If you sell Greece and the Eastern Mediterranean, then you know Celestyal, and this cruise line has recently announced it’s preparing to welcome a new member to its fleet. Formerly owned by Holland America Line and more recently operating for P&O Australia, the newly-renamed Celestyal Journey will receive a $21 million top-to-bottom makeover and technological upgrade before it begins to welcome its 1,260 guests on board.

“While the global events of the past few years have placed our growth plans on pause, the positive industry outlook, along with strong bookings for the coming season, provides Celestyal with the opportunity to recommence the process of renewing our fleet with new vessels,” said Chris Theophilides, CEO, in a press statement.

According to Theophilides, the new Celestyal Journey will also feature large open decks, several new food and beverage options and ample public areas and staterooms. He mentioned the refurbishment will also include an increase in the number of premium and balcony staterooms. The press statement also added more details about the onboard experiences and itineraries were still in the works.

The cruise line offers 3-,4-,7- and 14-night itineraries around the Greek islands, Turkey and the Eastern Mediterranean. All voyages are all-inclusive, meaning they cover dining, drinks with meals, entertainment, daily onboard activities, port expenses and gratuities, plus they offer pre-bookable shore excursion discounts. They currently have two ships in their fleet, Celestyal Crystal and Celestial Olympia.
