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 large commercial cruises, we have the perfect experience for you. In the spring of 2022, we're casting off on our most exciting adventure yet aboard our first-ever floating campus: the Aegean Odyssey. Join us on board Road Scholar's favorite ship, and you'll find the perfect level of comfort and safety, all the right amenities, delicious and healthy plated meals, extraordinary educational experiences and, of course, ship mates who love to learn as much as you do. Welcome aboard.

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

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.
