Ship Facts: Aegean Odyssey Review (by Cruise Critic!)
A pleasant cruise but..........
The fact that this ship is a converted car ferry says a lot. The owners have done their best with it but the ship was laid down in 1973 and things like engine noise suppression cannot be as good as with modern, specifically built, cruise ships. Our cabin was on the Bridge deck and we experienced quite a lot of vibration which would have been a lot worse on the lower decks.

On our cruise, passengers were 90 less than capacity which was good as we thought the public facilities would have been really stretched had the ship been full. The ship is shortly to have a refit and an extra 8% capacity added. We really don't see how this will work if the ship runs to capacity as the main dining room will not cope with a single sitting nor will the lounge have anywhere near enough space.

With regard to food we can only describe this as average; it was certainly nothing memorable. Although wines were included with dinner, they were for the most part the same (probably cheap) Greek wines.

We did enjoy our cruise as the trips were certainly outstanding - most memorable was a private viewing of St Marks Basilica in Venice - awesome!

The crew on the ship and staff of VtoA were all excellent.
