Sail along with me and discover what it's like to be a passenger aboard UnCruise Adventure's majestic sail through Alaska's Glacier Bay National Park.
Thinking about taking an Alaskan cruise? You might want to consider a boutique small ship expedition cruise: the perfect combination of comfort and adventure.
It's an unforgettable experience, as I hope my travel article Alaskan Mystique, featured recently in the San Diego Union Tribune Travel section, conveys.

Please enjoy my 10BEST/USA TODAY photo essay on the beautiful city of Juneau, Alaska.
Juneau's colorful history and incredible scenery began drawing visitors back in the early 1900's. Today, the picturesque city, which is the capital of Alaska, is a popular cruise port and a favorite destination among adventure travelers.
Cruise ships of all sizes make their way down the Gastineau Channel from Juneau to explore Alaska's Inside Passage and Glacier Bay National Park. Juneau itself offers a wide variety of visitor activities and amenities. It is home to the breathtaking Mendenhall Glacier, one of the world's few urban, "drive up" glaciers.
The stunningly beautiful and pristine Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska is one of a handful of our national parks that is only accessible by boat or small plane. Several major cruise lines depart from Juneau for this adventure during the late spring/summer season. However, for an unforgettable experience that will provide a truly unique and personal encounter with the beauty of this national park, consider a small, boutique adventure cruise, such as Un-Cruise Adventures.
The relatively small size of the ship allows entry into fjords and inlets not accessible by larger cruise ships. An added bonus is the ability to enjoy off-ship excursions daily, which include kayaking, skiff boat tours, and bushwhacking experiences: not to speak of gourmet dining and spectacular scenery right outside your cabin door.
