Due to the current situation in Egypt and Tunisia, Voyages to Antiquity has announced that they will be re-arranging their two early spring cruises which call at ports in both countries.

A new cruise itinerary replaces ‘Carthage must be destroyed’ and ‘Everything in Alexandria was superlative ’.


It will depart from Athens (Piraeus) on Monday, 4th April and end in Rome (Civitavecchia) on Monday 18 April 2011.

The new itinerary features four ports of call in Libya as well as Syracuse and Taormina in Sicily, a day and a half in Crete, and an overnight stay in Sorrento, Italy. The cruise will last 14 nights and has optional two-night pre- and post-cruise hotel stays available in Athens and Rome.

Commenting on the change of plans, David Yellow, managing director of Voyages to Antiquity said, “Having carefully considered the situation in both countries, we feel it is important that guests are not left wondering about their cruises until the last minute. With this in mind we have developed this new schedule which still maintains the planned visit to Libya whilst supplementing other equally enjoyable stops as well as new ports in Crete. We feel the revised itinerary provides an extremely attractive alternative to the two original cruises and hope that guests decide to continue with their plans. These itineraries have had to be revised due to circumstances which are beyond our control. All passengers have now been contacted and from initial feedback over the last 24 hours the majority of guests have already re-booked.”
