This weekend saw the new North Star of the Celestyal fleet, Celestyal Journey, set sail on her maiden voyage around the Aegean, cruising in the expert hands of industry veteran, captain Angelos Vassilakos.

Departing from Piraeus, Athens on Saturday, 02 September, Celestyal Journey’s first guests are now enjoying her inaugural seven-night “Idyllic Aegean” itinerary continuing the company’s ethos of truly immersing guests deep into the destination culture, visiting Thessaloniki, Kusadasi, Heraklion (Crete), Santorini, Mykonos, and Milos.

Celestyal’s CEO, Chris Theophilides comments: On 02 September, we successfully launched a new direction to our Celestyal product offering, as we celebrated our newest ship, Celestyal Journey, taking to the seas.  It’s an extremely exciting time for us at Celestyal as we continue our investment into the fleet, with this occasion marking the start of a new chapter in the company’s vision to offer a new premium stay-in-style experience”.
