Celestyal Crystal

Ship Overview

MS Celestyal Crystal cruise ship (previously sailing as “Louis Cristal”) was built in 1980 as Viking Saga ferry ship for Rederi Ab Sally. Celestyal Crystal is a luxurious passenger liner with an unique yacht–like advanced design and a cruising speed of 18 knots. Stylish lounges, cozy dining venues and open promenades make the experience of sailing with the Louis Cruises line (renamed to Celestyal Cruises) really memorable.


The signature Celestyal experience starts in the very heart of our cruise ships – the dining rooms and lounges. Here you can indulge in rich culinary delights cooked from scratch by our talented chefs and savor fresh Mediterranean ingredients. All of our dining areas, lounges and bars have been carefully designed to accommodate and preserve the intimacy and comfort one expects while cruising. Head over to the Amalthia and Olympus restaurant for some fine dining, or to Aura Grill and Leda buffet for something tasty, quick and easy. Both places serve dishes you won’t forget soon! At the Helios bar you can enjoy a cup of coffee, while at the Horizons, Muses or Eros Lounge & Bar you can have your favorite cocktail. If you feel like something cozier, you can always relax at Thalassa bar for a night drink, while you indulge in some stargazing. At Celestyal Cruises, we do everything we can to make sure you can relax while you enjoy the delicious gastronomy that makes our cruises unforgettable!
