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

#1 “World’s Best River Cruise Line” in
2013 Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards

Grand Circle Cruise Line has been ranked—for the second consecutive year—the top river cruise line in Condé Nast Traveler’s annual survey of the world’s best cities, hotels, airlines, cruise lines and more. In addition to these back-to-back #1 rankings, this is the ninth year in a row we’ve ranked among the world’s best. Click here to read our official press release.

The Readers’ Choice Awards ask travelers to rate their experiences based on ships’ activities/facilities, crew/service, design/layout, food/dining, itineraries/schedule, and shore excursions.

It’s that direct feedback from travelers that makes all of us at Grand Circle—from our Boston headquarters to more than 30 regional offices around the world—so honored to receive this recognition.

We see this as confirmation that Grand Circle delivers an unrivaled combination of the best experience at the best value. Our river and small ship cruise itineraries allow you to immerse yourself in the local culture through personal encounters with the residents who call each region home—and you’ll pay $50 to $500 less per day than you would with other major small ship travel companies. Plus, on each of our privately owned vessels, our highly trained, English-speaking staff is there around the clock to ensure you enjoy a carefree journey.

This was a great trip. One of the first things I noticed was the number of people who had traveled with Grand Circle before. This was the first clue to the kind of company I was traveling with. The ship and the crew was all so friendly and so eager to your every need. I have never felt so pampered in my life.

We traveled on the Rossia. The ship was very comfortable, the crew incredibly friendly and the food very nice. Everybody on the boat as well as all the Program Directors (but especially Misha) were great. ... By the second day on return from our day's outing, Goren, head of hospitality greeted each of us by name with a welcoming smile.
