dining

A Celestyal Cruise is a journey deep into Greek cuisine, which is famed for its health benefits and its simplicity. They prepare every dish onboard with fresh, seasonal, local ingredients: onions and garlic, artichokes, tomatoes, eggplant, feta cheese and, of course, olives and olive oil, sweet and golden.

The chefs have spent years in Greek kitchens, and they love Greek food, everything from Yia Yia’s (grandmother’s) from-scratch recipes to gourmet dishes; their menus include dishes from the incredible spectrum of Greek gastronomy. At every meal, even at their endless breakfast buffet, you’ll find fresh Greek yogurt, a variety of freshly-baked breads and fresh coffee.

You’ll also find outstanding dishes from many of the world’s best-loved cuisines, and incredible wines. Wine has been produced and enjoyed in Greece for more than 4,000 years, and the Celestyal Cruise wine cellars are a delicious celebration of this rich history. Come lose yourself in a labyrinth of unforgettable tastes.

entertainment

The ship has a lot of onboard entertainment: bingo, dancing, exercise programs, games, music performances, sporting events and trivia contests – there’s always something to do for everyone on board, from kids to seniors. These activities are a great way to spend time with the people you love and to meet your fellow passengers.

Activities start bright and early, first thing in the morning, and continue all day and throughout the evening. There’s always something to do onboard, even if all you want to do is sit down with someone and play backgammon (there's also checkers, chess and other board games).
