A cute pocket-sized ship for in-depth cultural voyages

Overview. Artemis is one of three fully owned sister ships (the others are Arethusa and Athena) for Grand Circle Cruise Line.

The Ship. Artemis is a cute little ship, with a dark blue hull, and built specifically for in-depth coastal cruising. The lobby is reminiscent of those found aboard the company’s riverships.

Outdoor aft deck area has bar, and canopy cover (can be removed for warm climate cruising) inboard from two lifeboats that also act as shore tenders.

Accommodation. The cabins, though small, each have a bed that can be used as a sofa during the day, flat-screen TV with CNN, telephone, personal safe, mini-fridge, individually controlled air conditioning, hair dryer, and dual electrical outlets.

The 18 cabins on Upper Deck have en-suite bathrooms with showers (no cabins have bathtubs), and large sliding glass doors that open onto a private balcony. The six cabins on Main Deck have portholes that can be opened, while the two single-occupancy cabins have a porthole, but it cannot be opened.

Dining. No information was available at press time.

Entertainment. The entertainment is strictly limited to conversation with fellow travelers.

Spa/Fitness. It’s such a small ship, there are no facilities.
