Sharon’s story is one we enjoyed and one we think many others will also appreciate. Her love of photography […]
Ecologist Andy Bunten is one of our expert guest lecturers and he joined Aegean Odyssey earlier in the year on her British Isles sailing. Andy offered several interesting talks, but he also spent a lot of time out on the open decks, chatting with guests and looking for seabirds and marine life. We have a […]

Guest lecturer Hugh Ellwood provides us with a very interesting blog today, looking at kings and caliphs: Arab conquests and a masterpiece of cooperation between the Christian King and the Islamic Caliph. It all centres around Spain and a time when in Western Europe, the ‘Dark Ages’ were upon us. However, at the same time […]
Myanmar (Burma) is one of the most interesting places on earth, we know, we’ve been there several times and we are looking forward to introducing new guests to this enchanting land during our winter season. One place we must always visit is the Shwedagon Pagoda. It is an absolute marvel and given its religious and […]
The world’s oldest intact shipwreck has been found in the Black Sea and archaeologists say it has been there for around 2,400 years.

At Voyages to Antiquity, we have created a cruise experience which is designed for travellers who want to understand more about the history, culture and natural wonders of the ancient world.

Today, our ‘Gourmet Traveller’ blog series is focusing on the flavourful delicacies and traditional dishes that await us in Mumbai – one of our favourite Asian destinations.

“Hygge” is a Danish word that is impossible to translate and difficult to define, but loosely speaking it is that very particular concept of conviviality and comfort that lies at the heart of Danish contentment. One may be tempted to think of it as having to do with candles, open fireplaces and warm blankets, but […]
Aegean Odyssey will call at Alexandria (Al-Iskandariyya in Arabic), Egypt, later this month and we’re incredibly excited to be taking our guests back to this ancient land. Egypt is a place filled with wonderful history, culture and intrigue, and it’s a destination that we fell in love with several years ago when Aegean Odyssey visited […]
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.
