Experience spectacular views as you cruise past Mt Vesuvius on a Voyages to Antiquity cruise.

Small things make a big difference, especially when you're on board a ship. And cruising the seas is a breeze when you strike the right combination of size, comfort and know-how.

Voyages to Antiquity's ship Aegean Odyssey is small in size but large at heart. The delightfully charming ship provides an intimate cruising experience, incorporating uniquely-crafted itineraries that highlight new discoveries, past masters and hidden gems of Europe.

You also have the opportunity to immerse yourself in culturally-rich regions, while embracing all the rest and relaxation you want.

Smaller ships aboard a Voyages to Antiquity cruise means schedules are a bit more relaxed and on average there are only 350 passengers per journey.

The Aegean Odyssey is a welcome difference from the larger mega liners on offer. As well as a more personalised experience, the ship's size means she can navigate the inland waterways like Spain's Guadalquivir River and is able to get closer into port in many places. Unlocking a unique combination of ocean and river cruising, this means you get best of both worlds. You'll spend longer in each destination and in many cases, you'll spend the night in port, so there are less days at sea and more time for you to enjoy the wonders of the city before you.

Voyages to Antiquity not only offers a classically elegant holiday but is also dedicated to enriching your mind. Carefully selected first class guest speakers, from historians to archaeologists, convey their knowledge of the history of these remarkable destinations and bring their cultures to life with daily lectures on board.

Cruise fares are exceptional value for money with inclusions such as shore excursions, 4 or 5-star hotel stays, onboard gratuities, wine, beer and soft drinks with evening meals – meaning there's not much left to pay for once you're on board.

If you're travelling on your own, you can rest assured that Voyages to Antiquity will provide you with a replenishing and fulfilling experience. There are low single-supplements, dedicated single cabins and an engaging atmosphere to appeal to even the most discerning traveller.

The 2018 Mediterranean cruising calendar is out and for the first time ever, Aegean Odyssey will do a complete journey around Great Britain. As well as 21 new ports of call, 2018 will also see the return of Egypt in October's itinerary which will give you a two-night hotel stay in Cairo.
