A Voyage to Antiquity cruise aims to open a window into the origins and genius of western civilisation. These journeys, however, are not only about history. As well as seeing breathtaking archaeological treasures you will also see some of the most beautiful scenery in the world and experience the magnificent food and wine of the Mediterranean.
THE BENEFITS OF SMALL SHIP CRUISING In contrast to the massive cruise ships cruising to and from the major ports of the Mediterranean, Voyages to Antiquity has a mid-sized ship adapted for island and coastal cruising. This means that the Aegean Odyssey can visit smaller, less crowded harbours and sail closer to the coast – enabling you to really appreciate the magical views.
As Voyages to Antiquity carries only an average of 350 passengers, the ship is ideal for those who dislike travelling around with hordes of people. If you like to avoid crowds, wander around beautiful islands, cruise remote inlets, visit charming villages and explore ancient sites that are inaccessible to others, then Aegean Odyssey is the ideal ship for you.
