Voyages to Antiquity 2011 Cruise Programme Now on Sale

From: Voyages to Antiquity
Published: Mon Sep 06 2010

Voyages to Antiquity, the cruise line that combines the very best in cultural travel with a sense of fun and style, today announced the launch of its 2011 UK brochure. The 2011 programme offers a host of new features including pre-and/or post-cruise hotel packages, a variety of shorter cruise lengths, new destinations and great value pricing.

New for the 2011:
As well as our two-week voyages, we now feature shorter cruises such as a seven-night sailing around the Greek Islands exploring Greek history from the emergence of the Minoans to the rise of Byzantium. These shorter duration cruises are designed to appeal to a wider audience of travellers.

The majority of our itineraries in 2011 include pre-and/or post-cruise stays in top-class hotels in Rome, Athens, Istanbul, and Cairo included in the fare. These provide guests with a chance to relax before their voyage or the opportunity to end their holiday exploring one of these remarkable cities. Guests have the flexibility to opt out of the hotel stays and receive a credit against their cruise fare.

New destinations include a circumnavigation of the Black Sea visiting ports in Georgia, Russia, Ukraine, and Bulgaria in July 2011. New itineraries will also include destinations in Corsica and Sardinia as well as a return to Libya as part of two North Africa itineraries. Another exciting new itinerary from Rome to Limassol explores the legacy of the Crusades.

In 2011, Voyages to Antiquity continues its commitment to offering passengers outstanding value including:

Scheduled economy class flights, usually on British Airways.
Shore excursions as detailed in each itinerary
Selected wine with dinner.
On-board gratuities for cabin and restaurant staff.

Additionally there are bonus offers for those who book early:

Commenting on the launch of the 2011 brochure, David Yellow, Managing Director of Voyages to Antiquity said, "Our new brochure not only offers new itineraries, but we have now packaged the product to be more flexible and appealing to a wider range of cruisers who may not have as much holiday time or may be looking for second holiday experience but are still looking for a trip which is culturally-stimulating."

Extraordinary value is a hallmark with cruise fares starting from 1495 per person, including shore excursions, gratuities to shipboard staff, wine, beer, and soft drinks at dinner. Guest lecturers and celebrated speakers will continue to bring to life the art, history and culture of the Mediterranean.
