Destination: South America
Embarkation: Buenos Aires
This cruise was different to the earlier cruises that we had taken with Swan in respect that, because of its location and duration, it was around twice the price that we usually pay. This coincided with an unusual number of what appeared to be passengers from the Home Counties, all with the 'very cultured Southern England speech impediment' (as described in an earlier review). One always had the feeling of being carefully scrutinised before they deigned to sit at your table.I quickly learnt and did the same. My recollection was that passengers from 'Up North' were not welcome at their table while the Welsh remained unpopular. Regrettably this was the worse example of class distinction I have encountered on the Minerva. Despite all this met lots of interesting fellow passengers and enjoyed the cruise. Less
