Visit Plymouth on a Blount Small Ship Cruise!

In 2020 we celebrate as a nation, the 400th Anniversary of the Mayflower Voyage and the founding of Plymouth Colony.

Nestled between Boston and Cape Cod is a destination best known for the Mayflower Pilgrim story, but history is just the beginning of the visit to New England’s oldest settled community. As we cruise New England, we are excited to introduce you to America’s Hometown Plymouth, welcoming our passengers just as it did four centuries ago with a blend of history, recreation, arts and adventure.

The 400th anniversary of the Mayflower voyage will commemorate the legacy of the passengers and crew who undertook the epic journey inspired by an unquenchable desire for freedom; and for whom the journey promised newfound liberty.

How could anything be more delightful than hopscotching your way across the islands of New England in the summer? New England is pretty in any season but imagine seeing its full blossoming glory from the deck of our cruise ship as we set sail out of New York City or Boston.

From our ship, you’ll see rocky cliffs that seem to plunge into the surf, as well as brave lighthouses that stand ready to warn to sailors of the perils of the sea. And, of course, at every port, you will find exquisitely delicious New England seafood. Lobster, scallops, fried clams and authentic New England clam chowder—it doesn’t get any better than this! Welcome aboard!
