CULTURAL CRUISING Every Swan Hellenic cruise is the same today, combining geographical exploration with cultural and scientific discovery. We don't just take you to explore the most extraordinary places on earth. We bring you the company of like-minded people and renowned experts, who offer eye-opening lectures and are on hand for informal questions and discussion throughout your cruise. So when you choose Swan Hellenic to see what others don’t – you can be sure you’ll do so with a full perspective and real insight into the history, cultures, wildlife, flora, geology and geography of the place. Briefings before each disembarkation and recaps afterwards supplement our lectures and talks, stimulating a relaxed social environment that encourages the sharing of experiences. At the same time, every Swan Hellenic cruise is also full of opportunities for you to develop your creative passions, with professionals on board to support you in photography and more. A library completes the picture, with a multitude of books on every subject, for you to take your interests to another level. It’s the depth of these other dimensions that’s unique to Swan Hellenic, making us the first choice of adventurous minds worldwide.

So, we’d like to give you a brief idea of a typical day aboard. Except we can't. Because there’s no such thing as a typical day with Swan Hellenic. We can merely outline the possibilities that allow guests to tailor every moment to their interests and mood, even if that simply involves rising late to breakfast in bed, or standing over the prow in the Swan’s Nest late at night, musing out to sea. So, here it is. A day of exceptional choices. A DAY ABOARD Breakfast with view Waking comfortably refreshed to the natural textures and panoramic views of your stateroom, breakfast is just a short walk away. Choose anything from a light continental breakfast through to a substantial cooked meal that will fuel you up for an action-packed day. Then make your way down to Basecamp, a Conciergemanaged full-service changing room where you kit up for your expeditions. Expedition expertise Here, you’ll be briefed on any technical aspects before setting off in small groups - each with its own expert guide – for your choice from a wide range of options, extending from kayaking to expeditions in the best performing zodiacs, exploring the coast or landing ashore to hike inland and discover areas of outstanding interest and beauty.

Relax and unwind The afternoon offers the opportunity of an expert lecture on the area, followed by further expeditions or excursions. Or, of course, you could lounge out on the extensive decks, observing the astounding seascapes and wildlife. Or you could grab a towel, sit back and sweat it out, admiring every aspect from inside the panoramic sauna - before or after a soothing massage. Or you could visit the gym or the hairdresser or shop for essentials. Evening entertainment Soon it will be time for the daily recap and any briefing for tomorrow’s expeditions. And then it’s on to the pleasures of elegant but informal dining, followed by a piano performance, board game, cards, outdoor wildlife observation or stargazing under crystal clear skies. And with all that to float your boat, you’ll ease happily into your supportive mattress at the end of the day, with a great night’s sleep assured. When the details are taken care of, you can focus on making the most of your expedition. So we’ve included all the little details in the price of your cruise fare. No hidden extras or surprise gratuity bills at the end of your holiday—you can be comfortable we’ve thought of the little things, so you don’t have to.
