86-guest Safari Endeavour and 76-guest Wilderness Explorer go back in service after renovation on May 18, 2012 for a dual-boat christening event in Seattle and a summer season of un-cruise adventures in Alaska.
“We’ve invested in these two boats to ensure maximum comfort, adventure and unsurpassed value for our guests,” said Tim Jacox, executive vice president of sales and marketing. “Whether you choose the inclusive yacht or the expedition vessel, the value and quality of our un-cruise adventure package will be remarkable.”
In true maritime tradition, both boats will be welcomed into the fleet with a crack of champagne across the bow at a gathering of company executives, employees, friends and family on Friday, May 18, 2012. The 5:30 pm christening event is open to the public and will be held outside office headquarters at Seattle’s Fishermen’s Terminal.
The 86-guest Safari Endeavour gained four larger Commodore Suites during the renovation by merging eight former staterooms and adding new step-out balconies and Jacuzzi tubs. Four more stateroom categories include three Masters, 21 Commanders, 12 Captains and three Admirals, all with one or two outside view windows. All rooms have flatscreen TVs/DVDs and iPod docks.
The 76-guest Wilderness Explorer had staterooms refreshed with new décor, linens, flatscreen TVs/DVDs and iPod docks. Three cabin categories consist of 21 Trailblazer, 13 Pathfinder and 4 Explorer cabins. Bed configurations include twin or queen with many more made convertible during renovation.
