Celestyal Cruises has resumed operations with a seven-night Idyllic Aegean itinerary on Celestyal Crystal. The Greek island itinerary set sail on a round trip from Athens with calls in Kusadasi, Rhodes, Santorini, Lavrion, Mykonos, Milos and Crete.
The start of the summer season will be followed by the deployment of Celestyal Olympia, which will set sail on June 28th on a new, seven-night Legendary Archipelago itinerary. Greece Minister of Tourism Harry Theoharis said in a statement that it is with great pride for everyone working in the Greek tourism industry that the return of Celestyal ships to the Greek seas this summer has been welcomed.
He mentioned that the resumption of cruising under new health and safety guidelines and the strong commitment to Greece from the cruise industry at large is further proof of how resilient Greece is and how quickly it can bring back a sense of normality, just in time for the summer travel season.
Chris Theophilides, Chief Executive, Celestyal Cruises added that following the most difficult and challenging year, the line is beyond thrilled to be welcoming guests back onboard this summer on the most popular, signature Greek island itinerary, the Idyllic Aegean.
He shared that it was no small task and it is due to the unwavering dedication and unified teamwork of the Celestyal team, both shoreside and onboard, as well as the support from our strategic partners, both large and small. He also mentioned that everyone is excited to be welcoming guests back onboard to experience the award-winning, warm and genuine Greek hospitality that only Celestyal can deliver and come back stronger than ever.
