Swan Hellenic has announced a return to its Greek routes for 2015, with a journey through classical history on Minerva and back to where it all began.
Minerva will also set sail to the lesser-visited Azores for the first time, along with a string of smaller towns along the Dalmatian coast.
To celebrate the launch of the new cruises, the line is offering an early booking discount of up to 10% for new customers when booked by June 30.
Colin Wilson, group sales director at All Leisure Group, said: "We’re all very excited to be continuing the celebrations of 2014 by re-exploring Minerva’s early routes next year. The new itineraries all offer world class speakers, unique excursions and exciting new ports for guests to really get to the heart of the destination. We hope the 10% discount will encourage bookings and ensure agents build up their commission early this year."
As an example of itineraries, ‘The Sparkling Aegean’ 15-day cruise takes passengers to monasteries, ruins and Santorini’s caldera. Island visits include Skyros, Symi and Milos, with prices starting from £2,490 per person, based on a September 16 departure. It includes flights, all gratuities, transfers, meals, a series of guest speaker talks and a programme of tailor-made shore excursions, worth up to £650 per person.
