Unexpected Farewell Cruise

|

The saying is: never go back! In 2012 we had an unforgettable cruise on Aegean Odyssey and we have always wanted to return. So on 26 April 2019 we flew to Athens to join her for a Classical Greece and Islands of ...

Perfect small ship size, but ship needs renovation and shore excursions rushed

We travelled with Road Scholar, about 20 of us. We had our own guides separate from the what was provided to the other passengers on the ship. Pros - Nice size ship, under 300. Easy on/off. Restaurants not ...

Why I would not travel with VTA again

Having read numerous reviews regarding Voyages to Antiquity (VTA) and their ship, Aegean Odyssey, I was puzzled by the diverse reviews. Some appeared to love it, whilst others hated it. My conclusion, after a cruise ...

No more of these cruises for us......

My wife and I had never previously been keen to join a cruise. However, the itinerary of this one, its emphasis on historical exploration and the fact that the boat seemed relatively small and therefore perhaps more ...

Some good and some bad

It was recommended for the quality of lectures and excursions, which I found excellent. Before the trip I was sent the wrong documents (for another passenger!) and had to wait for my e-ticket to arrive by post ...

Disappointed

We chose the Grand Voyage to the Rivieras (London to Rome) on Aegean Odyssey in June-July 2016 because it was a small ship which promised an educational program and visits to antiquities. Selecting a four week ...

Good, but...

Well, as ever, it was quite good. Emphasis on "quite". The good things. Despite my criticisms below, Voyages to Antiquity are good value for money. I cannot emphasise that enough. But... The staff. They ...

A great concept, but let down by the medium. (the ship)

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 ...

Could have been better

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 ...

Could do better

A thoroughly enjoyable cruise with fascinating sites, good guides and fine hotels in Athens and Istanbul at beginning and end of cruise. There were a number of disappointing elements mostly related to the ship. The ...

Tired ship. Very bland food

In common with some others we found the food, though reasonable in quality, to be extremely bland and uninteresting. One exception was a lunchtime special dish of casseroled octopus Croatian style. The largely ...

Not Our Finest Hours

It was advertised as a Grand Voyage but proved to be anything but "Grand". It was made up of two cruises back to back. Bangkok to Hong Kong and Hong Kong to Bali. It was a "maiden" voyage to this area and hadn't ...

Voyage to mediocrity

We have cruised 13 times on both mainstream and upscale ships. Good: Lectures (good to very good); the value of the extra two-day program in Istanbul (accommodation in Ritz Carlton); no casino; efficient ...

Excellent staff but cabins need some serious soundproofing.

I chose this cruise for the itinerary and the quality excursions advertised. It is the smallest ship I have sailed on. I would not recommend the two night pre cruise stay in Seville. The excursions were good, ...
