What’s Included

Enthusiastic personnel, modern facilities and spaces, activities for every taste and flawless service. At Celestyal Cruises we have everything covered.

We have one crew member for every three to four guests on our cruises so you will receive impeccable, personal service at all times. Our crew is enthusiastic, exceedingly polite, experienced, friendly and willing to meet all your needs immediately and to your satisfaction.

On board Celestyal Olympia and Celestyal Crystal, you will find self-service, interactive kiosks with an easy-to-use and intuitive application with the following services:

  • Credit card registration
  • Shore Excursion bookings
  • Guest’s statements

Also, our on-board site features your cruise’s daily program, daily menu, on-board events & shows and information regarding Celestyal Cruises. From here, you will also be able to book excursions while checking your balance.

The Celestyal Cruises’ experience starts when you arrive at the port. Your luggage is left at the “Drop Off” point in the embarkation terminal where it is scanned for security reasons. After the warmest of welcomes, we then deliver your luggage to your stateroom.

Each of our Staterooms has an assigned personal stateroom steward and assistant stateroom steward who will know you by name by your first evening on board. This incredibly competent duo is responsible for the daily cleaning, sanitation and overall comfort and functionality of your stateroom. The stateroom steward and assistant stateroom steward will work for you throughout your cruise and will help you with any request or question you may have. 

Our stateroom stewards and all other members of our housekeeping crew are devoted to providing you with flawless service in the most cheerful, discreet, polite and professional manner - much as you would expect to find at a fine hotel. As with the entire Celestyal Cruises Officers, Crew & staff, the experience and genuine warmth of our housekeeping crew is evident in everything they do.

We deliver the next day’s daily program to your stateroom every evening. The daily program lists the schedule and provides detailed information about all of the day’s on-board activities and events, as well as departure times for all arrivals and destinations, Shore Excursion timetables, dining hours, events or tributes, and the opening and closing hours for all of our shops, the gym, spa, hair salon, nightclub and casino. The daily program will also indicate the suggested evening attire and any other information that makes your cruise as enjoyable and interesting as possible.

Cruise rates include three complete and wholly delicious meals every day, both a la carte and buffet. Breakfast is international with a Greek touch and includes freshly-baked rolls, muffins and Danish pastries. At lunch and dinner, choose from a mouth-watering selection of freshly-made appetizers, salads and soups, as well as traditional Greek dishes, all prepared for your delight, followed by a variety of Greek pastries and sweets, rich ice creams, cheese and fresh fruits. 

Our meals are filling and celebratory. We want to take you on a journey deep into the heart of Greek gastronomy with friends at your table and healthy Mediterranean meals that please even the most demanding palate.

If you have any specific dietary requirements, allergies or intolerances, please let us know in advance so that we can make the necessary adjustments wherever possible. Contact our Guest Services Department via email at [email protected]

Our pool decks are a fantastic place for a refreshing swim or if you just want to lie down on a comfortable sun lounger and order a delicious cocktail. Just grab a pool towel from your stateroom and come on up – you might even catch sight of a pod of dolphins if you decide to stroll over to the railing and gaze out over the deep blue waters of the Aegean. We also have a smaller, shallower pool for younger cruisers (the size and number of pools vary from ship to ship).

If you want to keep in shape while you cruise with us, feel free to visit our fully-equipped gym (towels provided). We also have a Jacuzzi available for a post-workout soak or if you just want to relax and enjoy some hydrotherapy (the size of each gym and available amenities vary from ship to ship).

We bring the magic of a night at a Greek taverna on board – you will be unable to resist the call of the bouzouki, and you’ll soon find yourself on one of our dance floors performing the “sirtaki” from Zorba the Greek with 100 of your closest friends! If you’re a bit shy about your moves, we offer Greek dancing classes during the day. 
You’ll also find classical concerts, disco, karaoke, line dancing and talent shows – there’s music everywhere on board our ships! Each of our cruise ships offers a nightclub with a high-quality sound system and professional club lighting where you can have a drink while DJs spin the best contemporary sounds, both Greek and international.

Celestyal Cruises is known for its fantastic on-board entertainment: bingo, cooking classes, dancing, exercise programs, games, handicrafts, language lessons, history and archaeology lectures, music performances, sports tournaments and trivia contests – there’s always something to do on board for everyone; from kids to seniors. We pack every day with fun, it never stops! 

Our activities are a great way to spend time with the people you love and to meet your fellow guests. We get started with our activities first thing in the morning and we continue all day and throughout the evening. There’s always something to do on board, even if all you want to do is sit down with someone you love and a backgammon set (we also have checkers, chess and other board games).

On our seven-night cruises we host a Gala Night and Captain’s Cocktail in honor of our guests, and we ask that you attend in formal dress: a cocktail dress or something smart for ladies; jacket and tie for men.
