Celestyal’s CEO, Chris Theophillides noted, “Our new, 2020 Adriatic itineraries, combined with the recent launch of the Eclectic and Three Continents itineraries in 2019/2020, represents 33 additional weeks of operation, bringing us even closer to our objective of sailing year-round and offering our guests even more choices of destinations throughout the Aegean, Mediterranean and now the Adriatic.”

Theophillides added, “We are thrilled to be visiting these new destinations at less crowded and congested times of the year to provide our guests with a much better experience and a chance to explore the magical Christmas markets and take a deeper dive into the cultural, culinary and historic treasures that these destinations offer.”
