At a Glance

Cast off on an epic adventure aboard our first-ever floating campus! Step aboard Road Scholar’s favorite ship for a monumental journey from Turkey to Greece — or the reverse! Sail the coast of Greece’s mainland, discovering enchanting villages, hidden ports and the ancient capital of Athens. In Istanbul — final stop on the legendary Silk Road — see hundreds of minarets dotting the skyline. 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. We’ve taken care of every detail — and can’t wait for you to be a part of our odyssey!
Activity Level
Choose Your Pace
TThis 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 ...

  • Spend three days exploring the remarkable Byzantine ruins and diverse culture of Istanbul.
  • Learn the history behind the impressive Royal Tombs of Vergina in Thessaloniki.
  • Explore the awe-inspiring ancient Acropolis with a local expert while in Athens.
  • 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.
