Shipboard Policies

Electrical

All electrical outlets on the vessel are standard 110 Volt, the same voltage as in North America. If you live in other parts of the world, you may need a special adapter.

Medical Emergencies

The crew is trained in both first aid and CPR, and there are first aid supplies on board. While there is no physician on board, the ship is never too far from a port where medical facilities are available.

Smoking Policy

Smoking is prohibited anywhere inside the vessel. Smoking guests are welcome to smoke only on the outer aft deck in a designated area. Ashtrays will be provided. To protect the environment, guests should refrain from tossing cigarettes and cigars overboard.

Special Dietary Needs - Advance Notice Required

Un-Cruise Adventures is able to accommodate most special dietary needs. All booked guests are required to submit the completed Medical Information Form advising of any food allergies or other dietary requirements they may have. Completing this form will ensure that the chef has enough notice to prepare for your needs. It is recommended that you check in with the chef or hotel manager upon your arrival to the ship to confirm your request.

Wheelchair Access & Special Needs

Un-Cruise Adventures will earnestly try to accommodate guests wishing to travel with them. The primary concern is the health, safety, and well being of guests and crew. Guests with some mobility and who provide their own collapsible wheelchairs can generally be accommodated, but the vessels do not meet all applicable standards of the ADA Accessibility Guidelines for buildings and facilities. Guests needing any form of assistance and those who are physically disabled must be accompanied by someone who will take full responsibility for any needed assistance during the cruise and in the event of an emergency.

Vessel interiors and operating conditions can always present challenges to wheelchairs and participation may not be possible for some activities and events. Please be aware that raised door thresholds, steep stairs, and narrow passageways can prevent wheelchair passage. Some ports of call, shore excursions, use of inflatable excursion craft, docks, gangways, and other requirements may preclude a wheelchair guest from leaving the vessel. This decision will be made by the Captain and is binding.

Public Rooms

Public Spaces

Each vessel has its own unique personality, but all share a universal goal and with you in mind - to relax and be comfortable. Designed to bring the outside in, they come alive with art and artifacts from the places you'll travel. And the open bridge policy welcomes you to visit and discuss navigation with the captain.

Public spaces aboard include an inviting dining room, main lounge or salon (with a varied collection of board games, books, and DVDs), and observation decks ideal for close-up wildlife viewing and relaxing under the stars. You may also find a hot tub, massage room, and sauna; and most of the vessels are equipped with an underwater hydrophone, a kayak launch platform or swim step (making access to the water easy), as well as cameras that connect to the TVs, bringing life in the water directly inside the boat.

Entertainment

Educational/Enrichment Programs

In addition to getting extraordinarily close to nature and wildlife, Un-Cruise Adventures provides opportunities to learn along the way. They engage experts and historians to interpret, narrate, or bring history to life.

Dining

All Beverages Included In Cruise Fare

Un-Cruise Adventures' approach to wetting-your-whistle is as uncharacteristic as their vessels. Fine spirits, wines, and microbrews are served aboard all of their vessels, with many even featuring sustainable cask wines on tap. A rotating list of wine and microbrew selections will vary depending on your destination. On many itineraries, wine, beer, and spirits are included in your fare.

Meals Onboard

All onboard meals ensure innovative, healthful dining experiences and the executive chefs aboard use ingredients that reflect the flavors of your destination.

Mornings feature an early-riser breakfast of fresh fruit, baked-on-board pastries and breads, and a full breakfast complete with specialty items. Lunches range from pasta salads and sandwiches, to homemade soups and ethnic dishes. Dinners offer a choice of entr

Sports, Health and Fitness

Wellness Program

Onboard amenities allow you to escape through morning yoga stretches, relaxing in the on-deck hot tub, laps around the deck, enjoying a workout on the fitness equipment, or being pampered by the wellness instructor/massage therapist. Nature
