Swan Hellenic Makes Changes To 2022-2023 Cruises

Swan Hellenic is making a series of changes to its 2022-2023 cultural expedition cruises, in response to both the tragic situation in Ukraine and ongoing COVID-related restrictions across the Far East.

The changes will now see the SH Minerva sailing a new course into the Northern Hemisphere for a refocused Arctic season, preceded by new UK Celtic discovery cruises exploring unforgettable landscapes and unique cultures.

The SH Vega is now scheduled to leave Helsinki Shipyard in September. It will then set a course directly for Argentina to join its twin ship for the 2022-2023 Antarctic season, which remains unchanged, retaining the itineraries that were so highly acclaimed in SH Minerva’s maiden cruises.

Swan Hellenic CEO Andrea Zito said that: “Like the cruise industry as a whole, we’ve moved fast in response to the tragic situation in Ukraine. While apologising to our guests for the disappointment this has caused and grateful for their understanding, we’re very proud of the exciting new itineraries and opportunities we’ve created for them to continue seeing what others don’t.”
