At a Glance

Storied battlegrounds and legendary mythology. Lively celebrations and colorful local character. Experience a memorable journey to the Greek Isles and the Peloponnese aboard Road Scholar’s favorite ship, the Aegean Odyssey, as you set out to discover the remarkable past and sacred tales that shaped today’s modern Greece. What’s more, you’ll visit the island of Crete for one of the most special days in Greek culture — Greek Easter — for an unforgettable local celebration. 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. In-depth learning, our best experts, authentic experiences and cultural celebrations — we’ve created the perfect voyage!
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 ...

  • Spend Greek Easter in the traditional village of Arolithos, where you’ll learn about local customs that date back generations, followed by a celebration in a local taverna with music, food and dancing!
  • Add a second country to your adventure with a day in Marmaris, a city along the Turkish Riviera.
  • With an expert, climb the Acropolis, one of the world’s most awe-inspiring ancient sites and the symbol of Athens.
  • Sail exclusively with ship mates who are all Road Scholar participants, 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 and H. Give us a call to combine this learning adventure with select dates of "Odyssey at Sea: The Greek Isles & Ephesus" (#23517) for even more learning adventures on board the Aegean Odyssey.
