Blount food & wine cruises highlight New England islands

Blount food & wine cruises highlight New England islands
Blount Small Ship Adventures’ 'Food & Wine Discovery' itinerary through the islands of New England this summer showcases the culinary classics of Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, Block Island and Newport, among other ports. Optional tours through the local vineyards and wineries are available.

For a limited time, travelers can save up to 20%, or up to $600 per person, on all departure dates.

The six-night cruise sails from Warren, R.I., on June 24 and July 13 aboard Grande Mariner, and July 18 aboard Grande Caribe. The ships will navigate through the islands of Cuttyhunk, Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard and New Bedford in Massachusetts, and to Rhode Island through Block Island and Newport, before returning to Warren.

Each port incorporates an optional tour of the local vineyards and breweries, including the popular Cisco Brewery in Nantucket and Westport Rivers Winery in New Bedford. In Newport, travelers will have the opportunity to participate in a gourmet walking tour.

Lobster will be on the shipboard menu each day along with a traditional, New England-style lobster bake en route to Newport. Local entertainers will come aboard during the evenings in Martha’s Vineyard and New Bedford.
