Celestyal Expands Fleet


Celestyal Cruises has introduced a new ship to its fleet, the Celestyal Nefeli, a 400-cabin vessel that will replace the Celestyal Odyssey in the Eastern Mediterranean.

Named for the Greek goddess of hospitality, the Celestyal Nefeli will sail Celestyal’s popular itineraries for the next two years, with embarkation from Turkey.

According to officials, like its fleet mates, Celestyal Crystal and Celestyal Olympia, Nefeli is the perfect size for docking in the smaller, unique harbours throughout the Eastern Mediterranean.
Since 2014, Celestyal has added 15 new destinations, which include Milos, Ios, Kos, Samos, Symi, Chios, Cesme and Syros.

In 2016, Celestyal will also increase the number of its bespoke-themed events, providing passengers with the best of Greek culture, gastronomy, history and wine.

The Celestyal Nefeli can accommodate 1,074 passengers and features 400 cabins (277 outside and 123 inside), 12 are executive suites (most with private balconies) and 31 are junior suites.
