Grand Circle operates an award-winning fleet of 60 small ships, internationally recognized for its blend of value and world-class adventure. Grand Circle Cruise Line serves both the Grand Circle Travel and Overseas Adventure Travel brands throughout Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America. The fleet contains three 50-passenger ocean ships, 12 river ships, and several motor cruisers and chartered yachts.
For eight years, Condé Nast Traveler readers have chosen the Grand Circle fleet for the magazine's esteemed "Gold List" of cruise lines. The same readers also named Grand Circle Cruise Line as the "World's Best River Cruise Line" from 2012 to 2015—while ranking Grand Circle's entire privately owned fleet (15 ships) among the "100 Top Cruise Ships in the World" for 2014. Grand Circle was also cited as the "World's Leading River Cruise Operator" at the 2008 World Travel Awards. These, and many other recognitions from satisfied travelers and publications over the past decade, are a testament to the fleet's value and growing prestige since its founding.
A portion of each cruise's proceeds benefits the Grand Circle Foundation, and many Grand Circle travelers are inspired to give above and beyond. The Foundation receives hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations every year from travelers—a testament to the moving power of people-to-people cultural engagement.
