Fundraisers to Buoy Crew During the Cruise Shutdown | Travel Weekly
UnCruise Adventures organized a pandemic relief fund in December to provide micro-grants to qualifying crew members and small family businesses impacted by Covid-19 in Panama, Costa Rica, Mexico's Baja region, Peru, Belize and the Galapagos.
"These countries do not have typical unemployment support or disaster relief programs as extensive as the United States," wrote UnCruise CEO and owner Dan Blanchard. "I know of highly educated crew members selling fruit along the highway, trying to survive. While dashed travel dreams can be disappointing to us, it is devastating to families who depend on our boats and guests to make ends meet."
