Swan Hellenic adds extra Antarctic sailing onboard SH Minerva

SH Minerva will sail an additional 13-day cruise of the Antarctic Peninsula and South Shetland Islands in February, 2022
Swan Hellenic has added a new 13-day cruise of the Antarctic Peninsula and South Shetland Islands, while opening to bookings the remaining accommodation for its chartered 13-day ‘Antarctic Peninsula Discovery Cruise.’

Antarctic Circle

SH Minerva sets sail on the additional ‘Beyond the Antarctic Circle’ itinerary from Ushuaia on February 20. According to Swan Hellenic CEO Andrea Zito the decision was made following the success of the ship's nine-day maiden Antarctica voyage, which took place on December 30, 2021. He said, ‘SH Minerva’s maiden cruise exceeded our guests’ high expectations and we’re determined to keep going above and beyond, including by ensuring they can enjoy a great escape exactly when they want.

‘That’s why we’ve created these extra opportunities for new guests to join our adventure right from the start.’

Chartered cruise

The cruise line has also opened to bookings the limited remaining accommodation for its chartered 13-day 'Antarctic Peninsula Discovery Cruise,' departing February 8 from Ushuaia. A choice of staterooms and suites are available.
