Want to perfect your handiwork with a paintbrush, get to grips with Tai Chi, or learn the art of needlework? Join Swan Hellenic’s recently refurbished ship, mv Minerva, for a 15-day Passage to Oman cruise and try your hand at a new skill.
Passengers on board the Middle Eastern cruise can make the most of the ship’s enhanced facilities during their time at sea and take part in a range of workshops and masterclasses. Tai Chi master, Qu Leilei, will join passengers on board the ship to teach them the ancient art of body and mind relaxation whilst Sophie Long, who is trained in more than 30 embroidery techniques, will also be hosting fascinating needlework workshops.
The Passage to Oman cruise starts from £1,595 per person (based on two people sharing an inside cabin). The cruise departs from Safaga (Egypt) – overnight and calls at Djibouti, Salalah (Oman), Muscat (Oman) – overnight, Khasab (Oman) and Dubai (United Arab Emirates) – overnight. Price is based on a 21 November 2012 departure.
Masterclasses on board other Swan Hellenic cruises can include painting, bridge, writing, singing and wine tasting.
