M/S Chardonnay docked on the bank of the Rhone River
The M/S Chardonnay was ranked #4 in Condé Nast Traveler’s “Top 40 River Cruise Ships in the World” 2013 Readers’ Poll
Designed specifically for the smaller waterways of France, Grand Circle’s M/S Chardonnay provides a more intimate cruising experience. This river cruiser carries a maximum of just 46 Grand Circle travelers. That’s because we believe the picturesque villages and vineyards that make up the French countryside are best appreciated aboard a river ship that’s as relaxed as the region itself.
