Not your ‘usual ’ Caribbean cruise

In­tro­duc­ing multi award-win­ning, ex­pert-led, cul­tur­ally im­mer­sive Caribbean travel ad­ven­tures with Voy­ages to An­tiq­uity

Timeless Travels Magazine - - TRAVELLER’S TALE -

Voy­agesto An­tiq­uity has won award af­ter award for its unique, peer­lessly im­mer­sive cul­tural cruise ex­pe­ri­ences. In­ter­na­tion­ally renowned guest lec­tur­ers ac­com­pany ev­ery jour­ney, pro­vid­ing in­sights into sub­jects as di­verse as art, his­tory, ar­chae­ol­ogy, botany and viti­cul­ture. A range of ex­pertly planned, imag­i­na­tive shore ex­cur­sions (most in­cluded in your hol­i­day price) re­veals both the high­lights and off-the­beaten-track gems of a des­ti­na­tion, and in­vites you to en­joy fas­ci­nat­ing per­sonal en­coun­ters which truly add an ex­tra di­men­sion of ap­pre­ci­a­tion.

El­e­gant Aegean Odyssey is your home away from home. Host­ing an av­er­age of 350 pas­sen­gers, this is no ‘float­ing city’. She is small enough to put in at more char­ac­ter­ful ports in­ac­ces­si­ble to the mega-ships, there are no queues to em­bark or dis­em­bark, the ser­vice is much more per­sonal and you get plenty of time to in­ter­act with the ac­com­pa­ny­ing ex­perts. Yet on the other hand, she is large enough to of­fer a su­perb se­lec­tion of on­board fa­cil­i­ties, in­clud­ing two din­ing venues, sev­eral com­fort­able lounges

and bars, a spa cen­tre and well-stocked li­brary. Cab­ins are spa­cious, modern and in­tel­li­gently de­signed. Solo trav­ellers, so of­ten rel­e­gated to sec­ond class sta­tus, are very well catered for aboard Aegean

Odyssey, with more than 30 roomy ded­i­cated sin­gle cab­ins across a va­ri­ety of cat­e­gories at a min­i­mal sup­ple­ment.

Though VTA is best known for its Mediter­ranean cruises to an­cient civil­i­sa­tions, from Novem­ber 2017 through March 2018 it will be op­er­at­ing a full pro­gramme of jour­neys around Cuba and the Caribbean. Few small ships serve this sun-drenched re­gion, and even fewer place as much em­pha­sis on the en­thralling cul­ture and his­tory as well as the breath­tak­ing beauty. There is no bet­ter way to ex­pe­ri­ence the likes of Cuba, Ja­maica, Bar­ba­dos, An­tigua, St Lu­cia, the mag­nif­i­cent Maya ruins of Mex­ico’s Yu­catan Penin­sula, and so much more.

This win­ter pro­gramme is partly in­spired by the work of his­to­rian and jour­nal­ist Dr Car­rie Gib­son, au­thor of Em­pire’s Cross­roads: A His­tory of the Caribbean from Colum­bus to the Present

Day. And in­deed, Dr Gib­son will be join­ing guests aboard Aegean Odyssey her­self in De­cem­ber and Jan­uary to share her il­lu­mi­nat­ing thoughts on the re­gion.
