Logo of Celestyal CruisesList of cruises operated by Celestyal Cruises (former “Louis Cruises”) in Greece (Greek islands in the Aegean Sea) and Turkey (Kusadasi / Ancient Ephesus).

Most of them are circular cruises departing from 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 800 cabins each, 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 and the grandiose ancient city of Ephesus, unique samples of world-defining civilizations.
