Sleek and stylish vessels
Swan Hellenic hand picked some of the world’s finest river cruise vessels. No matter which ship you cruise on and where you sail with us, you can be sure of stylish surroundings and impressive facilities. What’s more, four of Swan Hellenic’s ships have been exclusively chartered by Shearings – you won’t find these cruises with any other operator. Choose from the elegant four-star MPS Da Vinci, the beautifully designed MPS Rotterdam, the warm and friendly MV Virginia and the welcoming MV Esmeralda.
Superb value for money
River cruising’s not only a relaxing way to travel – it also offers unbeatable value for money. All meals – including full breakfasts, refreshing lunches and tempting dinners – are included in the price. Terrific on-board entertainment is also included, and great value shore excursions are available at all ports of call. There’s certainly never a dull moment on a Shearings river cruise!
Enjoy a warm and friendly welcome
River cruise vessels are smaller and more intimate than ocean liners, which means you’ll find a convivial atmosphere where it’s so easy to get to know your fellow travelers. You’ll also quickly get to know the attentive staff, for whom nothing is too much trouble.
Admire the ever-changing views
A unique aspect of river cruising is the constantly-changing scenery. Take in gorgeous landscapes, beautiful countryside, quaint villages, bustling cities and famous landmarks from the comfort of your cabin or relaxing on the sun deck. You’ll be sure to have lots of photographs to share your fond memories with loved ones back home.
Tasty dishes served fresh every day
Food is a vital part of any cruise experiences – and Swan Hellenic’s river cruises are no exception. Your on-board chef will work hard to provide you with a mouth-watering array of culinary delights throughout your voyage. You’ll find a different menu every day, so you’ll always have something new to look forward to every dinnertime.
All ashore that’s going ashore
Whether visiting iconic landmarks, exploring captivating capital cities or strolling around colourful floral gardens, there’s so much to see on our shore excursions. Swan Hellenic’s team of experts has carefully planned each excursion programme to make sure you don’t miss a thing. To really make the most of your time ashore, you can prebook your shore excursions before you travel saving 10% on the on-board price. With everything from guided city tours with local experts, spectacular shows and the chance to sample the local wines, these excursions offer the ideal way to fully experience the cultures and traditions of your ports of call.
