Celestyal To Replace Odyssey With 1,074 Pax Nefeli
Cruises has announced that the 1,074 passengerCelestyal
Nefeliwill replace the Celestyal Odyssey in the
Eastern Mediterranean next season.
Named for the
Greek goddess of hospitality, the Celestyal Nefeli will sail
for Celestyal for the next 2 years, with embarkation from Turkey.
Built in 1992, Celestyal Nefeli was originally operated as Crown
Jewel for Crown Cruise Line. She later served as the Cunard Crown Jewel
and operated as SuperStar Gemini for Star Cruises between 1995 and 2008.
Most recently the ship has been berthed in Scalloway harbour in the Shetland
Islands, where she was used as an accommodation vessel.
The ship will
be delivered to Celestyal in February and refurbished prior to the commencement
of the 2016 cruise season.
Of her 400
cabins (277 outside and 123 inside), 12 are executive suites and 31 are junior
suites: most of the executive suites have private balconies and the junior
suites have extra storage space.
Nefeli is the right size to dock in smaller harbours of the Eastern Caribbean,
like her fleet mates Celestyal Crystal and Celestyal
Celestyal has added 15 new destination ports in the region, including Milos,
Ios, Kos, Samos, Symi, Chios, Cesme and Syros.
