Who's Advocating For Big-Ship Cruising in Alaska? Small Cruise Lines | Travel Weekly
Small, U.S.-flagged cruise vessels may be the only ones able to sail in Alaska this summer, after Canada last week extended its cruise ban by one year, a move that could effectively kill the big-ship Alaska cruising season.
And while those small-ship companies may benefit as a result, it doesn't mean they're happy about it. At least two of those lines, Alaskan Dream Cruises and UnCruise Adventures, have called for the U.S. government to grant exemptions to the Passenger Vessel Services Act (PVSA) to allow large cruise ships to sail this summer.
