Celestyal Cruises: 2017 UEFA Champions League Final Sets Sail for Mykonos
The Celestyal Nefeli of Celestyal Cruises will host the Heineken Champions Voyage, which will take place in Greece for the very first time. More than 500 lucky passengers from all over the world will watch the 2017 UEFA Champions League final — to be played at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales — on the Nefeli during a unique cruise to the popular Greek island of Mykonos.
The Celestyal Nefeli will embark from the port of Piraeus on Saturday, June 3, with consumers, international football representatives and journalists, all of whom will enjoy an onboard presentation of the 2017 UEFA Champions League final and a special cruise to experience the beauty of Mykonos.
“We are delighted to participate in this international event, especially the opportunity to promote the beauty of our country and the authentic Greek hospitality we provide to our passengers,” said Kerry Anastassiadis, CEO of Celestyal Cruises and Chairman of CLIA Europe.
The Heineken Champions Voyage is an established international event and will be part of an integrated campaign across more than 50 countries to promote Greece and Mykonos.
“The 2017 Heineken Champions Voyage is an important initiative to present cruising, a rapidly emerging sector of the tourism industry, as the ideal choice for travelers, one that combines a holiday with entertainment,” he said.
Heineken will for the next three years offer through its #ChampionsVoyage challenge the chance for a select few to watch the UEFA Champions League final while on cruise in Greece
“We are certain Heineken’s guests will truly enjoy the trip, the cosmopolitan environment of Mykonos and this unique celebration of football,” Anastassiadis added.
Celestyal Cruises is one of the only cruise lines based in Greece. The company’s main ports of call are the Greek Islands and Cuba, where it sails 7-day cruises year-round.
