You Said It and Travel + Leisure Heard It

From back-yard barbecues to longer hours of daylight, summer is a season with plenty of reasons to celebrate. But it’s our consistent work year-round at Grand Circle Cruise Line that has us celebrating now, because readers of Travel + Leisure have voted us Top 3 “World’s Best River Cruise Line” for 2013 in the July 2013 edition.

Not only does it feel great that this honor comes from readers, but I marks a solid leap from our Top 5 ranking in the 2012 edition of the same poll.

It’s clear that our travelers love to share their passion for Grand Circle Cruise Line. Travel + Leisure had previously announced in the June 2013 issue that our shipboard service had landed us a Top 5 slot in the annual “World’s Best Service” awards. We’ve now made Travel + Leisure “World’s Best” lists six times – all thanks to you.

This comes on the heels of accolades from Condé Nast Traveler as well, including the ranking as 2012 “World’s Best Cruise Line,” along with prestigious Gold List and Platinum Circle recognition for 2013.

For us, the best part is knowing that these accolades reflect what you’ve been saying about us to your friends, on your blogs, on our website, and on social media like Facebook. We’re so glad to hear what you have to share – and appreciate that Travel + Leisure hears you, too.
