Aegean Odyssey

Road Scholar’s First-Ever Floating Campus

It’s Not A Cruise. It’s An Odyssey.

If you’ve always loved the idea of a learning adventure by ship but aren’t sure about commercial cruises, we have the perfect experiences for you. In the spring of 2020, we’re casting off on our grandest adventure yet aboard our first-ever floating campus, the Aegean Odyssey. The perfect level of comfort. All the right amenities. Delicious and healthy food. Extraordinary educational experiences. And, of course, ship mates who love to learn as much as you do. We welcome you aboard Road Scholar’s favorite ship!

Road Scholar Value

Our voyages are 20% to 30% below the cost of most commercial cruises, and to make your planning hassle-free we are offering free airfare from many cities if you enroll early. What’s more, if you’re traveling solo, you can have a cabin to yourself for a low additional cost.

More Time Learning

Since you have the convenience of embarking the ship directly from the airport, you only have to unpack once and get right to learning! What’s more, unlike most cruise ships that only have brief stays in port, we’ll overnight in many destinations, giving you plenty of opportunity for deeper exploration.
