MS Celestyal Journey (1994-built as "MS Ryndam", last refurbished by P&O AU as "Pacific Aria" in 2018, last refurbishment by HAL in 2015, last refurbishment by Celestyal in 2023) is a cruise ship operated by Louis Group/Celestyal Cruises with fleetmates Celestyal Olympia (1982) and Celestyal Crystal (1980).

Pacific Aria was operated by P&O Australia but originally (in the period 1994-2015), the vessel was launched and operated under the name "MS Ryndam" as part of the HAL-Holland America Line's fleet. In May 2014, Carnival Corporation (HAL's parent company/Ryndam's shipowner) announced that the boat will be transferred in 2015 to P&O Australia after a scheduled refurbishment to tailor the vessel for the Australia/New Zealand market. In April 2021, Pacific Aria was planned to leave P&O Australia (last cruise April 9, 2021 / Melbourne-Fremantle-Singapore) and join the fleet of CMV UK as "Ida Pfeiffer". However, CMV filed for bankruptcy in July 2020. In the period 2020-2023, the ship (named Aegean Goddess) was owned by SeaJets Ferries (Greece) and for 3 years remained out of service (in cold layup) being docked in Port Lavrio (Attica Greece).

Pacific Aria/Celestyal Journey cruise ship deck plan shows a total of 630 staterooms for 1260 passengers (max capacity is 1512) served by 560 crew-staff. The boat has 12 decks (9 passenger-accessible, 5 with cabins), 15 food and drink venues (restaurants, lounges, bars), 2 swimming pools (one with a retractable glass roof, one for adults), 2 Jacuzzis (outdoor spa pools), 8 elevators. The new interior design (transforming MS Ryndam into Pacific Aria) was a project of Tillberg Design Studio (Sweden).

Note: On the Pacific Aria ship, self-service launderettes (passenger use laundry/ironing facilities) are located on decks: 5 and 9. Laundry services on board are not complimentary /included in the fares. Smoking on the P&O Aria ship is permitted only at designated outdoor public areas.

 

The "Ryndam to Pacific Aria" ship transformation was done by the Swedish company "Tillberg Design" during a scheduled drydock refurbishment in Sydney NSW. Unique features of the new ship are the 3 dining rooms with different cuisine choices (Italian, Asian and the traditional for HAL "Waterfront Restaurant"), boutique winery with premium Australian wines, indoor cinema, cookery school, new Salt Grill Bar (for Luke Mangan cocktails), large indoor-outdoor seating buffet restaurant, large main pool area (covered with sliding roof) and the new P&OEdge facility (active sport activities program).

Pacific Aria deck plan changes 2018 refurbishment review

Ship's 12-day drydock 2018 refurbishment (August 3-15, done in Singapore) resulted in the following changes:

  • The Dome (Deck 12 forward) was redecorated with a new nautical theme (dark blue and white) and redesigned with new soft lighting and classy drapes. By day, the Dome is the right place for board games, dance classes, trivia and relax on the lounges. In the evening it transforms into a chic dance spot.
  • Elemis Spa (Deck 11 forward) was enhanced and upgraded with Barber Shop. The new venue features chic decor (gold-framed mirrors, leather swivel chairs, premium curtains) and offers professional grooming services (hot towel shaves, beard trimming, and styling).
  • All Penthouse, Suite and balcony staterooms received new carpets and outdoor furniture.
  • Fleet's new Southern Cross-themed livery was painted on the hull.

In total, on the ship were replaced with new 1000 pieces of furniture, 6000 m of fabrics, 10000+ m2 of carpets. New artworks and contemporary wallpapers were placed in public spaces.
