Travelers dreaming of white sands and balmy breezes this winter have an exciting reason to celebrate the New Year.  Blount Small Ship Adventures’ latest promotion offers discounts up to $1,000 per couple on select sailings to new booking passengers on Caribbean cruises this winter.

The 2011 Caribbean discount applies to five exciting cruise adventures, to destinations including Belize, St. Maarten and Antigua, the Virgin Islands, Guatemala, Honduras and the Bahamas.  New travelers will save $500-$1,000 per couple, depending on the cruise selected, when they book an eligible 2011 Caribbean voyage.  Departures begin in early January and space is limited, so travelers are encouraged to book early!

“This special offer is our way of encouraging folks to give themselves a break from the winter weather” said Nancy Blount, President of Blount Small Ship Adventures.  “The Caribbean is such a beautiful part of the world, and we want to help people to do more than just go there, but to really experience it in a way that other cruises don’t allow.”

All of the company’s vessels feature a shallow draft and retractable pilot house, allowing guests to visit sights and navigate waterways that big ships cannot reach.  Travelers will be delighted when they step directly from the ship into the sparkling waters of a secluded lagoon or unspoiled beach during a signature bow landing.  Guests can view the wonders of the sea on a glass-bottom boat ride, or explore at their own speed with onboard kayaks and bicycles.  Optional excursions to local attractions add excitement to the expedition, and guests can enjoy their time onboard with photography workshops, lectures from onboard naturalists.  Chef-prepared meals and newly refurbished private staterooms are offered on every itinerary.

With the chill of winter approaching, there’s no better time to get away to the warmth and beauty of the Caribbean!  The 2011 Caribbean discount is available on select cabins and dates.
