Risen from the ashes-

British heritage cruise brand Swan Hellenic is to relaunch with two new expedition ships. [Bolsover news]

Set to be run by the same executives behind Russian river cruise line, Vodoho, the company will return in 2021 with the first of two new vessels currently under construction in the Helsinki Shipyard Oy in Finland. Both ships will carry just 152 guests and 120 crew, with the first launching into Antarctica in November 2021 and the second sailing from April 2022. Something positive after the demise of CMV.

Yes, good news but I think this will be quite a different product. Swan's ship Minerva carried over 300 pax in a 'country house' style environment. I suspect this is more a case of buying a name and 'heritage'. Swan Hellenic sailed interesting and different itineraries with a high cultural input but we're probably not 'expedition' cruises as such, at least not most of the time. It will be interesting to see if the new owners actually make reference to the ' heritage' on board...

Don't forget Tradewind Voyages that are starting up.

Hadn't heard of this but have now looked them up. Not sure what market they are going to appeal to, apart from a fairly wealthy one probably 😄
