Key highlights of the 2014 cruise season

  • An all-new Spring Grand Voyage. Sailing from Athens to Istanbul via Egypt, this 28-day cruise-tour kicks off the 2014 season with a comprehensive exploration of the Roman Empire and Ancient Greece.
  • The rich history of the Black Sea region. Voyages to Antiquity offers four sailings to the Black Sea region in 2014, including the line’s first cruise combining the Greek Islands and the Black Sea.
  • A renewed focus on Istanbul and Athens and the surrounding region. The 2014 programme includes two different itineraries between these iconic cities, which can also be combined to form a very special cruise of the region.
  • New ports of call. Guests will have the opportunity to visit one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World in Bodrum, Turkey (the remains of the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus), as well as the beautiful Greek islands of Syros and Kos.
  • Says David Yellow, managing director of Voyages to Antiquity: “These latest voyages offer our guests a chance to explore a number of new ports as well as revisiting our most popular destinations, including the overnights that we know our guests love.

    “With our award winning lecture programme and carrying an average of only 350 guests, each itinerary immerses our passengers in the history and cultures of the places we visit.

    “The Black Sea has proved to be very popular so we have included three cruises focusing on this area, as well as adding a new itinerary combining Odessa and Sevastopol with the Greek Islands.”

    Brochure prices start from £2,295 per person for a 13-day cruise-tour, including scheduled flights. Prices also include free domestic flight connections via London from seven regional airports, shore excursions in most ports with complimentary bottled water, gratuities to cabin and restaurant staff as well as wine with dinner on board.
    Guests can save up to £1,200 per cabin when booking by 30 September 2013, and enjoy a flight upgrade to Club Europe if reserving categories A to D. Several itineraries feature a single supplement of just 15 per cent.
