There's Still Time to Book an Alaska Small Ship Cruise

Responding to the trend of last minute summer vacation bookings, small ship cruise expert AdventureSmith Explorations just announced that there is still good availability on many of the company’s summer cruises in Alaska. In past years, by mid-May remaining space is usually at a premium. With a slow economy however, consumers benefit with an increase in availability, cruise options and even booking incentives.

“We are the recognized leader in Alaska small ship cruising,” says Todd Smith, founder and director of AdventureSmith Explorations. “We offer the most selection and more first-hand knowledge than anyone else in the business and when our partners have last minute summer space to fill, they turn to us.”

AdventureSmith Explorations’ partners in Alaska include Lindblad Expeditions, InnerSea Discoveries and American Safari Cruises, Alaskan Dream Cruises, Alaska Wildland Adventures and a host of smaller companies and ships off the radar of most travelers and travel agents.

Smith reports good space availability for summer 2012 still remains on the following Alaska cruises, with the caveat that consumers need to call for information and reservations very soon:
