Globalista is delighted to present a new partnership with acclaimed small-ship cruise operator Voyages to Antiquity for their upcoming season to Cuba and the Caribbean.

Though VTA are best known for their Mediterranean cruises to ancient civilizations, from November 2017 through March 2018 they are operating a full programme of journeys around Cuba and the Caribbean. Few small ships serve this region, so there is no better way to experience Cuba, Jamaica, Barbados, Antigua, St Lucia, the magnificent Mayan ruins of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula (pictured below), and so much more.


The Cruise Ship

Travelling on the Aegean Odyssey which only has capacity for 350 passengers, the ship is small enough to put in at more characterful ports inaccessible to the mega-ships, so there are no queues to embark or disembark, and the service is much more personal.

Yet on the other hand, the ship is large enough to offer a superb selection of onboard facilities, including two dining venues, several comfortable lounges and bars, a spa centre and well-stocked library. Cabins are spacious, modern and intelligently designed.


Solo travellers, so often relegated to second class status, are very well catered for aboard Aegean Odyssey, with more than 30 roomy dedicated solo cabins across a variety of categories at a minimal supplement.

Guest Lecturer

Joining the December and January cruises is historian and journalist Dr Carrie Gibson (pictured below), author of Empire’s Crossroads: A History of the Caribbean from Columbus to the Present Day.

What the Cost Includes

Voyages to Antiquity holiday prices are inclusive, covering international flights, transfers, full board accommodation, wine with dinner onboard, shore excursions in almost every port of call, the guest lecture programme and gratuities. Look out for discounts and offers, including second traveller half price and low or no single supplements.

exclusively for Globalista subscribers, you can take advantage of an extra $100 onboard credit to spend as you wish. Simply quote the promotional code GLOBAL / HOWTO to claim your credit when you book.
