The itinerary was very interesting, and having traveled on the ship previously, you can always expect to meet up again with people that you know. The atmosphere on board is comfortable and friendly. The ship offers good value for the cost, ... Read more

The officers and crew did a great job handling an onboard fire situation in the English channel. Our safety was assured and the company arranged repairs in Cherburg France. They also offered free drinks for days and rearranged our shore ... Read more

This was a wonderful cruise. The ship is small which meant we got to know many other passengers quite well and we plan to keep in touvh with some of them.. The service on this ship was second to none. The largely Asian staff were so ... Read more

This was our second cruise on the Aegean Odyssey. Our first cruise in January 2015 was a bit disappointing, mainly because of problems with discoloured water and some poor shore excursions. However, we decided to give them a second chance ... Read more

I was prepared to love this ship as the concept completely appeals to me: not a mega ship, emphasis on education and destinations. But my tiny, sterile, airless cabin ("Premium Outside" with a "partially obstructed" ... Read more

We are small boat travellers and picked the Aegean Odyssey in part for this reason. This is a clean ship with hospitable staff. The food is simple but good. The only criticism is the quality of the coffee in the morning. We would very much ... Read more

WE were attracted to the "Singapore and Islands of Indonesia" cruise because of the ports of call and the concept of having "expert" lecturers on board to enhance the experience. All in all the concept worked. The lecturers were good, the ... Read more
