A Fantastic Adventure

We sailed on the Safari Voyager on her east-bound trip, Costa Rica to Panama and it was an fantastic adventure.

Having previously cruised with UnCruise in Alaksa, we knew to expect high standards in customer service and excellent backcountry knowledge. What we encountered went far beyond my expectations. On the Costa Rica & Panama trip, all of the UnCruise expedition leader and guides were either from Costa Rica or Panama — to hear their infectious love for their countries really made a big difference as we experienced the amazing wildlife, jungles, and beaches. When we got to Panama, to have the trip through the canal narrated by a former employee of the canal system was a treat.

We travelled with several family members, our age range was for 44 to 77; there was always something for everyone to do that matched their ability and or desire for adventure.

The food was fantastic. The chef and his onboard team make really excellent food in a tiny kitchen that spends a lot of time moving around. Fresh bread baked daily, a consistently excellent vegetarian course, and a great selection of wine beer and spirits. On beach party days, the crew would setup a small bar on land, so we could come out of the ocean and grab a tasty beverage.

All in all, just like the Alaska cruise before, this was the trip of a lifetime. I can’t wait to UnCruise again.
