Voyages to Antiquity
AEGEAN ODYSSEY is apremium 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.
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.
LIFE ON BOARD: FROM BOOKS TO YOGA
Aegean Odyssey has a beautifully appointed and well-stocked library. As well as a selection of books covering classical history and literature, the library also has range of modern fiction, magazines and newspapers. For those passengers who want to keep in touch with friends, check the markets or find out what's happening in the world, there is also an internet centre on board. To attend to the body as well as the mind, you can relax on the sweeping sun decks and cool off in the outdoor pool. There is also a fully equipped gym with lockers and showers, a spa with his and hers saunas, massage and beauty treatment rooms and early morning yoga on the Lido Deck. 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. In the evening, dinner will include appetisers, soup, salads, a choice of three or four main courses and desserts (see menu). The complimentary house wines are carefully sourced from Italy, Croatia, Sicily and Greece. There is also a full wine list of superior vintages available.
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. The day starts in the Terrace Cafe with breakfast when you can either enjoy a healthy combination of yoghurt, fruit and muesli or indulge in eggs, bacon or omelette.
TAPAS ON THE TERRACE (dinner)
In the evenings, Tapas on the Terrace recreates the informal yet sophisticated atmosphere of a Mediterranean bistro. Here you can choose from a selection of mouth-watering appetizers, try our delicious seafood paella or pick from the wide-range of authentic Italian pizzas. Equal care has been given to the selection of the wines served at Tapas on the Terrace; these will be served at your table by our helpful waiting staff.
AFTERNOON TEA - one of England's greatest contributions to civilisation
There is something magical about the tradition of taking tea at sea. 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.
We consider the cruises unsuitable for children under the age of
