Celestyal Cruises Announces New Season in the Aegean
Celestyal Cruises, a specialist in destination-centric cruising, has announced its new season in the Aegean with new itineraries, new destinations and a new Celestyal Inclusive Experience.
Celestyal Nefeli embarked on the company’s classic Iconic Aegean itineraries on March 10 and then will set sail on the company’s new Euphoric Itineraries (April 14 – June 30 & September 8 – October 27) and Idyllic Itineraries (June 30 – September 1). The new Euphoric itineraries are 3-, 4- and 7-day cruises to the classic and ancient cities and legendary harbors. These voyages are master classes in the Aegean, with calls at Cesme, Chania, Izmir, Lavrion, Mykonos, Nafplion, Rhodes and Santorini.
This season Celestyal Cruises has added new mediterranean cruise destinations such as Samos, Chania and Nafplion (Peloponnese). The addition of Samos gives passengers the option of either adding an extra Greek island to their cruise or disembarking in Kusadasi, Turkey, near Ancient Ephesus.
“No other cruise can provide such a choice of destinations in such an authentic way and with such a high level of service at such an attractive price”, Kyriakos Anastassiadis, CEO of Celestyal Cruises, said. “Celestyal Cruises has become synonymous with value and with giving our passengers an ever-expanding selection of destinations. Four years ago we visited six harbors and now our new Aegean season covers 15.”
Celestyal’s new Aegean season also includes the launch of the Celestyal Inclusive Experience, which provides passengers with full board accommodation featuring exquisite Greek enogastronomy, fascinating shore excursions, a rich onboard entertainment program and unlimited consumption drink packages.
“We have become a ‘top-of-mind’ holiday proposition for short breaks, particularly as our 3- and 4-day cruises, which call at two ports per day, are perfect for combination with land-based holidays,” Pythagoras Nagos, VP of Sales for Celestyal Cruises, said. “In just a weekend, you can traverse the Aegean, visit three islands and explore a UNESCO World Heritage site. What a great way to experience Greece!”
Celestyal has revitalized its entire onboard cruise experience, and the 2017 themed cruise season, divided into two sections, will include:
- Stories of Greek Heritage: Culture and Enogastronomy (March-May 2017 & September-November 2017) – Lyceum Club of Greek Women, Greek Cuisine Demonstrations, Greek Olive Oil, Greek Wine
- Stories of Greek Summer Festival (June-August 2017) – Greek Music, Traditional Greek Music (with Thanasis Polykandriotis), Science Festival, Full Moon Party
