We were on the last tour before the ship goes into dry dock for refurbishing. Although the decor was dated and showed some wear, the ship had a sort of retro charm about it and everything was in working order. As others have mentioned, the ... Read more

I chose this cruise because of the wonderful itinerary around the islands in the Aegean. Embarkation was very well organised at Athens . Disembarkation early on the final day gave one the opportunity to explore Athens itself which was ... Read more

Let me begin by saying this was our 5th cruise with Voyages to Antiquity, so obviously we like the cruise line. What do we like in general? We like the size of the ship (approx 350 passengers), we like the friendliness of both ... Read more

I chose this tour on the recommendation of a friend and travel professional. I felt completely duped. the fire on board would have been forgivable if the crew had remotely been professional. Instead, the chief service manager opted to ... Read more

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

We chose the Grand Voyage to the Rivieras (London to Rome) on Aegean Odyssey in June-July 2016 because it was a small ship which promised an educational program and visits to antiquities. Selecting a four week cruise was always going to be ... Read more

Well, as ever, it was quite good. Emphasis on "quite". The good things. Despite my criticisms below, Voyages to Antiquity are good value for money. I cannot emphasise that enough. But... The staff. They are wonderful. ... 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
