Celestyal Crystal is a medium size-cruise ship (approx. 1,200 guests) with a big ship feel and she was renovated in 2017. Spacious, comfortable, and complete with a wide range of facilities and services, the friendly crew will welcome you onboard for an epic adventure into the idyllic Aegean.
With delectable dining experiences, a full programme of entertainment, a wellness centre, casino, pool and onboard sports activities, your time aboard Celestyal Crystal will be memorable and exciting.
When it comes to dining, guests can enjoy the fresh flavours of the Mediterranean and authentic Greek dishes, each prepared by a team of talented chefs. Main dining venues onboard, the Amalthia and Olympus restaurants both boast impressive menus and incredible service.
For those looking for something a little more casual, the Leda Buffet and Aura Grill maintain the same high standards while creating a more laid-back atmosphere.
A drinks package is included as standard with Celestyal Cruises, so there’s no need to worry about a high cabin bill at the end of your cruise.
Celestyal Crystal staterooms are managed by a personal steward and assistant steward to ensure you have everything you need and when you need it. A daily programme is delivered to your cabin, featuring the activities and other information for the following day. A convenient laundry service allows you to travel lightly and wash as you need.
Another highlight of Celestyal Cruises is the time the ship often spends in port. They tend to offer longer port calls in many places than some other cruise lines, giving you the chance to really delve deep and explore your destination.
Celestyal Cruises have received over 60 awards in the previous five years for their exceptional itineraries and hospitality – we think that says it all!
