UnCruise Adventures adds additional Latin American destinations in 2020 with Belize, Guatemala and Colombia chosen for new adventure cruise routes. The line’s 2020 schedule of small ship cruises is open for booking with nine ships sailing in Alaska, Columbia and Snake Rivers, Coastal Washington, Mexico, Hawaii, Galápagos, Costa Rica, Panamá, Colombia, Belize and Guatemala.
Also new for 2020, travelers looking for an Alaska adventure can take advantage of an early bird savings offer and save up to $1,200 per couple when booked by December 13, 2019. In Hawaii, a transition to year-round operations in the islands adds additional summer departures.
