Swan Hellenic confirms Antarctica cultural expedition cruises

Nicosia, Cyprus: Today, Thursday the 30th of September 2021,

Cultural expedition cruise leader Swan Hellenic confirmed that its inaugural cruises exploring Antarctica will all be sailing as planned following the Argentinian Government’s recent announcement that the country will reopen from 20th October. As a result, Swan Hellenic will be able to operate from Ushuaia, the home port chosen for the maiden season Antarctic cruises of its purpose-designed new ice-class flagship SH Minerva.

Recognising that guests may have postponed booking while awaiting this certainty and that the confirmation has arrived too late for them to take advantage of its Cruise Like a Swan return celebration, Swan Hellenic has extended it for a further month. So now all guests have until 31st October to benefit from savings of 20% off its brochure prices, a gift of $300 on-board spending per person, no supplement for single stateroom occupancy on selected cruises and a deposit of just 15% when booking. Moreover, guests can book with confidence, knowing their all-inclusive cruise will be protected by Swan Hellenic’s simplified no-quibble cancellation policy.

Andrea Zito
Swan Hellenic CEO commented

“We’re delighted we can embark on our inaugural season as planned and happy to spread the joy by extending our Cruise Like a Swan celebration. We can’t wait to welcome you aboard to see what others don’t, finally experiencing the elegant Scandi-design interiors with open views, the gourmet cuisine, expert lectures and insightful expeditions to some of the most awe-inspiring places on earth that we have worked so hard to create.
