Cruise ship to be retired by Celestyal Cruises
The 'Celestyal Crystal' will be retired and make its final voyage with Celestyal Cruises on Aug 27, 2023. The ship has been in service with the company since 2007, when Celestyal was still operated as Louis Cruises. The 'Celestyal Crystal' had been acquired to replace the 'Sea Diamond' that had sunk off Santorini while on a cruise, and since then has become very popular with travelers, getting refitted in 2017 with staterooms with balconies and upgrades to her engines.
Cruise ship brought supplies to earthquake shaken region
Celestyal Cruises has partnered with the Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD) to provide relief supplies to the residents of Turkey affected by the recent earthquake, which resulted in over 50,000 deaths and left more than one million people homeless. In response to this crisis, Celestyal has donated blankets and sleeping bags to help provide shelter for those in need. The supplies were transported aboard the 'Celestyal Crystal' on its first voyage of the season, which started on March 7, 2023, in Ashdod, and included a call to the port of Kusadasi. In addition to the donation of supplies, Celestyal Cruises will also donate a portion of the revenues from shore excursions in Turkey to the relief effort. The donation of supplies and revenues from shore excursions will make a significant impact on the relief effort and help provide much-needed support to the people of Turkey.
