Vantage Travel Adds Second 5-star Small Ship

BOSTON, May 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Vantage Deluxe World Travel is giving travelers something to look forward to with the new 5-star Ocean Odyssey, a 162-guest small ship scheduled to launch in March 2022. Following the announcement of sister ship Ocean Explorer in 2020, the Ocean Odyssey marks a major milestone in Vantage's 36-year history by bringing travelers to all 7 continents, as well as destinations new to the company, including the Coral Triangle, Borneo, Komodo, northern Australia, and beyond. The leader in solo travel, the Ocean Odyssey is also proud to offer 15 solo-designated cabins -- a cruise industry first.

"We couldn't be more excited to build on the success of the Ocean Explorer with the Ocean Odyssey," said Henry R. Lewis, Founder & Chairman. "Our travelers want an intimate, enriching experience where they can truly absorb history and culture with fewer guests and a better staff to guest ratio. The Ocean Odyssey will cater to those who appreciate relaxed refinement, unparalleled cultural enrichment, and unique adventures."
