Grand Circle Cruise Line has announced its recently acquired 98-passenger, Corinthian will operate on nine new itineraries from early next year.
The US-based small ship and river cruise company purchased the M/V Corinthian from Travel Dynamics in March last year.
The ship will officially join the line when she returns from an Antarctica voyage next year.
Grand Circle chief executive Michael Dowd said the all-suite ship will continue to sail through the icy waters, however, operations will expand with nine new itineraries.
The new voyages will vary from nine- to- 37-day itineraries and will explore South America, North Africa and Europe.
Among them is a nine-day Classic Cities & Moorish Traditions of Iberia & Morocco cruise with visits to Lisbon, Portimao; Morocco: Casablanca, Tangier; Gilbrator; and Seville, Spain.
There’s also a 37-day ‘Voyage to Three Continents’ cruise departing from Argentina to Lisbon with trips to Buenos Aires, Ashuaia, Puerto Madryn, Mar Del Plata, Montevideo, Sao Paulo, Rio De Janeiro, Salvador, Recife, Fogo, San Vicente, Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Casablanca.

Meanwhile, Grand Circle also acquired the 90-passenger River Cloud II from Sea Cloud Cruises.
The ship will join the line’s fleet at the end of this year and will sail under the new name M/S Chanson.
