An Alaska cruise ship must be, above all, rugged and tough. Built in 1986 by Hansen Boats, a top builder of vessels for the Alaskan fishing industry for over seventy years, the M.V. Sikumi is fit for all seasons and sea conditions. This 67-foot luxury cruiser is powered by twin diesel engines and has two generator sets for reliable propulsion and electrical power. The bridge is equipped with the best navigation and communications systems available, a necessity for a small Alaska cruise ship.
The M.V. Sikumi provides the comfortable ride and spacious living of a traditional cruise ship, yet is small enough to afford her passengers access to the special places missed by larger cruise ships. In addition to the versatility offered to passengers by the boat, the staff is always eager to cater to the specific needs and desires of their passengers. The result is a once-in-a lifetime cruise for you and your group through the majestic and magnificent Alaskan wilderness aboard a premier Alaska small ship cruise.
The M.V. Sikumi is an Alaska cruise ship specially designed for her passengers to experience the outdoors amid some of the most dramatic scenery the Alaska Inside Passage can offer. View our cruise pricing here.
The interior of the M.V. Sikumi is as inviting and cozy as home. The entertainment center and salon lounge area provide ideal spaces to relax inside. The oversized galley is equipped to prepare fine Alaska cuisine. The dining area offers ample space for fine meals. Each of the four staterooms is equipped with its own toilet and shower. The state-of-the-art electronics on the boat can be extremely useful for business based cruises or for passengers conducting research or working away from the office.
The M/V Sikumi’s spacious upper deck is a perfect place for sightseeing, viewing wildlife, photography, stargazing, or lounging and relaxing. The top level covered dining area and sun deck are ideal for dinner parties, barbecues and casual dining al fresco. The wheelhouse is the best indoor viewing spot on the boat.
The Lower Deck houses the crew’s quarters, the engine room and the workshop. There is also ample storage space for guests’ excess baggage and empty suitcases to keep stateroom space free.

MV Sikumi Salon
One of the most impressive features of our Alaska cruise ship is our salon. It is the most common meeting place aboard the vessel, as people gather for meals, to relax in the evening, or for coffee in the morning.
The newly redecorated salon features a dining area, wet bar, and lounge area with television, VCR, CD player and library. The diverse facilities of the salon cater to a wide variety of people. We know that everyone is different, so even if people are on the same cruise they are going to want to have their own space and be able to do their own things.
The heart of the salon is our open, restaurant-style galley, which allows our guests to be a part of meal preparation without getting their hands dirty! Exchange tips and recipes with our chef as he prepares some of the finest meals you will ever eat
The open architecture of the salon allows guests to peer straight into the galley where the chef prepares all the food. The space is large enough to accommodate all of the boat’s passengers, while maintaining a cozy atmosphere uncommon on an Alaska cruise ship.
Even on an Alaska family vacation of a lifetime, there will be moments that you will want to slip away and relax. Our lounge is the perfect place to unwind and have some alone time. Passengers find the lounge a wonderful place to sit with a good book or cold drink after one of many exciting days.
Our Salon also features a bar which is fully stocked with a selection of beers and wines. Just let the crew know if you want a drink from the bar at any time. Guests are welcome to stock the bar with liquor, unfortunately our license doesn’t allow us to provide this. If you have any special requirements for mixers though, let us know and we can make sure they are available. The bar has all the equipment you need to make a simple Gin and Tonic, right through to a fancy cocktail and for something unique, you can gather and use Glacial Ice to cool your drinks.
The MV Sikumi guest rooms are comfortable and roomy. Plenty of storage room is available for all your luggage and an optional third bunk easily swings down for more sleeping space. Several regular household (110V) power points available. Each room has a private toilet and shower, making you feel right at home on your Alaska cruise adventure.
Our comfy beds are made up with Pure Cotton Sheets and your choice of a Goosedown or Synthetic Duvet and we provide lots of extra warm blankets and soft pillows. There are plenty of fluffy towels in your ensuite bathroom and you’ll also have the range of Baudelaire French Soaps and Body Care products to make you feel really relaxed and pampered. All linen is changed daily unless you request otherwise.
The Staterooms can comfortably accommodate families with a pull down ‘bunkbed’ to sleep an extra person in each room.
Our Alaska small cruise ship is well equipped to make it as comfortable for our passengers as possible. The commercial galley provides a space for our chef to prepare amazing cuisine on a daily basis. Our salon is a great place to relax with a book or have drinks with friends.
