After a two-night hotel stay in London, this fabulous cruise sets sail beneath the gaze of London’s Tower Bridge, on a circumnavigation of the sceptered isle beginning with the cobblestone streets of St Peter Port in the Channel Islands.  See the world’s largest global garden, the Eden Project in Cornwall. Explore the Abbey Gardens of Tresco and step ashore on the Isle of Angelsey in Wales. Then cross the Irish Sea to Dublin, one of Europe’s finest cities.  Scotland is a place of many iconic sights, including Inveraray Castle, the Old Man of Storr, and the late Queen Mother’s favorite Highland residence, the Castle of Mey. Stirling Castle is a fortress with a colorful history, while the capital of Edinburgh has a wealth of other sights to explore.  Take a trip to Hadrian’s Wall or the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, followed by York, a cathedral city with an internationally renowned Viking past.

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

HOTEL STAYS IN ICONIC CITIES – The perfect way to begin or end your travels, each cruise vacation with Voyages to Antiquity includes pre- and/or post-cruise hotel stays, allowing you to really get to know these captivating cities. All guests can look forward to 4- or 5-star hotels, and guests booking a Balcony Class cabin (categories A to D) will enjoy exclusively 5-star accommodations.  Your stay in each city offers the perfect balance of included guided tours and leisure time. Hotel stays include breakfast, tax and service charges, and hospitality desk services. Please refer to individual cruise itineraries for details on the hotel accommodations included for each voyage.
SHORE EXCURSIONS
– We 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.
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.
