Celestyal, the Greek islands specialist cruise line, has announced that it will be adding a second ship to its fleet.
Celestyal Discovery will join the company’s fleet in March. It follows the recent acquisition of Celestyal Journey earlier this year. Both ships will now undergo a multimillion euro renovation ahead of the next year’s summer season.
Formerly sailing for Carnival Corporation’s German brand, AIDA, Celestyal Discovery has 633 staterooms, 62 of which feature balconies. Overall the ship can accommodate 1,266 guests at full capacity.
Chris Theophilides, CEO of Celestyal said: “Given strong market and business conditions, we are thrilled to have expedited the renewal of our fleet to welcome the Celestyal Discovery into the Celestyal family. Celestyal Discovery joins the Celestyal Journey to undergo an extensive refurbishment programme over the winter period, signifying further our intent to keep delighting our customers. As a confident challenger brand, our team is excited to continue to make waves across the industry next season, with a refreshed fleet, brand, network, and a renewed sense of direction.”
Celestyal Discovery will go on sale from December 11, 2023, taking over the outgoing Celestyal Olympia’s programme.
