Swan Hellenic has taken delivery of its newest ship from the Helsinki Shipyard on Friday the 31st of March 2023.
SH Diana is the largest ship in Swan Hellenic’s fleet and is now sailing to Palermo for her inaugural cultural expedition cruise, the ten-night Mysteries of Carthage and the Moors.
The itinerary will take her guests to explore some of the most fascinating locations in North Africa before crossing the “Pillars of Hercules” to Seville and Lisbon.
Departing Lisbon on the 25th of April, the nine-night Historic Ports of the Western Seaboard will see her hugging the coasts of Spain, France, Belgium and the Netherlands to reach Amsterdam.
On the 4th of May, a Christening Ceremony with US luxury travel industry icon Valerie Wilson as Godmother will take place naming SH Diana.
The ship will then depart for the Scandinavian fjords and a full Arctic season.
Swan Hellenic’s CEO, Andrea Zito, said:
“We’re delighted to have taken delivery of this exceptionally beautiful and versatile new 5-star vessel.
“As the largest ship in our fleet, she is the first to be outfitted with large tender boats as well as expedition zodiacs, offering guests a wide variety of extraordinary in-depth experiences seeing what others don’t.”
