American Safari Cruises Offers $200 Savings on Alaska Sailings


American Safari Cruises, to kick off its first season in Alaska in 2012, is offering savings of $200 per person savings for guests who book a cruise on the 86-passenger Safari Endeavour by Nov. 30, 2011. From June through August, the yacht-style ship sails weeklong “Discoverers’ Glacier Country” cruises roundtrip from Juneau, Alaska.

The inclusive cruise aboard the newly renovated ship spends two days exploring inside Glacier Bay National Park. Guided hiking and kayaking trips with park rangers and on board expedition leaders afford guests a view of the park and its wildlife. Other areas explored include Icy Strait, Chichagof Island, Baranof Island, Frederick Sound, Thomas Bay, Ford’s Terror and Endicott Arm. Rates start at $4,795 per person double.

The travel credit is also available on the two-week “The Famed Inside Passage” cruise from Seattle to Juneau on May 27, 2012 and Juneau to Seattle on Sept. 2, 2012. Rates start at $6,095 per person double. “The travel credit is intended to help guests with airfare,” said Tim Jacox, executive vice president of sales and marketing. “It’s our gift to guests booking the Safari Endeavour which we’ve recently added to our fleet.”

The $200 per person credit is available on new bookings made from now through Nov. 30, 2011. The travel savings is for guests sailing aboard the 86-guest Safari Endeavour in Alaska from May through September 2012.

The Safari Endeavour will be fresh from an extensive renovation project. Five stateroom categories include three Master, 21 Commander, 12 Captain, three Admiral and four Commodore Suites. The suites will be created by merging two former staterooms and adding new step-out balconies. All staterooms have one or two outside view windows. Other amenities being added to the ship include two massage rooms, two hot tubs, sauna, exercise equipment, a wine bar and a library. An all-American crew of 34 will give the ship a guest-crew ratio of 2.5 to 1.
