Sailing Aug. 1, UnCruise Expects to be Only Alaska Operator This Season
CEO Capt. Dan Blanchard is set to welcome passengers aboard in Juneau on Saturday.
The US no-sail order applies only to overnight ships carrying 250 or more souls (passengers and crew) and, as a US-flag operator, UnCruise does not need to stop at a foreign port so it matters not that Canada isn't allowing cruise ships now. This is an entirely domestic itinerary.
Wilderness Adventurer will be embarking with 36 passengers and 30 crew. The five seven-night 'Glacier Bay Adventure' departures scheduled this summer sail round-trip Juneau and focus on nature and wilderness, with no stops at other communities. The company self-imposed a 66% occupancy cap and said occupancy is 'strong,' on that basis.
