The signature Celestyal experience starts in the very heart of our cruise ships – the dining rooms and lounges. Here you can indulge in rich culinary delights cooked from scratch by our talented chefs and savor fresh Mediterranean ingredients. There’s no better feeling than sitting back with a crisp glass of wine and delighting in an array of quality, authentic local food.
Your cruise package includes three wholesome meals as well as afternoon tea every day. Start your morning with our freshly-baked bread and pastries, then browse the buffet or à la carte menu for lunch and dinner. When the sun’s shining brightly, there’s even casual al fresco dining on our decks as well as room service, so you can choose exactly how and when you want to eat.
That’s what makes your Celestyal Cruise vacation so special – service from the heart, lovingly-made food, memorable mealtimes and comfortable lounges to relax with a drink.
Your cruise rate includes three complete and wholly delicious meals every day. Breakfast is American or Continental, with a Greek touch, and includes fresh-baked rolls, muffins and Danish pastries.
At lunch and dinner, choose from dozens of appetizers, salads and soups, and traditional American, Continental and Greek dishes, all prepared for your delight, followed by a variety of decadent cakes, rich ice creams and fresh fruits.
The chefs want to take you on a journey deep into the heart of Greek gastronomy, with healthy Mediterranean meals cooked to please even the most demanding palate, with friends at your table. They also serve a delicious selection of international dishes, including American and Continental fare, as well as hot dogs, hamburgers, salads, and sandwiches.
There's also great pizza for the little travelers, and for anyone who loves a crisp, handmade, oven-baked pizza, delivered to your cabin (room service charges apply).
For more casual dining, try the Leda Buffet.
The ship has a lot of onboard entertainment: bingo, dancing, exercise programs, games, music performances, sporting events and trivia contests – there’s always something to do for everyone on board, from kids to seniors. These activities are a great way to spend time with the people you love and to meet your fellow passengers.
Activities start bright and early, first thing in the morning, and continue all day and throughout the evening. There’s always something to do onboard, even if all you want to do is sit down with someone and play backgammon (there's also checkers, chess and other board games).
Visit the pool deck or any of the luxuriously appointed bars and lounges for a cold beer, a glass of wine, or a specialty cocktail or coffee. Try the Santorini whites, like assyrtiko, dry and fruity, and athiri, which is slightly aromatic, or the Peloponnesian wines, like white Moschofilero, with its aroma of roses and violets and spice, and Agiorghitiko, a dry aromatic red.
Enjoy a chilled glass of ouzo, the famous anise-flavored liqueur of Greece, or the bartenders’ spectacular Skinos cocktails, delicious one-of-a-kind concoctions with mastiha, a liqueur made from the mastic bushes of Chios. Bring a newspaper, or just relax and enjoy one of the live music performances. They're open all day until late into the evening. You’ll be a regular before you even finish your drink.
Like games of chance? Adrenaline rushes? Unbridled excitement? Join other guests in the comfortable casino and try your luck. There's games for every taste.

If you are physically challenged or your mobility is impaired, at the time of booking they kindly request that you provide them with full and detailed information in connection to your disability. If they believe there might be a safety issue for you or for your traveling companion, Celestyal Cruises reserves the right to advise that the passenger with health or mobility problems must have the assistance of a person who will be responsible for and take charge of all of this passenger’s needs and requirements. If you or your travelling companion requires personal, individual care or supervision, this must be organized by you or your traveling companion at your cost. No Celestyal Cruises ship or staff or crew member can provide specific care or supervision to anyone, nor can we provide any form of medical care for a physical or psychiatric condition.
They have a limited number of cabins suitable for people with disabilities or whose mobility is impaired, and not all areas of the ships are accessible to these passengers or equipped for them. Passengers travelling with a wheelchair should be aware that they may not be allowed to disembark in the ports when tender service is in use, for their own safety. Given these restrictions, bookings for such passengers are dependent upon the availability of suitable onboard lodging. If Celestyal Cruises deems it necessary, the assistance of a fully able person capable of catering to the passenger for the duration of the selected cruise may be requested to escort the passenger with mobility restrictions. All costs are to be supported by the passenger. Passengers in wheelchairs must bring their own wheelchairs, of normal size. Celestyal Cruises only carries wheelchairs for emergencies on its vessels.
If you have any specific dietary requirements, allergies or intolerances, please let them know in advance so they can make the necessary adjustments wherever possible.
For their own health and safety, infants under three months old are not permitted on board. If your baby is older than three months, please feel free to bring him or her along. If you require a baby cot, please advise the Customer Service Department at least one month prior to your cruise. They must advise you that they do not carry baby food on board, nor do they provide a babysitting service.
For your safety and comfort on board they suggest sports or flat deck shoes with low heels. These types of footwear will make it easier for you to walk in the outside decks and stairwells.
