Celestyal Cruises doesn’t just bring its passengers to the Aegean and the Eastern Mediterranean – they introduce you to the best of Greece, to Greek culture and history. Their cruises embody the concept of Filoxenia, the Greek word for “hospitality,” making you a friend. Celestyal Cruises take you to idyllic islands, where you will feel as if you have stepped back into a bygone Greece. As the only home-porting cruise line in Greece, Celestyal Cruises know how to spoil you with real Greek hospitality, stellar Greek cuisine, nightly entertainment and themed events that immerses you in archaeology, culture, cuisine, history and music.Because of their smaller vessels, Celestyal Cruises have access to the smaller ports and lesser-known archaeological and architectural marvels. Each of ships is like a floating grand hotel, one at which the entire staff knows each passenger by name. You can tell that the people of Celestyal Cruises love what they do, and each of them considers every passenger his or her personal guest while they’re sailing with them.What differentiates Celestyal Cruises from other Greek cruises? Itineraries! They dock at the best cruise ports in the best seasons, and you have ample time to enjoy the individual charms of every port visited. Classical temples, whitewashed village churches and grand city cathedrals, towering minarets and arabesque palaces, cobblestone streets and winding Kasbahs, medieval palaces and fortified harbor towns…Celestyal Cruises combine these magnificent sites with attentive service, delicious meals, lively entertainment and fun activities for passengers of ALL ages.
