Launching July, Neonyx Cruises will sail around the Cyclades

A new cruise line has reconfigured a former Costa Cruises ship to run adults-only party sailings with DJs “performing from sunset to sunrise”.

Pireaus-based Neonyx Cruises is to enter service with the former 3,470-passenger Costa Magica around the Greek islands from 15 July 2024.

A series of adults-only three- and four-night cruises among the Cyclades islands will operate as a floating electronic dance music festival.

The re-named Goddess of the Night, billed as the first in the fleet to sail, will feature a line-up of between seven and 10 international DJs and a buffet open until 4.30am.

Passengers can customise cruises by choosing their embarkation and disembarkation ports to be either Piraeus or Mykonos in Greece or Cesme in Turkey. The ship will also visit Santorini.

All 1,354 cabins on the 105-tonne ship built in 2004 have been renovated with modern design and sustainable materials.

Neonyx Cruises is styling itself as offering “the ultimate fusion of entertainment and premium cruise hospitality”.

A spokesperson said: “With an onboard line-up of world-famous DJs performing from sunset to sunrise, Neonyx Cruises promises a remarkable journey for solo travellers, couples and friends travelling around Mykonos and Santorini aboard its iconic ship, Goddess of the Night.

“Neonyx Cruises will provide the perfect setting to enjoy non-stop electronic music, captivating shows and vibrant vacations in the Mediterranean.”
