Family cruises on Voyages to Antiquity 2015

Voyages to Antiquity is a special cruise company devoted to exploring ancient cultures via a select group of ports of call. One-week to three-week itineraries follow a theme; our family sailed from Venice to Istanbul on a fascinating jaunt “In the Footsteps of the Venetian Empire.” While we were among the youngest passengers aboard, it’s a wonderful choice for a multigenerational cruise with older teens and adult kids because the expert lectures at sea, complimentary shore excursions and unusual ports allow each cruiser to pursue his own passion.

What’s new: After years of sailing the ancient civilizations of the Mediterranean during the spring through fall seasons, the company is moving their one ship, the comfortable 350-passenger MV Aegean Odyssey, to new ports of call in winter. For 2015, it will sail to14 new destinations and commence four new itineraries – south to the Western Sahara, Namibia and South Africa; and east to the Straits of Malacca, Sri Lanka and Myanmar. We trust their expert guides will bring to life the art, history and culture of the new regions visited.

For kids: While there are no particular facilities for young children, the ship is cozy, safe and intimate. Anyone with an interest in history and geography will appreciate the informal talks, culture evenings, and stocked library featuring books about the destination.

Around the ship: Cabins range from suites to singles. In addition to using the small gym, pool, bar, and a few restaurants whose excellent cuisine varies each day to match the port of call, the best thing to do is explore the unusual ports easily accessed by this small cruise ship.
