Owned, operated, and staffed by Overseas Adventure Travel, the M/V Athena small ship was designed exclusively to carry two small groups of 20-25 travelers (average of 22) from the Aegean to the Adriatic seas. On the main deck, you’ll find our reception area and ship’s library. For relaxation, the lounge/bar features inviting leather couches and soft chairs. Topside, a Sun Deck—with a bar and open grill area—has classic wooden deck chairs for admiring the scenery. When it’s time for meals, our large dining area at the stern features an open seating policy. While cruising, we’ll enjoy daily breakfast buffets; sit-down lunches, and dinners featuring international and local specialties paired with regional wines. And for a restful night’s sleep, there are 26 cabins—24 twins and 2 singles. Each cabin features an identical private bath with shower, and includes a movable bed, flat-screen TV, telephone, safe, mini-refrigerator, individually-controlled air-conditioning, hair dryer, and dual electrical outlets.
