A Celestyal Cruise is a journey deep into Greek cuisine, which is famed for its health benefits and its simplicity. They prepare every dish onboard with fresh, seasonal, local ingredients: onions and garlic, artichokes, tomatoes, eggplant, feta cheese and, of course, olives and olive oil, sweet and golden.
The chefs have spent years in Greek kitchens, and they love Greek food, everything from Yia Yia’s (grandmother’s) from-scratch recipes to gourmet dishes; their menus include dishes from the incredible spectrum of Greek gastronomy. At every meal, even at their endless breakfast buffet, you’ll find fresh Greek yogurt, a variety of freshly-baked breads and fresh coffee.
You’ll also find outstanding dishes from many of the world’s best-loved cuisines, and incredible wines. Wine has been produced and enjoyed in Greece for more than 4,000 years, and the Celestyal Cruise wine cellars are a delicious celebration of this rich history. Come lose yourself in a labyrinth of unforgettable tastes.
Your cruise rate includes three complete and wholly delicious meals every day. Breakfast is American or Continental, with a Greek touch, and includes fresh-baked rolls, muffins and Danish pastries.
At lunch and dinner, choose from dozens of appetizers, salads and soups, and traditional American, Continental and Greek dishes, all prepared for your delight, followed by a variety of decadent cakes, rich ice creams and fresh fruits.
The chefs want to take you on a journey deep into the heart of Greek gastronomy, with healthy Mediterranean meals cooked to please even the most demanding palate, with friends at your table. They also serve a delicious selection of international dishes, including American and Continental fare, as well as hot dogs, hamburgers, salads, and sandwiches.
There’s also great pizza for the little travelers, and for anyone who loves a crisp, handmade, oven-baked pizza, delivered to your cabin (room service charges apply).
Afternoon tea is served every day on all Celestyal ships (with the exception of those ships departing from Limassol, Cyprus).
The ship has a lot of onboard entertainment: bingo, dancing, exercise programs, games, music performances, sporting events and trivia contests – there’s always something to do for everyone on board, from kids to seniors. These activities are a great way to spend time with the people you love and to meet your fellow passengers.
Activities start bright and early, first thing in the morning, and continue all day and throughout the evening. There’s always something to do onboard, even if all you want to do is sit down with someone and play backgammon (there's also checkers, chess and other board games).
Visit the pool deck or any of the luxuriously appointed bars and lounges for a cold beer, a glass of wine, or a specialty cocktail or coffee. Try the Santorini whites, like assyrtiko, dry and fruity, and athiri, which is slightly aromatic, or the Peloponnesian wines, like white Moschofilero, with its aroma of roses and violets and spice, and Agiorghitiko, a dry aromatic red.
Enjoy a chilled glass of ouzo, the famous anise-flavored liqueur of Greece, or the bartenders’ spectacular Skinos cocktails, delicious one-of-a-kind concoctions with mastiha, a liqueur made from the mastic bushes of Chios. Bring a newspaper, or just relax and enjoy one of the live music performances. They're open all day until late into the evening. You’ll be a regular before you even finish your drink.

If you are physically challenged or your mobility is impaired, at the time of booking they kindly request that you provide them with full and detailed information in connection to your disability. If they believe there might be a safety issue for you or for your traveling companion, Celestyal Cruises reserves the right to advise that the passenger with health or mobility problems must have the assistance of a person who will be responsible for and take charge of all of this passenger’s needs and requirements. If you or your travelling companion requires personal, individual care or supervision, this must be organized by you or your traveling companion at your cost. No Celestyal Cruises ship or staff or crew member can provide specific care or supervision to anyone, nor can we provide any form of medical care for a physical or psychiatric condition.
They have a limited number of cabins suitable for people with disabilities or whose mobility is impaired, and not all areas of the ships are accessible to these passengers or equipped for them. Passengers travelling with a wheelchair should be aware that they may not be allowed to disembark in the ports when tender service is in use, for their own safety. Given these restrictions, bookings for such passengers are dependent upon the availability of suitable onboard lodging. If Celestyal Cruises deems it necessary, the assistance of a fully able person capable of catering to the passenger for the duration of the selected cruise may be requested to escort the passenger with mobility restrictions. All costs are to be supported by the passenger. Passengers in wheelchairs must bring their own wheelchairs, of normal size. Celestyal Cruises only carries wheelchairs for emergencies on its vessels.
If you have any specific dietary requirements, allergies or intolerances, please let them know in advance so they can make the necessary adjustments wherever possible.
For their own health and safety, infants under three months old are not permitted on board. If your baby is older than three months, please feel free to bring him or her along. If you require a baby cot, please advise the Customer Service Department at least one month prior to your cruise. They must advise you that they do not carry baby food on board, nor do they provide a babysitting service.
For your safety and comfort on board they suggest sports or flat deck shoes with low heels. These types of footwear will make it easier for you to walk in the outside decks and stairwells.
On the seven-day cruises they host Gala Night and the Captain’s Cocktail in honour of their passengers, and they ask that you attend in formal dress: a cocktail dress or something smart for the ladies, jacket and tie for the men.
