Voyages to Antiquity Cruises
Voyages to Antiquity is a one ship company, which is marketed as a "premium, small-ship product". Voyages of Antiquity provides historical and culture-rich cruises throughout the Mediterranean and Asia. The majority of cruises are all-inclusive, with the expense of most shore excursions, gratuities, wine and beer all included in the fare.
Dining venues onboard include Marco Polo and the Terrace Cafe and Grill. The Terrace Cafe and Grill is home to "Tapas on the Terrace", while it also offers a casual buffet restaurant. Although the emphasis onboard is on education rather than entertainment, there are still low-key forms of entertainment available such as pop ensemble or a pianist playing show tunes. The lack of casinos and showrooms onboard leaves space for numerous enrichment opportunities. Due to the educational focus of Voyages to Antiquity, cruises onboard this ship tend to be best suited to well educated, open minded cruisers who are eager to learn.

Discover the Earth’s Oldest Secrets on the MV Aegean Odyssey
Any cruise aboard the MV Aegean Odyssey will take you to several different countries. The MV Aegean is essentially a costal cruising ship, since hugging the shoreline allows its guests to spend the maximum of time ashore. The smaller size of the Aegean Odyssey, with on average only 350 passengers, is advantageous since it means that the ship can reach less accessible ports. It also means that you can sleep in splendor right in the heart of a city! The destinations and excursions are chosen under the guidance of noted historians, so you can rest assured you will do much more than just tick off the top tourist spots.
The cruises around the Mediterranean are mostly linked to the Roman domination in this area between 200BC and 200AD.

It’s hard to beat that feeling when you are learning about something right at the spot where it happened! Some of the captivating countries you will visit include Cyprus, Greece, Jordan, Malta, Morocco, Sicily and Italy.
