Review of mv Aegean Odyssey
MV Aegean Odyssey is owned by Voyages to Antiquity – a one-ship company founded in 2009. The Aegean Odyssey ship was originally built in 1973 as a ferry (Zim ro-ro ferry Narcis), and in 1988 converted to a cruise ship. She was substantially rebuilt for the second time in 2010.
History - construction and ownership
The 12,094-ton, 388-passenger premium class ship mv Aegean Odyssey is classically elegant and offers travellers every comfort at sea, relaxed atmosphere and high level of personal service.
Cruise itinerary program
Aegean Odyssey itinerary program is based on the Canary Islands and Mediterranean cruises departing from Rome, Venice, Athens, Istanbul, as well as Asia cruises sailing out of Singapore. Aegean Odyssey is perfectly suited for cruising to the smallest Mediterranean inlets that larger cruise ships can’t reach. She also navigates the great Asian rivers, including Saigon and Yangon, as well as Guadalquivir River in Spain.
There are seven passenger decks on mv Aegean Odyssey. The total number of cabins is 198, in 14 grades, of which 6 are Suites, 42 - Balcony rooms, and 41 Inside. The additional works in 2013 created new 18 outside cabins on the Lido Deck. 57 of the existing staterooms were rebuilt, and 80 additional were reconfigured into 40 staterooms with private balconies.
Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks
The open-seating Marco Polo Restaurant is the main dining room aboard Aegean Odyssey. The Terrace Café features a combination of outdoor and indoor seating, with Mediterranean sophisticated interior design, as well as cooking on the open grill. In the evenings, the Tapas recreates the informal atmosphere of a bistro with delicious seafood paella and a wide range of Italian pizzas.
Shipboard entertainment options - Fun and Sport
The Observation Lounge and Piano Bar are situated on the Observation Deck and feature unforgettable views on all sides. In this area, the wireless internet connection is offered. During the 2013 refit, the Athena Health Spa was moved several levels lower. Other amenities include the Lido Bar (2-deck), Ambassador Lounge, Charleston Lounge, Fitness Studio & Gym (featuring free daily sunrise classes), Beauty Salon, library, boutique, pool and Internet Centre.
mv Aegean Odyssey wiki
MS Aegean Odyssey is the only liner operated by Voyages to Antiquity (cruise company established in 2009). The vessel was originally built as Ro-Ro cruise ferry Narcis (converted to a cruise ship in 1988). It was built under yard number 617. Its construction started on June 18, 1971. The ship was launched on June 18, 1972, and delivered to Zim Navigation on August 22, 1973.
In 2010, the ship was renamed "Aegean Odyssey" following an extensive drydock-refit project done in Ermoupoli (on Syros Island, Greece). Vessel's passenger capacity was reduced from 570 to 400, in order to provide larger cruise staterooms. During the refurbishment, the cinema was replaced with a lecture hall and also new dining venues were added. The inaugural cruise for Voyages to Antiquity departed on April 30, 2010. As shipowner was registered the Piraeus-based company Samos Maritime Co Ltd (later changed to The Aegean Experience Maritime Co Ltd).
Fun fact is, that the cruise ship can pass through Corinth Canal (only 70 ft / 21,4 m wide at its base). On all Aegean Odyssey cruises is complimentary provided an expert lecture program led by renown guest speakers.
During its service, the vessel was operated under the names Narcis ferry (1973-1985, by Zim Navigation), Alkyon (1985-1986, by Dolphin Hellas Shipping), Aegean Dolphin (1986-1996, by Dolphin Hellas Shipping), Aegean I (1996-2010, by Golden Sun Cruises) and Aegean Odyssey (since 2010, by Aegean Experience Maritime Co Ltd, in 2016 renamed to "Aegean Odyssey Maritime Co Ltd").
