Thriving Communities


Swan Hellenic work to form meaningful relationships with the fascinating places we visit on our cultural expedition cruises, and always respect their cultural and environmental integrity too. Thanks to the stringent measures we take in every area, and our commitment to Responsible Cruising, we always explore sustainably and respectfully, wherever we are.


Wherever our adventures take us, Swan Hellenic only ever use WWF approved, sustainable fish, and serve locally sourced food whenever possible. We strive to offer a selection of prime local specialties, wines, beers and spirits, and aim to take our guests on voyages of gastronomic discovery that reduce food miles and support local economies. How this works out in practice naturally depends on the areas visited, but even in Antarctica low-food-miles produce can account for up to 50% of the food served on board!
