We had the unbelievable experience of sailing the Aegean on a "Travels of Paul” trip. What an incredible adventure on the legendary SEA CLOUD. Amazing memories with Amazing people. Thank you, Karl and Julie!

After several trips with First Century Voyages, we plan to travel again and again in the years to come. Planning a trip can be daunting, but First Century Voyages takes care of everything. The accommodations, the places we eat, and the places we visit are always first class and every detail is perfect. We just have to show up and enjoy our time. Thank you, FCV.

Although we are not a typical “cruise couple," we had a magnificent time with First Century Voyages in the Greek Isles aboard SEA CLOUD. The ship, the crew, the itinerary, the food, the other guests and the location all were incredible. It was truly a trip of a lifetime.

We spent our thirtieth anniversary on a First Century Voyages trip to the Aegean. It was SO fun and educational that we’ve done eight more and have signed up for another this summer!
