On 17 January 2022 Swan Hellenic announced that the nine-day maiden cruise of its new ship SH Minerva had been a huge success, with guests expressing their approval both in person and in many enthusiastic social media posts during and after their cultural expedition cruise.

The positive notes encompassed everything from the comfort, amenities, cuisine and artistic onboard entertainment, to the lectures and zodiac expeditions.

Swan Hellenic, having built a next-generation ice-class ship, responded by laying on a new 13-day polar cruise of the Antarctic Peninsula and South Shetland Islands, Beyond the Antarctic Circle, departing Ushuaia on 20 February, while also opening to bookings the limited remaining accommodation on its chartered 13-day Antarctic Peninsula Discovery Cruise , departing Ushuaia on 8 February.
