We are working closely with our trade partners and doing everything possible to minimise disruption.

Our current Athens to Athens roundtrip, Greek Islands cruise which departed Athens on 26 April 2019 has continued as planned.

Voyages to Antiquity would like to apologise for the inconvenience these cancellations will cause to our guests. The mechanical issue experienced was unavoidable and unforeseeable.

We have been assured that, following its period in dry dock, Aegean Odyssey will be back in service in time to fulfil the remainder of its scheduled cruise timetable, starting with the Rome-Venice and associated future Grand Voyage itineraries departing from 7 September 2019.
