Celestyal Olympia Review

Review of Celestyal Olympia

The 1982-built Celestyal Olympia cruise ship (fka “Louis Olympia”) was initially named “Song of America” and owned by RCCL-Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. MS Celestyal Olympia is a luxurious passenger liner with a unique yacht-like and advanced design. Stylish lounges, cozy dining venues, and open promenades make the experience of sailing with the Louis Cruises line (renamed in 2014 to Celestyal Cruises) really memorable.

The vessel (IMO number 7927984) is currently Malta-flagged (MMSI 229051000) and registered in Valletta. Before 2020, it was Cyprus-flagged (MMSI 209691000) and registered in Limassol.

History - construction and ownership

In April 2012, after operating as "Thomson Destiny" (under charter for Thomson Cruises UK), the ship was given a new name (Louis Olympia) by the shipowner Louis Cruises. During the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia, Louis ship Olympia served as a floating hotel. In 2014 Louis Cruises announced the launching of a new authentic Greek-experience cruise brand and currently, the two sister ships, Louis Cristal (Celestyal Crystal) and Louis Olympia, are branded Celestyal Cruises.

The debut of this vessel improved the company's identity as a specialist in Greek island and Turkey operations. Once the Thomson Destiny cruise liner, now it has been renovated (in 2012) and renamed to secure her travelers with a truly Hellenic experience, fitting with Greece's huge history and culture.

Decks and Cabins

Celestyal Olympia staterooms (724 total) include 9 Balcony, 298 Inside, 2 wheelchair-accessible. The ship's max passenger capacity is 1664. Of all cabins, 9 are Suite-grade accommodations, each with a private step-out balcony. The boat has 418 outside staterooms (including the 9 suites) and 298 Interior cabins. Because of the vessel's old design, rooms as sizes and types vary greatly. The total number of cabin categories is 15.

The boat has 10 decks, of which 9 are passenger-accessible and 7 with cabins.

Itineraries

Celestyal Olympia's itinerary program is based on three and four-day cruises to the Greek islands and Turkey. The ship currently operates on round-trip itineraries from Greece (Piraeus-Athens) and Turkey (Kusadasi-Ephesus).

In 2019, the liner started year-round operations for Celestyal Cruises, as opposed to the previous charter options. The company's Eastern Mediterranean Olympia ship deployment included two new itineraries - "Eclectic Aegean" and "Three Continents" (Holy Land and Turkey/Istanbul) - in addition to the Adriatic Sea cruises (7-day roundtrips from homeport Venice Italy) which are operated only seasonally (during winter).

In April 2021 Celestyal Cruises scheduled the Olympia ship to restart voyages in the Eastern Mediterranean starting with the new itinerary "Legendary Archipelago" in the period June 28 - August 30 (2021).  The 7-night roundtrip from Lavrion-Athens visited Thessaloniki, Mykonos, Santorini, Crete (Agios Nikolaos), Rhodes, Cyprus (Limassol). All-inclusive prices started from USD 1020 (EUR 860) per person with double occupancy. Following this Aegean mini-season, after August 30th the boat's itinerary program had to continue with the prescheduled 3-4-night (Lavrion roundtrip) itineraries "Iconic Aegean" and "Iconic Discovery".

Celestyal's new/exclusive cruise terminal at Port Lavrion (homeport) is just ~25 km (16 mi) from Athens Airport.

However, due to the Coronavirus crisis, the Celestyal ship Crystal was paused for two years (March 2020-2022).
