Two pairs of cruises in the 2024 Maris series aboard the SH Diana can be combined to create double voyages departing from Tromsø in July and Lisbon in August.
“We’re immensely proud of the spectrum of talents our partnership will be bringing Swan Hellenic voyagers in 2024, creating dining experiences to match and enhance their explorations aboard and ashore,” said Daniel Lehmann, president of JRE-Jeunes Restaurateurs.
