Celestyal Olympia Cruise
Cabins
Olympia has 724 cabins, spread out over Decks 2 through 7 and 9. Several cabins accommodate up to four passengers, although there are no adjoining rooms. Two cabins are accessible. Only the suites have balconies.
In general, expect cabins that are compact, yet a little larger than more modern cruise ships. After the 2014 cruise season, the line refurbished 160 inside cabins, as well as bathrooms for all inside and outside cabins. The new version features tile bathrooms, square sinks, more modern paneling and storage, and flat-screen TVs.
Inside Cabin
There are 306 inside cabins, measuring 116 square feet. The beds are individual twins, which can be combined into a double; there's also a side backrest that can be pulled down to make the bed a sofa. Furniture includes a pullout table between the beds, a stool and built-in vanity and two built-in wardrobes. Several inside cabins have two additional pull-down beds to house families. Other amenities, available in all cabins, include a minifridge, a TV with English channels (BBC, Bloomberg, Sky News), a hair dryer and an ice bucket.
Capacity: 1664 passengers in total.
Cabins: 724 cabins with en suite bathrooms, TV, radio and air conditioning.
Equipped: Satellite telephone, full air conditioning throughout the ship.
Overview
Named for the ancient sanctuary that was the birthplace of the Olympic Games, and for the mother of Alexander the Great, there's no better way to see our iconic Aegean destinations than on the Celestyal Olympia. Want to discover the heart of cruising? Order a drink on the Hera deck, beside the Olympia's sparkling pool, and watch the Aegean unfurl before her. Two lounges, five bars, three delicious restaurants, our fully-equipped Olympian Gym, Sana Beauty Center and our Kids' Club.... The Celestyal Olympia is a gold medalist at every turn. Want an unforgettable holiday? We invite you and your family to travel the Aegean with her.
The cruise director and entertainment staff do their best to make all nationalities feel welcome, and pack a lot of onboard activity into a short time onboard. The international crowd keeps the lounges busy after the evening show, particularly in the hopping summer months.

Olympia prides itself on offering an immersive Greek culinary experience, and the menu revolves around Greek dishes and wines.
The Main Dining Room (on Deck 4): It provides open seating on a first-come, first-served basis; tables are meant for six. Breakfast is served as a buffet, from 6 to 9:30 a.m. Lunch in the main dining room is also a buffet, although you can order off a menu if you choose. Dinner is open seating, from 7 to 10 p.m. Meals are served in three courses.
The Galileo Room: Just off the main dining room, the Galileo Room has a slightly quieter atmosphere, as well as tables for two. The same menu is served; you can ask to be seated there when you enter the dining room.
Lido Cafe: Is open for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner. Food is served cafeteria style.
Room service is available for a fee.
Activities
Muses Lounge: The ship's main theater on Deck 7, is more of a lounge with a large stage and dance floor. As befits an international ship, the shows lean toward music and dance which are packed with other nationalities, who seemed to be enjoying themselves immensely.
Casino Royale: On Deck 5, has slot machines, poker and a variety of table games. Smoking is allowed.
Bars: One bar is a disco with screens for music videos and karaoke. Another bar is a nice place to meet for a pre-dinner drink, and it has a pianist and singer that take requests for songs. One bar hosts Cuban and Latino music most evenings, with a dance floor to practice those salsa moves. One bar has the best views of the ship, and it's THE spot to go if you want some downtime with your drink.
Pool Bars: Two pool bars - Helios Bar on Deck 9 and Thalassa Bar on Deck 10, serve up fruity tropical drinks. Both are lively on sunny afternoons.
Other Activities: The ship also provides activities such as trivia, bingo, flower-arranging classes, ping pong tournaments, fruit and vegetable carving competitions, towel animal-folding classes, origami lessons, cooking and cocktail demonstrations, Greek language lessons and dance lessons. Each sailaway has its own dance party near the pools.
Family
Located midship on Deck 7, the Kids' Club is open four hours during daytime sailing for toddlers and children up to 12 years; times vary depending on the itinerary. Available activities include coloring and games for the younger kids and a climbing wall and Wii for older children. The Kids' Club also has a bathroom that's kid sized.
For teens between 13 to 18 years old, ping pong tournaments on the sports deck are popular, as well as the arcade and video games.
One pool on Olympia is designed for families.
