At a Glance

Mythological Greece. Regal Croatia. Bewitching Italy. The pearls of this idyllic region are legendary, and you can experience them all aboard our first-ever floating campus! Set sail on a monumental journey around Greece and along the northern Adriatic coastline. Travel back in time as you explore ancient Greek ruins and proud Croatian architecture. Experience authentic local life as you sail along the Albanian Riviera and among charming Venetian islands. What's more, unlike most cruise ships that are briefly in port, you'll have overnight stays in many locations, giving you plenty of opportunity for deeper exploration. This is no cruise, after all — it’s an educational odyssey aboard our favorite ship!
Activity Level
Choose Your Pace
This program offers two activity levels to choose from on every departure date: one that has less walking and fewer stairs and another at a more active pace.

Best of all, you'll ...

  • Climb the Acropolis with an expert for awe-inspiring city views before exploring the New Acropolis Museum in history-rich Athens.
  • Explore the treasures of the Old City of Dubrovnik, one of the most beautiful ports in all of Europe.
  • Set off to discover the gems of Venice with an expert, including St. Mark’s Square and Doge’s Palace.
  • Sail exclusively with ship mates who are all Road Scholar participants, like-minded travelers who are as dedicated to learning as you are.

General Notes

We’ll have up to 350 Road Scholar participants on the ship, divided into groups of 35 for shore excursions. Please note roommate matching is available in categories F, H and L. Give us a call to combine this learning adventure with select dates of "Odyssey at Sea: The Best of the Aegean Sea" (#23511) for even more learning adventures onboard the Aegean Odyssey.
