At a Glance

It’s “anchors aweigh” on this epic educational adventure around the world aboard our first-ever floating campus, the Aegean Odyssey. Beginning in Cairo, you’ll join local experts in 16 countries on a monumental 104-day voyage that takes you from the Middle East to India, Southeast Asia to East Africa, Egypt to Greece. During your days at sea, enjoy expert-led lectures, the ship’s well-stocked library, and dining experiences paired with the regions we’ll be exploring. During your days on land, discover both iconic landmarks and off-the-beaten-path gems as you immerse yourself in the local culture and history of each enthralling new destination. Pack a small overnight bag in preparation for seven special field trips on land, complete with hotel stays, including a three-day wildlife safari in Kenya and a two-day, expert-led exploration of Myanmar’s ancient kingdom of Bagan. Through it all, you’ll be in the company of Road Scholars as dedicated to learning and adventure as you are. This is no cruise — it’s the odyssey of a lifetime!
