The Leader in Small Ship and River Cruising Worldwide
Worldwide Discovery at Extraordinary Value Since 1958

The M/S Provence was ranked #2 in Condé Nast Traveler’s “Top 40 River Cruise Ships in the World” 2014 Readers’ Poll

Designed specifically for the smaller waterways of France, Grand Circle’s M/S Provence provides a more intimate cruising experience. This river cruiser carries a maximum of just 46 Grand Circle Cruise Line travelers, with its own expert resident Program Director. That’s because we believe the picturesque villages and vineyards that make up the French countryside are best appreciated aboard a river ship that’s as relaxed as the region itself.
