Celestyal Cruises has completed the installation of 43 new balconies on the Celestyal Crystal following a 20-day refurbishment.
Twenty-six 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. The fitting of the balconies was completed in Piraeus by expert Greek shipbuilders.
The balconies were installed in tandem with other hotel upgrades and the completion of technical maintenance.
“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,” said Kyriakos Anastassiadis, CEO of Celestyal Cruises.
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 the cabins and the public spaces on the Celestyal Nefeli will be also redecorated.
