I chose this cruise for the itinerary and the quality excursions advertised. It is the smallest ship I have sailed on. I would not recommend the two night pre cruise stay in Seville. The excursions were good, especially Cordoba but the ... Read More
I was part of Bernard Magee's bridge group. Both this and the fact that we arrived back into the UK rather than having to make another flight with all the airport hasssle involved persuaded me to take this voyage. The observation ... Read More
Having read numerous reviews regarding Voyages to Antiquity (VTA) and their ship, Aegean Odyssey, I was puzzled by the diverse reviews. Some appeared to love it, whilst others hated it. My conclusion, after a cruise in May and talking with ... Read More
MDaniels, Customer Services @Voyages to Antiquity has responded
We much appreciate your very detailed feedback, as we know that it is only by listening to customers that we can maintain and improve the quality of our cruises. We invite passengers to complete questionnaires at the end of each cruise, and overall this year, more than 90% have rated the food and service, in both the on-board restaurants, to be good or excellent. The entertainment and excursion programmes have also been very highly rated. However, we are by no means complacent, and we acknowledge that when you travelled there were some problems with our shore excursion team. We apologise if you were unhappy with the service provided, but can advise you that certain personnel changes have been made and these, together with the benefits that come from greater experience, appear to have ironed out any inadequacies that then existed.
Thank you for posting this review. We note that you found much to enjoy during your cruise, so we hope that you will overcome your present reservations and book with us again at some point. We will then do our best to ensure that every aspect of your next cruise lives up wholly to your expectations.

We were really looking forward to this cruise which ... Read More
From the moment we arrived and were warmly greeted by Susana to when we departed we enoyed this cruise on the Guadalquivir river. Cabins on La Belle de Cadix, although small with minimal storage space, are clean and comfortable, especially ... Read More
We have been fortunate to cruise with lovely Azamara several times before, and are very fond of these lovely comfortable ships, whose staff excel at making guests feel comfortably at home. This time, we chose Quest for a favourite ... Read More
We have been on a number of cruises and have to say this has been the best by far! We had a balcony and it was the largest one of all the cruises we have gone on, our cabin was spacious and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was well appointed ... Read More
I found embarkation from Southampton Port very easy and efficient, with only a small queue to enter the ship..10 minutes approx. We were greeted with a glass of bubbly wine on arrival, and the stateroom was available. suitcases arrived ... Read More
