Small ship cruising at its best
The size of our ship allows us to visit harbours other vessels cannot reach, meaning we can offer a broader range of destinations. For example, we sail up the Guadalquivir River into the centre of Seville and are ideally sized to access the smaller ports and islands.
We pride ourselves on the destinations we offer; from the famous sites to the lesser known but equally stunning places, they have all been carefully selected in conjunction with noted historians. Some of our itineraries have a theme at their heart, such as The Crusades or Byzantine history, while others take you across continents and combine outstanding sites.
Fascinating sites on shore
We believe that your enjoyment ashore is as important as your experience on board. In fact, on many of our Mediterranean cruises, you’ll likely spend as much time on land as at sea.
Our included shore excursions use the very best guides and you'll also have use of your own Quietvox device which enables you to hear your guide even in the busiest places.
You'll appreciate the opportunity to explore the great cities including Venice, Rome and Athens during your included 4 or 5-star hotel stay – so you get the most from your trip.
Travel with the experts
Accompanying you on each cruise are celebrated guest speakers who have been carefully selected for their knowledge of the areas we visit and their ability to bring the history of these remarkable civilisations and cultures to life. Lecturers include historians, professors, archaeologists and more, all well regarded in their respective fields.
We believe in offering exceptional value for money by including the things that matter most. You'll find that sightseeing tours, land stays and gratuities are extra on many cruise lines, which can amount to significant sums over the course of your holiday.
Once you're on board Aegean Odyssey, there is very little to budget for - we've even included a choice of wine with dinner (beer or soft drinks if you prefer)! And little touches – such as bottled water on shore excursions and good quality bedding – really do make the difference.
A great deal for single passengers
We offer low supplements, dedicated single cabins and a friendly atmosphere on board our small ship. And as you'll go ashore on the included shore excursions with the same group of people each time, it's really easy to get to know your fellow passengers. Our open-seating dining policy furthers this camaraderie - you can join new acquaintances for dinner each evening. It's the perfect environment for making new friends.
