Celestyal Cruises Philosophy

If there’s one word you should know when boarding a Celestyal Cruises it’s philoxenia. Literally translated —”friend to the stranger”, the word’s meaning refers to the genuine hospitality extended to visitors by Greek people, and is a pervasive philosophy of any Celestyal Cruises experience.

About Celestyal Cruises

Celestyal Cruises is a small cruise line with only three ships, all of which cruise out of Athens. The company has earned numerous awards and recognitions, including the 2022 British Travel Award for Best Company for Short Sea/ Mini Cruises, and the Tourism Awards Gold medal in 2021.

Their human-size ships take guests to sites that are often inaccessible to most big cruise boats, while authentic onshore experiences scratch beneath the surface, getting guests closer to the warm heart of local communities.

Celestyal Journey is the newest ship in the fleet, and will debut a new look in September 2023 but plans are there for a spa and gym, updated décor, seven restaurants and an exclusive Chef’s Table, and 630 modernized staterooms and suites, many with balconies and ocean views.
