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.

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.

Cruise itinerary program

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).

Celestyal Olympia cruise ship

In 2019, the liner started year-round operations for Celestyal Cruises, as opposed to the previous charter options. 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).

Following the Coronavirus crisis, 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 visits 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 continued 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. 

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.

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

With three eating outlets to choose from, cruisers might enjoy the sumptuous Greek and Mediterranean kitchen onboard as well as twenty-four-hour room service. Aegean Restaurant is the main dining room onboard Celestyal Olympia. It is complimentary, features Greek cuisine specialties, and also has a dinner a la carte menu. The MDR restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Leda Casual Dining is the buffet-style venue for alfresco dining with outdoor seating area.
