The company recently offered 5.5 tons of non-perishable food, first aid kits and personal hygiene products to an estimated 7,500 residents of the Municipalities of Piraeus, Drapetsona and Renti, and at the Piraeus Nursing Home.
Furthermore, Celestyal Cruises has joined forces with the Ministry of Health and will donate 12,000 surgical masks and 1,100 liters of liquid disinfectants with the aim to cover the increasing needs of the National Health System.
The company also showed its gratitude to the country’s health staff by offering 50 three-day cruises for two persons, to first responders.
The three-night cruises to the Greek islands will take place during 2020 and 2021 – when travel restrictions are lifted. These will include stateroom accommodation, standard beverages, entertainment, gratuities as well as two excursions to Ancient Ephesus, Kusadasi and Palace of Knossos on Crete.
“We are going through one of the most difficult times in modern history. Our goal is to support and offer relief to vulnerable groups and show our gratitude to those who are at the forefront of this fight. During these extremely difficult and unpredictable times worldwide, values such as humanity and solidarity matter the most,” said Celestyal Cruises CEO Chris Theophilides.
The cruise company also plans to launch a special discount policy for frontline healthcare workers in Greece and the other markets it serves.
