Visitors at Prow's Edge Cruise Magazine, and readers of our blog here continuously tells us how refreshing it is to hear about cruises to destinations other than the usual Alaska or Caribbean ports of call.
To that end we bring you news of Swan Hellenic who are revisiting some classic destinations as well as discovering some hidden gems.
In May 2011, guests on ‘An Italian Serenade’ can visit the picturesque Crotone, located in the southern region of Calabria, Italy, and the small fortified town of Lazio, dominated by a large Aragonese Castle.
In late summer 2011 mv Minerva will make a complete circuit of the Black Sea with visits to Sinop in North Turkey, Batumi in Georgia and the ports of the Crimea.
Many of the upcoming cruise itineraries have reached capacity due to the quality of the expeditions and the breadth of locations this smaller cruise ship is able to travel to, not to mention the inclusive value; which has been Swan Hellenic’s company ethos since 1954. Guests need not worry as Swan Hellenic still have some incredible itineraries left for 2010 including ‘All Roads Lead to Rome’ (26th August), from the lower guarantee fare of £1,299 and ‘The Venetian Republic’ (9th September) from just £1,925 per person.
Swan Hellenic cruises are fast becoming sold out as the success of their 2010 cruise program reaches new heights.
Unprecedented demand for cabins over recent months has meant that Minerva now has less than 100 cabins available on cruises departing before 16th March 2011 and fewer than 50 available on her summer 2010 program.
