First Choice Outlines Cruise Plans

First Choice Holidays, which recently purchased INTRAV and Clipper Cruise Line has announced the formation of First Choice Expedition Cruising. The two upscale, expeditionary vessels of Clipper Cruise Line-the 122-passenger Clipper Adventurer and 128-passenger Clipper Odyssey—along with the two small ships operated by the First Choice Holidays—owned Australian travel company Peregrine, are being brought together under one management. First Choice said Clipper Cruise Line will continue with business as usual and independent operations of its two vessels through Oct. 31, 2006, and once it comes under the new structure, it will remain committed to the innovative small-ship itineraries for which the company is known.
