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.

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").
