Celestyal Cruises, a leading cruise line popular for its Greek Islands tours among Turkish tourists, has announced a new itinerary that ventures beyond European waters.
Starting from Kuşadası, Turkey, the cruise will cover destinations in Greece, Egypt, and Israel. The new program is set to launch in October aboard Celestyal’s latest ship, the Journey.
Özgü Alnıtemiz, the Director of Celestyal Cruises Turkey, elaborated on the new venture, stating that the cruise line, already renowned for its Greek Islands tours, aims to bring even more options to its Turkish clientele. “We’re excited to introduce the new Three-Continent program to the Turkish market aboard our newest ship, Journey,” said Alnıtemiz. “Guests can explore not only the Greek Islands but also landmarks in Egypt and Israel, all in one journey.”
This new itinerary is expected to boost not only global tourism but also specifically contribute to Turkey’s growing cruise tourism sector. Alnıtemiz emphasized, “Tourists on this multi-continent cruise will also explore Turkish ports. This aligns well with Turkey’s position as one of the key ports in global cruise tourism.”
The Journey will set sail from Kuşadası to its first stop, Athens, where passengers can explore the Acropolis and Plaka. On the fourth day, the ship will anchor in Port Said, Egypt, offering opportunities to explore Cairo and its ancient wonders. The next stop will be Ashdod Port in Israel, where passengers can tour Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and Haifa.
The seven-night tour ends back in Kuşadası, Turkey. Special promotions are being offered for the tour, with prices for an exterior cabin starting at 939 Euros per person. As part of a campaign, customers booking exterior cabins can upgrade to suite cabins at special rates.
The cruise program will continue until the end of December 2023, providing travelers with multiple options for exploring this unique Three-Continent itinerary.
