Swan Hellenic Itineraries

Minerva's most frequent cruise lengths average 13 to 16 days, while some extend up to a month; two itineraries or more may also be joined together into one longer trip. Individual cruise itineraries are never repeated within one calendar year.

In 2010 and 2011, the ship will cruise Northern Europe as far north as the top of Norway, the Faroes and Iceland in the summer; the Mediterranean (including the North African coast and Black Sea) and Middle East in the spring and fall; and the Far East and India during the winter.

Airfares are included on scheduled and/or charter flights between the U.K. and the ship. For North Americans, select cruises offer flights, transfers and London hotel packages.

The riverboats cruise the Rhone and Soane in France (from Burgundy south to Provence), as well as the Camargue and the length of the Rhine and the Danube Rivers (from Passau to Vienna and Budapest). A limited number of cruises operate on select dates in May, June and September.
