AAA Sojourns and InnerSea Discoveries bring small-ship adventure to cruising. The maneuverability of expedition-size ships and yachts gives you unparalleled access to wilderness areas in ways you may not know were possible on a cruise. Explore secluded coves and see eye-to-eye with marine mammals and other wildlife. Onboard naturalists and experts open your eyes to the destinations, animals and sea life that you encounter. In fact, these small-ship cruises are so unlike what you'd expect from a traditional cruise that InnerSea Discoveries has coined the term "Un-Cruise" to describe these unique adventures.
Whether you want to explore Alaska's Eastern Coves, Western Coves, Northern Passages or Glacier Bay, your intimate "un-cruise" is sure to be unforgettable. From navigating deftly into coves accessible only to small ships where wildlife abounds, to feeling like you’ve struck it rich on a Heritage Adventure, these Alaska cruises offer the level of adventure, history and elegance that’s right for you. Select a 7-night sailing into Glacier Bay or the inner reaches of the eastern or western coves. Bump up the experience to a 14-night "Ultimate Bays & Fjords" cruise. Or go all out with a 21-night "Ultra Adventure," including three days in Glacier Bay National Park with a park ranger as your guide.
InnerSea Discoveries offers Three Cruise Styles
Active Adventures – Choose from three expedition boats that are made for spirited exploration of natural beauty and wildlife. They come outfitted with all the gear you need for stand-up paddling, kayaking, snorkeling and more.
Luxury Adventures - On each of three luxury yachts, you will find equipment similar to that on the Active Adventures ships. But you’ll also partake of fine wines, premium spirits, microbrew beers and gourmet dining, plus upscale amenities and services, such as massage and suites with Jacuzzi tubs.
Heritage Adventures - The S.S. Legacy, a replica Victorian steamer, takes you back in time both with steamship- era décor and tales told by Legacy Leaders onboard. History also comes alive onshore, as you visit native peoples and encounter costumed historical figures.
