With her handsome profile and a traditional walk around promenade deck, the 16,144grt Portuguese registered Astoria is a classic beautifully restored ocean going cruise ship carrying just 550 guests and offers a wide selection of very well appointed and comfortable public lounges and cabin accommodation spanning eight passenger decks serviced by two lifts.
Her enhanced facilities include the impressive two sectioned Olissipo Restaurant with an alternative buffet dining option in the Lotus lounge, a choice of five comfortable lounges and bars including the Calypso main show lounge, plus a nightclub, cinema, casino, shopping boutique, photo shop, library, card and bridge room, fitness and health centre with sauna and massage facilities, an unheated outdoor swimming pool and a beautiful marbled reception area.
A majority of cabins enjoy an ocean view and all the private en-suite cabins have a bath with shower, a hairdryer and personal safe, a TV for movies and news and information channels and a fridge with a mini bar facility. There is a wide selection of twin bedded and double bedded cabin categories and designated singles, the majority of which enjoy an ocean view. Plus, there are also more luxurious de luxe cabins, junior suites and spacious balcony suites and a splendid owner’s presidential suite.
Exclusively for adults
For the enjoyment of our adult passengers, Astoria cruises operate as ‘child free’. This means that even during school holiday times you can enjoy the pleasures of cruising in the company of adult passengers only. We will however accept teenagers who are 16 years old or above at the time of sailing but they must be accompanied by adult passengers. Families will however be welcome to cruise aboard Astor although it should be noted that there are no dedicated recreation facilities for children.
