Program #21369RJ
17 Days | 16 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Start of Program
Jul 29, 2014
This program begins in the late afternoon on Day 2 in London, England at the program hotel.
You will be staying at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel that night.
Location: London
Transportation to site: All participants who are arriving on the program start date and arranged their air travel through Road Scholar will be transferred from London Heathrow Airport or London Gatwick Airport to the program hotel. If you did not purchase your air through Road Scholar, you may join the designated group transfer as long as your flight arrives before or at the same time as the group flight. From London Heathrow, we recommend Piccadilly Line of the London Underground: this runs from the airport to Hammersmith Underground Station. Change on the same platform to District Line to the Gloucester Road Station for the Millennium Gloucester Hotel. There's a train every 4 to 6 minutes of an hour. The Gatwick Express runs a service into Victoria. From the terminus, you can take the Circle Line of the Underground to Gloucester Road Underground Station for the Millennium Gloucester Hotel.

Description: No matter which corner of the globe you choose to discover, after exploring ashore, you will always appreciate Minerva’s stately comforts: a relaxed lounge with entertainment, well-stocked library, restaurants, gym, Wheeler bar and Shackleton's bar. An elegant environment in which polished wood and gleaming brass are complemented by works of art and fresh flowers. With over 50 years experience in discovery cruising, Swan Hellenic knows all the ingredients for the perfect cruise. From the on board environment to inspiring itineraries, and from our knowledgeable reservations team to our European ship's officers and attentive crew, we are committed to providing you with the ultimate discovery cruise experience. You will travel with like-minded people and as you share the experiences of your voyage, you may find acquaintances turn into lasting friendships. Your cruise will be further enriched by the presence of distinguished speakers drawn from the academic, diplomatic and media worlds. Their presentations and the more informal conversations you can enjoy in the Darwin Lounge will really bring our destinations to life.
