Very friendly staff (everyone) the captain and all passengers the food was good the fruit and bread always freshly baked and top notch there was always plenty of food 24 hours a day complimentary soda,juices and snacks 24 hours a day being a small boat we were able to get into the ports and just walk off all of them except Nantucket.

The ports were great and the Captain was always available to answer ALL of our questions. The passengers for from as far away as France to local Dedham and Watertown MA I highly recommend Blount to anyone looking for great food and different ports that the big ships can not get into. WE had a larger cabin 54B which had plenty of room and a large window. You bring your own liquor so you save alot of money and you just put a label on it keep it in the shared refrigerator and no one ever touches yours .

Having cruised over 95 times I am amazed that I have missed such an incredible gem, BLOUNT small ships I have no negatives just remember it More is not luxury if you are looking for great ports and DO NOT want to get dressed up even at dinner than this is the line for you we LOVRD it and can not wait to go to Belize in February and all the towns from Boston to Florida and enjoy all the destinations no other ship goes to in 2013 with lunch and dinner you will get complimentary beer and wine with lunch and dinner. Look at there website and then call your travel agent to book a great vacation with Blount it will be a great adventure whichever one you decide I can not wait to experience them all and they are owned by a local family. Being a small ship they have many advantages and can stay later in ports and almost do whatever they need to keep the passengers like us VERY HAPPY I hop[e to sail real soon.
