Who says it’s all work no play? Travel Agents visit Aegean Odyssey

Earlier in the year, we held a competition for travel agents to win one of 30 places on Aegean Odyssey’s ‘Provence to Andalusia’ voyage. It was a great opportunity for our travel partners to experience our ship, and familiarise themselves with our product, meaning they are better equipped to help you choose the perfect cruise.

During their 5-day cruise, they visited 9 ports including Nice, Cannes, Marseilles, Sete, Barcelona, Valencia, Malaga, Cadiz and Seville, but rather than tell you about each, we are going to show you. Thankfully, the weather in each port was absolutely superb and it allowed for some wonderful photography opportunities. We think you’ll agree that a most enjoyable and memorable time was had by all.

Our morning tours allow our guests to have optimal free time right in the heart of the city, so you can discover more of that wonderful Spanish culture – a visit to The Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria on La Rambla is an absolute must.

Many of our voyages that start or end in Seville also offer overnight hotel accommodation, giving you ample time to explore this beautiful city. A day trip to CORDOBA and a visit to one of the wonders of the medieval world: the Great Mosque, are both highlights.
