AdventureSmith Explorations Announces Significant Savings On Two Expedition Cruises in Summer 2011


Tahoe City, CA, April 6, 2011 – Airline vouches valued at up to $1000 per guest mean virtually free air travel to access one Alaska cruise this summer. A 25 percent discount on a polar expedition cruise program signifies savings of up to $1925 per person (double occupancy).

 

These offers are available exclusively through AdventureSmith Explorations, www.adventuresmithexplorations.com/, the active travel company that secures matches between adventure-seeking clients and a treasure trove of small, expedition ships.

 

The air voucher applies to bookings on the 32-passenger vessel Island Spirit that has received among the highest percentage of positive traveler comments for any Alaska small ship cruise, said Todd Smith, AdventureSmith Explorations founder and owner. The cruise itinerary explores the rugged shorelines and remote coves and bays Southeast Alaska's Inside Passage.

 

Island Spirit is the only US Coast Guard-licensed small ship to power both guest and public areas by batteries at night which means there’s no noise from engines or generators while anchored in quiet Alaskan bays. Its nine-day cruise stops at authentic Alaskan villages including Tenakee Springs, Baranof Springs and Petersburg. The per person, double occupancy rate is $4,495. See:

“This is Alaska’s best small ship value,” said Smith, adding that the cruise plies the summer feeding ground of humpback whales. Departures begin May 1 and end in late August.

 

Sailing further north this summer, there are 25 percent savings on eight-day weekly (July only) departures of Realm of the Polar Bear Arctic cruises aboard the 124-passenger M/S Expedition, also represented by AdventureSmith Explorations. A per person (double) rate is from $3,999 for an adventure cruise above the Arctic Circle to the remote island of Spitsbergen (within the Norwegian Svalbard archipelago) and into icy landscapes frequented by the world's largest land carnivore - the polar bear.
