Swan Hellenic has revealed that its third expedition cruise ship will be called SH Diana.
Named after the ancient Roman goddess of light, the moon, hunting and the wilderness, the polar expedition vessel will be the line’s largest ship when it launches in early 2023. It will join SH Minerva, and SH Vega, which is due to set sail this April.
It will boast a swimming pool, spa, panoramic sauna, gym, library, expedition laboratory and an observation lounge.
It will also feature a 4.6-megawatt diesel-electric hybrid-ready propulsion system with selective catalytic reduction and PC 6 ice-strengthened hull. It is currently being built at Helsinki Shipyard, where more than half the structure has been assembled.
Expedition day trips will be offered alongside kayaking, trekking and other activities.
