This was a 7 day cruise on the Seabourn Odyssey sailing from Athens . Boarding in Athens port was a dream. No queues, just straight to the desk and checked in, the benefit of just 450 passengers. We were welcomed by in our cabin (although referred to as suites on board) by our friendly stewardess who offered speciality soaps and pointed us in the direction of the bottle of champagne on ice. The Seabourn Odyssey is a small ship by today's standards but it is extremely well appointed with a high ratio of passenger space and a good size swimming pool. The crew in the restaurants, bars and all around the ship are extremely attentive. Dining on the ship is a highlight and food in all the restaurants is of a very high standard. The main dining room was very good although service at dinner was sometimes quite slow. The more casual, and mainly self service, Collonade restaurant was our usual stop for breakfast and lunch and the staff soon recognised us and our wishes. In the evening the Collonade is transformed into waiter served dining and the different theme each evening was of a very high standard. Evening entertainment is the usual resident singers/dancers with a couple of guest entertainers during the week. Shows are not big productions which may be found on mega ships. Dancing in 'The Club' every evening was great with a very good trio and the resident band with singer. A very good standard of music. Shore excursions were pretty expensive. There was always a local person on board at each port of call to distribute maps and suggestions. Guests on board were generally for the USA, Australia/NZ, British and assorted Europeans. A convivial mix. It would be very difficult to find any criticism with our Seabourn cruise.
