MV Aegean Odyssey - NEW

Built: 1972
Crew: 180
Passengers: 350
Rating: Four Stars
Cruises Available: 2

The classically elegant Aegean Odyssey is specially adapted for island and coastal cruising, so you can visit smaller, less crowded harbours, sail closer to the spectacular coastlines of Greece, Italy and Spain, navigate the idyllic islands of Sicily and Malta, and even cruise upriver into the heart of Seville.

Experience the finest traditions of cruising on board Aegean Odyssey, combining the best of classical grace with all the modern conveniences of a first-class ship. She is a superb vessel carrying just 378 guests, creating a unique atmosphere that is both relaxed and convivial – you can mingle with other guests, or find quiet areas for relaxation.During the day, you may simply wish to enjoy the sun on the spacious teak decks, cool off in the outdoor pool refreshed with seawater every day, or rejuvenate yourself with a yoga session at the Athena Health Spa and Gym. There is an exclusive programme of talks held in the Ambassador Lounge, designed to entertain and bring to life the history of the area’s remarkable civilisations, and other fascinating topics. Perhaps borrow an interesting book from the beautifully appointed, well-stocked library, regularly updated by Oxford-based booksellers, Blackwells. Watch the sunset with a cocktail in the Lido Bar, or enjoy an aperitif in the Charleston Lounge while being entertained by the resident trio.
