At a Glance

In America, we know it as the French Riviera. To you, sailing an epic adventure aboard the Aegean Odyssey, it is as a French author dubbed it in 1888 — the Côte d’Azur. An educational journey along this glamorous stretch of Mediterranean coast also spotlights idyllic Genoa in Italy and the Catalonian capital of Barcelona. In between, experience St. Tropez, Marseilles and other gems along the French coastline. Unlike most cruise ships that are briefly in port, you’ll have overnight stays in many locations, allowing deeper exploration. Don’t miss your chance to experience our first-ever floating campus!
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 ...

  • Enjoy two overnight stays exploring the gems of Barcelona, one of Europe’s cultural hubs.
  • 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.
