Announcing SH Vega is to join SH Minerva for its 2022-2023 Antarctica season, the cultural expedition cruise pioneer adds two new early itineraries following massive inaugural success
Swan Hellenic announced its 2022-2023 season cultural expedition cruises of Antarctica. The new season will reprise the itineraries with which the iconic company so successfully returned to the waves this December, while also adding new ones and more choice.
That’s because the new season will be served by two ships, not one: both SH Minerva and SH Vega, the cultural expedition cruise pioneer’s second purpose-designed 5-star ship, due to launch this September. The wider-ranging cruises comprise Shackleton’s Discovery: Antarctica, South Georgia & The Falklands – a 19-day voyage of discovery departing Buenos Aires on the 16th of November 2022, and the 16- and 19-day Antarctic Peninsula & South Georgia, departing Ushuaia on the 14th of December 2022 and 19th of January 2023 respectively. The various shorter but equally in-depth cultural expedition cruises include 9, 10 and 11-day explorations of the Antarctic Peninsula and South Shetland Islands.
SH Vega will be sailing two completely new 18-day early-season itineraries for its maiden cruises, departing Buenos Aires and Ushuaia on the 19th of October and 5th of November respectively for the Falklands, South Georgia and Antarctica.
Kicking off bookings with a splash, Swan Hellenic announced a generous launch offer of 40% off all Antarctic cruises booked before the 3rd of May 2022.* What’s more, there are matching specially-reduced single occupancy supplements of just 25% for a limited number of cabins.
With glowing reports of the iconic company’s inaugural Southern Ocean cruises spreading fast across the press and social media, take-up is likely to be strong.
“We’re delighted to unveil the exciting itineraries our experts have created for the 2022-2023 Antarctic season,” commented Swan Hellenic CEO Andrea Zito. “The eminent onboard lecturers and veteran expedition guides we’ve selected will reward guests with an unforgettable experience of discovery, seeing what others don’t. And our early bird-enthusiasts will be rewarded further with very special savings to celebrate.”
