Combining the comfort of boutique-style cruising with the very best of cultural travel, Voyages to Antiquity offers an opportunity to explore the origins and genius of western civilization, as well as the fascinating culture of the Orient.
The meticulously planned itineraries, celebrated guest speakers, and included shore excursions will bring to life the fascinating history and awe-inspiring sites of the ancient world.
Wonderful Food, Good Wine, and Friendly Service
As well as being one of the world’s most historically interesting and naturally beautiful destinations, the Mediterranean is also home to an unsurpassed culinary tradition. This gastronomic culture of using the very best fresh local ingredients cooked in a simple but delicious and healthy style is the inspiration for the three restaurants on Aegean Odyssey.
There is something magical about the tradition of taking tea at sea. On afternoons when you are not ashore, a selection of freshly-prepared sandwiches, cakes and scones will be served in the Observation Lounge. Accompanying these is, of course, a selection of refreshing teas and a choice of coffees. A cup of Darjeeling, a slice of freshly baked cake and the panoramic views of the Mediterranean: the perfect combination.
Cruise in Comfort, Relax in Style
Originally a mid-size vessel carrying up to 570 passengers, Aegean Odyssey’s new configuration includes generously-sized suites, junior suites and staterooms with and without balconies. This means she now accommodates fewer than 380. By creating these new staterooms we will add a dimension of luxury to the vessel and this has enabled us to create a special level of accommodation entitled “Concierge Class”. These guests will benefit from a few extra features to those enjoyed by all passengers on the ship. Classically elegant but far from stuffy and formal, Aegean Odyssey has been designed to offer the sophisticated traveler every comfort at sea.
From Books to Yoga
Aegean Odyssey has a beautifully appointed and well-stocked library. As well as a selection of books covering classical history and literature, the library also has range of modern fiction, magazines and newspapers. For those passengers who want to keep in touch with friends, check the markets or find out what’s happening in the world, there is also an internet center on board.
To attend to the body as well as the mind, you can relax on the sweeping sun decks and cool off in the outdoor pool. There is also a fully-equipped gym with lockers and showers, a spa with his and hers saunas, massage and beauty treatment rooms and early morning yoga on the Lido Deck. The hairdressers and beauty center are located on the Belvedere Deck adjacent to the reception area.
