Celestyal Cruises, the specialist in destination-centric cruising, today announced its new season in the Aegean.
Celestyal Nefeli embarked on the company’s classic Iconic Aegean itineraries on March 10th and then will set sail on the company’s new Euphoric Itineraries (14 April – 30 June & 8 September – 27 October) and beloved Idyllic Itineraries (30 June – 1 September).
Celestyal Cruise’ new Euphoric itineraries are 3-, 4- and 7-day cruises to the classic, ancient cities and legendary harbors beloved of millions for millennia. These voyages are master classes in the Aegean, with calls at Cesme, Chania, Izmir, Lavrion, Mykonos, Nafplion, Rhodes and Santorini. Celestyal Olympia will be replacing Celestyal Nefeli on the Iconic Itineraries as of April 14th.
The “heroes” of all of Celestyal’s incomparable cruises are the destinations themselves, including new mediterranean cruise destinations such as Samos on the Iconic itineraries and Chania (Crete) and Nafplion (Peloponnese) on the Euphoric itineraries – the company’s cozy ships and legendary personalized service play strong supporting roles. 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.
Celestyal’s new Aegean season also includes the 2017 launch of the Celestyal Inclusive Experience, which provides all of our passengers with full board accommodation featuring exquisite Greek enogastronomy, a select number of fascinating shore excursions at all destinations, a rich onboard entertainment program, and unlimited consumption drink packages featuring premium brands, all at the industry’s best value-for-money price. There’s no better, more economical, more immersive way to explore the greek culture and experience the authentic Aegean.
As for themed cruises, the company will host 44 this season. For the second consecutive year Celestyal Cruises proudly presents Celestyal Stories of Greek Hospitality. The company has revitalized its entire onboard cruise experience, and the 2017 themed cruise season, divided into two sections, will include:
