Why Choose Voyages to Antiquity  

Why Choose Voyages to Antiquity

 

Voyages to Antiquity have created a cruise experience which is designed for travellers who want to understand more about the history, culture and natural wonders of the ancient world. Aegean Odyssey, is perfectly suited to their destination-rich itineraries whilst their lecture programme connects you with the places you'll visit before you even go ashore.

 Why Choose Voyages to Antiquity

Small ship cruising at its best

The size of Aegean Odyssey allows them to visit harbours other vessels cannot reach, meaning they can offer a broader range of destinations. You can cruise the Gironde River and berth in the heart of Bordeaux and sail up the Guadalquivir River into the centre of Seville. Aegean Odyssey is also ideally sized to access the smaller Mediterranean ports and islands. The on-board experience is a little different, too: you'll discover a friendly and congenial atmosphere that enables you to get to know your like-minded fellow travellers. Whether it’s over dinner, in conversation about a lecture or on your designated shore excursion coach, friendships are easily formed. Passengers also appreciate the informal dress code – there’s no need to dress up, cutting down on the amount of luggage you need.

 Outstanding itineraries

Outstanding itineraries

Voyages to Antiquity pride themselves on the destinations they offer; from the famous sites to the lesser known but equally stunning places, they have all been carefully selected in conjunction with noted historians. Some of their itineraries have a theme at their heart, such as The Crusades or Byzantine history, while others take you across continents and combine outstanding sites. The itineraries are planned so that Aegean Odyssey often overnights in port. You'll soon find that evenings are the perfect time to enjoy an aperitif or a stroll ashore.

Fascinating sites on shore

Fascinating sites on shore

You might be surprised to read this on a cruise operator’s website, but Voyages to Antiquity believe that your enjoyment ashore is as important as your experience on board. In fact, on many of their Mediterranean cruises, you’ll likely spend as much time on land as at sea. After all, the reason for taking a cruise with Voyages to Antiquity is to see the many wonderful places which are easily accessible from the coast. Their included shore excursions use the very best guides and you'll also have the use of your own Quietvox device which enables you to hear your guide even in the busiest places. As many Voyages to Antiquity clients are well travelled and may have visited some places before, they have introduced a choice of included sightseeing tours and over 25 new ports of call.

 Travel with the experts

Travel with the experts

Accompanying you on each cruise are celebrated guest speakers who have been carefully selected for their knowledge of the areas you are due to visit and their ability to bring the history of these remarkable civilisations and cultures to life. Lecturers include historians, professors, archaeologists and more, all well regarded in their respective fields.
Topics are as varied as Iceland’s Frozen Secrets, Greek Legends in the Operas of Gluck and Stravinsky, Was Picasso a Genius?, and Indiana Jones Meets Horticulture. Lectures generally take place in the comfort of the Ambassador Lounge, often after dinner in preparation for the next day’s port of call or during a day at sea.

 Unparalleled value

Unparalleled value

Voyages to Antiquity believe in offering exceptional value for money by including the things that matter most. You'll find that sightseeing tours, land stays and gratuities are extra on many cruise lines, which can amount to significant sums over the course of your holiday. Once you're onboard Aegean Odyssey, there is very little to budget for - they have even included a choice of wine with dinner (beer or soft drinks if you prefer)! And little touches - such as bottled water on shore excursions and good quality bedding - really do make the difference.

 A great deal for single passengers

A great deal for single passengers

Voyages to Antiquity cruises are an excellent choice if you are travelling on your own. They offer low supplements, dedicated single cabins and a friendly atmosphere onboard Aegean Odyssey - a great incentive to travel solo. You'll find many cruises with a supplement as low as 15% in their 26 single cabins, all equipped for one passenger with a European sized bed and well-designed storage. Keep an eye out for special offers featuring lower or no single supplement. As you'll go ashore on the included shore excursions with the same group of people each time, it's really easy to get to know your fellow passengers. The open-seating dining policy furthers this camaraderie - you can join new acquaintances for dinner each evening. It's the perfect environment for making new friends.
