We have just returned from a seven day cruise with Celestyal to Mykonos, Milos, Santorini, Heraklion and Kusadasi. Despite the small size of the ship and the age, none of that mattered because of the huge welcome and excellent service every one of the staff provided us. we stayed in a junior suite with balcony and doubt we will ever go back to a cabin with just a porthole or window again. It was such a delight to sit and relax on the balcony whilst the ship is on full steam ahead to our next destination. The swimming pool on deck 9 was small with a capacity of only 10 people at any one time so we only managed a quick dip on one occasion, again this didn't matter because we could have a soak on deck 7 in the jacuzzi. This however was situated in the middle of the Thalassa lounge in full view of people relaxing with a drink! We didn't manage to watch every show in the evenings but the few shows we did see we thoroughly enjoyed them. The artistes obviously work very hard to present a professional fully entertaining show. Daytime activities were actively available however often did not take place due to lack of participants! One afternoon there was only five of us taking part in the daily quiz! However the team did work hard to encourage more participation. We enjoyed the themed Greek night and the Captains Cocktail party despite it being very short and the Captains obvious lack of enthusiasm for the event. I was very disappointed however that the Gala night that we were informed was included in the weeks cruise and that I had packed my full length occasion gown did not take place. The food, drinks and service helped to elevate this 3 star ship to 5 star status and we will definitely cruise with Celestyal cruises again!
