15 Night Cruise sailing from Tilbury roundtrip aboard Aegean Odyssey. Hotel stay pre-cruise in London.

There is a particular pleasure that comes with cruising aboard a smaller ship. Hosting an average of just 350 passengers, Aegean Odyssey is no ‘floating city’. She is small enough to sail rivers and put into the more characterful ports inaccessible to the ‘mega-ships’, the service is more personal and you get plenty of time to interact with the onboard experts.

Yet on the other hand, she is large enough to offer a superb selection of amenities, including two dining venues, several comfortable lounges and bars, a relaxing spa centre and well-stocked library. Cabins are spacious, modern and intelligently designed, and 39 cabins across a range of categories (including balcony) are set aside for solo travellers at low supplement.

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.

THE BENEFITS OF SMALL SHIP CRUISING In contrast to the massive vessels cruising to and from the major ports of the Mediterranean, we have a mid-sized ship adapted for island and coastal cruising. This means that Aegean Odyssey can visit smaller, less crowded harbours and sail closer the coast enabling you to really appreciate the magical views. As we carry only an average of 350 passengers, our ship is ideal for those who dislike travelling around with hordes of people. This boutique-style cruising tends to be more expensive to operate than larger ships. 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.
