Celestyal Discovery Sets Sail On Maiden Voyage Around The Greek Islands

After months of renovations and hard work, Celestyal Discovery set sail on her maiden voyage this weekend around the Greek islands.

The Discovery is taking over the originally planned schedule for the the 1,402-guest Celestyal Olympia which was retired from Celestyal’s fleet earlier this year. Celestyal Discovery will offer a range of three- and four-night cruises to the Greek Isles and Turkey.

Launching with Celestyal’s Iconic Aegean itinerary, the ship’s maiden voyage, a three-night cruise from Piraeus, includes visits to Mykonos, Patmos, Santorini, and Kusadasi, where guests can also board.

Throughout its debut season with Celestyal Cruises, the Celestyal Discovery will explore various destinations in the region, including Rhodes and Heraklion.

The 2024 program for the Discovery spans until mid-November, after which the ship will undergo a four-month winter layup.

Upon resuming service in 2025, the Discovery will offer seven-night cruises featuring Celestyal Cruises’ Three Continents itinerary. Departures in November and December will include visits to five destinations in Israel, Turkey, Cyprus, Greece, and Egypt, such as Ashdod, Kusadasi, Limassol, Rhodes, and Port Said.

The vessel was originally constructed for Carnival Corporation’s AIDA Cruises and began service in 2003 as AIDAaura.

Before joining Celestyal, the vessel underwent refurbishment in Greece, receiving a new livery and enhancements to public areas. At 42,400 tons, 202.85 meters (665.6 feet) long offering 633 staterooms, including 62 with private balconies, for 1266 guests, the Discovery is considered a mid-sized vessel by Celestyal Cruises. The ship boasts seven bars, four restaurants, a pool deck, and a complete spa.
