Swan Hellenic’s 350-passenger Minvera emerged from a $13 million renovation at the Lloyd Werft shipyard in Bremerhaven, Germany.
Thirty-two balconies were added to existing staterooms, bringing the number of balcony suites to 44.
The Orpheus Lounge & Bar and the Livingstone Lounge were added and the Shackleton Bar was expanded.
New bathrooms were installed in all 181 cabins and WiFi now is available throughout the ship.
The Minerva this summer will operate cruises to the British Isles, Northern Europe, the Baltic, the Mediterranean, the Black Sea, the Red Sea and the Middle East.
Its winter 2012-13 deployments will take the ship to the Far East and India.
