This voyage takes you to the mysterious, beautiful, and spiritual nation of Burma, sailing from Singapore after a two-night hotel stay.  You will also explore the fascinating port of Malacca in south-west Malaysia, once the centre of the spice trade, followed by the rich colonial history of Penang and the delightful resort of Phuket in Thailand, where there will be the chance to visit the stunning Phi Phi Islands or the bay of Phang Nga.  Your arrival in Myanmar (Burma) is spectacular as we sail up the Yangon River to berth in the port of Yangon (Rangoon), the former capital of the nation. Then sail to Port Blair in the Andaman Islands and onwards to the beautiful island of Sri Lanka, a place of tropical landscapes and mysterious Buddhist relics.

WHAT’S INCLUDED WITH VOYAGES TO ANTIQUITY – OUR CRUISES OFFER OUTSTANDING VALUE FOR MONEY.  WITH SO MUCH INCLUDED, THERE’S VERY LITTLE EXTRA TO PAY FOR ONCE YOU ARE ON BOARD:

SHORE EXCURSIONSWe include escorted sightseeing in virtually every port of call – where we don’t, it’s because we feel that your time ashore is best spent exploring on your own. You’ll be supplied with your individual QuietVox headset, a clever device through which you can hear the tour leader clearly even at the busiest sites, and at a distance. To keep you refreshed, we equip you with bottled water as you disembark for each day.

MANY OVERNIGHTS IN PORT – To ensure that our guests have ample time to experience the wonderful destinations we visit each cruise itinerary is designed with frequent evenings and extended stays in key ports of call.

ONBOARD LECTURE PROGRAMME – Selected for their expertise, our guest speakers will enlighten and entertain you throughout the cruise. Usually several experts are on board, each keen to share their knowledge with you. They also accompany you on shore excursions and some may make themselves available on board for a more informal discussion.

FULL BOARD AND WINE WITH DINNER – All meals are included on board, as well as afternoon tea and late-night snacks. We use fresh ingredients to create a variety of inspired menus.  Water is served with all meals, and wine – beer or soft drinks if preferred – are included with dinner.

GRATUITIES ON BOARD – All tips for cabin stewards and restaurant staff on board Aegean Odyssey are included in your rate. Of course, you are welcome to show your appreciation to individuals offering exceptional service.
