Each day you spend on board Minerva promises to be as memorable as the days you spend ashore. Relax and absorb Minerva’s unique shipboard ambience, savouring the country house atmosphere that so distinguishes Swan Hellenic’s style of cruising. Allow eminent Guest Speakers to set the scene for the stories behind the destinations visited during your cruise and perhaps discover a hidden talent by taking part in a workshop during days at sea. As the sun sets on another perfect day, meet friends for cocktails in one of Minerva’s bars: the club-like wrap around Shackleton Bar, the intimate Wheeler Bar or the panoramic observation lounge, the new Orpheus Lounge. Background cocktail music – piano, harp or classical guitar – and the buzz of animated conversation set the tone for an evening of fine dining.
