MV AEGEAN ODYSSEY is a premium class ship that was rebuilt to cater for cruising in the coastal waters of the central and eastern 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.
Originally a vessel carrying up to 570 passengers, Aegean Odyssey's new configuration includes generously-sized suites, junior suites and staterooms with and without balconies. She now carries an average of 350 passengers. By creating these new staterooms we have added a dimension of luxury to the vessel and this has enabled us to create a special level of accommodation entitled "Concierge Class".
Classically elegant, but far from stuffy and formal, Aegean Odyssey has been designed to offer the sophisticated traveller every comfort at sea.
She offers the personal service and intimate surroundings of a small vessel, has the ability to pass through the Corinth Canal, visit ports that are too small for larger vessels, and navigate around the scenic islands of the Adriatic
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 Odysse
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 and Mediterranean influenced food.

In the evening, dinner will include appetisers, soup, salads, a choice of three or four main courses and desserts.
THE TERRACE CAFé (breakfast, lunch and dinner)
With a combination of indoor and outdoor seating, sophisticated Mediterranean interior design and cooking on the open grill, the Terrace Café replicates the charm and ambiance of a seaside trattoria.
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 mouthwatering appetisers, try our delicious seafood paella or pick from the wide range of authentic Italian pizzas.
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.
