Celestyal to resume operations on May 29 with the Celestyal Crystal

ATHENS — Celestyal Cruises has announced the resumption of operations on May 29, one month later than previously planned.

Operations will resume with the Celestyal Crystal from Piraeus, Athens with the seven-night ‘Idyllic Aegean’ itinerary, which is priced from $729 per person and calling upon Kusadasi, Rhodes, Santorini, Lavrion, Mykonos, Milos and Crete. 

As more countries reopen with increasing demand, Celestyal will announced the 2021 deployment of the remaining fleet in due course. Until then, Celestyal Crystal will utilize two embarkation ports – Piraeus and Lavrion in Athens – to offer shorter three- and four-night ‘Idyllic’ itineraries in addition to the seven-night sailing. The shorter 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 continue to 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 will 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. Plus, Celestyal has announced that it will allow guests currently holding FCCs as well as those about to receive FCCs as a result of the new recommencement date the chance to apply their FCC towards Celestyal’s soon-to-be-announced 2023 itineraries, in addition to 2021 and 2022 itineraries.
