Launched in 2008, Artemis is part of Grand Circle's fleet of small ocean vessels. The 193-foot ship has three decks that can accommodate 50 passengers. It sails three itineraries: the Greek Islands, including Turkey; the Dalmatian Coast and Greece; and the Adriatic Sea.

The ship has 26 nonsmoking cabins -- 24 doubles and two singles -- ranging in size from 150 to 170 square feet. All have ocean views and private bathrooms with a hair dryer. The 18 upper deck cabins include a private balcony. Most cabins have movable twin beds that can be converted to a double bed. Each cabin has a radio, phone, in-room safe, individual climate controls, minifridge and flat-screen TV with CNN. A limited number of free single supplements are available.

Onboard offerings include a lounge/bar with leather couches and soft chairs, a sun deck with classic wooden deck chairs and a dining room with single open seating. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the ship, including in cabins. There is no elevator or fitness room.

There are two program directors, one for each group of 25 passengers. Excursions include headset-tours in the major ports.

Artemis passengers tend to be Americans over 50. The majority are couples; the line says one in four passengers travel solo. (A roommate-matching service is available.) Guests are generally well traveled and many are repeat cruisers.

Artemis Cruiser Reviews

Overall cruise experience is very good. The Day in a life was the highlighted experience. I really enjoyed it.

The staff, the Caption, Ship Manager, the Chef and his kitchen staff on ARTEMIS were very friendly and courteous. I had the same caption on my Greek Islands tours four years back!Read More

Excellent time in Croatia, Bosnia and Montenegro

This was our first small boat cruise and it was much more relaxing than a larger ship.The cruise worked out so both sides of the boat sometimes had a better view, so one side isn’t better than the other.Read More
