At a Glance

Cast off on a monumental voyage to some of the world’s most ancient wonders aboard Road Scholar’s premier floating campus! Beginning and ending in Greece, sail back in time as you unearth layers of history and culture alongside experts. You’ll climb the awe-inspiring Acropolis, delve into the complex past beneath Jerusalem’s magnetism, stand in wonder before the enigmatic pyramids, explore the magnificent ruins of Ephesus and so much 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. Make history with us and come aboard for our inaugural season!
Activity Level
Choose Your Pace
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 ...

  • Discover the ruins of Ephesus, the jewel of Greek-Roman cities.
  • Marvel at some of Egypt’s most mysterious and impressive structures, including pyramids at Giza and the Great Sphinx.
  • Learn about the staggering clash of history and culture behind Jerusalem’s sacred structures.
  • 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, H and L. 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 on board the Aegean Odyssey.
