The Ship: Aegean Odyssey

There is a particular pleasure that comes with cruising aboard a smaller ship. Hosting an average of just 350 passengers, Aegean Odyssey is no ‘floating city’. She is small enough to sail rivers and put into the more characterful ports inaccessible to the ‘mega-ships’, the service is more personal and you get plenty of time to interact with the onboard experts.

Yet on the other hand, she is large enough to offer a superb selection of amenities, including two dining venues, several comfortable lounges and bars, a relaxing spa centre and well-stocked library. Cabins are spacious, modern and intelligently designed, and 39 cabins across a range of categories (including balcony) are set aside for solo travellers at low supplement.

LIFE ON BOARD

After all is said and done, what passengers love most about Aegean Odyssey is the warm and intimate atmosphere. Ships, like people, have personalities. Some are proper and formal. Others offer the anonymity of a large hotel. On Aegean Odyssey you are greeted as a returning family member, even if it’s your first time on board, and unlike a mega liner, it’s easy to meet fellow passengers whose passions and interests are similar to your own.

ATTEND TO THE MIND…

Each of our cruises features a lecture programme led by celebrated guest speakers, whose informative talks are sure to enlighten and entertain as they bring to life the wonderful sites you will visit.

The onboard library is beautifully appointed and houses a well-stocked collection handpicked by the experts at the Oxford-based bookseller, Blackwell’s. Newspapers are received daily via satellite and current editions are available in the library.

…AS WELL AS THE BODY

Relax on the sweeping sun deck and cool off in the outdoor pool. Or pamper yourself at the Athena Health Spa, where you will find wonderful therapies and treatments to revive you, and our hairdressers and beauty centre is also on hand.

There’s a full fitness studio and early morning yoga sessions to set you up for the day.

ANYONE FOR TEA?

There is something magical about the tradition of taking tea at sea. You’ll find a selection of freshly-prepared sandwiches, cakes and scones – with a cup of Darjeeling and panoramic views to enjoy, it’s a winning combination. We also serve light snacks at 10.30pm for those passengers enjoying a late night discussion about the day’s sightseeing.

EVENINGS TO SAVOUR

Before dinner, enjoy a drink in the Charleston Lounge or watch the sun go down from The Terrace. After dinner, perhaps take in a lecture about the places you’ll visit the next day, or enjoy the string trio, pianist and vocalist performance. In some ports we organise local entertainment which is always well-received.

STAY CONNECTED

For keeping in touch with friends and family, our internet room is well-located on Belvedere Deck next to Reception. Wifi is also available in designated areas.

AT YOUR SERVICE

Ask any world traveller where they receive the best services and they will undoubtedly answer the Far East. Of all the nationalities in this part of the world, it is the Filipinos who carry the highest reputation for attention to detail.

Fluent in English and always ready with a smile, our Filipino crew will win your heart.
