At a Glance

Cast off on an epic adventure aboard our first-ever floating campus! Begin your monumental journey to the green gems of the British Isles in Dublin, where locals’ warmth is omnipresent. On board Road Scholar’s favorite ship — the Aegean Odyssey — sail to Kirkwall to experience its ancient Scottish treasures, and make your way along the craggy coastline to discover the heritage of the rolling hills of Scotland and the British Isles. Unlike most cruise ships that are briefly in port, you’ll have overnight stays in many locations, providing deeper exploration. Make history with us — and make friendships on board ship and on land!
Activity Level
On Your Feet
This program offers two activity levels to choose from: one that has less walking and fewer stairs and another at a more active pace.

Best of all, you'll ...

  • Marvel at Skara Brae, the remains of a 5000-year-old Neolithic settlement on Orkney's Mainland.
  • Experience authentic local life and time-honored treasures during expert-led field trips ashore, with varied Activity Levels so you can learn at your own pace.
  • 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.
