Voyages to Antiquity Overview
The now-out-of-business U.K.-based Voyages to Antiquity offered culturally intensive cruises to North Americans, Brits and Australasians from 2010 to early 2019. Everything onboard was geared toward improving the mind, from the high-brow daily lectures to the included shore excursions.
Who goes on the Voyages to Antiquity cruise ship?
Voyages to Antiquity attracted a mature crowd from North America, the U.K. and Australia, mainly couples and a few singles, as the ship had some decent single cabins. The one unifying factor was a keen interest in culture and learning.
Do I have to dress up on Voyages to Antiquity cruises?
No, but the dress code was smart-casual throughout. Smart separates were fine by night and during the day; good walking shoes and a sun hat were more important than style.
What are the most popular activities on Voyages to Antiquity?
With Voyages to Antiquity, people planned their day around going on the included tours and attending the daily talks, rather than sunbathing on deck and sitting at the bar. Evening talks focused on the region in which the ship was sailing, or places visited during the day, or locations to be visited later in the cruise. Otherwise, there was a small gym and spa, a pool on deck and a decent array of loungers and deck chairs.
Is everything on Voyages to Antiquity free?
No, but all excursions were included in the cruise fare and wine was poured freely with lunch and dinner. Extras included bar drinks, laundry, gratuities and spa treatments.
