Spend the winter in south-east Asia on Swan Hellenic's Minerva

This winter, head to the southern shores on board Swan Hellenic’s classic ship Minerva and prolong the summer feeling on selected cruises to the Middle East (Jordan, Arabia and the Red Sea) and South East Asia (Japan, Indochina, Indonesia and India’s Malabar Coast). Cruises start from just £94 per person per day and include flights from and to the UK, gratuities and shore excursions if booked before 31 August 2014. Plus, for solo passengers there is no single supplement on outside cabins and a 50 per cent discount on single supplements on inside and balcony cabins, making it the perfect option for a relaxing winter escape.

For example, head to Burma and Beyond for a 16-day cruise from Colombo to Singapore on 4 December 2014. Enjoy the destinations with longer stays in ports of calls with two full days in Sri Lanka and three days to explore Burma’s exceptional capital Yangon. Price starts from just £2,499 – a saving of up to £1,466 per person.

Travels in Indochina includes some of the best cultural highlights in the region, from bustling Singapore, the Vietnamese Imperial city of Hue, the trading city of Hoi An and to the mythical Halong Bay. Departing from Singapore to Hong-Kong on 19 December 2014, prices for this cruise start from just £2,999 per person – a saving of up to £1,556 per person.
