Aegean Odyssey Cruise Review by Amherstview Cruiser

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jan 2013
  • Destination: the South Pacific

5 days into our cruise the Ship lost the air conditioning. For 6 nights, 5 days we were subjected to extreme heat onboard (cabins, restaurants, common areas). The captain and/or ship manager were less than forthcoming about the problems, extending no information for days and then very limited info.

Attending lectures in the Ambassador Room were uncomfortably hot, meals in the Marco Polo Room were limited, closed one evening because of the heat and other evenings too hot to dine there. Meals were not enjoyable because of the extreme heat. Cabin temperatures were in the 90's with no air movement at all. Passengers resorted to sleeping on the promenade deck and in common areas around the ship. My medications (pills) disintegrated because of the heat.

The ship arrived late in EVERY port, thereby limiting our excursions (eliminating some points of interest), and rushed through many others. Upon leaving Hong Kong we noticed considerable black smoke & soot emitting from the smoke stacks which continued throughout the cruise. Crews washed down the promenade deck each morning to rid the black soot. T.V. channels were non-existent and Internet was intermittent - mostly down for the whole cruise.

Upon disembarking in Bali, instructions were given by a crew member circulating around the ship to inform passengers (suspect intercom was now down). All in all a very unpleasant experience aboard Aegean Odyssey, BUT cannot say enough about the crew who managed to smile and work tirelessly throughout.

No apologies from Aegean Odyssey.
