The godmother was Johanna Mäkelä, Finland’s first professor of food culture and wife of Helsinki City Mayor Juhana Vartiainen, with Mayor Vartiainen also present, along with Swan Hellenic CEO Andrea Zito and Helsinki Shipyard CEO Carl-Gustaf Rotkirch with senior management.

The celebration follows global supply chain disruptions and recent spikes in COVID-19 cases in Finland, which caused Swan Hellenic to take the difficult decision to delay the start of Minerva’s inaugural season, preferring to cancel its first two cruises rather than risk in any way compromising the highest standards of quality and safety.

At the christening, Helsinki Shipyard Project Manager Jonas Packalén said, “We are glad to see this day finally, following the many global challenges that made our task far from easy, adding, Our special thanks to everyone involved in the project for their unstinting dedication and superb work!”

Swan Hellenic CEO Andrea Zito said, “I, too, would like to congratulate everyone at Helsinki for their impeccable work in difficult circumstance and the tight safety measures which have kept SH Minerva a safe environment at all times”, adding, The vessel has been completed after only 26 month from the signing of the contract  which is a remarkable achievement”, and “We now very much look forward to taking our guests to see what others don’t, exploring in exceptional comfort and style.”
