Year 2022

 With rates starting from EUR190 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 is a pre-/post-cruise package a good idea?

  • It serves as a "safety-cushion" in case of flight delays or other unforeseen circumstances.
  • It includes pre-arranged transfers from your hotel to the pier and back.
    No hassle, no carrying around heavy luggage in public means of transportation and absolute safety in the CoVid-19 era!

Loved the Celestyal Crystal! The perfect size cruise ship to provide you with all the comforts, yet with the intimacy to provide excellent service, manageable shore tours, and dining without waits. We were fortunate enough to have a wonderful suite and the service was terrific. We loved the foods and wines available in the ala carte restaurant.
