GRAND CIRCLE DUBROVNIK d.o.o., pomorska i turistička agencija
Our success begins with YOU!
Our Vision, Mission and Values
Our culture started from the minute we decided to acquire Grand Circle in 1985, and it has been shaped by countless events and people over our history. Parts of our culture were very well considered, such as when we crafted a Vision and a Mission and identified the Values we believed in. Other components have been shaped by the big and small things that make up our past – the move to Boston from New York, the Gulf War Crisis, terrorist attacks and the dynamism of our industry and times.
What it is like to work at Grand Circle? What do we take seriously, what do we believe, how do we treat each other, what do we expect? This page is to introduce our culture to associates and to share our sense of who we are with GCC veterans. The core of our culture rests on two essential elements – Performance and Values.
Your success here begins with you and your willingness to stretch, to try new things, to grow. Again, welcome to Grand Circle… your adventure and discovery is about to begin.

LIFE ONBOARDThe cruise industry is something different and unique
Assignments are determined by position, and length can vary based on the particular rank. Managers typically have three to four-month assignments, followed by four weeks of vacation. For all other positions average approximately eight-ten months working onboard, with ten to twelve weeks of vacation time.
Since space is limited, all cabins are designed to maximize efficiency, and depending on your role onboard, you may share a cabin with one or more crew members. Working and living in a such small environment with your fellow crew members will take some time of adjusting. However, this is an excellent opportunity to develop strong friendships with fun and interesting people from all over the world.
While traveling to exciting cities and ports of calls you might face a very challenging time on board of our ships. The pace of the cruising industry is different and not comparable to anything you might have experienced before. You can expect long working hours, seven days a week. Time off is limited, nevertheless you will find the time to explore the cities and ports of calls.
As a hospitality professional, you already have in mind the position that would best suit your qualifications and career goals. Starting a career onboard is not only a professional challenge, but it's also a significant change in lifestyle. It may take some time to get comfortable to your new environment, but with flexibility, an open mind, and enthusiastic professionalism, you will soon become an essential part of our team.
We want you to be successful, and the most important part of that success is YOU!
