Review of Celestyal Olympia

MS Celestyal Olympia cruise ship (previously “Louis Olympia”) was built in 1982 as “Song of America” for RCCL (Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines). Celestyal Olympia is a luxurious passenger liner with an unique yacht–like 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.

History - construction & ownership

In April 2012, after operating as Thomson Destiny (under charter for Thomson Cruises), the ship was given a new name – Louis Olympia, operated by her owner 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.

Cruise itinerary program

Celestyal Olympia 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).
