Review for Celestyal Crystal to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

A Greece based cruise company that specializes on cruising the Eastern Mediterranean and Greece islands. Their ship is old, actually 42 years old, but still in good condition. It is small compared to all the other companies ships. If you look up the history of this ship, you might decide to go with another company. My advice is don’t, cause we thoroughly enjoyed this trip. This was a back to back ...

An absolute pleasure

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

This was our first experience of sea cruising and it was an absolute pleasure. Everything aboard the Celestyal Crystal was well-organised and the ship had a lovely atmosphere. She was very attractively furnished in all the public areas that we saw and our cabin was beautiful. The various lounges and open air decks made for comfortable opportunities from which to view surrounding scenery. All the ...

We chose Celestryal for the 3rd time as we have had 2 great cruises in the past. We love the Crystal she is a small compact ship, (yes, ship, she doesn't look like a floating warehouse with windows!) , with a fantastic crew. We wanted to relax and enjoy ourselves and that's just what happened. The first week there were only 400 passengers on board, capacity is 1200, so we had a very quiet, well ...

This cruise visits all the most sought-after islands in 7 days. I could not believe how efficient they were. We left our hotel in central Athens at 12 noon and were on the ship by 12:45. We had booked a Junior Balcony suite and were upgraded to a full Balcony Suite. Large living area, separate bedroom and a very large balcony. 2 excursions were included, and we booked 4 others. The ship is not ...

Second cruise for me, so not a lot of experience. Went to visit the Greek islands with the Celestyal Crystal, start and end in Piraeus. We were 5 people in two cabins (junior suites with balcony), from 17 to 68 years old. All are happy with the experience: GOOD - Organization, everything was really smooth and professionally driven - Enterntainment, excellent. Special mention to the ...

My wife (63) and I (73) are Dutch and frequent cruisers. We have sailed with MSC, Celebrity, HAL, Aida and TUI (Mein Schiff). The Celestyal Chrystal came across our path by chance. Cruise, flight, transfers, full board, drinks, tips and 2 excursions were included for a very attractive price. It was a small ship of 162 m in length. We doubted whether it would not be too busy with a maximum of 1200 ...

The positives - Food and wait staff very good, they really made the cruise - Itinerary was good, longer in some ports would be better and could be managed better than what they did - Embarkation was a breeze as was de-embarkation, very seamless process - Good size suite, very spacious - entertainment was good The negatives - Cruise director was out of her depth, little ...

Couldn't fault this cruise - great value for money

I couldn’t fault this cruise line and I have cruised on Viking, RC, NCL and Celebrity lines in the past. Reading other reviews I was expecting the ship to be worn and tired and found this not to be the case. Whilst it doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of some of the larger ships, being a smaller ship made it a much more personal trip and very good value for money. It was spotlessly ...

We recently completed a 7 day cruise on the Crystal. We travel as a group of friends and one of our fellow travelers is a travel professional who puts together our trips which is how we were introduced to Celestyal. I had some reservations prior after reading the reviews but all I can say is either Celestyal listened and made changes or maybe things are just getting back to normal post pandemic. ...

We choose this cruise because our travel agent suggested it to my husband and I (74 and 65). We booked right before Covid hit and May 14, 2022 we finally were able to go. It was great all and all. The ship was great and most of the workers were wonderful! We especially enjoyed the smaller ship experience and the ports we visited in Greece and Turkey. Our cabin was spotless: ALWAYS. Cabin ...
