Celestyal Cruises announces planned cruise restart






Celestyal Cruises will resume operations on 29 May from Piraeus, Athens with a seven-night Idyllic Aegean itinerary.


Initially planned to start at the end of April, the new recommencement date is in accordance with the recently announced Greek Ministry of Tourism roadmap to opening Greece to tourism and cruising for the 2021 season.


Prices for the seven-night Idyllic Aegean itinerary starts from £549 per person and will call at Kusadasi, Rhodes, Santorini, Lavrion (for Temple of Poseidon), Mykonos , Milos and Crete.


The company will resume sailing with the Celestyal Crystal so as to utilise her ideal size. 


As more countries reopen with increasing demand, the company will announce the 2021 deployment of the remaining fleet in due course.


Until such time, the Celestyal Crystal will utilise two embarkation ports, Piraeus and Lavrion in Athens, providing the ability to offer shorter three and four-night Idyllic itineraries in addition to the seven-night sailing.


The shorter three and four-night sailings will operate on a Wednesday from Lavrion and Saturday from Piraeus respectively.


"We are extremely encouraged by the increased global distribution and effectiveness of the vaccine and by the positive response we are receiving from our partners and guests around the world," said Celestyal Cruises CEO, Chris Theophilides. 


"We will continue to monitor the positive progress of the healthy reopening of both Greece and cruising while continuing to liaise with the European and Greek health authorities to ensure that we provide a safe and responsible operation for our guests, crew and the communities we serve."  


Guests currently booked on the cancelled late April through May voyages have the option to receive a refundable Future Cruise Credit (FCC) equivalent to 100% of the amount paid plus an additional non-refundable bonus FCC equal to 20% of the actual cruise fare paid.


As an added element of flexibility and recognising the prolonged effects of the pandemic, Celestyal has announced that it will allow guests currently holding FCCs as well as guests about to receive them, the opportunity to apply the FCC towards Celestyal's soon-to-be-announced 2023 itineraries in addition to 2021 and 2022 itineraries.
