Swan Hellenic

See what others don't

Relaunched in September 2020 to proudly continue the spirit of cultural expedition cruising pioneered in the 1950s, the new Swan Hellenic builds on its British roots, with a global cultural cruising outlook aimed at providing guests with the opportunity to ‘see what others don’t’.

Aboard innovative ships, purposely designed to explore the most inspiring and inaccessible places on the planet, and following meticulously prepared itineraries, Swan Hellenic’s guests will be immersed in wild landscapes, the wildlife, people and unique customs of the world’s less travelled regions.

From the Arctic to Antarctica, from Scotland to the Pacific Islands, from the Guianas to New Zealand.

Why Travel with Swan Hellenic?

The twin-sister-ships Minerva and Vega, both ice-class expedition cruise ships, are custom-built for extreme weather conditions, from the heavy ice of the polar regions to the heat and humidity of the tropics. 

Understated elegance might be another way of phrasing what awaits a Swan Hellenic guest. Delivering superior service, the warm and friendly crew will do their utmost to ensure the trip of a lifetime. Every time.
