At Uncommon Journeys, we have long been fans of small-ship travel for every good reason. Like most of our guests, we prefer to travel with like-minded individuals in a small intimate setting where by the end of the first day, the bartender knows your favorite drink, the dining room server the fact that you like Crystal hot sauce and the captain invites you to visit the bridge. Small ships also allow guests to get close to things whether it is whales in Alaska, dolphins in the Sea of Cortez, or bald eages on the Columbia River in a way large vessels never allow.

With a small ship, you are not minutes away from your stateroom, not in a queue of 1000 people to disembark and you have a front-row seat to explore, engage or simply relax as you see fit. Almost all of the small ships we feature are wonderfully casual, offer unique off the beaten path destinations, include virtually everything upfront in the fare, from shore excursions, health and wellness activities to wines & spirits. Time and time again, we have heard small ship vacations rated the best vacation ever by happy customers. We invite you to find out.

SeaDream has long been a firm favorite of ours, the word Dream being key here. These are two exquisite large yachts carrying only 112 lucky guests with a superlative staff of 95 crew members. They are stylish and chic, warm and inviting with luxury accommodations and some of the finest cuisine afloat. With inclusive open bar and gratuities it is like being on the yacht belonging to a very wealthy friend with extraordinary good tastes.

And the itinerary we offer is every bit as exceptional, a yachtsman’s view of the West Indies with isolated and seldom-visited ports. There simply is no finer Caribbean cruise at any price, let alone at a value as exceptional as this.

There may be a place on earth more magical than Tahiti but we seriously doubt it. Even the names evoke a very special place with destinations like Bora Bora, Raiatea and Huahine and there is no better way to explore this tropical paradise than aboard the casually elegant great sailing ships of Windstar Cruises.

With a small passenger count, great dining indoors and out, excellent service and splendid attention to details, these are the perfect ships to explore French Polynesia on. All at prices that are surprisingly affordable. We offer dozens of departures, all with convenient airline add-on fares and all with the option of extra time in Tahiti before or after the cruise.  Due to the small capacity of these extraordinary sailing ships, early reservations are encouraged to avoid disappointment.
