We chose this cruise ( a cruise of a life time) because it commenced in Singapore then other ports where we disembarked at Mumbai then continued to the "Golden Triangle" by other means. We paid £11000-00 for a Deluxe ... Read more

We booked this cruise because we were attending a wedding in Malaysia at the end of February. The cruise was a perfect fit leaving Colombo, Sri Lanka, arriving in Singapore in time for our wedding. We would visit several places we had ... Read more

I was prepared to love this ship as the concept completely appeals to me: not a mega ship, emphasis on education and destinations. But my tiny, sterile, airless cabin ("Premium Outside" with a "partially obstructed" ... Read more

All depends what you want - I like a relaxing holiday, here we were up early every morning, off onto the red bus, herded around an ancient site, back on the bus...very organised, no down time, no scope for individual planning. Hard to get ... Read more

I have just returned from my first experience of cruising on the Aegean Odyssey from Venice to Istanbul and I must say it was most enjoyable in all respects. Voyages to Antiquity is particularly geared towards a clientele with an interest ... Read more

We are small boat travellers and picked the Aegean Odyssey in part for this reason. This is a clean ship with hospitable staff. The food is simple but good. The only criticism is the quality of the coffee in the morning. We would very much ... Read more

We started in Istanbul and ended there. The main focal point of the cruise was to see the ancient Greek ruins on the various islands and learn about their history. We were not disappointed. We had local guides on the various islands who ... Read more

We had a group of eight, and all had an excellent trip. Prior to boarding there were tours of Amman sites, Dead Sea, and Petra. For the most part, well done. This is an educational outing, and lecturers were outstanding. Voyages to ... Read more

We chose Voyages to Antiquity for several reasons: small ship, great itinerary, superb excursions and lecturers, playing bridge on board, and fantastic value. We were not disappointed. We started with 5 days in India: Delhi, Agra (and the ... Read more

This cruise combined a 5-day land tour of India's Golden Triangle -- Delhi, Agra (Taj Mahal) and Jaipur-- with sea voyages from Mumbai to Oman (Muscat and Salaleh) and Jordan (Aqaba, Petra, Amman). Fascinating itinerary, high-quality land ... Read more

WE were attracted to the "Singapore and Islands of Indonesia" cruise because of the ports of call and the concept of having "expert" lecturers on board to enhance the experience. All in all the concept worked. The lecturers were good, the ... Read more

We were so excited to try this small ship. But there were many things that were disappointing. The A/C was not adequate for the hot, humid climates. The water was brown the whole time we were on the ship, although I know there was a lot of ... Read more

Colombo to Singapore This was my first cruise, ever, and having read previous reviews I was somewhat apprehensive. The conclusion I came to is that reviews are often written by pedants - as on Trip Advisor with which I am more familiar. ... Read more

We travelled with this cruise line in 2010 in the Mediterranean. Overall we found the food uninspiring and the excursion staff to be very amateurish. However, that was tolerable. What was not tolerable was the stench of sewage in which ... Read more

This is the worst cruise of all our 50 plus cruises. The ship is old, has brown water flowing from the faucets, dirty dishes left out in social areas of the ship for days, air conditioning not working properly, etc. There are so many ... Read more

Terrific staff. Food good - as one other reviewer noted, because the ship was only half-full, dining alternated between the two restaurants, rather than having a choice each night. However, some of the buffet food at lunchtime was terrific ... Read more

This is the second time we have cruised with this company and I have nothing bad to say about either trips except on the subject of the poor wi-fi available on the ship. The current trip started in Venice, went to Croatia and ended up in ... Read more
