Springtime Prep for Alaska

03-19-2014

Spring officially begins tomorrow, March 20. That means the busy Alaska season is just around the corner. We'll have seven vessels sailing adventures in Alaska this summer.

All seven of these fine vessels are homeported in Seattle for the winter, though a few do other itineraries in spring and fall exploring coastal Washington and the Columbia & Snake Rivers.

At this time of year, we are deep in spring yard work readying the fleet for a full summer of fun. Work can run the gamut from routine hull inspections to adding shelving and replacing carpet. It's a mixed bag of work but one thing is sure, it's a busy time at the Seattle office, Fishermen's Terminal docks and local shipyards helping us with the work.

Here's a review of what we have going on.

Safari Endeavour: new carpet in lounge, 100 deck hallway and stairway; new bunk lighting in 100 cabins; a second massage room added reducing guest capacity to 84, awning added to balconies of Commodore Suites
