Dating from the 9th Century BC, Alexandria was one of the greatest cities of the ancient world and home to one of the Seven Wonders, the Lighthouse. Many ancient glories remain in Alexandria and it is the site of Egypt’s only Roman amphitheatre. Its most famous landmark is Pompey’s Pillar, a pink granite monolith erected in 297 AD, which stands 25 metres high and has a 9-metre circumference. Modern Alexandria also has its treasures. The Corniche, a broad waterfront promenade near the docks, is lined with spectacular 19th Century grand hotels and overlooks the sandy beaches. For a treat, enjoy lunch at the elegant Cecil Hotel, where Winston Churchill once stayed.

Lovely staff, great food, good cleaners. Just felt the ship interior was looking very tired and in need of an upgrade

All arrangements organised by Iglu went without a hitch. We had a fabulous time. The ships facilities were excellent. Food was good. Entertainment was also good. The cabin was larger than I expected. The crew could not do enough for you and they were both pleasant and efficient. Times ashore on this cruise was longer than most other cruise ships excellent itinary. I would not hesitate is using this company again. Hopefully next year.

Amazing cruise experience from start to finish. Have cruised several times before with many of the bigger companies but Celestyal matched them all for service, hospitality, entertainment, itinerary and dining albeit on a smaller scale. There was enough variety of good food to satisfy the most discerning diner and hurray, there was NO midnight buffet so you didn’t fall over all those greedy people stuffing their faces with pizza and chips in the late evening which is often a feature of bigger cruise ships. If I had to find one thing which could be improved, all I would suggest is the coffee from machines in the buffet restaurant is a little on the bland side. However, all you need to do is order from the bar and it’s a different story. All inclusive aspect of the cruise is a bonus and the quality of drinks from the bar was just as good as the premium grade which you can purchase separately. In fact, my inclusive gin and tonic was just as good as the Hendricks which I treated myself to on one occasion. We had booked an outside cabin with picture window but when we boarded we decided to go a bit mad and upgrade to a balcony suite which was amazing. It was huge with every facility you could ask for and the concierge service was exceptional. Giovanni and Robert couldn’t do enough for us and seemed to anticipate what we wanted before we even asked for it. I know sometimes you think you don’t spend much time in your cabin but for the time you are in there it was a delight to have the space to relax without falling over each other and of course an amazing balcony to enjoy watching the idyllic Greek islands pass by. The itinerary is perfect and the extended time in most of the ports means you can see a lot more of the beautiful scenery and island life. The three inclusive excursions were a bonus and the process for getting on an off the ship ship to go ashore, whether on a tour or independently was very efficient and hassle free. This review wouldn’t be complete without a mention for the wonderful Cruise Director, Danny and his entertainment team who were without doubt the most professional performers I have ever enjoyed on a cruise and the twice nightly shows never failed to deliver. The hospitality team also made such a difference as you felt they were genuinely there to make sure you enjoyed your holiday without being pushy or intrusive and by the end of the week there was a real family atmosphere on board. So if you are looking for a small intimate cruise ship (we were 780 passengers) with a joyous atmosphere on board, great service and a terrific itinerary then this is the one for you. Dress code was relaxed but passengers generally chose to glam up in the evenings without going over the top, thereby avoiding the need to be overloaded with formal dresses, flashy jewellery and uncomfortable shoes - not my thing when I’m cruising. Well done Celestyal, we will certainly choosing you as our go to cruise line in the future.
