Cruise On Our Small Ships 

Small ship cruising means finding adventure in small towns. on isolated beaches. And in the friendships that always seem to form onboard. One dinner, one shared sunset and one great conversation at a time.  Our small ships were built with the destination in mind -- each vessel featuring a retractable pilot, a 6 ½ foot draft to cruise shallow waterways and a bow ramp that allows for easy disembarkation on beaches and remote locations.

Only Blount’s ships can help you explore America’s great waterways, like New York’s Erie Canal, a waterway that many thought could not be navigated by a cruise ship. Thanks to the retractable pilot house invented by BSSA founder and ship builder Luther Blount, Blount’s cruise ships slip under the famous low bridges of the Erie Canal, past small towns and historic port villages, deep into the heart of America’s past. Blount is the only over night cruise line able to offer signature itineraries from New York to Chicago and Montreal. Other Blount itineraries feature the Great Lakes, New England Islands, Atlantic Coastal Waterway and Caribbean Islands. 

Cruise Small Ship - The Grande Mariner

The Grande Mariner

Commissioned in 1998 and built by Blount in 1998, the Grande Mariner starts most years in the Caribbean before making her way up to Montreal, just in time for fall foliage season. She was completely refurbished in 2010, with totally new cabin configurations, including new décor,  ashrooms, furniture in the staterooms and a renovated lounge. So if you want to take in a few rays on the sun deck, relax and enjoy the vista-view lounge, or just have a few quiet moments in your cabin as the sea drifts past your open picture window, the Grande Mariner is ready.
