Classic International Cruises has just announced a new 36-night voyage for Athena from Italy to Australia in November 2012.
The 640-passenger, classic-styled, 16,144-ton ship will stop at numerous exotic ports on it journey, including Livorno in Italy (for trips to Pisa and Florence) and Port Said in Egypt (for a chance to see the Pyramids).
Classic International Cruises managing director, Grant Hunter, said that for Australians planning holidays in Europe in 2012 the voyage should have great appeal, with glamorous ports and 25 days relaxing at sea.
“A voyage aboard Athena is cruising as it was meant to be, with a sense of the ocean and all its mystery, adventure and nautical traditions,” he said.
Athena features traditional wooden deck chairs, pool, fitness centre, five bars and lounges, casino, library, cinema and two restaurants. But possible best of all, each of its 276 spacious cabins contains a bath – luxury.
