Boutique cruise line, Voyages To Antiquity, has made its first ever visit to UK shores with its 350-passenger ship, Aegean Odyssey.
The cruise ship arrived in Falmouth, England at 7 a.m. this morning as part of a 24-day ‘Grand European Voyage’. The ship will depart at 11 p.m. this evening with further calls to Dartmouth this Thursday and Dover on Saturday, where the itinerary concludes.
Aegean Odyssey will then set sail from Dover on a 15-day ‘The Best of France & Portugal’ itinerary which ends in Lisbon.
Voyages To Antiquity will visit UK shores again in 2017 with a dedicated ex-UK season from London Tilbury and a sailing from Scotland, out of Greenock.
The 2017 UK season will visit 30 new destinations, beginning on June 29, with a 15-day ‘Iceland, Faroes & Shetlands’ cruise from Tilbury, which includes visits to Lerwick, Shetland Islands; Torshavn, Faroe Islands; and five ports in Iceland. The same itinerary also departs in August.
In July, guests can enjoy a 27-night round-Britain cruise, which can also be booked as 16-night cruises from Tilbury or Greenock. Highlights from Tilbury include Guernsey in the Channel Islands, the Isles of Scilly, Liverpool, Douglas in the Isle of Man, as well as Stornoway and Oban in Scotland. The 27-night cruise and those who join the ship in Greenock will then visit Port Ellen in Scotland, Killybegs, Glengarriff, Dublin and Cork in Ireland, as well as Cardiff in Wales, and Jersey in the Channel Islands.
