      The launch of a new sailing season is always an exciting time for us here at Voyages to Antiquity – all the more so for Europe 2019 because the program includes some spectacular new destinations. 

      Aegean Odyssey will be sailing the Baltic for the very first time, revealing the splendid architecture and extraordinary artistic heritage of St Petersburg and the great cities of Scandinavia. Also making its debut will be Norway’s North Cape and the opportunity to cross the Arctic Circle to experience nature at its most pristine and majestic. And Voyages to Antiquity will be making a welcome return to the historic resort-cities of the Black Sea – Odessa, Constanza and Varna – after several seasons away.

      This exciting range of new itineraries is now available to book and view online. Our preview brochure is also available to download

      AEGEAN ODYSSEY -
      The best in small-ship cruising

       

      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.
