So all we do is go swanning about the world. Wrong, we let somebody else pilot the ship.
And that somebody would be Swan Hellenic who will show you the Arctic, Antarctic and rest of the world – from Brazil to Papua New Guinea, Norway to New Zealand, Australia to Africa, and Madagascar to the Mediterranean.
Swan Hellenic are introducing a new lady to the fleet for next year with SH Diana joining SH Minerva and SH Vega from the past two years.
So as with all things cruise let’s see the numbers.
There are 192 guests across 96 staterooms and suites, many with balconies.
Diana rules the waves
Diana’s passengers features a multifunctional room next to the observation lounge, a private dining room and two tenders.
There are new itineraries too on the roster, such as New Zealand in Depth and immerse yourself in its Maori culture and its Long White Cloud.
Then there’s Papua New Guinea with its active volcano and Eclectus parrots.
For Japanophiles then you can explore the Land of the Rising Sun further than ever before.
And its Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples and the forested island of Yakushima.
Of course, all these exotic destinations bill themselves as the Land of something or other.
And that is no different with Iceland, the Land of Ice and Fire.
In Iceland in Depth you can cruise along the fjords, something we’d encourage anybody in the Nordic or Scandinavia, nations.
And so to the Land of Carnival, the Spirit of Brazil will give you those rhythms, beats and buzzing cities.
But you’ll also get to see humpback whales in the Abrolhos Archipelago.
While if Africa is more your thing then you can check out their Unspoilt Wilds of Southwest Africa.
And talk to the animals… the elephants, buffalos, lowland gorillas and chimps. And you’ll feel good.
Before learning about the wonders of voodoo in Benin.
