***JANUARY 2017 - SWAN HELLENIC HAS CEASED TRADING ***

Minerva combines the small ship atmosphere and country house style that proved to be so popular with Swan Hellenic passengers.
This new programme of discovery cruises features established favourite destinations as well as a new frontier with the Antarctica expedition cruising season.

Swan Hellenic also offers European River Cruising. The joy of travelling through Europe – by way of its rivers and waterways is all too easily overlooked. When you find a combination of destinations, variety and value that match Swan’s cruise philosophy in a place so full of history and heritage, the mix is sure to prove irresistible. With cruises that follow the Danube, the Rhône and the Rhine, Swan’s River Cruises combine all the ingredients for a holiday that is as relaxing as it is fascinating.


With Swan Hellenic Cruises you’ll travel with a distinguished Guest Speaker. Swan also includes an inclusive shore excursion programme valued up to £500, all meals, entertainment and gratuities on board.

Ships

Helpful yet unobtrusive
Attentive cabin stewards will look after you throughout your stay. There's a sense of occasion every evening in the elegant Dining Room. Open from early until late, there are no sittings or seating plans on board. You're free to dine on your own, or with newly-found friends. Just let the Maître d' know your preference on the day. Menus include gourmet choices and often feature dishes that reflect the destinations to which we travel. Fresh ingredients are brought on board at many ports. Dishes are cooked to order and our wine waiters will be happy to recommend labels from our extensive wine list.

Dining Arrangements
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are arranged on an open sitting basis and may be taken in the Dining Room or the Veranda. Opening times will vary according to the daily programme
