Voyages to Antiquity Changes Athens Hotel but Ship Departure Remains Unchanged


Aegean Odyssey // (c) 2011 Voyages to Antiquity

Today, Voyages to Antiquity advised certain Concierge Class guests sailing onboard Voyages to Antiquity's July 3 departure of Aegean Odyssey from Piraeus (Athens) that it's changing their reservation for a pre-cruise hotel in downtown Athens.
Concierge Class guests who were booked by the line at the Grand Bretagne hotel, located in the Syntagma Square area, are being shifted to The Westin Astir Palace, which is located on a private peninsula overlooking the Saronic Gulf. Syntagma Square has been the site of recent political rallies, and the line says it's possible the demonstrations may continue over the weekend.
Voyages to Antiquity officials stress that this is the only change impacting guests on that July 3 departure. Arrangements for other guests staying pre-cruise in Athens at other properties remain as is. The line's Athens sightseeing program will also continue.
