Engine problems have forced Voyages to Antiquity to cancel 10 cruises on the Aegean Odyssey as the ship will need to undergo repairs to her starboard power unit.
The 48-year-old ship, which started life as a ferry, has been cruising with 350 passengers aboard since 1988.
Affected cruises are:
May 2, 2019 – The Black Sea & Greek Islands
May 13, 2019 – Classical Greece & Southern Italy
May 23, 2019 – Renaissance Italy & Historic Islands
June 4, 2019 – European Connoisseur
June 18, 2019 – Land of the Midnight Sun
July 3, 2019 – Baltic Capitals & St Petersburg
July 16, 2019 – The Norwegian Fjords
July 30, 2019 – Iceland, Faroes & Shetlands
August 14, 2019 – The Three Rivers
August 26, 2019 – Mediterranean Odyssey
The one-ship company said all guests are being contacted and will be provided with a full refund.
“We have been assured that, following its period in drydock, Aegean Odyssey will be back in service in time to fulfil the remainder of its scheduled cruise timetable, starting with the Rome-Venice and associated future Grand Voyage itineraries departing from 7 September 2019,” the company said.
