First time UK call for Voyages to Antiquity

Voyages to Antiquity (www.voyagestoantiquity.com) today welcome a new chapter in its seven year history with the arrival of the 350 passenger Aegean Odyssey in the UK for the first time. The milestone comes ahead of the cruise line’s first dedicated European programme that features no fly cruising from the UK.

The Aegean Odyssey arrived in Falmouth at 7am this morning as part of its 24-day Grand European Voyage. The ship will then head to the Mediterranean before returning to the UK next year for the new 2017 programme featuring 17 itineraries, four ex-UK sailings and maiden visits to the Orkney and Shetland Islands, Iceland and Olbia in Sardinia.

Jos Dewing, Managing Director, Voyages to Antiquity commented:

“Today’s UK visit is the perfect way to mark the launch of our new dedicated European and UK 2017 programme. Not only are we introducing many new ports of call but we also have our first ever no-fly cruises from the UK.”
