    Voyages to Antiquity.

    I have posted a brief review on the review pages . Some aspects of the inaugural voyage were slightly strange, but it was a very enjoyable, if exhausting, trip. We were on the second 2 week segment from Athens to Rome concentrating mainly on Sicily. If anyone is considering a cruise with this new venture I would be happy to try and answer any questions.

    Voyage to Antiquity

    We are booked on the Sailing to Byzantium 29th of June to the 15th of July. Looking forward to this offering as we enjoyed the Orient line and Voyage of Discovery. This style of cruise appealed to us. We will post a review when we come home. Hopefully it measures up to the hype.

      Having just read marlowman's comments on the review pages, we agree that it was not a happy ship. This was partly to do with the fact that as soon as you came on board (if not sooner, ie. when you saw the black smoke coming out the funnel) you realised that it was NEVER going to measure up to the hype.

        I have just returned from a 6 week trip on my own boat, no internet, but have read the reviews here and via links with interest. Are there any updates or links about Voyages to Antiquity? I agree there were a lot of problems but there were a lot of very good things as well, and I hope the venture succeeds because we want to go again. The class system did have one benefit, our Group D was a lovely mix of like minded people, most of whom could see the funny side of some of the unfortunate arrangements like the Great Picnic when we all had to crawl into scrubby woods to get some shade. Happy days.

          Thanks for the link, made very interesting reading! I doubted that this ship would be for us, now convinced it definitely isn't, shame as the itineraries looked good!

            Thanks Lizzie, I'm glad it was useful. Of course, if the shipboard experience had been half as good as the itinerary then I wouldn't be writing this...
