Stretch your horizons even further
'Clipper' Voyages 2001: explore new horizons


Swan Hellenic's Clipper Voyages offer an exciting opportunity to discover intriguing areas of the world not featured in our Minerva programme, but in the same award-winning style aboard the Clipper Adventurer. Discovery the completely different aspects of the New World, Maritime America and explore North America's eastern seaboard from Halifax in Maritime Canada to Savannah in the deep south.

Expedition cruising

Following the SELL OUT success of our first expedition cruise to the Amazon, this year there was another opportunity to travel south of the equator to explore Colonial Brazil and the Amazon plus a new option - to venture north to Maritime Canada.

Yacht-style Cruising

For these exceptional journeys we have exclusively chartered Clipper Adventurer and Clipper Odyssey. Both are beautifully appointed and accommodate just 100 or so passengers.

Clipper Adventurer is a highly regarded ship with the feel of a private yacht, chartered exclusively for our passengers. Life on board is informal, enhanced by an elegant decor, friendly service and meals, prepared to order, served in a single-seating dining room. An added interest is that the ship operates an open-bridge policy.

Clipper Adventurer is purpose-built to take advantage of every interesting viewpoint, by close-cruising the shore and venturing into bays or inlets denied to larger vessels.
