Why cruise on this ship?

Named for the ancient sanctuary that was the birthplace of the Olympic Games, and for the mother of Alexander the Great, there’s no better way to see our iconic Aegean destinations than on the Celestyal Olympia.

Dining

The signature Celestyal experience starts in the very heart of our cruise ships – the dining rooms and lounges. Here you can indulge in rich culinary delights cooked from scratch by our talented chefs and savor fresh Mediterranean ingredients. There’s no better feeling than sitting back with a crisp glass of wine and delighting in an array of quality, authentic local food.

Your cruise package includes three wholesome meals as well as afternoon tea every day. Start your morning with our freshly-baked bread and pastries, then browse the buffet or à la carte menu for lunch and dinner. When the sun’s shining brightly, there’s even casual al fresco dining on our decks as well as room service, so you can choose exactly how and when you want to eat.

That’s what makes your Celestyal Cruise vacation so special – service from the heart, lovingly-made food, memorable mealtimes and comfortable lounges to relax with a drink.

Aegean Restaurant

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).

Entertaining

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).

Bars & Lounges

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.
