Swan Hellenic is embarking on the 2024/25 Antarctic season with a world-leading fleet. From spectacular expeditions to unique experiences in one of the last wilderness regions, the company offers awe-inspiring cruise experiences.
Introduction to Adventure: The 2024/25 Expedition Season
Swan Hellenic opens the gates to stunning Antarctica with an impressive range of expedition cruises varying from 10 to 21 days. A highlight is the spectacular expedition of the “SH Diana” from mid-November 2024, which begins its voyage in Cape Town, South Africa and takes guests via exotic locations such as Tristan Da Cunha and South Georgia to the frosty wonderland of Antarctica.
Unique ship design for intimate expeditions
Swan Hellenic stands out from others with its newbuilds built at the Helsinki shipyard, which are much more intimate than other expedition ships with a maximum of 152 or 192 passengers. Supported by modern hybrid propulsion with battery, these ships also enable a more sustainable approach to travel.
“We are very proud of the wide choice for our guests on the various Antarctic cruises. As always with Swan Hellenic, the programme put together by our experts offers immersive and often life-changing experiences,” says Andrea Zito, CEO of Swan Hellenic.
Accompanied by experts: Science on board
Swan Hellenic focuses not only on luxury, but also on education. Experts in ornithology, geology and marine biology inform guests on board and offer a deeper understanding of the surroundings. “This guarantees unforgettable encounters with whales, penguins, seals and many seabirds. Close, but still with the necessary distance and respect for the inhabitants of this region of our earth,” Zito emphasises.
Design and delicacies: A look into the inner workings of the ships
Swan Hellenic’s ships are not only technological marvels, but also real beauties. Their interiors are designed in Scandinavian style and offer unobstructed views of the oceans and landscapes through floor-to-ceiling windows. Culinary delights also await guests, with daily changing “Maris menus” created by world-renowned chefs from the international gourmet association JRE-Jeunes Restaurants.
Swan Hellenic offers not just a journey, but an adventure that stimulates both the senses and the mind. With a focus on sustainable technology, expert knowledge and luxurious design, the company is setting new standards in the world of expedition cruising.
