Un-Cruise offers agents a little extra


Travel agents booking groups of eight or more travellers on Un-Cruise Adventures’ S.S. Legacy in Alaska for travel during summer 2014 receive the ninth berth free, among other incentives.

The S.S. Legacy, a replica coastal steamer, sails Heritage Adventure cruises from June-August with a focus on the history of the Klondike Gold Rush.

As an added incentive for groups, a free berth is earned with every eight berths booked up to a maximum of three with a group of 24. Travel agents have the option of using the value of the free berth as a savings shared by the group. Groups booked by Feb. 28 also receive an adventure savings of $300 p.p.

Un-Cruise Adventures’ executive vice-president of sales and marketing, Tim Jacox said, “Travel agents have supported our outdoor recreation niche amazingly well. Now the S.S. Legacy provides an opportunity for agents to expand their Un-Cruise Adventures client base. Staying within our proven small group capacity of under 90 berths, the S.S. Legacy focuses on historical re-enactments and port visits. To highlight this new niche within our eight vessel fleet, we are introducing special value-added offers.”

From June 15 through Aug. 17, 10 departures of a new Alaska’s Golden History cruise bring the Klondike Gold Rush alive. The cruise visits Wrangell, Petersburg, Sitka, Glacier Bay National Park, Haines and Skagway; Frederick Sound and Icy Strait are prime whale watching territory. An 11-night Gold Rush Legacy cruise between Seattle and Juneau (and reverse) will be offered June 11 and Aug. 17. Highlights include guided tours in port, whale watching, viewing glaciers in Glacier Bay, discovering native Tlingit culture and exploring scenic waterways by coastal steamer. Inclusive rates start at US$5,195 p.p.
