Voyages to Antiquity
DISCOVER THE ART, HISTORY AND CULTURES OF THE ANCIENT WORLD
Between 200BC and 200AD, the Romans were the masters of the Mediterranean. Their commercial vessels sailed to every corner of the region and their armies occupied all the surrounding coastlands. Indeed, the most common Latin name for the Mediterranean was mare nostrum, “our sea”. The waters these ancient mariners sailed are today the home of Voyages to Antiquity. Our aim is to combine the excitement of exploring the remarkable classical civilisations of the Mediterranean with the excellent comfort and service of boutique-style cruising.
Aegean Odyssey is a premium class ship that is being especially rebuilt to cater for cruising in the coastal waters of the central and eastern Mediterranean. The vessel provides the best features of a small ship such as passenger space, a choice of restaurants and stability in inclement weather. It also has the personal service and intimate surroundings of a small ship. Other advantages of the ship’s size are that it is able visit ports that are too small for larger vessels, navigate around the scenic islands of the Adriatic and Mediterranean and can also pass through the Corinth Canal.
