With over sixty years' experience, Swan Hellenic have perfected the art of traditional, British, small-ship cruising, offering exceptional levels of personal service, and carefully designed, enrichment-oriented itineraries, perfect for quenching a thirst for knowledge. They've had a proud history of providing a stimulating, intimate, and relaxing atmosphere, cruising to some of the world's most fascinating and beautiful historic and natural highlights in the company of specialist experts.
In January 2017, Swan Hellenic - as part of the All Leisure Holidays group - went into administration. At Team Select, we were devastated to hear of the demise of such an iconic and much loved cruise line, whom we had worked very closely with.
However, we are pleased to hear the resurgence of this proud British brand, which was acquired by G Adventures in February 2017, who aim to re-launch Swan Hellenic with a new ship (sadly, the beloved and classic Minerva was not acquired), and new itineraries to continue the brand's extraordinary legacy. G Adventures will endeavour to continue with Swan Hellenic's famous award-winning values in the brand's newest chapter, and we look forward to bringing more news and updates.
Cruise with Swan Hellenic to...
Swan Hellenic's origins can be traced to the Hellenic Travellers Club, from around the turn of the 20th century to the onset of the First World War, and the post-war Swan's Travel Bureau, both of which offered cruises around the Greek Isles. However, Swan Hellenic offers a far wider range of itineraries, extending beyond the Mediterranean and North Africa to northern Europe and the Baltics, and across the Atlantic to South and Central America, and the Caribbean.
