Blount Small Ship Adventures has introduced three exclusive enrichment cruises for its popular Islands of New England cruise. In addition to the traditional cruise itinerary, guests may select an enriched cruise departure, offering optional excursions and activities specifically related to one of three special interests: Arts & Crafts; Food & Wine; and Native American History.
“We are pleased to add an extra layer of excitement and education to this already fantastic cruise by inviting our guests to select the enrichment cruise that caters to their interests and passions,” said Nancy Blount, President of Blount Small Ship Adventures. It’s almost like embarking on a custom cruise, with the itinerary designed just for you – but at a price our travelers will love. Plus, all eight departures now include a traditional lobster bake onboard the ship!”
