One of the nicest features of high end cruise lines is that most of them include all alcohol in their cruise price. Just walk up and order what you want (of course, there is an upcharge for premium brands). Champagne at 10 a.m.? Fine. A nightcap? Fine. No checks to sign. No bother. Most customers are willing to pay more for the convenience.
Think Seabourn, Silversea, SeaDream and now Crystal Cruises.
Some other lines include wine and beer with meals. Most river cruise lines do this and some mid-size lines.
But rarely does a moderately priced line add this convenience. So it is so refreshing that Blount Small Ship Adventures is going to introduce this amenity in 2013. Now, you can enjoy complimentary wine and beer with all onboard lunches and dinners when you sail on any 2013 Blount Small Ship Adventures cruise.
“We strive to give our travelers the best possible value in small ship cruising,” said Nancy Blount, President of Blount Small Ship Adventures. “We’ve always taken our guests where larger cruise ships simply can’t go, and now, complimentary wine and beer is yet another way we are enhancing the Blount cruise experience.”
But that is not all. Blount’s extremely rare (and extremely kind)”BYOB” policy is still in effect. This unique “bring your own bottle” policy gives passengers the freedom to enjoy their preferred beverages without a costly bar tab at the end of the trip. Mixers, snacks, barware, refrigeration, and bottle storage space are provided around the clock.
Kudos to Blount for adding to the customer experience!
