We would like to announce we have completed the installation of 43 new balconies on the Celestyal Crystal: 26 new balconies were added to cabins on Deck 6 and 17 new balconies were added to cabins on Deck 7. Eight of the ship’s existing balconies were refurbished and extended. These balconies are part of an extensive refurbishment program to continually elevate the quality of our brand and to ensure we are delivering a positive passenger experience on all of our vessels.
The fitting of the balconies was completed in Piraeus. All of the balconies were installed over a period of 20 days in tandem with other hotel upgrades and the completion of technical maintenance. Following the refurbishment, the Celestyal Crystal now has 43 balcony junior suites, eight balcony suites and two imperial balcony suites: in total 53 of her suites now have balconies. Each balcony extends 1.4 meters from the ship’s bulkhead; the length of each balcony is between 2.8 meters and 5.8 meters.
Refurbishment of other Celestyal Cruises vessels is ongoing, including 21 junior suites, nine suites and the remaining 227 outside cabins on the Celestyal Olympia, as well as a number of upgrades on her public areas. All of the cabins and the public spaces on the Celestyal Nefeli will be also redecorated.
The current work being undertaken in Piraeus marks the commencement of the second phase of our investment program, which reflects our commitment to the continuous upgrade of the Celestyal fleet. We are certain the improved décor and comfort on all of our vessels will help us provide our cruisers the best, most authentic onboard experience going forward.
