RELAXING TRAVEL THROUGH THE HEART OF EUROPE:
Enjoy discovering a wide variety of destinations in 2001 aboard the Swiss Crystal as you slip leisurely from one country to another. River cruising brings you all the pleasures of a "grand tour" but none of the problems, such as constant repacking and tiring overland travel.
To cruise along a great river gives a completely different insight of the one country or several it passes through. You'll glide to the heart of each destination in utmost comfort and then step ashore to see castles and gardens, visit art galleries and vineyards, hear concerts and enjoy idling away evenings in picturesque old towns.
THE BENEFITS WHICH SET SWAN HELLENIC APART
You don't have to read the small print to find out what's included in a Swan Hellenic river cruise. Because unlike other operators, everything is - apart from personal expenses such as drinks and travel insurance.
A full programme of excursions, not just a few here and there, is covered by your fare. They'll show you what's best and most interesting and take you to less familiar places you might not discover on your own. If you wish, explore independently: with Swan Hellenic your time is your own to do
As you cruise, Guest Speakers with a wide and fascinating knowledge of the area will share their insight with you. Listen to their talks and you’ll really see the sights in every dimension, far more enjoyable than simple sightseeing.
Travel directly to and from Swiss Crystal is by scheduled aircraft and comfortable coach, escorted by Swan Hellenic staff to ensure all runs smoothly. Having completed your journey, this lovely vessel will be your floating hotel for your entire holiday.
Every cruise is exclusively for Swan Hellenic passengers and, because Swiss Crystal is small, you'll never feel part of a crowd either aboard or when exploring ashore.
And there are no fixed seating plans in the dining room and no-one throughout your holiday will expect a tip. All gratuities aboard and ashore are yet another important item included in your fare.
