Ship Facts: Aegean Odyssey Review (by Cruise Critic!)
A Perfect Cruise

I do not want to go into great detail here about the facilities provided aboard the ship, other reviewers have already done that. However, I will say that I found the ship to be attractive and elegant on board (but decorated with some hideous artworks - but that is such a minor point, though one that caused a degree of amusement amongst some of us). The crew were truly fantastic and that was everyone from senior officers down to the deck crew, guys you would not normally have any dealings with. The food was super, not necessarily the very best that I have had at sea but few lines can compare with Oceania in that regard. Anyway, it was good and with a huge variety. The entertainment on board was really low key and thus delightful. The shore excursions were superbly organised, eat your heart out Swan Hellenic. Indeed, in many respects Voyages to Antiquity and Swan Hellenic are very similar but personally I think that the food, service and overall organisation and on board (and on shore) experience put Voyages to Antiquity way ahead of Swan Hellenic.
Pre-cruise we were accommodated in super hotels in Egypt and again at the end of the cruise in a luxury hotel in Istanbul. These were all superb as was the organisation of everything while we were in those places.
Reading a the negative reviews of Aegean Odyssey, it is as though those people were on another ship. I'd return to her without hesitation and have recommended her to others already. That said, if you want lots of on board diversions and entertainment then this is not the ship for you but if you want a destination oriented and culturaly-rich cruise and don't want to have mindless on board entertainment - cruising for adults - then this is the perfect ship.
