What a disastrous cruise experience.
It is difficult to know where to start with this review. We always try hard to give a balanced and factual review. On this occasion there is not much we can say which is positive.
The Aegean Odyssey is an old ship (nearing its 50th year). Originally built as a ferry it has been refitted as a small passenger ship. To be fair it not in bad shape for a vessel of its age. Being a small ship it dos not have the facilities of the large cruise ships. That was one reason for choosing this cruise.
We had a deluxe balcony cabin which was large enough for us, but many cabins are little more than a cupboard with small wardrobe space. The toilet system broke down for a day and after that was not the most effective system. The shower was not the best in the world as the water stayed in the shower tray which was not designed to drain water away. The nice Molton Brown toiletries didn’t really make up for the dirty brown water that came out of the tap and shower. We had a small refrigerator which was stocked with soft drinks and daily water was delivered. The cabin was serviced twice daily to a high standard. On arrival we had a bottle of bubbly and some petits fours deliver to our cabin. These little extras come with the deluxe cabin.
