Austin Adventures Catches Small Ship Cruising Wave: Doubles Cruise Itineraries for 2019

1 Minute Read

One travel company that’s riding the small ship cruising wave for 2019 has doubled its cruise itineraries from six to 12, all with season-specific weekly departures.

By expanding its division of Small Ship Adventure Cruising opportunities, Austin Adventures is satisfying requests of its highly loyal base of repeat guests who in 2018 accounted for (along with past guest referrals) nearly 60 percent of its business. Some of these alumni have traveled between 10 and 20 times over the past 30+ years with Austin Adventures.

Over last few years the concept of small ship cruising has “taken off,” says Dan Austin, Founder and President. “Our cruise itineraries are expedition-oriented, which means that because the ships are small we can bring our guests over the water onto often-unvisited shores, surrounded by pristine wilderness. We have impressed people with our land-based adventures for years. We’re always looking for ways less traveled where we believe the best surprises and experiences are to be found.”

A full roster of 2019 land and sea active-vacation itineraries is available in a new 60-page catalog that can be ordered (or downloaded) online.
