Swan Hellenic
  • Overview

Swan Hellenic are a small British-based cruise line who specialise in small ship discovery cruising. There is one ship in the Swan Hellenic fleet, the MV Minerva; holding just 350 passengers, the ship feels much like a country house at sea, sailing to ports which many of the larger ships cannot. On the itinerary are a host of fascinating destinations located across the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, Middle East and the Far East.

If your cruise is leaving from a port outside of the UK, then you will find your flights included within the price of your cruise fare. All meals are also included, as well as both the Welcome & Farewell Cocktail Parties and formal Gala Dinners. In addition to this, Swan Hellenic provides a range of complimentary in-depth lectures hosted by knowledgeable guest speakers throughout the duration of your cruise. The lectures will provide a background to many of the ports of call you will be visiting, as well as other topics of interest that you may be keen to know more about.

Once in port, guests will benefit from optional all-inclusive shore excursions; a chance to see iconic sights and learn more about the culture and history of your chosen destinations. All entrance fees incurred during the excursions, as well as tips for drivers and tour guides, are paid for you in advance by Swan Hellenic. The excursions programme can be tailor-made to suite your individual preferences, so whether you prefer exploring local landmarks or taking energetic hikes, then Swan Hellenic can provide something for you.

The MV Minerva offers luxurious and homely accommodation, including a large number of spacious balcony cabins.
