Swan Hellenic reservations exceed expectations as inaugural cruise books to capacity

Swan Hellenic is making a return to the cruise business with two new expedition ships (Artist impression, July 2020)Today, Wednesday the 31st of March, Swan Hellenic announced that interest in its cultural expedition cruises is translating into buoyant bookings across the board.

Driven by renewed consumer confidence, this uptick is particularly strong for the iconic company’s cruises of New Zealand & the Pacific Islands, UK & Northern France, the Scottish Islands and Antarctica. Indeed, its Antarctic Polar Solar eclipse inaugural cruise is already fully booked.

At the same time, the Swan Hellenic model of cultural expedition cruising has clearly hit a chord, strengthened by the news that construction of its all-new fleet of three 5-star ice-class expedition ships at Helsinki Shipyard is proceeding successfully on schedule.

The structure of its first ship, SH Minerva, is in fact already complete, enabling everyone to see her elegant final form and staterooms, which can be explored on the Swan Hellenic website in their rich natural materials and spacious open perspectives out to sea.

Swan Hellenic CEO Andrea Zito commented: “Small expedition ships coupled with further afield destinations are considered well placed to lead the resurgence in cruising. We’re delighted to have inspired a diverse spectrum of curious minds in such numbers and look forward to welcoming them aboard to see what others don’t”.
