Expedition cruise line Swan Hellenic confirmed that its inaugural cruises exploring Antarctica will all be sailing as planned following the Argentinian Government’s recent announcement that the country will reopen as of Oct. 20. As a result, Swan Hellenic will be able to operate from Ushuaia, the homeport chosen for the maiden season Antarctic cruises of its purpose-designed new ice-class flagship SH Minerva.

Recognizing that guests may have postponed booking while awaiting this certainty and that the confirmation has arrived too late for them to take advantage of its Cruise Like a Swan return celebration, Swan Hellenic has extended it for an additional month. So now all guests have until Oct. 31 to take advantage of extra savings including 20 percent off its brochure prices, a gift of $300 on-board spending per person, no supplement for single stateroom occupancy on selected cruises and a deposit of 15 percent when booking. In addition, the  all-inclusive cruise will be protected by Swan Hellenic’s simplified no-quibble cancellation policy.

“We’re delighted we can embark on our inaugural season as planned and happy to spread the joy by extending our Cruise Like a Swan celebration,” said Andrea Zito, Swan Hellenic CEO, in a press statement. “We can’t wait to welcome you aboard to see what others don’t, finally experiencing the elegant Scandi-design interiors with open views, the gourmet cuisine, expert lectures and insightful expeditions to some of the most awe-inspiring places on earth that we have worked so hard to create.”
