Celestyal Journey Review

Review of Celestyal Journey

The 1994-built (as "MS Ryndam", fka "Aegean Goddess") cruise ship Celestyal Journey between 1994-2015 was named "MS Ryndam" (operated by HAL-Holland America Line) and in 2015-2020 was named "Pacific Aria" (operated by P&O Australia). The sisterships (by design) are the former HAL boats MS Maasdam/CFC Renaissance, MS Veendam/Aegean Majesty and MS Statendam/Vasco da Gama Nicko.

While operated by P&O Australia, the vessel (IMO number 8919269) was UK-flagged (MMSI 235113823) and registered in London. The new shipowner (Aegean Goddess Inc, subsidiary of Eaglepower Shipping Ltd/Seajets Ferries Greece) renamed it "Aegean Goddess" and reflagged it to Bermuda (MMSI 310811000). For the management was contracted Optimum Ship Services Ltd (2014-founded, Piraeus-based company part of Scorpio Group). Holland America Line owned and operated the boat via its subsidiary HAL Nederland NV (1994-founded).

History - construction and ownership

On August 12, 2022, was announced that in 2023 (May) will be inaugurated the new cruise brand "Victoria Cruise Lines" (website victoria.cruises) having a two-ship fleet - the sisterships Aegean Goddess (VICTORIA MAJESTIC) and Aegean Majesty (VICTORIA AMAZING).

  • The Paralimni Cyprus-based Victoria Cruise Lines company specializes in residential cruise shipping and is led by Olavs Zvinelis (CEO). The adults-only, all-inclusive travel brand provides a residential travel experience by allowing stateroom rentals for long-term occupancy (minimum 6 months).
  • Victoria Majestic was scheduled to depart from PortMiami (Florida USA) on February 1, 2023.
  • Victoria Amazing was scheduled to depart from Livorno (Italy), on April 1, 2023.
  • Victoria Cruises' cabin rates start at USD 8000 (inside cabin), US$10000 (oceanview), US$16000 (balcony). Travel and rental options are offered only to adults (18-yo or older).
  • All interior cabins on both ships were to be fitted with a 100-cm/40-inch LCD monitor for real-time sea views and sounds provided by 10x HD cameras.

For 3 years (2020-2023) Aegean Goddess was out of service (in cold layup) and remained docked in Port Lavrio (Attica Greece).

NEWS: In late-February 2023 was announced that Aegean Goddess was sold to/acquired by Celestyal Cruises and renamed "Celestyal Journey". Before entering service for Celestyal, the boat was scheduled for an extensive (EUR 20 million/~USD 21,2 M) drydock refit and refurbishment.

In April 2021, Pacific Aria was planned to leave P&O Cruises Australia, with the last voyage scheduled for April 9, 2021 (departing from Melbourne to Singapore via Fremantle). The last voyage was bookable as short-break (Melbourne-Fremantle), Asia Explorer (Fremantle-Singapore) and "full farewell" (18-night B2B cruise Melbourne-Fremantle-Singapore). In February 2021, P&O Australia's fleet was also planned to leave Pacific Dawn (now Ambassador Ambience).

In November 2019, for both vessels were signed presale agreements with CMV-Cruise and Maritime Voyages. Pacific Aria was to be renamed to "CMV Ida Pfeiffer", Pacific Dawn - to "CMV Amy Johnson". Following the CMV's collapse (filed for bankruptcy in July 2020), Carnival Corporation reopened both ships for sale. Pacific Dawn was sold to Ocean Builders to become their "Crypto Cruise Ship" (residential ship). Pacific Aria was sold in mid-October (the buyer was not revealed) and left the fleet. With P&O Australia (November 2015 through March 2020), the 26-year-old Pacific Aria sailed 450,000+ NM (~520K mi / ~835K km).

Celestyal Journey cruise ship (MS Ryndam/Pacific Aria)

SEAJETS Greece (1989-founded) is a Cyprus-based shipping company that specializes in passenger and cargo ferry services exclusively in the Eastern Mediterranean (Aegean Sea). Seajets' fleet includes mainly fast-ferries (14x high-speed catamarans, max capacity 2100 passengers + 600 cars) plus 3x conventional Ro-Pax vessels (max capacity 1300 passengers + 400 cars). Seajets operates from homeports Piraeus-Athens, Lavrion and Crete (Heraklion and Rethymno) interconnecting 26 Cyclades Islands (Crete including) with 260 connections.

