Any info on Royal Olympic Cruises??

I am considering a cruise on Royal Olympic's new ship, Olympic Voyager. I cannot find much info on this cruise line--only that most of the ships are old and run by Greek crews. I would appreciate any opinion you may have on the food, service,etc.
Thanks.

They have a great web site. Use a search engine and type in "Royal Olympic Cruise Line" I have heard they're excellent. Very Greek. Very professional. I would consider them, I think.

I have travelled on this cruise line more than once. I find them friendly, open, and well-run. The ships are smaller and older, yes, but that is part of the charm. You will find them recommended highly at www.greektravel.com because they really know their stuff.

I am going on a Royal Olympic Cruise in 2 days. I tried to get a booking on the Olympic Voyager, but it was sold out. The O.V. itinerary & price seemed terrific. I was told that the Triton, on which I'm sailing, originally was part of the Cunard fleet. I was attracted to the size of the ships, having sailed on large (Crystal), small (Windstar) and in-between. Greek ships are reputed to have excellent food, as well. I found it possible to upgrade to a very superior room by paying only slightly more than the package price. I'll post my findings when I return, but my search of the marketplace convinced me that RO is worth a try.

Hi Dean,
I am a travel agent and can tell you that you have chosen the right ship. The Voyager, which is being christened now, is the fastest ship ever built (with the exception of the new Carnival Victory now being built).

The itinerary can not be beat. I will be sailing her in 2001.

If you prefer more time at sea, this is the wrong ship for you.

I receive mixed reactions from my customers on Olympic's other ships. Old, not maintained well, food just so-so. I cruised their other ships and found them average. If you do not care for the European culture, then do not sail any of their ships.

If you are a steak and potato person find another cruise line.

Some people are very critical, especially on this forum. If you love cruising, you will just love the Voyager, I am sure.

Talk to your travel agent, he/she has loads of info on this new ship.

Happy planning,

Paul

Please, if anyone has information about the Olympic Voyager kindly let me know. I am very concerned since it is soo new. I am booked on the August 5 sailing with my family (includes two cranky teens). I would appreciate any information that can be offered esp. about what to do at the ports--Istanbul, Ephessos, Jerusalem, Cairo, Santorini, Rhodes and Mykonos. We are looking forward to the cruise but are a little nervous. Any reassurances will help greatly. Thanks!

Sorry to add a non-answer to this thread, but I'm eager to hear reactions to this cruise. We're planning a Med cruise of some sort for fall 2001, and the Oly.Voy.sounds great. I wonder, tho', if all that very fast travel will preclude lazing around on deck. Will passengers be forced below by the wind & noise, as on a Greek hydrofoil? Hope you early bookers will respond on this forum!

Jeez Teri,the ship is 25,000 tons, 590 feet long.....it's not an airboat.

The fastest it goes is 27 knots, compared to other ships that are 22 - 24 knots. You would not notice the difference.

My husband & myself are contemplating a cruise with the Olympic Voyager (new ship) to the Amazon in January. Anyone out there been on an Amazon Cruise? Also, what kind of weather can we expect in January?
