At a Glance

Cast off on the inaugural sailing of our first-ever floating campus! Step aboard Road Scholar’s favorite ship — the Aegean Odyssey — for a monumental journey to the Greek Isles and beyond. You’ll explore several of Greece’s most treasured islands, from the glamorous charms of Mykonos to the romantic terraces of Santorini, as well as explore the antiquity-rich sites that shaped Greece as a nation, such as legendary Ephesus and the iconic Acropolis. 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 — it’s an educational odyssey!
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 ...

  • Experience authentic local life and time-honored traditions on one of Greece’s most popular islands, Mykonos.
  • With an expert, climb the Acropolis with an expert, one of the world’s most awe-inspiring ancient sites and the symbol of Athens.
  • Discover the storied past behind the ruins of Ephesus, the jewel of the Greek-Roman cities, during your time in Turkey.
  • 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 Greek Isles & the Peloponnese" (#23518) for even more learning adventures on board the Aegean Odyssey.
