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!
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…

  • Pay your respects during a visit to one of the D-Day invasion sites on the beaches of Normandy.
  • Explore Porto’s highlights by motorcoach with a local expert, followed by a tasting of port.
  • Visit the bustling Medina (Kasbah) while in Tangier, followed by tea.

General Notes

We’ll have up to 350 Road Scholar participants on the ship, divided into groups of 35 for shore excursions.
