Summary: We enjoyed greatly our first cruise with Swan Hellenic in early December to Burma etc.which was a Saver Booking in mid October. As a result of the Discount and the included Excursions the Cruise was very good value supported by the quality accommodation, service and food during the journey across the Bay of Bengal and then concluding at Singapore. The flight home with Singapore Airlines was superb though slightly longer than we expected.

Though Minerva is a smaller ship with up to 300 passengers there were huge benefits in using the small swimming pool most days and walking and sun bathing on the decks at all times in a leisurely manner. The Lectures on this Cruise were superb and focussed on the Heritage and History of the Main Countries we visited as well as Asia itself. Eminent Lecturers were very approachable and involved in certain key visits and excursions.

Summary: The Round British Isles cruise has been one of my most enjoyable holidays ever. I was working out why and think it's all down to the way Swan gets everyone fired up to enjoy the excursions. You get a pre-cruise handbook, which tells you the history/background etc. to each destination and detailed descriptions of each trip.

Then there's a daily programme of lectures - none of them too heavy but all excellent. We had four speakers and they were all high calibre (two National Trust staff, a Bishop and a Wildlife expert). So by the time you leave the ship you're really looking forward to what's ahead. The costs of the trips (and all tips) are included, although there are also some paying ones e.g. steam train journey.

or zodiac safari. There's something for all levels of fitness/mobility at each destination. The ship has just been re-fitted and the public areas are classy. Good library, small but good hair/beauty centre with very keen prices.

Nice deck furniture but the pool is tiny. My cabin was functional but not exceptional. Open dining is nice, the food OK but a touch heavy (afternoon tea is a real sinker - but delicious). Drinks very reasonable, wine included on the (few) formal evenings.

Good, low-key entertainment e.g. quizzes, harpist, opera concerts but main evening activity for us was chatting to people we met. Passengers are mostly seasoned, savvy travellers. The majority have professional backgrounds and are pretty sprightly, even the elderly ones. Overall, good value for money and a lot of fun.

I now understand why so many are returned 'swanners' and I expect I shall be joining their ranks!
