More great trips are on offer in Greece, Turkey and the eastern Mediterranean.
Celestyal Cruises has announced new 2019 and 2020 itineraries for folks who love cruising the fabled Greek Islands and nearby regions.
In 2019 Celestyal Cruises will extend its season and return to Istanbul for the first time since 2016 with its new 7-Day Eclectic Aegean itinerary, which sails six departures from October 21 through November 25, 2019. The Eclectic Aegean itinerary includes an overnight stay in Istanbul and calls at Volos, Greece, for excursions to the stunning mountains of Meteora, and to Canakkale, Turkey, for excursions to Troy and Gallipoli.
The itinerary will also visit Heraklion, Santorini and, during its call at Mykonos, will depart at 2 a.m., allowing passengers to fully enjoy the nightlife of this cosmopolitan island.
Celestyal Cruises is also pleased to announce the launch of its 7-day 3 Continents itinerary, with five sailings in December 2019. The 3 Continents itinerary calls at Alexandria and Port Said, Egypt, at Ashdod, Israel, at Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey, at Limassol, Cyprus, and at Rhodes. Shore excursions at each of these ports will give passengers an authentic deep dive into the incredible history and culture of these storied destinations.
Celestyal Cruises’ extended 2019 and 2020 seasons are a first step toward its goal of sailing year-round Aegean cruises. All itineraries feature the award-winning Celeystal Inclusive experience, with all-inclusive drink packages, all meals on-board, entertainment, selected shore excursions, port and service charges and gratuities included in the fare.
“Our 2019 and 2020 itineraries add seven new ports of call to our Eastern Mediterranean product and bring us closer to our objective of sailing year-round in our home waters,” said Celestyal Cruises CEO Kerry Anastassiadis.
“We are thrilled to be returning to Istanbul, and to give our passengers the opportunity to visit Ephesus, Troy and Gallipoli, as well as Volos, Greece, the gateway to the fabled mountain landscapes of Meteora.
“With our new 3 Continents cruise, our passengers can now visit the Holy Land and the Pyramids, in addition to calling at our spectacular Aegean destinations. Given our recent Cruise Critic awards for value, Shorex and service and the addition of these incredible ports of call to our itineraries, we continue to give new and returning passengers more reasons to sail with us.”
