Uncruise Adventures Adds New Itineraries To 2018 Alaska Cruise Schedule

May 5, 2017 Cruise Deals No Comments Email Email

UnCruise Adventures’ newly released schedule of 2018 Alaska cruises has added more visits to Glacier Bay National Park, and seven new itineraries.

Also new in 2018, the adventure outpost of Haines is added to five itineraries. A full day of activities in Haines includes a float trip down the Chilkat River (on most itineraries), a guided hike, bikes for riding into town and a shipboard presentation by local Chilkat Tlingit members.

“Seven of our ten itineraries visit Glacier Bay National Park in 2018,” said Captain Dan Blanchard, CEO. “There are many outstanding wilderness areas in Southeast Alaska, but Glacier Bay is iconic. With multiple days in the park, we’re able to actively explore more, including access to rarely visited, pristine outback areas.”

Travellers visiting Glacier Bay can see the sights up close by small ship—sea lion haul-out at Marble Islands, tidewater glaciers, mountain goats at Gloomy Knob—and often stop at Bartlett Cove Visitor Center for a short hike. A Glacier Bay National Park ranger boards the ship to provide narration in the park and two or three day cruises in the park have time to explore deeper with guided kayak and hiking excursions.

Alaska Yacht—Bears, Bergs & Bushwhacking – New in 2018
The 22-guest Safari Quest sails 15 departures on an itinerary targeted to guests seeking out new adventures in rarely visited wilderness areas. The eight-night itinerary out of Petersburg in Alaska begins with one night in Petersburg, followed by a choice of fishing or flightseeing in the morning. Four wilderness areas are explored—South Baranof, Admiralty, Tebenkof, Stikine-LeConte Glacier—plus a visit to the native village of Kake and a guided tour to the Fortress of the Bear on Admiralty Island. 

Alaska’s Glaciers & Whales – New in 2018

The 88-guest S.S. Legacy and 84-guest Safari Endeavour sail 13 departures from Juneau to Sitka and see glaciers in Tracy Arm or Endicott Arm, Thomas Bay, Baird Glacier, Le Conte Glacier, Ideal Cove, Frederick Sound, Baranof Island, Sergius Narrows and the native village of Kake.

Whales, Wildlife & Glaciers – New in 2018
The S.S. Legacy and Safari Endeavour sail 13 departures on an upper Inside Passage focused   itinerary from Sitka to Juneau. This route explores Krestof Sound, Icy Strait, Glacier Bay National Park, Chichagof Island and Lynn Canal. A day in Haines includes a float trip down the Chilkat River, a guided hike, bikes for riding into town and a shipboard presentation by local Chilkat Tlingit members. The two itineraries are combinable for a new two-week Alaska Glacier Cruise – Ultimate Expedition.

Alaska’s Inside Passage & San Juans Cruise – New in 2018
Five ships sail nine departures on spring and fall transits between Seattle and Juneau (and reverse). Two additional days in 2018 create a 14-day itinerary with added days spent exploring Washington’s Olympic National Park and San Juan Islands, as well as Alaska’s Glacier Bay National Park.

Glacier Bay National Park Adventure Cruise – New in 2018
The 60-guest Wilderness Adventurer sails 19 departures roundtrip from Juneau with three days in Glacier Bay National Park for travelers intent on exploring lesser visited nooks and crannies with more opportunities for hiking

and kayaking in the park. It also explores Icy Strait and spends a day  in Haines for included adventures ashore: bikes, hiking, a float trip on the river and a shipboard presentation by local Chilkat Tlingit members. 

Every Alaska cruise includes adventure activities in remote wilderness—hiking, kayaking, paddle boarding, skiff excursions and whale watching. With few port calls and flexible itineraries, travelers spend the week exploring

remote wilderness and searching for wildlife. Knowledgeable expedition guides lead tours and provide interpretation along the way.

Rates for weeklong Alaska cruises begin at $2,995 per person based on double occupancy and include fresh, innovative meals; all beverages including alcohol; adventure activities; transfers day of cruise; hot tub; fitness equipment; a complimentary massage is available on select ships.
