March 30, 2017

1.) Visit the best of the New England Islands without dealing with sold out accommodations or ferry transportation.

Unpack just once and enjoy hassle-free exploration of these beautiful islands. Enjoy a comfortable cabin and three delicious meals a day. We will take care of the rest!

2.) Eat as much mouthwatering lobster and seafood as your heart desires. Need we say more?

On a Blount cruise, lobster is served on the menu every day. New England seafood is hard to top! The crew even organizes an old fashioned yankee clam bake.  


3.) Explore the vibrant nightlife on many of the New England Islands. The fun doesn’t stop when the sun goes down!

During the summer months, Newport, Block Island and Martha’s Vineyard are the islands to enjoy. You will find world-class restaurants, musical entertainment and shopping just a short cab ride or walk away from our ship in port.  While docked, guests have 24/7 access on and off the vessel in port. Enjoy a care-free evening without having to worry about what time to return to the vessel.
