Voyages to Antiquity offers shorter cruises in 2011

Voyages to Antiquity's 2011 programme offers a host of new features including pre and/or post-cruise hotel packages, a variety of shorter cruise lengths, new destinations and great value pricing.

As well as two-week voyages, it now features shorter cruises such as a seven-night sailing around the Greek Islands exploring Greek history from the emergence of the Minoans to the rise of Byzantium. These shorter duration cruises are designed to appeal to a wider audience of travellers;

The majority of our itineraries in 2011 include pre-and/or post-cruise stays in top-class hotels in Rome, Athens, Istanbul, and Cairo included in the fare. These provide guests with a chance to relax before their voyage or the opportunity to end their holiday exploring one of these remarkable cities. Guests have the flexibility to opt out of the hotel stays and receive a credit against their cruise fare.

New destinations include a circumnavigation of the Black Sea visiting ports in Georgia, Russia, Ukraine, and Bulgaria in July 2011.

New itineraries will also include destinations in Corsica and Sardinia as well as a return to Libya as part of two North Africa itineraries. Another exciting new itinerary from Rome to Limassol explores the legacy of the Crusades.

In 2011, Voyages to Antiquity continues its commitment to offering passengers outstanding value including:
Scheduled economy class flights, usually on British Airways
Shore excursions as detailed in each itinerary
Selected wine with dinner
On-board gratuities for cabin and restaurant staff

Commenting on the launch of the 2011 brochure, David Yellow, Managing Director of Voyages to Antiquity said: “Our new brochure not only offers new itineraries, but we have now packaged the product to be more flexible and appealing to a wider range of cruisers who may not have as much holiday time or may be looking for second holiday experience but are still looking for a trip which is culturally-stimulating.”

Fares start from £1,495 per person, including shore excursions, gratuities to shipboard staff, wine, beer, and soft drinks at dinner. Guest lecturers and celebrated speakers will continue to bring to life the art, history and culture of the Mediterranean.
