Voyages to Antiquity

Choosing a holiday is a big decision. We understand that before booking your cruise aboard Agean Odyssey you will want to know the philosophy behind Voyages to Antiquity.

A Voyages to Antiquity cruise aims to open a window into the origins and genius of western civilisation. These journeys, however, are not only about history. As well as visiting breathtaking archaelogical treasures you will see some of the most beautiful scenery in the world and experience the food and wine of the Mediterranean.

Voyages to Antiquity have created a cruise experience that is not only for the amateur or professional historian but also for people who simply want to understand the history, art, myths and architecture of the ancient world.

The Benefits of Small Ship Cruising

Bora Bora Beach

In contrast to the massive vessels cruising to and from major ports of the world, Voyages to Antiquity have a mid-size ship adapted for island and coastal cruising. This means that the Agean Odyssey can visit smaller, less crowded harbours and sail closer to the coast enabling you to really appreciate the magical views.

Embark The Gauguin in Tahiti, an island on the wish list of every cruise enthusiast who longs for the ultimate escape. Then, sail on to Raiatea, the cultural, religious, royal and political heart of Polynesia and home to the Society Islands' most significant archaeological sites.

Next, spend a day or so as a guest on Motu Mahana, m/s Paul Gauguin's very own South Seas paradise. On a white-sand beach beneath palm fronds ruffled by gentle breezes, you can snorkel, kayak, play volleyball, or simply relax, and enjoy a traditional feast with Polynesian entertainment.

Then, it's on to spectacular Bora Bora and Moorea. See why author James A Michener called Bora Bora "the most beautiful island in the world" and perhaps bask on a private beach on a motu (islet) off the coast. Admire the jagged volcanic peaks, multi-hued lagoon, and palm fringed beaches of Moorea, said to be the inspiration for Bali Hai.

The beauty , unparalleled. The lifestyle, unhurried. The experience, unforgettable. No wonder these islands are the centrepiece of every m/s Paul Gauguin cruise.
