Short Description

This itinerary has been planned to explore the magnificent scenery and fascinating history that this remarkable sea has to offer: from the elegance of the Alhambra and the splendors of Imperial Rome to the picturesque Cote d’Azur and the treasures of Renaissance Florence. Your journey begins with a two-night hotel stay in the charming capital of Portugal, Lisbon. Gothic cathedrals, majestic monasteries and quaint museums are all part of Lisbon’s colorful cityscape. 

Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.

We just finished a fabulous experience cruising Turkey and Greece ports. Our first experience with Voyages to Antiquity. Land tours were great; excellent hotels on both ends in Istanbul and Athens. Small ship and educational features were the opposite of typical big ship cruises. Onboard service was first class. We were so pleased we booked one for next year too!
