Logo of Celestyal CruisesList of cruises operated by Celestyal Cruises

(former “Louis Cruises”)

in Greece (Greek islands in the Aegean Sea)

and Turkey (Kusadasi, Cesme, Izmir, Istanbul, Dikili).

Most of them are circular cruises departing from Lavrio (approx. 60kms from Athens) or Piraeus; embarkation/disembarkation is, however, possible at other ports of call along the cruise itinerary.

The Celestyal Cruises fleet consists of medium sized cruise ships of less than 500 cabins each (except from the ‘Celestyal Olympia’ which has 725 cabins), offering a more intimate ambiance and personalized service. The 3-, 4- & 7-day programs combine the brilliant Aegean Sea, studded with the stunningly beautiful Greek islands, with historical gems like the breathtaking Parthenon in Athens, the multi-cultural city of Istanbul and the grandiose ancient city of Ephesus, unique samples of world-defining civilizations.
