Voyages to Antiquity & American Queen Steamboat Company


Voyages to Antiquity

Voyages to Antiquity's 2018/19 cruise program encompasses the travel highlights of three continents. In Asia, experience the iconic Golden Triangle of India like never before, lose yourself among the glittering pagodas of Burma, discover the colonial charm of Malacca and unwind on the enchanting beaches of the Maldives. In Africa, spot the 'big five' on a classic safari, step back in time to the glory days of ancient Egypt and haggle for bargains in a bustling Moroccan souk. And in Europe, enjoy early spring in the Mediterranean as you sail from the southern shores of Spain to the cultural treasure-trove of Athens.

Classically elegant, the Aegean Odyssey, provides the friendliness and the more personal service of a smaller ship and an intimate atmosphere on board.  Carrying an average of 350 guests, the Aegean Odyssey’s advantage is her size, and the ability to visit ports too small for larger vessels and navigate close to scenic islands.  Voyages to Antiquity provides a unique and personal cruise holiday experience with exceptional value offered and many inclusions in your cruise fare that costs extra elsewhere.  These include land excursions, all meals on-board, wine, beer or soft drink with dinner, gratuities for your cabin steward and restaurant staff, port taxes and transfers to baggage handling between overseas airports, hotels and the ship.  Add to this the expert company of guest speakers on each cruise and the unique experiences planned ashore at certain ports, and you’ll soon discover why so many experienced cruise passengers prefer the small-ship differences.
