7-day Eclectic Aegean cruise
The 7-day Eclectic Aegean cruise combines some all time classic destinations with some new, fascinating ones in a balanced and well-paced itinerary. It offers long stays at most ports of call, thus allowing time for exploration without stress.
The cruise begins and ends in Piraeus, the largest port in the Mediterranean and the gateway to Athens with all its magnificent classical monuments.
In between come a number of delightful ports of call: Istanbul (overnight stay), an enchanting, vibrant city, a feast for the eyes but also for the taste buds; Thessaloniki, the crossroad of Balkan & Aegean civilizations; Volos, which is very close to the UNESCO site of Meteora, the second largest monastic community in Greece with its awe inspiring scenery and invaluable Byzantine treasures; Canakkale in Turkey, another new destination, from where one can visit historical locations like Troy and Gallipoli.
On top of all that, the cruise makes a full day stop at Santorini, whose breathtaking landscape has brought the island at the highest positions in innumerable lists as the most popular, romantic and sought after destination in the world!
Celestyal Cruises has announced the further suspension of all its sailings for the year 2020. The prevailing uncertainty regarding travel restrictions coupled with the continuing discussions at the European Union level regarding the enhanced health protocols, led to this decision. Cruise operations will resume in the already announced 2021 season, commencing March 2021.
