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. There small ship, Aegean Odyssey, is perfectly suited to destination-rich itineraries while the lecture programme connects you with the places you'll visit before you even go ashore.
Benifits of Small Ship Cruising
The size of our ship allows us to visit harbours other vessels cannot reach, meaning we can offer a broader range of destinations. We berth in the heart of Southeast Asia’s great cities including Bangkok, Yangon (Rangoon) and Ho Chi Minh City, sail up the Guadalquivir River into the centre of Seville and are ideally sized to access the smaller Mediterranean ports and islands.
We pride ourselves on the destinations we 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 our itineraries have a theme at their heart, such as The Crusades or Byzantine history, while others take you across continents and combine outstanding sites.
Philosophy behind Voyages to Antiquity
Choosing a holiday is a big decision. We understand that before booking your cruise aboard Aegean Odyssey that you will want to know the philosophy behind Voyages to Antiquity. Our aim is to help you assess the meticulous planning of our itineraries, our policies aboard ship and the many features included in the price. We will create a cruise experience that is not only for the amateur or professional historian but also for people who simply want to understand the history, art, myths and architecture of the ancient world. 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.
