Tour operator G Adventures has acquired the Swan Hellenic
brand and plans to restart cruises in 2018.
Swan Hellenic and Voyages of Discovery ceased operations in
January with the collapse of the cruise lines' parent company, U.K.-based All
Leisure Holidays. G Adventures did not acquire any ships, just the brand.
Toronto-based G Adventures called Swan Hellenic "a 60-year-old
pioneering U.K. cruise line and respected name in the boutique cruising sector."
"Our long-term aim is to re-launch Swan Hellenic and
re-establish the award-winning values that make it so well-loved," said
John Warner, G Adventures' vice president of global sales.

Before All Leisure Holidays went under, G Adventures acquired
All Leisure's tour operations, Travelsphere and Just You.
