Voyages to Antiquity

Discover hidden depths to your favourite destinations with small ship cruising at its best...

GeoTravelPartnerCombining the comfort and benefits of boutique-style cruising with the very best of cultural travel, Voyages to Antiquity offers an opportunity to explore the history, culture and natural wonders of the Eastern and Western Mediterranean, Northern France, Iceland, Ireland and the British Isles. And in 2017 we have our first ever programme of no-fly cruising from London.

Benefits include:

  • Included shore excursions
  • Lecture programme
  • Pre- & post cruise hotels
  • Wine with dinner on board
  • Gratuities on board

Our philosophy

We 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. Our small ship, Aegean Odyssey, is perfectly suited to our destination-rich itineraries while our lecture programme connects you with the places you’ll visit before you even go ashore.

MV Aegean Odyssey

Small ship cruising at its best

The size of our ship allows us to visit harbours other vessels cannot reach, meaning we can offer a broader range of destinations. Sailing from the UK for the first time in 2017, we can now offer passengers no-fly cruises departing London and Edinburgh, the chance to sail up the Guadalquivir River into the centre of Seville and are ideally sized to access the smaller Mediterranean ports and islands.

Outstanding itineraries

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.

Fascinating sites on shore

You might be surprised to read this on a cruise operator’s website, but we believe that your enjoyment ashore is as important as your experience on board. In fact, on many of our Mediterranean cruises, you’ll likely spend as much time on land as at sea. After all, we believe the reason for taking a cruise with us is to see the many wonderful places which are easily accessible from the coast.

Onboard

Travel with the experts

Accompanying you on each cruise are celebrated guest speakers who have been carefully selected for their knowledge of the areas we 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.

Onboard

Unparalleled value

We 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.

Onboard

A great deal for single passengers

Our cruises are an excellent choice if you are travelling on your own. We offer low supplements, dedicated single cabins and a friendly atmosphere on board our small ship – just some of the reasons why so many travel solo with us.
