Swan Hellenic Unveils 2025 Cruises

Swan Hellenic has released its 2025 itineraries, with journeys to the Poles, West Africa and Latin America. Highlights for 2025 include an Amazon River exploration odyssey in Brazil and two new cruises of the Mediterranean, where the Swan Hellenic cultural expedition cruise tradition began.

The new Mediterranean cruises explore several sites of ancient and medieval culture, many with UNESCO World Heritage status. Most of these can only be accessed by smaller ships such as SH Diana, which also brings cruise guests the pleasure of mooring in the heart of Venice.

The 10-night “Contrasts of Mediterranean Culture” itinerary aboard SH Diana departs Palermo for Venice on August 20, 2025, following almost the entire length of the Sicilian, Montenegrin and Croatian coasts. Guests will have the opportunity to explore Lipari, Giardini NaxosTaorminaGallipoli and Monopoli, Italy; and Dubrovnik, Kotor, Split, Hvar and Rovinj, Croatia.

The 19-night “Exploring South America from Barbados to Brazil” itinerary onboard SH Vega sails from Bridgetown, Barbados on October 12, 2025 in the Caribbean down to Salvador de Bahia, Brazil, this voyage takes in many of South America’s most famous sites as well as its undiscovered and inaccessible cultural and natural wonders, including Port of Spain, Georgetown, Paramaribo, Îles du Salut, Belém, the Lençóis Maranhenses National Park, Fortaleza and Recife. The highlight of this cruise, however, is a four-day detour up the Amazon River to Macapa, Iquiqui and Gurupa in the heart of the jungle, returning through the Breves Narrows, upriver from Belém in the Thousand Islands region.

Details of all these expert-led 2025 cruises are available on the line’s website. For more information, visit www.swanhellenic.com.
