The Greek archipelago is home to more than 3,000 islands. For more than three decades, however, cruising in the Greek seas has only focused on the same few popular islands, whose unquestionable beauty has earned them a deserved, permanent position on most itineraries.
As a destination-oriented cruise line and the foremost global Ambassador for Hellenic cruising, Celestyal Cruises is the Eastern Mediterranean’s local specialist, the only cruise line that can introduce passengers from all over the world to dazzling new gems in the Aegean, islands whose authenticity and unspoilt beauty will leave them breathless. These undiscovered jewels are why we launched our Idyllic Cruises in 2014, which were immensely popular with new and returning passengers.
Taken from the definition of “idyllic
,” which means “blissful” and “picturesque,” our Idyllic Aegean itineraries are truly blissful – we sail our passengers to some of the most stunning and fascinating destinations in this ancient, beloved sea.
Unspoilt by development, the islands of Chios, Ios, Kos, Milos, Samos and Syros are new windows to the unique, magical beauty of Greece, while Cesme, in Turkey, welcomes its guests with a colourful blend of ancient history and modern glamour.
