  3. Aegean Odyssey
Wanted to see and explore Iceland and some of Scotland. We have sailed with this company several times in the past, but I can assure you it will not happen again. From the time we left port there were problems. The water pressure in our cabin was so bad that it was a joke. A joke we tried to have rectified for EIGHT days before the issue was resolved. We were offered a remotely located smaller cabin with half the storage on day five but declined it secondary to the severe rolling experienced in the North Atlantic. Food was beautifully presented but lukewarm at best unless you ordered a la cart. The sewage smell was so overwhelming at times that we couldn’t sleep. That problem was rectified on day TWELVE. The excursions were pitiful compared to past experiences on this ship. They did not run on time, failed almost universally in attaining their stated destinations and resorted to instructions to watch as we drove by! The lectures were quite good as was the attention delivered by cabin stewards and the wait staff in restaurants. During the trip, I fell at night and suffered a massive hemaoma that involved my whole lower right leg. After notifying reception, my husband was told that medical opened at 7:30am. Eventually I was treated with cream and diuretics. MORAL of story don’t plan on adequate treatment if you suffer a life threatening event! Even after returning home my doctor could not get X-rays due to size of hematoma and swelling. She was horrified that I had flown home with my leg in that condition.
