Having sailed on and enjoyed the line’s Safari Endeavour (pictured above) in Alaska and S.S. Legacy along the Columbia and Snake Rivers, its exciting to see that Un-Cruise Adventures is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year with a number of festivities and specials.
The company began as American Safari Cruises with just one yacht in 1996 before growing and expanding again from three to eight ships and from four to eight destinations beginning in 2009. Then in 2013, the line rebranded as Un-Cruise Adventures, in the same vein as 7 Up’s famed un-cola campaign. Now it is clearly defined as a premium adventure expedition cruise line that offers various levels of activity and relaxation.
As for 2016, this year is marked also by the introduction of cruises in the Galápagos, Costa Rica and Panama in addition to its existing lineup of destinations including Alaska; coastal Washington; the Columbia & Snake Rivers; Hawaii; British Columbia, Canada and Mexico. In celebration of the anniversary, Un-Cruise will unveil a number of new perks and offers as described by the line below:
- New chairman’s theme cruises invite guests to journey with a company owner and leader
- A celebration toast and anniversary dessert spread aboard every cruise in 2016
- Two cruise giveaways via an essay contest starting February 26
- Limited edition 20th anniversary logo items onboard
- A donation to Tourism Cares for each guest visit to Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska in honor of the National Parks centennial
- 20th anniversary savings on select cruise departures updated throughout the year
Additionally, in appreciation of its travel partners, the line will give away four complimentary seven-day cruises for two to agents, one each quarter.
The line explains, “every agent with a booking made between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2016 is automatically entered. A random drawing will be held each quarter. Each FIT or group booking counts as one entry, and each quarter will feature a different cruise prize with the first quarter giving away an Alaska cruise and then following with cruises in Costa Rica & Panama, Mexico and the Columbia & Snake Rivers. Details are available in the travel agent portal at un-cruise.com.”
“After five years of unprecedented growth, we’re proud to celebrate this milestone alongside our trusted travel partners,” said Tim Jacox, president and COO. “We wouldn’t be where we are today without the support of travel professionals.”
