The Leader in Small Ship and River Cruising Worldwide
Since we first assembled our fleet in 1998, Grand Circle Cruise Line has been committed to providing discovery-rich vacations around the world while making the most of your travel dollar—a combination of experience and value that sets us apart as the leader in the travel industry. We realize that international travel is an investment—and that every one of your travel dollars count. With full-time staff and offices in the regions you visit, we’re able to work with local partners to get the most for your money. We own and operate our worldwide fleet of award-winning ships, enabling us to create and control your experience—from the gracious hospitality of our crew to the comfort and convenience of our vessels. And, we refurbish and maintain our ships every season which allows us to keep our costs and per diems down.
Our worldwide fleet of privately owned vessels—many of which are award-winning—were custom-built or extensively refurbished especially to meet the needs of our travelers. Whether you’re cruising an iconic European river, sailing the storied waters of the Mediterranean, or taking a transatlantic voyage on from the tip of South America to Europe, you’ll enjoy the warm camaraderie of your exclusively American fellow travelers. Share stories in your ship’s welcoming lounge or relax on the Sun Deck with a cool drink. Enjoy single, open seating; freshly prepared, regionally-inspired cuisine; and unparalleled service in our window-lined dining room. And take comfort in knowing that your ship’s professional staff—all fluent in English—will always be on hand and at your service.
The fleet is part of Grand Circle's family of travel companies, which also includes Grand Circle Travel and Overseas Adventure Travel, both of which provide unique international vacations to Americans age 50 and older. Since 1992, the non-profit Grand Circle Foundation has pledged or donated $97 million to more than 300 educational, humanitarian and cultural organizations worldwide, including 100 schools, in 50 countries.
A travel vacation should not only be an unforgettable experience, but offer solid peace of mind. That’s why USTOA created a consumer protection fund which protects consumers who book with our Active Members.Learn More
