Beginning in Athens, the ship also visits the island of Corfu before a guided tour of Olympia, site of the ancient Olympic Games before heading back to Athens with a tour including the famous Acropolis. 

All cruises onboard Celestyal include a free Sky High drinks package for all bookings made until 31st March, 2025.

The 10-day holiday starts in the small Norwegian town of Longyearbyen with its inshore waters and fjords and spectacular cliffs inhabited by thousands of seabirds.

Will Sarson, head of product cruise and long haul at Riviera, said: “Our ocean 2025 programme is shaping up to be our most comprehensive yet, with a wide range of cruises taking guests to firm favourites and lesser-known gems. These new itineraries perfectly complement our existing options, giving guests even more reasons to book and explore with Riviera.”
