Voyages to Antiquity unveils Asia itineraries

Voyages to Antiquity revealed itineraries for the 350-passenger Aegean Odyssey's Asia cruises in 2012-13.

Cruises will explore history, culture and art in India and Southeast Asia.

Guest lecturers and speakers, including those from the Archaeological Institute of America, will complement the program’s in-depth shore experiences, as will regional food and wine, the line said.

A 16-day cruise roundtrip from Singapore, with departures Dec. 5, 2012 and Feb. 15, 2013, starts with a two-night pre-cruise hotel stay in Singapore.

Port calls include Kuala Lumpur, Pengang and Malacca, Malaysia; Phuket, Thailand; and Yangon, Burma.

Cruise fares in the Far East program start from $3,995, including shore excursions; gratuities; and wine, beer and soft drinks at dinner.

An early-booking discount of up to $800 is offered on bookings made by Nov. 30, 2011. Air add-ons are from $595, including transfers and porterage.

Since its May 2010 launch, Voyages to Antiquity itineraries have focused mainly on Mediterranean sailings. The Aegean Odyssey is the only ship it operates.
