Grand Circle Cruise Line announces  new small ship itineraries in 2017

Grand Circle Cruise Line, the leader in small ship cruising worldwide, announced four new small ship itineraries for 2017 today.  The itineraries will operate along the Mediterranean and the Adriatic, cruising along the coastlines of Italy, Malta, Slovenia, and Croatia aboard Grand Circle’s award-winning, 50-passenger sister ships—the M/V Athena, M/V Arethusa, and M/V Artemis.  Each itinerary includes international airfare from New York and offers limited free Single Supplements for solo travelers.

 

“We are excited to offer itineraries that explore a popular region of the world through a popular mode of travel—small ship,” said CEO Alan E. Lewis.  “Our 50-passenger ships can access small ports that larger ships cannot, and our travelers will be able to explore the cities, towns, and villages beyond these ports to engage firsthand with local people, their cultures, and ways of life.”
