About Us

Voyages to Antiquity (VTA) was a small-ship cruise line that operated the 350-passenger Aegean Odyssey between 2009 and 2019. In 2020 Aegean Odyssey begins service for Road Scholar in Boston.

During our 10 year history we won numerous major industry awards including ‘Best Small Ship Cruise Line’ at the British Travel Awards and Best Specialist Cruise Line at the prestigious WAVE Awards. We were celebrated as one of the leading destination led, cultural cruise lines in the world and are proud of our achievements for a small and single ship company.

Since announcing the charter VTA has received overwhelming feedback from past guests to find suitable cruise partners and ships to enable cruising to continue, with the added hope that destinations that were not previously possible could be added too.

We are delighted to announce that details of a series of cruises with a carefully selected partner can now be announced and are on sale to book for 2020 and 2021 sailings.

Voyages to Antiquity remains a corporated company in the United Kingdom (Voyages to Antiquity (UK) Limited but we no longer act as a cruise principle or agent. Cruises presented on this site are operated by our partners and not by Voyages to Antiquity. We have been actively involved in selected sailings that we feel will be popular with our past guests, sourcing guest lecturers and tour guides and selecting suitable shore excursions but we are not in any way connected with the operation of the cruises highlighted.

As we no longer have a sales office in the UK your dealings will be directly with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines who will be happy to answer your questions relating to the VTA Group voyages on offer.

We are confident you will enjoy the sailings on offer and that they provide an excellent opportunity for past VTA guests to meet once again at sea (or even on the river) and continue to enjoy the comforts and friendships that were born on Aegean Odyssey. 

Fred. Olsen was an obvious partner for VTA, having won the prestigious Cruise Critic ‘Best for Itineraries’ award in December 2019 – for a record fifth year in a row. It has also been crowned eight-times winner of ‘Best Cruise Line Operator for Groups’ in the ‘2019 Group Travel Awards’, and ‘Best Cruise Line for Groups’, for a record eighth time, in the ‘2019 Group Leisure & Travel Awards’, as well as ‘Best Ocean Cruise Line’ in the ‘Silver Travel Awards’, for a subsequent fourth year.
