Celestyal Cruises’ latest cruise ship, Celestyal Majesty will be based in Cuba in 2018, the cruise line has announced.
On charter to Thomson Cruises since 2012, and currently sailing as Thomson Majesty, the ship is due to leave the Thomson fleet on November 26, 2017. The ship will undergo a refurbishment, before transferring to the Celestyal Cruises fleet.
Celestyal Majesty will begin operating cruises to Cuba from January 15, 2018. The 40,900 GT ship will offer eight-day cruises every Tuesday from Havana. Starting with an overnight stay in the Cuban capital, the ship will continue to Punta Frances, Cienfuegos, Montego Bay, Santiago De Cuba, followed by a day at sea, before arriving back in Havana. Alternatively, guests can choose to join the ship in Montego Bay, which departs every Friday, until the end of 2018.
Celestyal Crystal will briefly operate two sailings from Cuba in January 2018, before making its way to the Mediterranean, where the ship will offer three-, four-, and seven-day cruises to Greece and Turkey from Lavrion, near Athens.
Celestyal Olympia will sail from Piraeus, offering three-, and four-day cruises to Greece and Turkey. Celestyal Cruises is yet to announce its plans for Celestyal Nefeli.
