Celestyal Cruises is celebrating the launch of its newest itineraries with a 20% commission special on 7-day all-inclusive cruise bookings. The company is pleased to demonstrate its ongoing commitment to its North American travel agent partners rewarding them with commission across the majority of components, including the cruise fare (which includes, standard unrestricted drinks package and select shore excursions), additional pre-sold shore excursions, and pre-sold premium drinks upgrade package. This special 20% commission offer is applicable on new bookings made between now and June 30th, 2018 for any 7 day all-inclusive cruise departing in 2018, 2019, and 2020.
In the ongoing effort to continue introducing new destinations and to reach its goal of presenting year-round cruising in the Aegean, Celestyal Cruises recently introduced three new 7-day all-inclusive itineraries: the new Idyllic with sailings commencing in April 2018, and starting in 2019 the new Eclectic and Three Continents cruise programs.
All of these exclusive new itineraries, like all of the line’s cruises, feature the Celestyal Inclusive Experience – the industry’s best all-inclusive program including meals on board, drinks, entertainment, gratuities, port charges, and the best excursions – all in one price! The line’s generous drinks package offers passengers included top shelf spirits, wines, cocktails and beers, specialty coffees, bottled water, as well as juices and sodas. This is just one of the many reasons Celestyal Cruises has been recognized as one of the industry’s best-value and best-service cruise lines.
Beginning on April 30, 2018, Celestyal Crystal will perform the highly-anticipated new 7-day Idyllic – departing from Athens’ port of Piraeus and featuring overnight stays in the marquee ports of Mykonos and Santorini, ideal opportunities for experiencing these postcard perfect Greek Isles as well as their world-renowned nightlife and unparalleled sunsets. Along the way travelers will discover the off-the-beaten path island of Milos, a volcanic island acclaimed for having some of the most beautiful beaches in the Aegean; Crete, where the Minoan Palace of Knossos awaits adventurers; and Turkey's Kusadasi, where cruisers are sure to be awe-struck on an in-depth shore excursion to explore Ancient Ephesus.
Celestyal Cruises is re-affirming its commitment to supporting tourism in Turkey, and is thrilled to unveil its Eclectic itinerary that will re-introduce the port of Istanbul to its cruise programs. With weekly sailings from October 21st through November 25th of 2019, this itinerary will sail round-trip from Athens’ port of Piraeus and include an overnight in exotic Istanbul, considered a high-demand, bucket list destination for many North American travelers. The itinerary also introduces two new destinations: Greece’s Volos, perfect port for taking in Meteora’s hanging monasteries, and Turkey’s Canakkale, gateway to Troy and site where the WWI Gallipoli Campaign took place. Travelers on this itinerary will additionally have the opportunity to visit Crete and Santorini, and will also experience the lively vibes of Mykonos with an overnight stay.
The new Three Continents sailings will commence in December of 2019 with five sailings from the 2nd through the 30th that will also mark the introduction of Christmas and New Year’s cruises in the Aegean for Celestyal Cruises. This itinerary is an enchanting voyage visiting intriguing destinations on the three Continents of Europe, Asia and Africa. Beginning and concluding in Athens, passengers will explore cities and villages in Greece, Egypt, Israel, Cyprus, the Greek Islands, and Turkey. From Greece's capital, the voyage heads to Alexandria and Port Said in Egypt – land of Pharaohs and Pyramids. The journey continues in Israel, with inspired excursions to sites of biblical and historical importance. Next, and a new destination Celestyal Cruises is introducing as part of this itinerary, is Cyprus' Limassol where travelers can visit the area's mountain villages and tour Paphos. The Greek Island of Rhodes and Turkey's Kusadasi round out this fascinating itinerary before sailing back to Athens, mythical home to the Greek gods and goddesses of centuries gone by.
