Celestyal reveal dining, entertainment, other features aboard Celestyal Journey

Celestyal Cruises has revealed dining and entertainment experiences aboard its new ship Celestyal Journey, which it purchased from Carnival Corporation earlier this year.

Celestyal Journey previously sailed as Ryndam for Holland America Line, and most recently as Pacific Aria for P&O Australia, but has now undergone a bow-to-stern refit and refurbishment ahead of her relaunch for Celestyal Cruises.

Celestyal Journey will debut on September 2nd, 2023, with 630 Dream Suites and Cosmos Cabins, including 120 Junior Dream Suites and 28 Grand Dream Suites.

“This is an incredibly exciting time for Celestyal, and we are looking forward to working closely with our trade partners to highlight our much-elevated onboard product alongside our renowned brand proposition of destination-rich, immersive travel experiences,” said Lee Haslett, Chief Operating Officer, Celestyal Cruises.

“Our goal is to immerse our agent and operator partners in the Celestyal Journey via in-person ship visits, fam trips and training to expand their product knowledge and truly benefit their customers,” he added. “We are excited about this next chapter and the opportunity to grow together.”

The ship will feature the first-ever penthouse aboard any Celestyal ship. Called the Stargazer Suite, the cabin will feature a large private terrace and separate living room and bedroom.

Chef’s Table

Celestyal Journey will also debut exclusive dining experiences, from moonlight dining in Thalassa to Mediterranean delicacies at the Smoked Olive restaurant.

There will also be Grill Seekers specialty restaurant, and an Asian-inspired experience at Pink Moon.

Cooking demonstrations and private dining will be offered at the new Chef’s Table, while the new Fizz Club will provide champagne and cocktail, and The Grapevine Wine Cellar will offer wine tasting.
