The two itineraries

The Eclectic Aegean cruise marks Celestyal Cruises’ return to Istanbul and also adds Canakkale, Volos, Crete, Santorini and Mykonos as ports of call.

The 2019 sailings for this cruise include 21st and 28th October and 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th November. 

The Celestyal Crystal will also set sail to Ashdod, Israel and Alexandria/Port Said, Egypt on the Three Continents itinerary along with Limassol, Cyprus, Rhodes, Greece and Kusadasi, Turkey. 

The 2019 departures with a special Christmas and New Year’s sailing for this itinerary include 2nd, 9th, 16th 23rd and 30th December.

Andy Magowan vice president commercial – Europe, commented: “With the additional emphasis on our Greek roots through our cuisine offerings and onboard experiences, our guests will enjoy an authentic and expanded destination experience that no other line sailing in the Aegean and Mediterranean can offer.” 

Both itineraries are suitable for group bookings. 


Celestyal Cruises has announced an extensive suite refurbishment programme for the Celestyal Crystal’s 43 junior balcony suites and 16 suites. 

Celestyal Cruises CEO Chris Theophilides commented: “We are thrilled to be transforming the Celestyal Crystal’s Suite product with a new, contemporary look and feel to welcome even more premium guests this year.”

The renovation programme includes a top-to bottom overhaul of the vessel’s suite soft furnishings, in follow-up to the suite refurbishment that was completed two years ago on the Celestyal Crystal’s fleet mate, the Celestyal Olympia.
