While Celestyal has always offered its guests the marquis destinations such as Mykonos and Santorini, the cruise line has also earned a reputation for being a “trailblazer” in taking travellers to more of the unexplored side of Greece as well as staying longer in port to allow deeper exploration than what is typically offered by other lines visiting Greece.
This will continue once again in 2022. On Celestyal’s popular seven-night Idyllic Aegean cruises starting in April, Celestyal will sail to Thessaloniki. Celestyal is the only cruise line calling on a regular basis to the historic city of Thessaloniki.
Celestyal’s Eclectic Aegean includes Kavala, the northern, centuries-old Greek port city on the Thracian Sea, often referred to as the “blue city” due to its crystal-clear coastal waters and legendary scenic sea views from the Bay of Kavala, with a picturesque historic town unfolding high atop the triangular Panagia peninsula.

The end of 2022 will see the return of Celestyal’s Three Continents seven-night itinerary, last operated in late 2019, calling on Greece, Turkey, Israel, Egypt and Cyprus. This will be followed by two , exclusive holiday sailings, the ten-night Christmas special sailing calling on Thessaloniki, Izmir (Turkey), Rhodes, Limassol (Cyprus), Alexandria (Egypt) and an overnight visit in Haifa (Israel) to spend both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in the “Holy Land,” and the eight-night New Year’s sailing with visits to Heraklion, Santorini, Kusadasi (Turkey), along with an overnight stay in Istanbul, to take in the New Year’s Eve fireworks, and Volos.
