The vessel is currently in the final stages of a multi-million pound refurbishment that includes extensions of the internal and external public areas as well as a new wrap-around observation lounge, the Orpheus Lounge. The Shackleton’s Bar will be extended and a new Internet Lounge will be added. Swan Hellenic has also increased the size of 32 cabins by adding balcony facilities, raising the number of balcony suites to 23% of all cabin accommodation. All 181 passenger cabins will be upgraded with new en-suite bathrooms.
‘With only 100 days before the newly refurbished Minerva sets sail, the ship’s company and our shore side team at Swan Hellenic are all very excited about this next era of cultural discovery cruising,’ said Colin Stone, md of both Swan Hellenic and Hebridean Island.
