Ship is beautiful, Hotel management is outstanding and the warm friendly attention from the crew make you feel like everyone is family. Food is very good with a great selection of wines and included spirits. Some great expert lectures and the expedition staff are very knowledgeable and caring. They do not market themselves as a “luxury” brand but they do deliver this experience. I ...

We chose the cruise because we have talked for years about wanting to see the Arctic and my wife found a very affordable price on these cruises. Obviously seeing the beauty of the Arctic environment and the Arctic wild life, Polar Bears, Humpback whales, Northern bottle nose whales, Fin whales, and even a Blue whale, Musk Oxen, arctic foxes, and much, much more was a highlight, but getting to ...

I chose the Thalassa Tours European Western Seaboard cruise because I wanted to improve my understanding of part of EU history; Thalassa Tours chose to partner with Swan Hellenic which turned out to be a great decision. The small size of the ship (max 192 passengers) allowed it to enter some small, “non-standard” ports that larger cruise ships ignore. As my primary goal was shore excursions, I ...

I choose the cruise via Cruise Norway. The brand new ship SH Vega (1 year), small (152 passengers only) what is very important when you consider embarkation and disembarkation on the zodiacs during the cruise - when you got a small ship it goes quickly and fluently and does not take a lot of time, so you spend time on zodiak or on the land, and not in in the line of waiting people. Therefore, you ...

This cruise was not like the typical party cruise trip. very educational and physical . lots of activity getting off and on the ship to the zodiacs. a fair amount of hiking /walking was involved. The hotel stay was good and traveling to the ship for disembarkation was planned very well it was a .very fun trip. the staff were excellent, friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. The evening ...

An Arctic expedition cruise was on our bucket list as we did the Antarctic a few year back. SH Vega fitted the bill completely and its circumnavigation of Svalbard was the perfect cruise. It did not disappoint. The crew, the expedition team, the food, the service , the cabins was out of the top drawer. Could not be faulted. SH Vega is a new ship, the right size for an expedition of the poles ...

I had cruised with the Minerva sister ship last year and loved it so much I thought I would try Vega. It’s a beautiful Scandinavian design luxurious ship, where the staff and service is some of the best I have experienced on a ship, even comparing to some “6 star” cruise lines. I would highly recommend Swan Hellenic. It has no similarities to the old stuffy brand at all. This is boutique ...

If I could snap my fingers and be back aboard the SH Vega, I would do it in an instant. Every aspect of the cruise was exceptional. From the friendly and attentive crew to the lovely international guests, we could not have been happier with the people who accompanied us on our adventure. The ship itself is new and beautiful. Every aspect of the small ship is aimed at the comfort and enjoyment ...

This was our first expedition cruise ever. We really wanted to cruise Spitsbergen and the cruise lines we typically cruise with did no longer take this route, Swan Hellenic was one of the few to do this, so we choose them. It was a great first experience and for sure we will do this again and most likely woth Swan Hellenic, they have a great combination of the outdoors expedition experience as ...
