New Celestyal Experience Ship to Debut March 2021
Celestyal Cruises, as of March 6, 2021, will set sail for the Greek Islands and the Eastern Mediterranean with its “Experience” ship, the newest addition to its fleet.
The ship’s sailings will begin with the seven-night “Three Continents” itinerary calling on Greece (Athens and Rhodes), Turkey (Kusadasi), Israel (Ashdod), Egypt (Port Said) and Cyprus (Limassol).
On April 3, Celestyal Experience will set sail on the seven-night “Idyllic Aegean” itinerary to visit Athens, Rhodes, Crete (Agios Nikolaos), Santorini, Milos, Mykonos and Kusadasi (Ephesus).
Later in the season, the Celestyal Experience will operate the “Eclectic Aegean” itinerary, a seven-night voyage which introduces the historic city of Thessaloniki as a new embarkation port. In addition to the highlights of an overnight stay in Istanbul and the breathtaking Meteora, this exclusive itinerary also includes a visit to the site of Ancient Troy.
“This has been a challenging year for everyone. However, we are extremely optimistic about the future of travel and, especially cruising. Celestyal Experience will be a game-changer for us, and we can’t wait to present her to our guests,” said Celestyal Cruises CEO Chris Theophilides.
The Celestyal Experience has a capacity of up to 1,800 guests in 789 staterooms, 166 of which feature balconies, sea terraces and bridge-view verandas.
She features a range of experiences for guests of all ages including four restaurants, seven bars and lounges, two pools, two jacuzzis, a beach club, a sundeck and a jogging track.
The ship is also well-suited for visiting smaller ports, a key element for Celestyal and for destinations that remain off-limits to larger vessels.
