7-day Steps of Paul cruise

Logo of Celestyal Cruises

It is nearly 2000 years since Apostle Paul set out from the Holy Land on a journey that was to play a role of inestimable value in the dissemination of Christian ideas and the establishment of Christian communities.
This circular cruise from Athens is a rare opportunity for all those interested in the history of the Christian faith to relive parts of Apostle Paul's journey, and literally follow his path.

Year 2016

 With rates starting from EUR226 per person, you get

  • two overnights, in double room, in a centrally located hotel in Athens including breakfast
  • both ways private transfers between Athens and the cruise port.

 Why to take this package deal?

  • Athens, the city close to the cruise port is more than just the place your cruise begins and ends; it's an exciting and world renowned destination!
  • If you have to take an overnight flight or a long haul flight you need at least a day to recover, otherwise the first day or two of your cruise can be an absolute waste.
  • It functions as a "safety-cushion" in case of flights' or other delays.
  • It is a convenient way to get by pre-arranged transfers from your hotel to the pier and back, since Lavrion port is located 60kms outside town and not easily accessible. There is no metro connecting Athens and Lavrion and the local bus does not run frequently.

We were on the final cruise of the year on a ship that would no longer be in the Celestyal lineup. It had been sold to China for conversion to a casino. There were many new crew members aboard and while they performed well our only complaint was we felt the food was not as good as we had experienced when the ship was operated by Louis Lines. All the excursions were very well done with good guides. I would do the tour again, but hopefully there would be an improvement aboard a different ship.
