Experience the East Mediterranean or Greek Islands aboard a cruise ship that will make your experience second to none. Celestyal Crystal, one of the two intimate-sized ocean liners of Celestyal Cruises, will transport you to these destinations as you enjoy all-inclusive drinks, meals, and complimentary shore excursions. Where else can you find fine Mediterranean cuisine, spectacular onboard programming, and all the comforts and luxuries of home? Only onboard a Celestyal Crystal cruise!

The onboard programming offered aboard Celestyal Crystal includes some of the most in-demand onboard activities, like swimming pools, games, and more. Treat yourself to a pampering treatment in the onboard spa or make your cruise extra-glamorous with a treatment in the salon (or both!). The onboard fitness center is perfect for staying in shape while away, but if you prefer to stay active in a less traditional manner, you can get your blood pumping with an exciting Greek dance lesson (so good you may find yourself doing the Hasapiko all the way home). One unique programming offered onboard Celestyal Cruises is arts and crafts. Normally offered as a kids-only activity onboard cruises, adults can also participate and learn new artistic skills, such as learning to fold origami or bracelet-making. Among language lessons, demonstrations, and even bingo and bridge tournaments, you will discover all sorts of fun and games (classic and contemporary) that are certain to keep you entertained as you explore the highlights of the region.

Dining onboard Celestyal Crystal is so authentic and delicious that it might make you feel like you’re sharing a homemade dinner with your family. Celestyal Crystal makes mealtime memorable with delightful dishes that expert chefs prepare using farm-fresh Mediterranean ingredients. With the cruise line’s all-inclusive feature, you will get to enjoy three complimentary meals per day in the main restaurant, including afternoon tea. Depending on the weather during your cruise, you may be able to enjoy al-fresco dining (weather permitting), as well as the Aura Grill or Leda buffet, both of which offer quick and easy choices!

The accommodations onboard Celestyal Crystal are a cut above those you’ll find on cruises going to the East Mediterranean or Greek Islands. Offering a mixture of interior and outside staterooms as well as suites, you’re certain to find the type of accommodation that fits your needs and budgets. Suites feature the most space, as well as an upgraded bathroom with a tub (in select categories). Grand Suites are the most premium type of accommodation onboard Celestyal Crystal and feature the most living space, as well as a private whirlpool hot tub on the balcony! Outside oceanview staterooms provide a spectacular view through porthole or picture windows, and interior staterooms are cozy and comfortable to relax and unwind after an exciting day. Regardless of what kind of stateroom you book, you will benefit from personal steward service and daily housekeeping, so there’s always somebody available to help you and fulfill any requests you may have. When traveling with children, keep an eye out for towel-animals in your stateroom – a delightful touch that can easily make your cruise.

All staterooms on board Celestyal Crystal feature luxurious cotton bed linens with duvet, terry bathrobes and slippers, 24-hour room service, "About Rose" toiletries (sophisticated luxury soaps and fine toiletries), a welcome fruit basket at embarkation, fresh-cut flowers, tote bag, complimentary use of umbrella and binoculars, complimentary shoe-shine service, turndown treats, and a daily news bulletin.

Guests staying in any of the suites on board Celestyal Crystal also benefit from English butler service, afternoon tea service in suite, one free bag of laundry service per suite (once every seven days), and more.

Ship Highlights

All-Inclusive
As mentioned above, Celestyal Crystal cruises are all-inclusive. This means that you won’t need to pay any extra for meals, gratuities, drinks, or select shore excursions (Celestyal Crystal won Best for Shore Excursions in Cruise Critic’s 2018 Cruisers’ Choice Awards!). This is a perfect ship for budget-minded travelers who want to experience the “big ship” feel without dishing out more money for all the “extras.”

Overnight Ports
Though Celestyal Crystal offers a satisfying range of onboard entertainment, the true highlight is the complimentary shore excursions. Unlike other cruise ships, Celestyal Crystal primarily sails the Greek Islands, with many of its itineraries including overnight stops in port. This gives you the opportunity to truly explore the destinations you’re visiting, without the anxiety of having to rush back to the ship. Another great feature of overnight stops is that you will be able to explore while other travelers have already left, enabling you to truly acquaint yourself with the region, minus the crowds.

Fine Cuisine
Onboard Celestyal Crystal, dining is simplified, yet exquisite. You will discover freshly-prepared Mediterranean dishes in the two main dining rooms (Olympus and Amalthia), as well as two casual buffets that offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner, focusing more on traditional American-foods rather than flavors of the region. A small pop-up grill on the pool deck provides made-to-order breakfast favorites such as eggs and waffles. Room service is also available for times when you would prefer to dine in the privacy of your stateroom. However, room service is not part of Celestyal Crystal’s all-inclusive feature and you will incur an additional charge for ordering off this menu.
