Deck Plan

Elysium Deck Plan


The categories of cabins range from A+ to C, all of which are extra-spacious, with the option for one queen-size bed or two twins. Many have picture windows, but even the cabins with portholes allow for watching the breathtaking passing scenery as they’re large and well above the water line. Share your photos with friends back home from the comfort of your cabin with Wi-Fi extended throughout the ship and enjoy amenities like minibars, flat-screen TVs with a bridge channel, movies, and news. All are en-suite with the private bathrooms supplied with hairdryers and you’ll also have spa robes, slippers, and fluffy beach towels.

Reception Area

The Reception Area serves as the space for check-in and more. It evokes the Zen-like vibe that you can expect throughout the ship, allowing you to relax and enjoy from the moment you step onboard. There are two desks to check in to ensure there won’t be a long wait – you’ll be welcomed with a smile and our tasty signature drink. After the cruise gets underway, this is where you’ll want to go for all-day complimentary tea and coffee, pick up a book or board game in the library cabinet, or shop the boutique with some fantastic gift items and much more.

Phos Wellness Deck

With an emphasis on wellness during our cruises, you’ll even find a wellness deck. This is a great place to melt any last bit of stress you might be carrying with you. Maybe you’ll sink into the large slumber sofa with a good read or sunbathe on one of the comfortable loungers which can even help regulate your circadian rhythm to beat jet lag. While the Jacuzzi is fabulous anytime, soaking is especially enjoyable under the stars and perhaps a full moon. Taking part in sunset yoga sessions, Pilates classes, and meditation are all possible here too.

Thalassa Main Deck & Bar

One of the most popular spots to hang out during the day is the Thalassa Main Deck & Bar. With our guests often sharing similar interests due to the nature of the cruise, many friendships have begun right here. Some guests even end up traveling with their new friends on future cruises together. This is an ideal place to mingle and get to know more about your fellow passengers, perhaps while enjoying some tasty Greek wine, a cold beer, or a refreshing cocktail. All-day dining is available too. In the evening, music sets the mood for socializing and discussing the highlights of the day.

Interior Lounge

While much of your trip will be enjoyed among the fresh air outdoors, when you’re ready to head indoors for a change of space, the Interior Lounge offers an elegant and relaxing space for unwinding or socializing. There are two 65” TV screens here for movie watching and occasionally educational seminars are hosted here providing a comfortable place for learning something new. You can enjoy a drink or a bite to eat here as well.

On Board Dining

Many of our guests note that dining was one of the highlights of their trip. One of the reasons for that is that our talented onboard chefs like to pick up fresh, local ingredients from the destinations we visit. That makes for especially tasty farm- or sea-to-table meals with authentic flavors to enhance the entire experience. They may be enjoyed as part of a sumptuous buffet, a multicourse meal, a la carte dishes, a special themed dinner, or a beach BBQ. Finger foods, alcoholic, and non-alcoholic drinks are available throughout the day as well. One thing is sure, you won’t go hungry on Elysium.

Gemaya Spa & Gym

The spa is another great place to enhance your experience on the Elysium. Experiencing back pain or sore muscles? Our resident spa therapist is an expert masseuse, great at soothing all sorts of aches and pains, or simply putting guests into a state of pure bliss. A range of wellness services is offered, from signature treatments to healing rituals from across the globe. Salon services like hairstyling, haircuts, manicures, and pedicures are provided so you can look your best for a fun evening event or anything else. With a mini-gym and classes like Pilates, it’s easy to keep up with your workout routine too.

Activities On Board

There will be many activity options to take part in while on shore. For example, you might visit one of the beautiful beaches in Mykonos to swim or take a walk to photograph the iconic Little Venice windmills. While you’re on the ship, there will be plenty to enjoy as well, perhaps take a cooking class or take advantage of the water sports gear like snorkeling equipment, an SUP, or a sea kayak for a fun session in the sea. As the ship is often far from light pollution out at sea, our guests can look forward to some incredible stargazing as well.


We pride ourselves on our hand-picked crew, all of whom are friendly, professional, and English speaking. Many are Greek which means you’ll have a wealth of knowledge of the country to take advantage of. Every staff member is passionate about sharing their love of Greece and happy to provide insider tips or answer questions you might have, providing a more well-rounded experience. They were chosen for their experience, expertise, and hospitality and include the captain and crew, cruise and hotel managers, a spa therapist, wellness and yoga coach, and the occasional expert on popular topics like archaeology.
