New countries in expanded 2019 program for Voyages to Antiquity
VOYAGES to Antiquity will visit six new countries next year in an expanded European program for the small-ship cruise operator.
New itinerary options include first-time visits to Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Poland and Germany, as well as new ports of call in Stockholm, Helsinki and Tromso.
Sailing aboard the 350-guest Aegean Odyssey, the cultural cruise line’s 2019 program offers a maiden voyage around the Baltics with three days in St Petersburg, as well as an inaugural itinerary highlighting Norway’s Arctic North Cape where guests will witness the legendary ‘Land of the Midnight Sun.’
“We are thrilled to extend VTA’s commitment to cultural immersion and enrichment to an even more varied array of destinations in 2019,” said the line’s managing director Jos Dewing. “2019 will be VTA’s most expansive program to date.”
The 2019 season will also feature a return to the Black Sea, with a 14-day Black Sea and Greek Islands cruise on which guests will enjoy wine-tasting in Romania and experience the Roman Baths of Varna in Bulgaria.
The line’s popular Norwegian Fjords and Iceland itineraries, as well as its classic Mediterranean and Aegean circuits, will also return.
Voyages to Antiquity is also positioning itself as an ideal line for single travellers, having increased the number of dedicated single cabins to 39.
