Celestyal Cruises Announces “Biggest Ever Sale”

Celestyal Cruises, the award-winning, number one choice for cruise travellers to the Greek Islands and the Eastern Mediterranean, comes to the rescue of last-minute travellers this summer with its “Biggest Ever Sale”, featuring savings of up to 45% off select 2022 sailings booked from now through 11th July 2022. Prices start from as low as €297* for the three-night "Iconic Aegean" itinerary, which is normally priced from €530*, reflecting a saving of up to 44%.  The popular seven-night "Idyllic Aegean" itinerary, which is normally priced from €1.300* has been reduced by 45% to just €721*.  The three-night “Iconic Aegean” sets sail from Athens and calls in Mykonos, Kusadasi (Turkey), Patmos, Crete (Heraklion) and Santorini.  The seven-night “Idyllic Aegean” begins in Athens and visits Thessaloniki, Kusadasi (Turkey), Rhodes, Crete (Heraklion), Santorini, Mykonos and Milos. All cruises include the Celestyal All-Inclusive Experience with unlimited classic drinks, locally-inspired cuisine on-board, entertainment, select shore excursions, port and service charges (including fuel surcharges) and gratuities. Solo travellers also enjoy no single supplement on select sailings from Celestyal, a “Solo Traveller” multi-award winner.


“For travellers who might have delayed their summer holiday plans or have been reluctant to travel due to the rising costs of air travel, Celestyal Cruises is pleased to offer the best value at sea this summer and beyond to offset those air fares,” said Leslie Peden, chief commercial officer.  “Our all-inclusive holidays have always been extremely good value, and now we are making them even more affordable and bringing that dream Greek Isles cruise within reach for more travellers.”


Offers are also available on the four-night "Iconic Aegean" sailing from Athens to Mykonos, Kusadasi (Turkey), Patmos, Crete (Heraklion), Rhodes and Santorini, with prices starting from €393* compared with the regular price of €670*. The seven-night "Eclectic Aegean" itinerary is also featured in the campaign, starting at €591* compared with the regular price of €1.080*. This cruise begins in Istanbul and calls in Kavala, Thessaloniki, Volos, Santorini and Athens. Kavala is a new stop for Celestyal.  This northern, centuries-old Greek port city on the Thracian Sea, is often referred to as the “blue city” due to its crystal-clear coastal waters and legendary scenic sea view.  


For travelers looking to book holidays now for the autumn and winter, limited time “Biggest Ever Sale” offers are also featured on Celestyal’s seven-night "Three Continents" cruise, departing from Limassol port on 23, 30 November and 7 December, visiting Egypt, Israel, Cyprus, Turkey and Greece, with prices starting at just €721* compared with €1.080*. The 15th October, one-time, themed seven-night "Steps of Paul" sailing, which departs Athens and visits Thessaloniki, Kavala and Patmos in Greece as well as Istanbul, Dikili and Kusadasi in Turkey is priced from €941* compared with €1.300* outside the promotional period.


For those looking to celebrate the festive season at sea, Celestyal is offering outstanding savings on its special ten-night 17th December Christmas sailing.  This unique itinerary departs Athens and visits Thessaloniki and Rhodes in Greece along with Izmir (Turkey), Egypt, Israel and Cyprus.  This special cruise gives guests a once in a lifetime experience of spending Christmas in the “Holy Land” and is priced at €1.029 * compared with €1.360*.  Those wishing to ring in the New Year at sea can also save on Celestyal’s special eight-night 27th December New Year cruise. This sailing departs Athens and visits Crete (Heraklion), Santorini and Volos in Greece and Kusadasi and Istanbul, just in time for Istanbul’s famous New Year’s Eve celebrations. This cruise is reduced from €1.300* to €947*. For those looking for a longer cruise experience, Celestyal is also including the combined 18-night special Christmas and New Year itinerary.  The cruise begins in Athens and visits Thessaloniki, Rhodes, Crete (Heraklion), Santorini and Volos in Greece and Izmir, Kusadasi and Istanbul along with Egypt, Israel and Cyprus. This sailing is normally priced at €2.360* but starts as low as €1.779* if booked during the “Biggest Ever Sale”.
