Un-Cruise Adventures new brochure of adventures departing from November 2013 through April 2015 hits travel agents’ desks starting the week of July 22, 2013.
Eight vessels carrying 22-88 guests specialize in small-group adventure cruises in Alaska, Hawaiian Islands, Mexico’s Sea of Cortés, Columbia & Snake Rivers and Coastal Washington & British Columbia.
The 84-page brochure, the largest yet for the company, matches a historical or notable figure to each itinerary with a short narrative tying them to the destination. Moving away from a detailed day-by-day schedule, itinerary descriptions instead tell a story of the voyage on an Active, Luxury or Heritage style of adventure.
“The brochure redesign emphasizes the flexible nature of our adventures while pulling together the activities, culture, wildlife and history that make these trips stand out,” said Tim Jacox, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Un-Cruise Adventures. “Travel agents can also reference our website for more details on each itinerary.”
Active Adventure cruises focus on adventure activities outside such as hiking, kayaking, paddle boarding and skiff excursions. Three expedition vessels—60 -guest Wilderness Adventurer, 76-guest Wilderness Explorer and Wilderness Discoverer—sail active adventure cruises in Southeast Alaska and Coastal Washington. Fares start from US$1,595 per person for both destinations. Most adventure activities from the vessel are included. Port charges, taxes, bar and massage are extra.
Luxury Adventure cruises combine soft adventure activities with extra amenities, shipboard comforts and more inclusions on board. Four yachts—22-guest Safari Quest, 36-guest Safari Explorer, 64-guest Safari Voyager and 86-guest Safari Endeavour—offer luxury adventure cruises in Alaska, Mexico’s Sea of Cortés, Hawaiian Islands and Coastal Washington and British Columbia. Inclusive fares start at US$2,495 per person and vary by destination and yacht.
History is brought to life on board and ashore on an inclusive Heritage Adventure cruise with crew in period costumes, character reenactments and shore tours to points of historical interest. Guests sailing aboard the newly-refurbished 88-guest S.S. Legacy, a replica coastal steamer, step back in time to the 1890’s on adventures along the Columbia and Snake Rivers or Southeast Alaska. Weeklong inclusive fares start at US$3,195 per person on the Rivers cruise and US$5,195 per person in Alaska. Tours designed to complement the lively historic portrayals on board are included in both destinations.
