It’s a Jungle Out There

American safari cruises offers new family accommodations

By: Marissa Tinloy

With the increasing popularity of multi-generational family cruising, American Safari Cruises has incorporated triple accommodations in the redesign of its luxury yacht, the Safari Explorer. Set to debut in May with voyages in Alaska, the multimillion dollar renovation of the 36-guest ship will provide more comfortable and convenient accommodations for large family groups.

Of the 145-foot Safari Explorer’s 18 staterooms, four will have a convertible couch-bed, two will be top-deck Commodore suites with a separate bedroom, and two will be oversized Admiral staterooms on the main deck. American Safari recommends these redesigned rooms to couples traveling with a teenager or elderly parent.

With American Safari Cruises, triple accommodations for the four staterooms are priced at 15% less than a regular per person, double-occupancy fare. Per person triple fares for the Commodore suites begin at $6,595 for Alaska and $6,295 for Hawaii. Per person triple fares for the Admiral staterooms begin at $5,495 for Alaska and $5,195 for Hawaii.

The Safari Explorer includes an on-deck hot tub, fitness area, complimentary massages, sauna and yoga classes, a wine library for special tastings, two certified naturalists, a two-to-one guest ratio and more. All private transfers and from-yacht activities, such as kayaking and boat exploration, are included.

The Safari Explorer will begin inter-island Hawaiian cruising in December.
