Swan Hellenic added several itineraries and maiden port calls to its summer 2013 schedule for the renovated Minerva.
The 350-passenger ship will call for the first time at Spitsbergen, Norway; Bangor, Northern Ireland; Dingle, Ireland; Cartagena, Colombia; and the San Blas Islands.
New itineraries include a 15-day Empires of the Black Sea; a 16-day Baltic Splendor; a 15-day Realms of the British Isles; a 16-day Sagas of Iceland and the Faroes; a 15-day Adriatic Accolade; and an 18-day Mysteries of the Maya.
The Minerva’s refurbishment increased the number of suites with balconies and installed new bathrooms in all cabins.
Swan Hellenic is a unit of All Leisure Holidays, a U.K.-based company that also owns Hebridean Island Cruises and Voyages of Discovery.
