To Be The World Leader In Cultural Expedition Cruising

Swan Hellenic is proud to return to the waters 70 years after its first pioneering cruise. Our brand new fleet of expedition ships are cutting edge, but the core values that underpinned the brand and served its guests so well from its inception remain in place.  As does the passion for exploratory travel to the globe’s furthest far flung places.

Constructed in the Helsinki shipyard, our expedition ships combine the latest polar ice-class technology with stylish, sophisticated interiors. Think high-end boutique hotel with contemporary sophistication. Chic, spacious and well-planned cabins feature generously sized bathrooms, comfortable in-room dining facilities and unobstructed views of the incredible destinations we visit.

Understated elegance might be another way of phrasing what awaits a Swan Hellenic guest. At the very heart of our brand is the onboard team with our guests’ personal wellbeing their foremost priority. The service on board embodies the same values, being attentive, personal and intuitive but discreet. There’s no fuss or formality, just focused dedication to understanding our guests’ preferences and anticipating their needs, always aiming to exceed and surprise expectations.

Swan Hellenic prides itself on taking its guests to see what others don’t, visiting small and lesser-known ports of special cultural, geographical or wildlife interest as well as bucket list famous cities. Above all, our guests visit many uniquely remote places beyond these ports of call, boarding Zodiac boats and exploring at sea level to come ashore in rich unspoilt areas of our planet that often cannot be accessed in any other way.

Spectacular Solar Eclipse Cruises

If you are looking for a very special vacation, you may want to consider an expedition cruise to Antarctica in December 2023. Only on polar class ships will you have the opportunity to experience the total solar eclipse set amid the backdrop of Antarctica. This celestial event won’t make an appearance again for another 75 years. Your journey takes you to the remote corners of the Southern Ocean in a path of total darkness created by the eclipse. This once in a lifetime occurrence will be in full view in the early morning hours of December 4, 2021, and these epic polar expedition cruises will bring you up close to this magnificent wonder.

Solar Eclipse in Antartica Cruise

The Solar Eclipse in Antartica cruise with Swoop Antarctica positions you near the South Orkney Islands in the Scotia Sea for a spectacular view of the eclipse. Aside from the eclipse, you’ll have the chance to see the seventh continent and explore the splendid wildlife of South Georgia and the Falklands on the 20-day cruise. Onboard lectures from NASA Astronomer Dr. Michelle Thaller and NASA Engineer Dr. Andrew Booth enhance the realm of your cruise, as does kayaking adventures and wildlife experiences.
