Voyages to Antiquity adds 6 new countries and 17 new ports


Voyages to Antiquity has added 6 new countries and 17 new ports of call to its new 2019 programme on board Aegean Odyssey, the cruise line’s small 350 passenger ship.

She will sail to Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Poland and Germany – together with 17 new ports of call including Stockholm Helsinki and Tromso feature in next years brand new European programme. 

The cultural cruise line’s 2019 programme marks the long-awaited return to the Black Sea, with stops in Varna in Bulgaria, Constanza in Romania and Odessa in the Ukraine.

A maiden voyage around the Baltic includes three days in St Petersburg (Russia) to best appreciate its artistic and architectural wonders. And another brand-new itinerary takes the small ship Aegean Odyssey to Norway’s Arctic North Cape, the legendary ‘Land of the Midnight Sun’, to experience nature at its most pristine and majestic.
