About Celestyal Cruises Cruises

Celestyal's mainly short, port-intensive itineraries don't leave much time for onboard activities, but they stick as closely as possible to the traditional cruise format. Cruises attract a wide, multilingual spectrum of passengers to Greek itineraries.

Who goes on Celestyal Cruises cruise ships?

The passenger mix on each ship varies widely from cruise to cruise, but you can expect an overall international crowd with about a third from North America. (There's usually an average of eight languages spoken at any given time on the line's sailings.) Ages generally range from the 20s to the 70s, with most in the 50-plus bracket, but a good 10 percent in each of the younger age brackets (20s, 30s, 40s) as well. Children are common during the summer season.

Do I have to dress up on a Celestyal Cruises cruise?

Celestyal requires a smart dress code in the dining rooms -- no shorts or flip-flops for men and smart dresses or nice pants and blouses for women. Bathing suits and shorts are never permitted in the restaurants, but many passengers take advantage of the daily lunch buffet on the pool deck to eat without having to change out of their swimwear.

For the Gala Night and the Captain's Cocktail, Celestyal does require formal dress -- a cocktail dress or something similar for ladies; jacket and tie for men. (The reality tends to be less formal than the code, but some passengers do go all-out.)

On Greek Night the line suggests that passengers wear blue and white, the colors of the Greek flag.

Is everything free on Celestyal Cruises cruises?

No, but the fare does include at least two shore excursions per cruise, gratuities and unlimited but select alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinks, per the included beverage package guidelines. Extra charges include Wi-Fi access, laundry and dry cleaning, room service and mini-bar items, and purchases from the onboard shop.

What are Celestyal Cruises’s most popular activities?

Celestyal cruises are generally short and port-intensive, so the most popular activities for cruisers are off the ship, exploring, dining out in local restaurants or hanging out at the beach. Onboard, hanging out by the pool and playing in the casino are both popular, and the international audience tends to enjoy the nighttime production shows and the cabaret.

Why go with Celestyal Cruises?

Short, reasonably priced, port-intensive itineraries

Best for: Travelers on a budget who enjoy a traditional cruise to excellent ports, mostly in the Aegean

Not for: Those who prefer longer shore stays or look for newer ships with rock climbing walls, water parks, etc.

Spectacular destination lineup, enjoyable ship experience

The focus was on visiting many antiquities sites which was the main reason we selected this cruise package. Celestyal provided an excellent experience at a good value. Not a new ship or a large ship (900 passengers... Read More

Great itinerary - good value!

We chose this 7 days cruise because of the ports - Cairo, Jerusalem/Bethlehem, Cyprus, Rhodes and Ephesus. We also chose it because of the great value for what we paid as the price included 3 excursions (Cairo,... Read More
