Travel by Small Ship

Your Mediterranean small ships

Sail aboard our privately owned 50-passenger ships

On your travels in the Mediterranean—including the Aegean and Adriatic—you’ll be traveling aboard one of Grand Circle Cruise Line’s exclusive small ships. The M/V Athena, Arethusa, and Artemis are 50-passenger ships that are designed and built exclusively for our travelers (two groups of 25 travelers, each with its own Program Director). These ships are the perfect size to explore the islands and shores of the Mediterranean—and then slip into smaller ports and harbors for the night, well away from the larger cruise ships.

Your Burma small ship

Sail aboard our privately chartered, 34-passenger RV Paukan

Uncover one of the most untouched corners of Asia—Burma, now known as Myanmar—aboard the RV Paukan, an intimate 34-passenger ship currently being constructed to navigate the waters of the Irrawaddy River, and the newest member of the Paukan fleet. This ship offers similar features to its sister ship (which was built in 2007 and featured in the photo to the left), like traditional and modern décor, and comfortable private cabins and spacious common areas for you and your fellow travelers to unwind in after a day of discoveries.
