Celestyal Goes Classic In The Aegean

Celestyal Cruises has set sail on its 2017 season in the Aegean.

The cruise company’s classic Iconic Aegean itinerary began operation earlier this month, which its new Euphoric Aegean sailings begin April 14 to June 30; and Sept. 8 to Oct. 27; and its Idyllic Aegean itinerary runs from June 30 to Sept. 1.

Celestyal Cruises’ Euphoric Aegean itineraries are three-, four- and seven-day cruises to the region’s classic, ancient cities and legendary harbours.

The 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 14.

The high points of Celestyal’s cruises are the destinations themselves, including new Mediterranean destinations such as Samos on the Iconic Aegean itineraries and Chania (Crete) and Nafplion (Peloponnese) on the Euphoric Aegean itineraries.

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 passengers with full board accommodation featuring Greek gastronomy, a select number of shore excursions at all destinations, an onboard entertainment program and unlimited consumption drink packages featuring premium brands.

As for themed cruises, the company will host 44 this season.
