MV Aegean Odyssey
AEGEAN ODYSSEY is a premium class ship that is being especially rebuilt to cater for cruising in the coastal waters of the central and southern Mediterranean. The vessel provides the best features of a mid-size ship such as passenger space, a choice of restaurants and stability in inclement weather. It also has the personal service and intimate surroundings of a small ship. Other advantages of the ship's size are that it is able visit ports that are too small for larger vessels, navigate around the scenic islands of the Adriatic and Mediterranean and can also pass through the Corinth Canal. In contrast to the massive vessels cruising to and from the major ports of the Mediterranean and Southeast Asia, Aegean Odyssey is a mid-sized ship adapted for island and coastal cruising. This means that she can visit smaller, less crowded harbors and sail closer the coast enabling you to really appreciate the magical views. Her size allows Voyages to Antiquity to navigate the great rivers of Southeast Asia and berth in the heart of Bangkok, Yangon (Rangoon) and Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon). The vessel provides the best features of a mid-size ship such as passenger space, a choice of restaurants and stability in inclement weather. It also has the personal service and intimate surroundings of a small ship.
CRUISE IN COMFORT, RELAX IN STYLE
Originally a mid-size vessel carrying up to 570 passengers, Aegean Odyssey's new configuration includes generously sized suites, junior suites and staterooms with and without balconies. This means she now accommodates fewer than 380. By creating these new staterooms we will add a dimension of luxury to the vessel and this has enabled us to create a special level of accommodation entitled "Concierge Class". These guests will benefit from a few extra features to those enjoyed by all passengers on the ship. Classically elegant but far from stuffy and formal, Aegean Odyssey has been designed to offer the sophisticated traveller every comfort at sea.
In addition to the standard cabin features such as windows (instead of portholes), a flatscreen television, safe, hair dryer, and luxury bedding, passengers in Concierge Class staterooms will also enjoy: A welcome bottle of champagne, Refrigerated mini bar, Complimentary bottled water in all staterooms, Dressing gown and slippers, Boutique bathroom amenities, DVD selection, Priority sightseeing boarding, Personal concierge service.

The hairdressers and beauty centre are located on the Belvedere Deck adjacent to the reception area.
WONDERFUL FOOD, GOOD WINE AND FRIENDLY SERVICE
As well as being one of the world's most historically interesting and naturally beautiful destinations, the Mediterranean is also home to an unsurpassed culinary tradition. This gastronomic culture of using the very best fresh local ingredients cooked in a simple but delicious and healthy style is the inspiration for the three restaurants on Aegean Odyssey.
THE MARCO POLO (lunch and dinner)
The most formal of the ship's restaurants, the Marco Polo, has a full waiter service, casual country-club elegance (a jacket is suggested at dinner) and Mediterranean influenced food. At lunchtime, you can choose from a variety of starters such as Parma ham and melon or tricolore salad, three dishes of the day including grilled fish, a pasta special and a choice of desserts, fruit and cheese.

THE TERRACE CAFE (breakfast, lunch and dinner)
With a combination of indoor and outdoor seating, sophisticated Mediterranean interior design and cooking on the open grill, the Terrace Cafe replicates the charm and ambiance of a seaside trattoria. As well as the grill, there is a large buffet with hot dishes of the day, a selection of salads, Italian antipasti such as bruschetta, beef carpaccio or fresh mozzarella drizzled with virgin olive oil. Pasta is served with a choice of homemade Italian sauces and for dessert there is a large selection including ice creams. For liquid refreshment there is a wine and aperitif bar.

On afternoons when you are not ashore, a selection of freshly prepared sandwiches, cakes and scones will be served in the Observation Lounge. Accompanying these is, of course, a selection of refreshing teas and a choice of coffees. A cup of Darjeeling, a slice of freshly baked cake and the panoramic views of the Mediterranean: the perfect combination.
If you prefer to start your day in the comfort of your cabin, then our room service staff will be happy to bring a continental breakfast. There is also a limited room service menu available throughout the day from noon to midnight.
LATE NIGHT SNACKS
For those passengers enjoying a late night discussing the excitements of the day's sightseeing, a selection of light snacks freshly prepared by our chefs will be available in the Lido and Rendezvous bars.
AT YOUR SERVICE
Ask any world traveller where they receive the best service and they will undoubtedly answer the Far East.
