"Our trip was more amazing than my expectations! Just fabulous. Cannot say enough about the crew!"
- Gwen & Steve F., Appleton, WI; Safari Explorer
"We have visited all parts of the world (except Antartica) and our two 7-day cruises have been our best holiday experiences ever."
- Bob T., Australia; Wilderness Discoverer
"Impressed by the atmosphere that accomodated young kids, teens, adults and plus 70's like me."
- Maurice R.; Osgood, IN; Wilderness Discoverer
"The food on our un-cruise was amazing! The chefs and crew were so accomodating to my gluten free needs. We loved eating the healthy meals that tasted sooo good. Thanks to everyone on the WEX!"
- Monica & Ryan J., Seattle, WA; Wilderness Explorer
"We want to express our heart-felt appreciation to the Endeavour crew and staff for making our recent cruise the vacation of a lifetime. There were plenty of highlights: the wildlife viewing, the stunning scenery, the outings ashore and by DIB and kayak – the great weather, even! But what really made it truly special was the enthusiasm, genuine warmth, and caring attitude of the entire crew. PS: We loved our two previous trips with Cruise West – but this cruise went above and beyond!"
- Carl S. & Krisin C., Calistoga, CA; Safari Endeavour
"I’ve Un-Cruised twice and it is the best way to see Alaska; a small group up close and personal with a lot of whales, seals, sea lions, sea otters, bears, glaciers, etc!"
- Libby Slocum; Paw Paw, MI; Wilderness Discoverer
"Food was amazing! Special kudos to the pastry chef for making me the best gluten-free cookies ever!"
- Jeanine L & Wayne A; La Mesa, CA; Safari Explorer
"I play a game with myself when I travel. I try to think of ways to make things better. Not that they're bad but even the best can be made better. I couldn’t think of anything on this trip. Everything, everyone, everyday was amazing and there were so many things that were so amazing that I never in a millions years would have thought to do - hot chocolate in the middle of ice? Brilliant! Thanks for EVERYTHING!"
- Christy C., Glendale, AZ; Safari Quest
"There aren't enough favorable adjectives to describe the cruise on board the Quest. We hated to leave! We were treated like family from the start and it was so much fun getting to know the whole crew, who were so happy doing their jobs. The quality of the food was beyond belief. We wish we could go on this cruise every other week! It was more than we expected. Now we have the most difficult decision - how to tell everyone what a great experience we had without everyone booking the boat solid so we can never get on it again. We hope to be on one of your cruises again in the future!"
- Nancy & Wayne L., Centerport, NY; Safari Quest
"The crew are now more friends/family/team mates with who we shared so many beautiful moments. They were the BEST!! The Wilderness Explorer not only took us safely to so many amazing places but, for a week, it became a real 'home' away from home. The cabin has everything one could wish for, it was comfortable, and clean. Eating became a celebration of food. One can truly see how much work/passion the galley staff puts onto it. We cannot think of any better experience than this."
- Ana P.D., West Palm Beach, FL; Wilderness Explorer
"I really appreciated the casual atmosphere on-board. The interaction with the crew made it feel more like I was on an excersion with a team as opposed to a tourist being 'processed' by an industry. Many thanks - this has really meant a lot to me."
- Richard T., Owasso, OK; Wilderness Adventurer
"I'm not sure it could have been better - probably the nicest, well-rounded vacation I've ever had - everything about it exceeded expectations. Being able to go up to the bridge was so informative and interesting. The crew and staff were EXCEPTIONAL!"
- Phoebe B., Redding, CT; Wilderness Discoverer
"It was an incredible week. The rooms were excellent, the food was healthy, tasty and plentiful. The crew and especially the guides and wellness coordinator were great. They bent over backwards to make our trip enjoyable. I loved the yoga on the back deck each morning. The various activities (hiking, kayaking, skiffing, etc) were available all the time and lots of fun. The Captain was extremely enthusiastic and fun and considerate. This is a trip for anyone-all age groups find things to enjoy. We had a few three generation families on our Un-Cruise and all enjoyed it."
- Joan O., Minneapolis, MN; Wilderness Explorer
"Our trip to Alaska was simply unbelievable. People use terms like the trip of a lifetime casually, but this truly was such a trip. There simply aren’t enough superlatives to dole out to each of the crew. They were, quite simply, remarkable. I was particularly struck by how truly happy they seemed. This may sound silly, but in the hustle and bustle of Silicon Valley, I see lots of successful people, but it is rare to see people who are truly so happy. It gave me a lot to think about. I have been recommending the experience like crazy; I can’t think of anything possible that could have been done to make the trip more wonderful for us."
