What’s included

Our cruises offer outstanding value for money. With so much included, there’s very little extra to pay for once you are on board:



Our holidays include return economy class scheduled flights, usually on British Airways. What’s more, we’re able to offer a limited number of Club Europe seats at a special upgrade fare from £299 (World Traveller Plus from £695 per person and Club World on our Southeast Asia programme). Early booking is advised.



We’ll make sure you and your luggage are transferred from the arrival airport to the hotel and then from your hotel directly to your cabin on board Aegean Odyssey. The same occurs on the journey home.

If you opt to make your own flight and hotel arrangements, you will need to make your own way to and from the ship.


Domestic connections via London

If the easiest way for you to get to the London airports is from your local airport, then you’ll be pleased to know that we can offer flights from Manchester, Leeds/Bradford, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Belfast, Jersey and Newcastle, subject to availability and connection times.

Please note that domestic connections are not included on our fly-cruise offers.
Some connecting flights may require transfers between London Heathrow and London Gatwick and if overnight accommodation is required, this is at an additional cost.


Shore excursions

We include escorted sightseeing in virtually every port of call – where we don’t, it’s because we feel that your time ashore is best spent exploring on your own. You'll be supplied with your individual QuietVox headset, a clever device through which you can hear the tour leader clearly even at the busiest sites, and at a distance. To keep you refreshed, we equip you with bottled water as you disembark for each day.


City and overland tour hotels

The perfect way to begin or end your cruise, our hotel stays and overland tours really allow you to get to know the city and area before you embark or after you disembark. We only use 5 star hotels if you book a Balcony Class cabin (categories A to D) and 4 or 5 star hotels for all other categories. Please refer to individual cruise descriptions for details of the hotel accommodation included for each voyage.

At city hotels, breakfast, tax, service charges and a hospitality desk are included. In addition, on our overland tours, lunch and dinner are included.
Pre- and post-sailing hotel stays are not included  on our fly-cruise offers.


Many overnights in port

To ensure that our guests have ample time to experience the wonderful destinations we visit, each cruise itinerary is designed with frequent evenings and extended stays in key ports of call.

You will enjoy overnight stays aboard Aegean Odyssey in many historically significant ports – in addition to the included excursion, with more time in port you can take advantage of optional additional tours available, or delight in an authentic shoreside experience such as an after-dinner stroll.


Onboard lecture programme

Selected for their expertise, our guest speakers will enlighten and entertain you throughout the cruise. Usually several experts are on board, each keen to share their knowledge with you. They also accompany you on shore excursions and some may make themselves available on board for a more informal discussion.


Full board and wine with dinner

All meals are included on board, as well as afternoon tea and late night snacks. We use fresh ingredients to create a variety of inspired menus. Water is served with all meals, and wine – beer or soft drinks if preferred – is included with dinner.


Gratuities on board

All tips for cabin stewards and restaurant staff on board Aegean Odyssey are included in your rate. Of course, you are welcome to show your appreciation to individuals offering exceptional service. A 12.5% gratuity is automatically charged on drinks.
