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 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), 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).

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).

Cabins

Celestyal Olympia has a total number of 724 cabins (of which 9 Balcony, 298 Inside, 2 wheelchair-accessible). The ship accommodates a maximum of 1,664 travelers. Of all Celestyal Olympia cabins, 9 are Suite-grade accommodations each with a private balcony. The ship has a total of 418 oceanview 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.
