Swan Hellenic is offering a one-month adventure to Central America this winter. The special cruise will take guests from the coast of California to the lush jungles of Costa Rica, to the wonders of the Mayan civilization, all in one unique itinerary. Topping off the trip is a swing through New Orleans.

Highlights of the cruise include Napa Valley Wine Tours, Mayan Art and Architecture tours, and an exploration of Costa Rican Volcanoes. A particularly strong selling point is that passengers can begin and end their vacation with domestic flights (departure is in San Francisco, and the end point is New Orleans).

The cruise, which takes place from Jan. 26-Feb. 23, 2006, will visit Mexico, Costa Rica, Honduras, Guatemala and Belize. Ports of Call include San Francisco, San Diego, Pichilinque, Loreto, Manzanillo,Hautulco, Puntarenas,Caldera, Panama Canal, Puerto Limon, Puerto Cortez,Santa Tomas, Belize City, Progreso, and New Orleans

The cruise can be purchased in segments, as well. Cruise M603 is from Jan. 26-Feb. 9 and Cruise M604 is from Feb. 9-23.

Prices for the one-month cruise begin at $154 per day. As with all Swan Hellenic cruises, the fare includes expert guest speakers, a full choice of shore excursions at each port of call, all tips and gratuities to staff on board and ashore, entrance fees to places visited and port taxes. Passengers can extend the cruise with pre or post cruise tours.

A leader in discovery cruising for more than 50 years, Swan Hellenic combines the elegance and distinction of an English Country House with enriching and inspiring discovery adventure. The line’s highly acclaimed new ship, Minerva II, continues this tradition, with itineraries that explore “hidden gems" off the beaten tourist track as well as those famous "must see" destinations, giving guests the chance to experience the cultures, traditions and lifestyles of each destination. The line targets mature travelers.
