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.
