The small-ship expedition cruise line Un-Cruise Adventures released its 2016 itineraries, heading south. The new voyages are highlighted by first-time calls at the Galapagos Islands, Panama and Costa Rica.
From February through November 2016, the 48-passenger ms La Pinta will offer eight 9-night sailings. The itinerary includes a 2-day pre-cruise stay in Ecuador (Quito), followed by a week-long voyage to the islands. Between October 2016 and April 2017, the 64-passenger ms Safari Voyager will feature 29 departure dates with "off the beaten path" cruise ports in Costa Rica and a full Panama Canal transit.
The Galapagos Islands are best for snorkeling, glass-bottom boat tours and tour extensions to Machu Picchu or the Amazon rainforest. Those on the Panama and Costa Rica itinerary can explore Curu National Wildlife Refuge via watersports and jungle hikes.
Un-Cruise Adventures will continue to offer voyages in the Pacific Northwest, Southeast Alaska, Columbia and Snake Rivers, Hawaii and Mexico's Sea of Cortes.
