The ship was originally built in 1998. She operated with Compagnie du Ponant as Le Levant until December 2012 when she was refurbished and transferred to Paul Gauguin Cruises. She now specialises in European, Caribbean, and Latin American cruises.[1]

The name Tere Moana translates into Ocean Traveller in Tahitian.[2]

In August 2015, Paul Gauguin Cruises sold the Tere Moana to Grand Circle Cruises. The ship was renamed Clio and began sailing for Grand Circle Cruises, under the flag of Malta in July 2016.


Clio has two restaurants and two bars. She also features the Deep Nature Spa, a fitness center and a swimming pool.[3]
