A Good First Time Experience

Review for Celestyal Nefeli to Mediterranean

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

This was the first cruise experience for me and my mom. I am glad to say that we were happy the whole time during the tour and at the end of it. The main plus of this ship is the friendly staff which meets you right after the passport control (before even embarking the ship) and continues throughout the tour. This includes all of the staff on board -director, waiters, housekeepers, etc. Another ...

Too many anomalies

The Aegean islands cruise 28/7=04/08, is like a holiday camp at sea. Endless embarkations/departures every other day, with long announcements and lifeboat drill information and Excursion info. in at least 5 languages, lasting for 30 minutes or more. Do not expect a leisurely and quiet cruise. Experience the romantic Thalassa bar and watch the stars etc. NO, it closes at 2200 and the seat ...

This was my wife and I's first cruise. It was a wonderful introduction to cruise life, and we had generally a brilliant time. The ship was easy to get around and felt generally modern. Our cabin was wonderful, we were on the 7th floor surrounded by executive suites. So even though we had a very simple room, we were treated like the special people. Drinks service was wonderful, and we made ...

Old ship, refurbished but noisy

Myself and my family of three chose this cruise through the Aegean departing from Athens for its budget friendly qualities and its packed itinerary. It was our 4th cruise, but first on a medium sized ship. The first impression, as well as the overall one was pretty mixed. The service was absolutely incredible. The staff was prompt, always smiling and willing to help. My son lost his cell ...

Cultural saturation

I choose this cruise as one of the few still offering stop overs in Turkey as well as the opportunity of the Greek Islands and Greek experience. If you enjoy cultural immersion than this is the right cruise for you.  My thoughts however, are that this cruise experience is cultural immersion to the point of satire. Every night the show was almost identical excluding the costumes. The artists ...

Our Trafalgar tour director "made" our cruise!

PRE-CRUISE: Our trip included 4 days in Athens before departure with an included tour of the Acropolis and Parthenon. We felt that the paid tour of Sounion was not really worth the cost and we didn't go on the paid tour of Delphi because of the long bus ride required. We very much enjoyed exploring the City of Athens on our own. OK, the shopping was truly the fun part for me and I think my husband ...

Since our last cruise with Celestyal Cruises we where eger to step aboard again. We choose Celestyal Nefeli, Euphoric Aegean out of Lavrion. It looked like a great itinerary and I knew the ship from in her earlier days as Cunard Crown Jewel. We booked a balcony suite just after the docking wing at Portside. We had amazing stateroom attendants who where really nice for our daughter. The food aboard ...

OK Cruise, but not a great value

This cruise was part of an Insight Vacations package cruising 4 Greek islands and 2 destinations in Turkey. We boarded after touring Greece for 7 days and were happy to no longer have to live out of our suitcases! Both embarkation and disembarkation was extremely smooth. Throughout the week that we cruised, we lost and gained passengers at most ports. At the beginning of the cruise, the ship was ...

The most surprising part about our outside cabin was the large window. The cabin was specious with two single beds that could be made into a double.The water in the shower was always hot. The cabin attendant was excellent - friendly and efficient. The food was excellent! It was delicious with many choices of main meals, vegetables and salads.My husband is celiac and the staff was aware of his ...

The ship is very nice! It's a old ship (1992) but renovated in 2016. It's a small ship (only 400 cabins) that's a very good thing. Service is excellent, everybody on board smile. You can lunch on the terrace on three floors at the rear of the boat and have a great dinner in the aegan restaurant. The food is good. You can choose when you want eat, there's no turns like in others companies (maybe ...
