Celestyal Cruises plans some fleet changes as Celestyal Odyssey moves out at the end of October. The ship will be replaced by Gemini, which according to reports, will change her name to Celestyal Nefeli.

Odyssey came to the fleet of Celestyal on a 3-year charter agreement earlier in 2015, having most recently operated for Semester at Sea. Originally, the vessel was built in 2001 as Olympia Explorer.

Olympia Explorer was one of the two sister ships delivered to Royal Olympic Cruises in early 2000s. The other vessel is currently the 840-guest Chinese Taishan, sailing for Bohai Ferry in China.

Gemini will be delivered to Celestyal Cruises in early 2016. She is slightly bigger and can accommodate 1,074 passengers.
