Golden Star Cruises operates two ships. The Aegean I, a 280-cabin vessel, was built in 1971 and converted into a modern cruise ship in the late 1980s. The ship has sailed the world under various flags, as has Golden Star's newest ship, the Aegean II ( ex-Ivory and Ausonia, with 248 cabins including 14 suites). 

Golden Star Cruises specializes in three- and four-day cruises from Piraeus, Greece. Ports include the Greek islands and Kuşadasi, Turkey. The company is headquartered in Piraeus and caters mostly to Europeans, but it does welcome non-European travelers who are looking for a value-priced cruise experience in the Aegean and Mediterranean.

  • Update: Golden Star's Web site was last updated in 2009 and is no longer online. As far as we can tell, the line ceased operations in 2010.
