With one year to go before Voyages to Antiquity charters Aegean Odyssey to a long-term partner, the company’s Managing Director Joss Dewing told SCN ‘we are currently exploring options that allow Voyages to Antiquity to continue to evolve the award-winning cruise tour programme we are renowned for into 2020 and beyond.’

In April 2020, United States-based non-profit tour operator Road Scholar, which specialises in educational tours for the over 50s, will charter Aegean Odyssey through to 2023.

‘This charter is currently planned to last for three years. During the charter, the ship will continue to be operated by Voyages to Antiquity,’ noted Dewing.

2019 season of Med and North Europe

He also added, ‘there are no changes to the 2019 season which will remain on sale, and no guest bookings will be in any way impacted.’

The ship is sailing in the Mediterranean most of this year with a summer programme of North European itineraries in June and July.

Voyages to Antiquity's 350-passenger Aegean Odyssey focuses on the history, cultural treasures and natural wonders of the destinations visited.

‘We look forward to continuing to deliver memorable passenger experiences, for Aegean Odyssey’s planned 2019 season of cruises throughout Europe,’ Dewing said.
