Blount Small Ship Adventures passengers choose Blount because of the casualness of the cruise and because of the unique itineraries offered. The cruises offer an opportunity for passengers to immerse themselves in the culture and style of the areas visited.  Beer and wine are complimentary with lunch and dinner.. Dining is open seating at one service. Freshly baked pastries are available all day long.   Guests can bring their own bottles for mixed drinks.

Blount Small Ship Adventures are truly small ships with only 88 passengers per vessel. There are two ships:  The Grande Caribe and the Grande Mariner.  Room sizes range from 75 Sq. Ft. to 114 Sq. Ft.  Some rooms have separate showers.  Other rooms have showers between the head and sink with a wrap around shower curtain.  Some rooms have fixed double beds and others have two lower berths.

There’s no white glove dining service, no formal attire, and no luxurious cabins. But there is a 180-degree vista-view lounge —the ideal place to get to know your fellow passengers as glorious, scenic landscapes unfold before you. Go upstairs, and you’ll find the upper deck, the perfect place to catch a breathtaking view, or catch a few rays.

These small ships cater to guests who enjoy the exploration of destinations and who enjoy meeting other travelers who are like-minnded.

Itineraries are subject to change if necessary for the well being of the ship and passengers. Transfers are available for a nominal cost.  Deposits required to hold a room are $500 per person with final payments due 90 days prior to departure.  Full payment required within 90 days.
