Uncruise returns to sailing in Alaska

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - UnCruise Adventures has announced that due to the high demand for its sailings, it will be restarting its Alaska sailings from Juneau on May 7.

    According to a press release, the cruise line modified three Pacific Northwest sailings after Washington State COVID protocols affected departure dates.

    UnCruise said that instead of canceling, it decided to save the adventure cruises of dozens of guests offering them an alternative itinerary out of Juneau.

    May 7 will kick off the company’s first full sailing out of Juneau.

    The full Alaska season will include six itineraries of 22-86 guests, with a fully vaccinated crew.

    UnCruise’s recent policy requires all guests to provide proof of vaccination to embark to Alaska.
