Celestyal unveils fleet refresh with second new ship Celestyal Discovery for March 2024

The cruise company Celestyal has confirmed the acquisition of a second new vessel. Celestyal Discovery follows the recent arrival of Celestyal Journey, and is part of a fleet refresh and further commitment to significant investment.

Celestyal Discovery will now join her fleet mate in Athens, where they will both undergo multimillion-euro winter refurbishment programmes ahead of the new season, which commences in March 2024.

Built in 2003 for Carnival Corporation, she has been sailing under the AIDA Cruise brand throughout her career to date.

Celestyal Discovery is a mid-sized vessel, allowing Celestyal to continue offering its blend of destinations and more secluded ports, which characterize the company’s itineraries. She offers 633 staterooms, 62 of which feature balconies, in total accommodating 1,266 guests.

Cruises on Celestyal’s newest ship will be on sale from 11 December 2023, taking over Celestyal Olympia’s 2024 programme.

Guests currently holding reservations on Celestyal Olympia will be contacted by Celestyal after this date and reaccommodated on sailings on the newly refurbished Celestyal Discovery.

Celestyal Discovery will have an Amphitheatre with conference and event space, lounges, the Grillseekers speciality restaurant, a Sozo wellness retreat, a pool deck, the Greek Deli, and a Fig and Honey gelato and juice bar.

Celestyal Cruises has indicated that the entry into service of the new ship will result in the withdrawal of Celestyal Olympia, the former Song of America.
