Grand Circle Cruise Line's Chartered Ships
Our Small Ship Adventures in Panama and Antarctica feature ships that we’ve privately chartered for the exclusive use of our small groups. These vessels were carefully chosen to provide us with the best access to the historic Panama Canal and the seventh continent—while offering a consistently high level of comfort and convenience for our travelers.
Our Small Ship Adventure in Norway and Finland features a fleet of vessels that we charter for our travelers. While onboard these working vessels—which are an integral part of Norway’s maritime heritage—you’ll witness the country’s wondrous landscapes alongside locals and travelers from around the world.
