is a relaxed and casual environment on board. Their small ship allows for up-close explorations and there are trained leaders and guides on board each ship to give insights into each destination. Destinations Alaska Columbia/Snake Rivers Galapagos Hawaiian Islands Mexico Pacific Northwest Minimum Age Children eight and older are welcome on any departure. Exceptions for children seven years and younger may be made; call Un-Cruise Adventures or your travel agent to request pre-approval. On private charters of any vessel, all ages are welcome and any age restrictions are waived. For sailings aboard the Safari Quest, children must be at least fourteen; Safari Quest welcomes children ages thirteen and younger on private yacht charters only. Babysitting This line does not offer babysitting services. Pregnancy Policy Due to the limitations of vessel facilities, bookings cannot be accepted for women who will be 30 weeks or more pregnant at the conclusion of travel. Women in their third trimester (greater than 24 weeks, but less than 30 weeks) must submit a letter from their physician granting permission to travel by boat (and for air travel, if applicable). Children’s Programs There are no formal children’s programs aboard Un-Cruise Adventures’ ships. Un-Cruise Adventures will have select Family Departures. These cruises will offer family focused activities and guides. Chapter XIV Small Ship Cruises and Lines with Sailing Vessels and Yachts This segment of the cruise industry is unusual and offers a different type of experience and ship. Seasoned as well as budget- conscious travelers will have an interest in these lines. These typically smaller cruise lines offer immersion experiences at various destinations. Some are yachts, sail-assisted ships, and dual-purpose cargo/passenger ships. All generally are regarded as “specialty lines.” These vessels are able to visit ports and destinations that are not accessible to bigger ships, and their itineraries can be flexible; for example, captains may, for a number of reasons, prefer to remain longer in a port than previously scheduled, or even to make an unscheduled call! In general, these vessels spend more time in port—especially those which have an active nightlife. While the ticket price, the service, the cuisine, and the amenities earn the adjective “luxury,” you won’t find soaring atriums or a lot of black tie events. This cruise experience resembles a voyage aboard a private yacht, where you have a comfortable cabin with nice amenities, can dress as you please, and have some flexibility about when and with whom you dine. Some of the vessels listed are fairly inclusive (wine, beer, soft drinks, cocktails, and gratuities are included), but others are not.

Policies subject to change without notice, always check with your travel agent regarding pregnancy policies and children age policies prior to booking your cruise.
