Adventure Cruising Payback

By guest blogger Steve Newman

Regarded by many as the leader in eco/adventure cruising, it has become a new tradition of Zegrahm to make a donation—in the name of their loyal travellers, travel advisors, and friends—at the end of each year to an organisation that is doing charitable work in a region the company visits, or for a cause they support.

This year, they decided to leave the decision-making up to their guests. Zegrahm chose three organisations and asked their travellers, via e-mail, to choose their favourite cause and then divided up the donation dollars based on the number of votes each one received. They are pleased to announce the following allocations for their 2010 “World of Thanks” donation:

• Children in the Wilderness – 46%
• Henderson Island Project – 22%
• Save Our Seas – 31%

More information about the company, its cruises and their World of Thanks charities can be found on http://www.zeco.com/ or for more information on adventure cruising, contact the specialist at The Cruise Line Ltd.
