Swan Hellenic, the award-winning small-ship enrichment cruise line, just released its new itineraries for the Summer & Fall 2016 seasons. The new seasons, now available for booking and viewable on Swan Hellenic’s website (http://us.swanhellenic.com), feature itineraries to interesting destinations, some including a combination of ocean and river cruising. Brochures may be ordered through the cruise line’s website.
During the new season, Minerva will explore the White Sea for the very first time, visiting the beautiful Solovetsky Islands. Cruising to France, she will embark on a voyage combining ocean cruising with journeys along the Loire, Seine and Garonne Rivers. Guests can also discover the numerous treasures of the British Isles and the Mediterranean, a chance to experience Royal Edinburgh’s Military Tattoo, and a cruise up the Thames River to London, for a 2-night stay.
Sue Cherrier, vice- president of marketing in North America, said: “We are excited to have Minerva offer a special combination of ocean and river cruises, which is possible due to her small size. Guests will be able to visit spectacular ports in France and enjoy more inland scenery as they sail along these three rivers, without switching ships. Or they can enjoy an ocean-river cruise all the way in to London offering an extended stay in port.”
To celebrate the new seasons, Swan Hellenic is offering early booking savings of up to 10% on cruises starting from just $2,499 per person if booked by June 30, 2015. Fares include all gratuities, shore excursions, meals and entertainment. Plus there are also rates available that include Air and Transfers from select gateways. Past passengers of Swan Hellenic will also receive additional loyalty savings on the new cruise season.
As always, each cruise features Swan Hellenic’s hallmark qualities of intriguing destinations, all-inclusive value (including shore excursions and gratuities) and a roster of renowned Guest Speakers who provide in-depth talks on the history and culture of each destination. Cruise fares also include port fees and complimentary wine with dinner on gala evenings.
