UnCruise Adventures Touts Longest Cruise Season in Alaska History. More Departures Than Any Cruise Line.

Seven Small Adventure Ships and Fourteen Itineraries, April to October

JUNEAU, AK, January 31st,, 2022 – The leading Alaska small ship cruise line continues its successful restart from 2021, offering more departures and ships in Alaska’s Great Land than any other cruise line. The American-owned crewed, and operated brand celebrated a strong comeback in 2021 with 4,400 Alaska guests and will restart its Alaska season on April 8th with sailings into October. These world-class adventures range from 7-14 nights, with fourteen itineraries and seven vessels to choose from.

The longest cruise season in Alaska history will start on April 8th and continue to October 8th (from $2,995 per person). “We love making history! April, May, and early June are the driest months of the year in Juneau, and due to our maritime climate are not unduly cold. This combined with meeting Alaska towns and people before the summer rush makes the early season a treat for those who love to explore and step out of the norm.” shares Captain Dan Blanchard, Owner and CEO, whose home is in Juneau.

The 2022 season will also see the much-anticipated return of the 84-guest Safari Endeavour to Alaska. After reconditioning, this handsome vessel returns to the Juneau to Sitka 7-night Northern Passages and Glacier Bay National Park route. The company has seen an outpouring of support, with excited comments from guests and crew concerning the Safari Endeavour’s return to the Alaska fleet. The ship is under the command of Captain Adam Beeman.

UnCruise led the Alaska cruise industry in 2021 with its first vessel underway on May 1st. At a time large ships were forced to cancel operations until July of 2021. The award-winning small ship cruise line also originated the first 100% fully vaccinated and pretested cruise in the world. Taking the lead is part of UnCruise Adventures DNA and the company continues that approach as one of the first to implement the vaccination booster requirement.

Every Alaskan itinerary boasts all-inclusive small group expeditions with daily activities delivering responsible small ship cruising to guests from around the world. Small adventure ships range from 22-86 guests.
