New ports and unique events from Voyages to Antiquity in 2013

Voyages to Antiquity's 2013 programme explores the best of the ancient Mediterranean civilisations with 16 cruises from March to November 2013 including the new destinations of Carcassonne, Palma, Barcelona, the Island of Elba, Izmir and Jerusalem.

More time will be spent in ports to allow passengers the opportunity to enjoy the destinations; passengers sailing into or out of Venice on some itineraries will benefit from two nights on board Aegean Odyssey in this dazzling city.

Guests on Aegean Odyssey will spend two nights in Venice

While in Venice guests will be treated to a private evening visit to St Mark’s Basilica and a special lecture series presented by members of the city’s oldest families.

“These special events are proving very popular - we also arrange private evening visits to Athens’ fascinating Museum of Cycladic Art and offer passengers the opportunity for a private visit to Palazzo Gangi in Palermo. Those people travelling with Voyages to Antiquity will experience a different side to the destinations they visit,” said David Yellow, managing director of Voyages to Antiquity.

“Greece, Italy and Sicily continue to be popular as they offer a comprehensive way to visit all the major sites such as Athens and Pompeii as well as less well known places such as Delos, Herculaneum and Segesta. We’ve also added a second Black Sea cruise for 2013, due the popularity of the itinerary over the last two years.”

The 2013 programme builds on its award winning lecture programme. From renowned historians such as Mary Beard and Jonathan Phillips to military experts like General Sir Michael Rose and well-known journalists such as Martin Bell, the lecturers’ expert knowledge of the areas visited brings to life the history of these remarkable civilisations.

As demand from single guests grows in response to the mompany’s good value single pricing, eight new single cabins have been added to Aegean Odyssey taking the total of single cabins to 26 across all grades of accommodation.

Overall, prices continue to provide excellent value for money by including all shore excursions, gratuities to ship staff as well as wine/beer/soft drinks with dinner onboard, which with most other cruise lines are at additional cost.
