Blount Small Ship Adventures
Blount Small Ship Adventures operates a fleet of 2 innovative expedition-style small ships that offer up to 96 guests a unique experience along some of North America's most scenic waterways. Navigating areas usually only accessible via a small private yacht, this destination-oriented travel experience allows guests to truly explore a destination. Enjoy a casual, un-crowded and friendly atmosphere where camaraderie and a common interest for discovery abound.
Swan Hellenic Cruises
U.K.-based Swan Hellenic Cruises has perfected the art of "discovery" cruising aboard small ships; 2014 marked the line's 60th birthday. A cruise aboard the MV Minerva will be a "journey of the mind," with well-crafted itineraries to interesting ports of call, evenings and overnight port stays, high quality shore excursions and enrichment programs featuring distinguished speakers and entertainers.
Voyages to Antiquity
Voyages to Antiquity's single mid-size ship, the Aegean Odyssey, offers cruise itineraries to the sites and archeological treasures that remain from some of the world's greatest civilizations. The Odyssey is an older vessel that began life as a car ferry; it has been tastefully reconstructed to create a sophisticated but casual ambiance with upgraded staterooms and public areas. There is no onboard glitz whatsoever; the decor is meant to relax rather than to impress.
