Small Alaska Cruises Are Booking Up - The Cordova Times
Canada’s decision to impose a year-long ban on cruise ships in Canadian waters is having a devastating impact on the big-ship industry, while small ship operators are seeing a surge in reservations beginning and ending in Alaska.
According to a reservations spokesperson for UnCruise Adventures, reservations are filling up quickly for the company’s small ship cruises in Southeast Alaska.
Lindblad Expeditions, Alaska Dream Cruises and American Cruise Lines are also busy taking reservations for small cruise travels.
Dan Blanchard, CEO of UnCruise Adventures, told the online publication Maritime Adventure that the company’s cruise ships will be able to transit Canadian waters under longstanding treaties between Canada and the United States.
