Viking Cruises announced Thursday it would be launching a new 11-day ocean cruise itinerary, dubbed the Greek Odyssey, that will allow guests to explore the ancient empires of antiquity along the Aegean Sea.

Starting in January 2021, the new itinerary will sail roundtrip from Athens and feature three new ports of call for Viking, including Volos, ThessalonĂ­ki and Nafpilo in Greece, as well as a stop in Ephesus, marking the company's return to Turkey.

Passengers on the Greek Odyssey voyage will sail on the 930-passenger, all-veranda Viking Sea.

“Our guests are curious explorers who want opportunities for learning while they travel in comfort,” Viking chairman Torstein Hagen said in a statement. “Our destination-focused ocean itineraries are built on the same successful principles as our river itineraries – we offer our guests more time in port, enriching cultural experiences, the best-designed ships at sea with no children, no casinos and no nickel-and-diming.”

“With this new itinerary in Greece and Turkey offered during the quiet winter season, we look forward to helping our guests explore such a culturally rich region of the world in The Viking Way,” Hagen continued.

Highlights of the new cruise include a stop in Ephesus, where passengers can visit the remains of the Byzantine Basilica of St. John and even the reported home of the Virgin Mary. In Volos, travelers can explore the ancient religious center of Dion and the stunning scenery of Meteora.

Guests can also explore the ancient culture of ThessalonĂ­ki, the breathtaking mountains of Nafpilo and the majestic slopes of Mt. Athos.
