Authentic Greek hospitality is at the centre of Celestyal Cruises’ 800 activities and events during its 2016 season.
Three themes will be running through all the cruises: Stories of Greek Culture and Heritage, Stories of Greek Summer Festival and Stories of Greek Food and Wine. More than 1,000 experts will help to “tell” these stories, says Celestyal Cruises CEO Kyriakos Anastassiadis.
“In 2016, Celestyal Cruises goes deeper into the authentic Greek experience we give our passengers and proudly presents thematic cruises, which we believe contribute to the global promotion of Hellenism and Greek tourism,” she adds.
“We see again and again that our passengers who participate in our themed cruise programme become the best ambassadors of Greece in their home countries!

Stories of Greek culture and heritage will take centre stage in March, April and May with theatrical performances and cultural events organised exclusively for Celestyal passengers.
Many of these events will be performed by the famous Lyceum Club of Greek Women, including stories such as the Minoan civilization, the ancient Olympics, Greek mythology, Greek drama and Greek philosophy.
June, July and August will focus on Stories of Greek Summer Festival, a concept invented by the ancient Greeks.
