U.S. Overnight Small Boat Operators Push Congress for Help
Seattle-based UnCruise Adventures has stepped up discussions with Congress on behalf of the U.S. Overnight Passenger Small-Boat Operators Coalition. The coalition serves as a united voice to increase the visibility of domestic small boat operators, spotlight the industry's differences, and address the outmoded definition of cruise lines.
The coalition was launched in March after UnCruise Adventures CEO Dan Blanchard recognized the need to bring the industry together to create a new definition for small boat operators
The impact of Covid-19 on travel and cruise operators calls for a new strategy to cope with the current situation, the coalition said. The group feels that making clear what the differences in cruise ship size and the respective challenges of small boat operators are is a virtual necessity.
