Hi there, although we've not been on Minerva, having travelled on her (temporary) replacement Minerva II which was an ex-Rennaisance ship, we were looking at travelling on Minerva a couple of years back as all the tours are included in the price.
Both the ship and the line seem to have a solid following, which has to be a good comment on the service & experience.
Hope you have an amazing time,
Alan & Kartrina
