One of the largest vessels in the Un-Cruise Adventures’ Luxury Expedition fleet, the 84-guest Safari Endeavour is still reassuringly small when compared with most megaships that sail the waters off the Pacific Coast of North America. If you’ve never been on an 84-guest ship before, fear not: small ships only look that way when they’re docked.

What makes Safari Endeavour a total standout in the small ship category is her unique styling that offers much of the amenities you’d expect from a larger ship, coupled with the active, adventurous nature of a true expedition ship. You can sit and read a book in the lounge, or enjoy a glass of wine in one of two aft-facing hot tubs. Or, you can go on as many hikes, kayak trips, stand-up-paddleboard runs, beachcombs and bushwhacks as you can cram into a single day. They choice, truly, is yours.

As with all of Un-Cruise Adventures’ luxury ships – distinguished by their rich navy-blue hulls – cruise fares for Safari Endeavour include all adventures ashore, all wine, spirits, beer, soft drinks, coffee, tea and water, and even one complimentary massage per passenger.

What makes this nimble, 232-foot long ship so popular with new and repeat guests alike? Let’s have a look!

The lowest passenger-accessible deck onboard Safari Endeavour, Main Deck is home to eight Oceanview Captain Staterooms (CAPT) and two Master Staterooms (MSTR), Numbers 103 and 104. Stateroom 104 is a new addition; prior to 2015, this space held the Massage Room aboard Safari Endeavour.

All the way aft is the ship’s Dining Room. This is where breakfast, lunch and dinner are served daily. Meals are surprisingly good given the highly-limited size of the galley, and cuisine is hearty, flavourful, and comforting – the kind of meal you’d expect Mom to cook, if Mom had a gourmet streak to her cooking.
