11 Night Cruise sailing roundtrip from Istanbul aboard Aegean Odyssey. 2 night hotel stay pre-cruise in Istanbul.
MV AEGEAN ODYSSEY is a premium class ship that was rebuilt to cater for cruising in the coastal waters of the central and eastern Mediterranean. The vessel provides the best features of a mid-size ship such as passenger space, a choice of restaurants and stability in inclement weather.
Originally a vessel carrying up to 570 passengers, Aegean Odyssey’s new configuration includes generously-sized suites, junior suites and staterooms with balconies. She now carries an average of 350 passengers. By creating these new staterooms we have added a dimension of spaciousness to the vessel and this has enabled us to create a special level of accommodation entitled “Balcony Class”.
Classically elegant, but far from stuffy and formal, Aegean Odyssey has been designed to offer the sophisticated traveller every comfort at sea.
She offers the personal service and intimate surroundings of a small ship, has the ability to visit ports that are too small for larger vessels, and navigate around the scenic islands of the Adriatic and Mediterranean.
Voyages to Antiquity’s new springtime itinerary is a fascinating cruise circumnavigating the Aegean. Starting with a two-night hotel stay in Istanbul, Aegean Odyssey takes you on a journey exploring the history, culture and myths of ancient Greece and Turkey. The voyage includes visits to the remarkably well-preserved ruins of Ephesus and Pergamon, the crusader stronghold on Rhodes, the temples of sacred Delos and what remains of ancient Troy. You will also see the white-washed villages of the Greek Isles and sail through some of the most stunning scenery in the world.
Visiting a dozen ports of call in Greece and Turkey, history, legends and myths come to life as you cruise through the beautiful Aegean waters in the early spring sunshine.
