Aegean Odyssey Cruise Review by Jocklet

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2017
  • Destination: the British Isles & Western Europe

Iceland was the main attraction of this cruise and then the Islands of Great Britain. We traveled in the Owners Suite which was adequate but not anything special. Our cabin steward was excellent and nothing was too much trouble for him.

We found the food to be exceptionally boring and monotonous in its lack of variety and presentation. The staff were wonderful and couldn't do enough for you.

The entertainment was very basic and repetitive.

The itinerary which was the major reason for booking this particular cruise would have been amazing if they had adhered to it !!!!!!!!

The Captain chose not to dock at times but anchor offshore which meant traveling by the slow , uncomfortable and ancient tenders to port .

The organization of getting onto the tenders was slow and onerous.

The Excursion Desk was not open often enough and the Excursion Staff were amateurish in their efforts to explain changes to the itinerary .

On shore excursions were too short and rushed. When changes to sailing were made the time in Port was excessive and not what we expected or paid for or what the literature proposed.

Lectures were held on at sea days and then extra lectures were added when Ports were cancelled . These were apparently quite informative at times.

The ship was like a floating nursing home and despite the literature indicating that all passengers needed to be fit and able and sign a statement to say they were I have never seen so many elderly and unfit travelers.

The ship was clean and well maintained but obviously very old.
