Celestyal renews fleet with The Celestyal Discovery, debuting March 2024

Piraeus-based Celestyal Cruises has confirmed the acquisition of a second new vessel this year, as the Celestyal Discovery follows the recent arrival of the Celestyal Journey, signalling a fleet refresh and further commitment to significant investment into the customer proposition, the company said.

Celestyal Discovery will soon join her “fleet mate” to undergo an extensive refurbishment programme in Greece over the winter period, signifying the company´s relentless pursuit to keep investing in the customer offering.

The newly added vessel to the company´s portfolio will make her debut in March 2024.

The Celestyal Discovery will make her debut in March 2024 after her “multimillion-euro renovations this winter.”

Chris Theophilides, chief executive of Celestyal Cruises said: “She follows the very recent arrival of the Celestyal Journey, and owing to strong market and business conditions, we are thrilled to have expedited the renewal of our fleet to welcome the Celestyal Discovery into the family. Her name symbolizes our ethos of creating unmissable moments of discovery through connecting people, places, and self.”

“Hot on the heels of launching the Celestyal Journey in September”, said the company, adding that “we are incredibly excited to unveil a complete refresh of our superstar fleet with another new addition, the Celestyal Discovery.”

One month ago, the company celebrated the recent launch of the Celestyal Journey, the new “star to the fleet,” as the cruise line characterises it, with a grand onboard event in the ports of Piraeus and Thessaloniki, in Greece.

During the event, the cruise operator welcomed more than 400 distinguished officials, including among others the minister of shipping and island policy Christos Stylianides, trade agents, partners, and media representatives.

As the company claims, the cruise industry’s growth in Greece is poised to extend well into the future, offering significant benefits to the local and national economies and Celestyal plays a vital role in this with a €136 million total annual contribution to the Greek economy.
