Swan Hellenic confirms inaugural cruises in Antarctica as Argentina reopens borders

   October 1, 2021 ,   Cruise Industry

Swan Hellenic Cruises confirmed that the line's inaugural voyages exploring Antarctica would all be sailing as planned following the recent announcement of the Argentinian Government that the country will reopen from October 20.

As a result, the company will be able to operate from Ushuaia Argentina, chosen as homeport for the maiden Antarctic voyages of Swan Hellenic's newbuild (first in a series of 3 sisterships) SH Minerva.

Recognizing that passengers may have postponed booking while awaiting the certainty and that the confirmation had arrived too late for them to take advantage of the Cruise Like a Swan restart celebration, Swan Hellenic extended it for a further month.

Now all guests have until October 31 to benefit from savings of 20% off the brochure prices, a gift of US$300 onboard spending per passenger, no supplement for single stateroom occupancy on selected sailings, and a deposit of 15% when booking.

Vacationers can book with confidence, knowing the all-inclusive voyage will be protected by the line’s simplified cancellation policy.

Swan Hellenic's CEO Andrea Zito said they were delighted they could embark on their inaugural season as planned and happy to spread the joy by extending their Cruise Like a Swan celebration.

"We can’t wait to welcome you aboard to see what others don’t, finally experiencing the elegant Scandi-design interiors with open views, the gourmet cuisine, expert lectures and insightful expeditions to some of the most awe-inspiring places on earth that we have worked so hard to create.”
