UnCruise Adventures Nominated Once Again in Travel Age West’s 16th Annual WAVE Awards 

The Public Can Vote Online in Support of the Cruise Line and Travel Age West’s 2021 WAVE Awards Editor’s Pick Nominees  

JUNEAU, AK., August 5th, 2021 – The small boat adventure company, UnCruise Adventures, announced its nomination as the Small Ship Cruise Line Providing Best Travel Advisor Support and Best River Cruise Line for U.S. Sailings in 2021. Being nominated by the leading trade media outlet Travel Age West is held as a high honor and is a welcome return to increasing normality in the industry. Voting will run through the month of August culminating in an in-person WAVE Awards Gala October 7th, 2021. 

“The travel industry is finally emerging from a very challenging time, and we want to help our readers acknowledge the companies that have stood by advisors and supported travel no matter what,” said Kenneth Shapiro, Publisher, and Editor-in-Chief of Travel Age West. “We are also excited to bring back the in-person awards dinner this fall. The WAVE Awards have become a pillar of the tourism industry in the West, and we can’t wait to see our partners again and celebrate the return of travel with them.” 

UnCruise Adventures returned to normal operations on May 7th, and has completed 51 successful sailings in Alaska, the most any small boat company has provided worldwide in 2021. The adventure brand provides multi-activity multi-generational explorations of rich tapestries in 8 destinations.

“We are honored to be part of the distinguished awards and our work with travel advisors through the past 25 years, especially their support during the past 15 months.” Dan Blanchard shares about the nomination. “We congratulate all of the outstanding nominees and express our gratitude for being nominated especially after a restart in a challenging environment. We are back and invite guests to experience everything our vessels, crew, and destinations have to offer.” 

The UnCruise Adventures brand continues to upend trends and has experienced a rise in shorter-term bookings and a demand for adventure travel in 2021, resulting in a strong return to summer travel. When talking about the vote of excellence awards Blanchard says, “We look to set the standard in our industry and this recognition highlights our work. UnCruise has shown time and time again how resilient we can be, and throughout this pandemic, that has not changed. We are honored.”
