The ship is equipped with Internet access, so you can always get in touch with your loved ones or take care of any business needs. They offer tablets for rental for you to access the Internet. They also offer an onboard Wi-Fi services (satellite permitting) at a charge.

Nightlife

The magic of a night at a crowded taverna onboard – you will be unable to resist the call of the bouzouki, and you’ll soon find yourself on one of the dance floors performing the “sirtaki” from Zorba the Greek with 100 of your closest friends! If you’re a bit shy about your “moves,” there are Greek dancing classes during the day.

You’ll also find classical concerts, disco, karaoke, line dancing and talent shows. Each Celestyal Cruises ships has a complete nightclub onboard, with a high quality sound system and professional club lighting. Come have a drink while professional DJs spin the best contemporary sounds, both Greek and international.

For something more energetic, grab the Wii Sports.

Bingo & Bridge

It might just be your lucky night at one of our fun and sociable bingo games! All you need to do is purchase a bingo card and then wait for your numbers to be called. Or, if cards are more your game, we even have bridge playing areas where you’ll be able to while away the evening hours caught up in the excitement of a tournament. There’s no shortage of entertainment on board!

Dining

Olympus Restaurant

Your cruise rate includes three complete and wholly delicious meals every day. Breakfast is American or Continental, with a Greek touch, and includes fresh-baked rolls, muffins and Danish pastries.

At lunch and dinner, choose from dozens of appetizers, salads and soups, and traditional American, Continental and Greek dishes, all prepared for your delight, followed by a variety of decadent cakes, rich ice creams and fresh fruits.

The chefs want to take you on a journey deep into the heart of Greek gastronomy, with healthy Mediterranean meals cooked to please even the most demanding palate, with friends at your table. They also serve a delicious selection of international dishes, including American and Continental fare, as well as hot dogs, hamburgers, salads, and sandwiches.

There's also great pizza for the little travelers, and for anyone who loves a crisp, handmade, oven-baked pizza, delivered to your cabin (room service charges apply).

Almathea Restaurant

Head over to The Almathea Restaurant on Deck 8 for some fine dining.

Afternoon Tea

Afternoon tea is served every day on all Celestyal ships (with the exception of those ships departing from Limassol, Cyprus).

Enrichment

Greek culture and heritage is part of their DNA and it can be experienced through their on board educational workshops as well as through our exciting shore excursions.

With Celestyal Cruises, you will experience a journey to local eno-gastronomy, highlighting the culture of each destination by preparing refined dishes with local products and ingredients, paired with exquisite Greek wines.

Their insider’s view and the deep knowledge of the local regions, sets them apart from any other operator and provides passengers with unique cultural and gastronomic experiences.

Cooking Demos

Our chefs are not only creative in the kitchen, they’re real showmen as well! Join them for the on board cooking demonstrations and learn how to make the recipes you love from the buffet or a la carte menu. The ice demonstrations are pretty cool as well!

Language Lessons

Traveling to a different country you may want to pick up a few words of the local language, so we have arranged Greek lessons on board to immerse you into the country’s culture. You’ll learn everything from greeting people, ordering in a bar and telling people about yourself so that you can master basic conversations with the locals when you arrive on dry land.

Arts & Crafts

Our complimentary art & crafts sessions are a great way to unwind and unleash your creative side. We have a variety of interactive workshops listed in our Daily Program. So if you’ve ever fancied learning origami or you’re interested in making rope bracelets, this is your chance to nurture your skills.

Dancing Lessons

We love a good boogie when we’re onboard, but serious dancers should think about learning some traditional Greek dances. Down a shot of ouzo, grab your partner and try your hand at Sirtaki, Kalamatianos and Hasapiko. For something different, you might be interested in our Rock & Roll classes.

Health & Fitness

Spa

Complete your rejuvenation with a revitalizing spa treatment onboard the Crystal. Our professional team offers a variety of spa treatments and packages that will leave you feeling balanced and centered.

Services include several types of head and body massages, aromatherapy, cleansing facials, body exfoliation, hot stone treatments and mud wraps. We recommend booking an appointment in advance to claim your spot.

Beauty Salon

When you’re surrounded by the beauty and romance of the eastern Mediterranean it is understandable that you may want to look and feel glamorous. Our expert beauticians, hairdressers, manicurists and pedicurists sprinkle you with a touch of magic.

Pool

The gentle breeze of the open seas is the perfect location to top up your tan. Grab a sun lounger to soak up the sun’s rays before cooling yourself down with a dip in the pool.

Gym

The Crystal has a fully-equipped gym onboard so you can keep up with your fitness program during your cruise vacation. With cardiovascular equipment, weights and accessories available, you have everything you need to disconnect, destress and motivate yourself.

Outdoor Sports

Whether you have a regular sports activity or interested in trying something new, take advantage of the fresh sea air and join our team on the sports deck for a range of activities.
