At a Glance

Five captivating countries in 16 days, a gem of discovery at every turn. Step aboard Road Scholar’s favorite ship — the Aegean Odyssey — for our monumental journey to France, Spain, Portugal, Morocco and England. Delve into the remarkable history and modern local life of each as you journey from Barcelona to Tangier, Porto to Normandy, ending with a day in Tilbury. 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. If you’ve wanted to see the world in a bold, new way, you’ll find it on our first-ever floating campus!
