Athena . . . named after the Greek Goddess of wisdom.
With her handsome profile and a traditional walk around
promenade deck, Athena is a modern, elegant cruise
ship and offers a wide selection of well appointed and
comfortable public lounges and cabin accommodation
spanning eight passenger decks serviced by two lifts.
ATHENA was originally built as a transatlantic ocean
liner and in 1994 the vessel changed ownership and
was virtually stripped to her hull and re-constructed
at an amazing cost of $US150 million and restored as
a beautiful new premium rated more contemporary
In contrast to the present generation of super liners,
ATHENA offers a memorable cruising experience
which combines luxury with the warmth and intimacy
of a vessel carrying no more than 600 passengers. The
special atmosphere on board this classic ship is enhanced
by the assistance you will receive from the Officers and
Crew who will ensure someone is always on hand to
provide an efficient yet unobtrusive service.
ATHENA offers relaxed seating arrangements for dinner
in the elegant surroundings of the restaurant, after
which you may wish to take advantage of the excellent
and varied entertainment programme, try your luck in
the ship’s casino, take in a film, or simply relax with an
after-dinner drink in one of the ship’s bars.
During the day you can participate in the various
sporting activities available, enjoy a swim or just relax
in the sauna.
ATHENA is a ship full of charm which offers a unique
environment at sea…
