As our name, Classic, suggests, we offer a traditional cruising experience to our passengers in a relaxing, friendly and informal style. Warm hospitality extends from your cabin steward, your waiter and bar staff who take care of any of your requests with attentive, good, old-fashioned service. While on the larger ships you can feel that you're just a number, cruise on Athena and you will be recognised by name, enjoy fine cuisine and high-class entertainment. Our Officers, Chefs and Crew are cruising veterans with excellent professional reputations built after decades of worldwide cruising. Our repeat guests average from 30 per cent up to 50 per cent on longer cruises, some making the line voyage to or from Europe an annual event. Our reputation is to offer value-for-money cruise holidays and many of our passengers return with friends or family, which to us is the ultimate compliment. During the 2009/10 cruise season, Athena offers a wide range of cruises from Fremantle and Adelaide, our cruises start from two nights for the first time cruiser or for the seasoned seafarer longer 24-, 35- and 37-night ocean voyages. Athena is the flagship of the Classic International fleet, which comprises five ships in total.
Much planning goes into producing our original floorshows and cabarets to make each evening a special event. Our cruise director and team are also there to look after you with various activities held daily both indoors and around the pool on board Athena.
