A delightful cruise in the end but a questionable beginning

Review for a Europe - Greek Isles Cruise on Celestyal Journey

Lucky travelers from Oz
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

This review is primarily about our cruise sailing on the Journey, however it also describes our experience with Celestyal Cruises and sets the scene prior to sailing with them. We had not heard about Celestyal Cruises (CC) before and were enticed by a reasonably priced 14 night itinerary with great inclusions (premium drink package, gratuities and four excursions). We booked 16 months prior to ...

Review for a Europe - Greek Isles Cruise on Celestyal Journey

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

Just got back from a 2 week trip. Overall experience was great. Few bad points worth mentioning but nothing that would change our minds to do another trip with this company. The bad: the excursion desk doesn’t have themselves together. We got an excursion ticket they had a different title than what we paid for. Once on the bus we were told the itinerary. Half the bus was ready to riot as ...

What did they spend 20+ million on??

Review for a Europe - Greek Isles Cruise on Celestyal Journey

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

The itinerary was excellent. Food very good. Service good exception reception staff. Very rude. I guess tired of hearing the passengers complaining. JD & his staff at the Martini Bar were great. The Pink Moon staff (Pablo, Amanda & especially Nelson & Amaury) were awesome. But so much was wrong. Not sure what they spent 20+ million on to refurbish this ship. I changed cabins 4 times because the ...

A much better Journey than expected!

Review for a Europe - Greek Isles Cruise on Celestyal Journey

Granny Liz
10+ Cruises • Age 50s

We wanted to experience some Greek islands which we haven't visited before and with the late night stays in Santorini and Mykonos we went with Celestyal as the local experts. We had a week on Crete first before joining the ship (I didn't know you could join the cruise at ports other than Piraeus). The only problem here is that there is no one shore side to assist with your luggage until you are ...

Staff Made it Happen!

Review for a Europe - Greek Isles Cruise on Celestyal Journey

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We actually had a great time on this cruise, although some of the reviews are pretty accurate with regard to the plumbing and mechanical challenges the boat had with hot water, water pressure, air, TV, water leaks, toilet, etc. But, it was a bit of a shakedown cruise for the company and I’m sure they will work through all of that if they haven’t already. When we arrived the embarkation process ...

Shame about the water in the cabin

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We had been on the Celestyal Crystal in 2019, and decided to repeat it as the itinerary was much better and we love Greece. Anyway, we had a deck 10 junior suite with balcony. embarkation was quick and easy, the cabin was fine, we thought. We got up on Sunday to find no hot water, cured by maintenance after 30 mins! Monday and Tuesday mornings it was barely lukewarm. Wednesday no hot water at ...

Wonderful Time visiting Greece Islands

Review for a Europe - Greek Isles Cruise on Celestyal Journey

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We chose Celestyal Cruise Line mainly for its itinerary. This cruise line had the best options for Greek Islands as well as spent the most amount of time at the ports we wanted most (Santorini and Mykonos). We were in an SG suite and the room was much nicer than I anticipated, with ample room for my family of three. Boarding for this cruise line was unlike any I have ever been on. Our ...

Not a quality cruise line

Review for a Greece Cruise on Celestyal Journey

Cruisemania55
6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

I realized the ship when booking was older but had been under renovation. However the food was very limited and the same every night on the breakfast and dinner buffet with limited hours. If you are looking for a happy hr pool side snack Buffett or late night it does not exist. Our room had wet carpet that I talked to them about 6 times but nothing ever was fixed or followed up on. The TVs and ...

Glorified Ferry. Not a luxury cruise

Review for a Europe - Greek Isles Cruise on Celestyal Journey

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

This cruise seemed a good price and went to places we wanted to visit. I went with my very active/mobile mum and we were looking forward to a gala evening, the evening entertainment and the fine dining options. We purchased a premium drinks package and a room on level 4 which looked lovely on the photos. This was the ships maiden voyage after a €20M refit Our disappointment started ...

Review for a Greece Cruise on Celestyal Journey

10+ Cruises • Age 40s

We choose this cruise specifically for the itinerary. The over nights in Mykonos and Santorini were the deciding factor. I have been on over 30 cruises with multiple cruise line and I can honestly say this ship was not ready for passengers. We were on the maiden voyage of the Journey and found out that the crew arrived the same morning as the passengers. The ship was not cleaned, it was in fact ...
