Swan Hellenic announced the launch of a one-month celebration offer for all couples bookings made between Feb. 15 and March 15. Guests can treat their significant other to a romantic voyage of discovery aboard either of the cultural expedition cruise line’s brand new five-star ships, and Swan Hellenic will offer them a free cruise.
This two-for-one celebration offer is a great gift for amorous adventurers interested in the Arctic and beyond to see what others don’t and is available for a wide selection of the company’s cruises throughout 2022.
“We wanted to create a celebration that follows on from Saint Valentine’s Day, extending its romantic spirit for the young at heart, the adventurers with a thirst for life who inspired the creation of cultural expedition cruising,” said Swan Hellenic CEO Andrea Zito. “There could be no better time to spread the love, collecting emotions and getting more connected to our earth.”
Swan Hellenic was relaunched in July 2020 to continue the spirit of cultural expedition cruising the company pioneered in the 1950s. Building on its British roots, the new company has a global cultural cruising outlook dedicated to providing guests with the opportunity to ‘see what others don’t’.
Swan Hellenic’s purpose-built ships feature elegant Scandi-design interiors, extensive outdoor spaces and dedicated expedition facilities. SH Minerva and SH Vega, the line’s two new five-star Polar Code PC 5 expedition cruise ships with ice-strengthened hulls, launched in December 2021 and will arrive in May 2022, each accommodate 152 guests in 76 spacious suites and staterooms, the majority with large balconies. A slightly larger PC 6 ice-class vessel accommodating 192 guests in the same distinctive comfort and style in 96 staterooms and suites will be arriving in early 2023.
All three ships feature three dining venues—the Swan Restaurant, Club Lounge and Pool bar & Grill—and are being built in full compliance with SOLAS Safe Return to Port requirements. The crews each include a team of seasoned expedition guides, expert speakers and lecturers, for a total complement of 120 and 140 guests, respectively.
Headquartered in Cyprus with offices in London, Dusseldorf, Monaco, Fort Lauderdale (serving the North America market), Hong Kong (serving Greater China and South-East Asia), Sidney (serving Australia-New Zealand) and Copenhagen (serving Scandinavia and Iceland), as well as partnerships serving India and Japan, Swan Hellenic supports the travel trade with specialist local partners to provide customers with expert personal service worldwide.