The 1270-passenger ship was launched and operated as "MS Ryndam" by Holland America Line between 1994 and 2015. In May 2014, Carnival Corporation (shipowner for both brands P&O AU and HAL) announced that the liner will be transferred to P&O Australia’s fleet in 2015, following a drydock refurbishment to tailor Ryndam for the Australia-New Zealand source market.

The 10-day "Bounty Discovery" itinerary (April, June, July, September) was to Norfolk Island, Lifou, Noumea, Port Vila, Mystery Island.

Celestyal Journey Wiki

The Fincantieri Monfalcone-built ship Pacific Aria operated under the name "MS Ryndam" (for Holland America Line) since 1994. In 2015, the vessel was refurbished and transferred to P&O Australia, renamed "Pacific Aria" and homeported in Brisbane Queensland. In June 2017, P&O AU's fleet joined Pacific Explorer (fka Dawn Princess).

By design, the liner is sistership to Vasco da Gama (fka Pacific Eden) and to HAL's boats Maasdam/CFC Renaissance and Veendam/Aegean Majesty. Pacific Aria started operations in November 2015, right after the renaming ceremony in Sydney NSW. The christening ceremony was dual (also including the Pacific Eden ship) and held at Fort Denison (Sydney Harbour) on November 25, 2015. Aria's godmother is Mrs Jessica Mauboy (singer). Part of the dual naming celebrations were also the P&O Australia ships Pacific Pearl (CMV Columbus), Pacific Jewel (2020-scrapped as "MS Karnika") and Pacific Dawn (Ambassador Ambience). On each of the five ships, there were musical parties with live performances featuring Jessica Mauboy (on Aria), The Veronicas (on Eden), Samantha Jade (on Pearl), Justice Crew (on Jewel) and Stan Walker (on Dawn).

Pacific Aria "cruise to nowhere" deals are on specially themed Australian roundtrip voyages (without additional ports of call along the route). These short breaks are usually themed "Food and Wine", "Music" (various styles/performers), "Comedy", "Sports". P&O Australia "cruises to nowhere" prices are also inclusive of all special activities and themed entertainment on the ship, including classes and workshops, lectures, presentations, guest performances, theme parties.

The inaugural cruise (Mayden Voyage for P&O AU) was on November 25 (2-days Sydney to Brisbane). Pacific Aria was the first cruise ship to call on Fraser Island - followed by the fleetmate Pacific Eden. The island's location is along Queensland's southern coast- some 200 km (120 mi) north of Brisbane. This is a World Heritage-listed location and also the largest sand island in the world (length 120 km (75 mi), width 24 km (15 mi). The ship's scheduled visit to Fraser Island Queensland was on April 3, 2016 (4-day Brisbane round-trip cruise itinerary). The Great Sandy Strait is a 70 km (~ 43 mi) sand passage estuary (tidal strait consisting of bays and sand flats) that separates mainland Queensland from Fraser Island. On April 3, at high tide Pacific Aria entered and navigated through the strait, assisted by an experienced local pilot (a former Captain). At about 7 am the ship anchored off the Kingfisher Bay Resort. Among the special P&O Australia shore excursion deals on Fraser Island is the Kingfisher Bay Resort, offering 4WD tours along the island's beaches and some 1500 km (930 mi) of tracks.

Aria was also the 2nd liner (after Pacific Jewel) to visit the privately-owned Conflict Islands (Papua New Guinea) - inaugural visit on August 5, 2016. This is a group of all 21 islands surrounding a blue lagoon with a pristine reef system. This makes the new destination one of the perfect ones for snorkelling and diving excursions in the South Pacific Ocean.

Pacific Aria refurbishment 2018 review

The ship's 12-day drydock refurbishment in 2018 (August 3-15, done in Singapore) resulted in the following deckplan 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.
