Grand Circle Cruise Line has acquired Terre Moana, an 88-passenger vessel, from Paul Gauguin Cruises. The new addition is expected to enhance the cruise company’s small-group river and ocean cruise experiences, Grand Circle Cruise Line said.
Although it was renovated by its previous owners in 2012, the company anticipates refurbishing Terre Moana by the summer 2016 season so that it will fit in with the style of Grand Circle Cruise Line’s fleet.
According to the cruise line, Terre Moana is expected to be relocated to the Asian/Southeast Asian region. To accommodate this new area of the world, Grand Circle plans to offer new itineraries to Japan, Indonesia, Borneo, Sydney and other diverse destinations. Among these travel options include The Best of Southern Japan & South Korea, Bali to Australia: Komodo Island & the Timor Sea, Indonesia: Java, Bali, Borneo & Komodo Islands and more. Although these new destinations are not confirmed, travelers can explore this season’s cruise itineraries here.
