American Safari Cruises now has a new parent. The line's former CEO, Dan Blanchard, who headed the line from 2001 to October 2008, has formed InnerSea Discoveries, which purchased American Safari Cruises' assets and will begin operating the brand under its new parent organization beginning with the Alaska season. InnerSea Discoveries also said it plans to add several new brands to complement American Safari Cruises, which is known for its up-close-and-personal interactive sailings.
Now, under American Safari Cruises' "Alaska-Even More Beautiful At 50" promotion, travel agents who book an Alaska cruise before April 15 will save their clients $500 per person, receive their normal commission plus a $50 thank you, and will be entered in a late-April drawing for a free Alaska cruise.
This fall, the line is introducing new nine-day one-way cruises along the Columbia and Snake rivers on its flagship Safari Explorer. Details of which will be announced in late February.
