Odyssey - Truk
In May, 1999 Odyssey International, Inc., purchased the Marie-Anda from Blue Lagoon Cruises who is located in Lautoka, Fiji. The Marie-Anda was built in 1978 in Fiji for Blue Lagoon Cruises to be used as a small cruise ship which accommodated 40 passengers for 1-7 day cruises around the Yasawa Islands in Fiji.
In July, 1999, renovations began on the Marie-Anda transforming her into the breathtaking new Odyssey. The 20 cabins were removed and replaced with 9 very spacious staterooms and a comfortable entertainment lounge. The Odyssey is 132 feet long, with a 24 foot beam and draft of 6 feet, built entirely of steel.
- 9 Spacious Staterooms for 16 guests
The Odyssey boasts nine large, luxurious staterooms all fully carpeted with private air conditioning controls, windows or large portholes, and private toilet, shower and sink all in every stateroom. Seven of the staterooms are equipped to easily accommodate two single travelers in twin beds or a couple in a spacious king size bed. Also available are two staterooms for single travelers only – they have all the features of the double staterooms and easily accommodate the single traveler in a twin bed. All staterooms have a 32" monitor with access to onboard entertainment system. Staterooms are cleaned daily.
The most striking room on the Odyssey. Attractive Fijian teak tables that can easily seat a full boat and her crew. Full service wet bar, which is made out of coconut wood (also known as palm wood. After coconut trees fall, the wood is collected, treated and used to make gorgeous furniture.)
The Odyssey’s dining salon is fully carpeted and air conditioned with two walls of spacious windows for viewing the beauty of the islands in Truk Lagoon.
Delicious buffet-style meals are the norm for the Odyssey.
The comfortable lounge is where you'll find a variety of ways to entertain yourself. We have a well-stocked fridge to quench your thirst while you settle in for a good movie (with over 500 titles to choose from — even current ones). You can also find a good book to read in the library, or look through our various fish identification books. Odyssey also has a well-stocked boutique located in the lounge.
During your stay in Truk Lagoon you will find that the majority of your diving will easily be done directly off the Odyssey while we are moored over the dive site. Once you arrive and set up your gear in your own private seat and protected dive locker, you won't have to take your gear apart until you prepare to go home. Your tank (air or Nitrox) will be conveniently filled at your seat.
You'll find that the spacious dive platform (13’ x 6’) has plenty of room for two divers plus a divemaster. One 7’ ladder and an in-water elevator to help you out of the water where you can step up to the convenient freshwater shower to rinse off with. Just 4 steps to the dive deck and you'll find the camera rinse tanks (one on either side of the boat). Past the camera rinse tanks are the gear rinse tanks.
For our photographers, we have a large, sturdy, 3-tiered, carpeted photo table for all your working needs.
