Previously known as Louis Cruise Lines, Celestyal Cruises is one of the most prominent cruise lines sailing throughout the Greek Islands and Turkey. Each ship underwent a refurbishment to honour the Hellenic heritage of the company and its founders, naming the facilities on board after figures from ancient Greek mythology.
Of their fleet of five ships, two are chartered to Thomson Cruises while the other three operate out of Athens’ two major ports: Lavrion and Piraeus. From there, guests can travel around the Mediterranean to both the major and smaller ports that are inaccessible by larger cruise ships. Here, Celestyal Cruises has the advantage due to their fleet of smaller, cosy vessels that take guests to the little jewels of the Aegean Sea. With Celestyal Cruises, travellers also have the option to custom-create their own stay-and-cruise holidays, with embarkation available for 3-, 4- and 7-day cruises at Kusadasi in Istanbul and Heraklion in Crete.
Celestyal Cruises prides themselves on being the only cruise line that gives its guests an authentic Greek experience. They offer passengers a unique and localised insight into Greek history, beauty, cuisine and culture.
