VOYAGES TO ANTIQUITY and WINDSTAR are small boutique cruise lines

If you like small ships, and personal attention, it is likely you have found these small cruise lines. If you are missing the small ships your cruise operator has sold, then you might find a replacement holiday cruise here.

OCEANIA CRUISES FLEET

If you like small ships, and personal attention, it is likely you have found these small cruise lines. If you are missing the small ships your cruise operator has sold, then you might find a replacement here.

With an average of just 350 passengers, Aegean Odyssey is charmingly personal. It rejoices in not being a ‘floating city’. She is small enough to sail rivers and put into the more characterful ports inaccessible to big and ‘mega-ships’. She loves the Eastern Med in summer, does find journeys round the UK and goes off to South Africa and Asia in the winter.

 

She may be small, but she is large enough to offer a superb selection of amenities, including two dining venues, several comfortable lounges and bars, a relaxing spa centre and well-stocked library. Cabins are spacious, modern and intelligently designed, and 39 cabins across a range of categories (including balcony) are set aside for solo travellers at low supplement.

Aegean Odyssey – small ship, big attention

Voyages to Antiquity is a UK company based in Oxford and there are few UK cruise companies!
