“When travelers sail with Celestyal Cruises, they expect a real, authentic Greek experience, and that’s exactly what our themed cruises are designed to do,” says Nicholas Filippidis, Director of Product Development in North America for Celestyal Cruises. “We’re pleased to present a comprehensive calendar of 64 themed cruises in 2015 designed to provide an immersion into the best of Greece, an invitation to live ‘Kalimera’ with us.”
“Each sailing has immense added value with a unique, themed cruise program that takes travelers deeper into the culture, cuisine, history, mythology, archaeological sites, centuries-old local customs, song and dance, and much more. Celestyal Cruises is the only home porting cruise line in Greece – the Aegean is our home, and the world-renowned hospitality of the people of Greece is at the core of everything we do,” continued Filippidis.
The line’s 64 themed cruises are designed to take travelers deeper into breathtaking destinations, to share the incredible centuries-old stories. After extensive research, the new themed cruises have been developed to include something for everyone. Plus, these unique enhancements are all included in the price of the cruise.
“We know our travelers want to do more than just visit unique destinations; they want to experience it like a local. They want to taste the authentic flavors and see how traditional Greek dishes are prepared. They want to walk among the archeological marvels from ancient times and they want to hear the sounds of this storied land first-hand. This is what our cruises offer and much more.”
With such a vast array of themed cruises to choose from, travelers can opt to: hear the unique sound of bouzouki and the other authentic Greek instruments while dancing the night away; follow the course of Greece over more than four millennia, through Greek songs, dances, myths and more; enjoy an authentic Greek culinary experience, emphasizing the cuisine of the Aegean, via seminars, interactive cooking demonstrations and tastings, all drawn from the local cuisine of each Louis Cruises destination; celebrate Greek wines and spirits with more than 4,000 years of rich history to savor… All of this and much more awaits travelers on Celestyal Cruises’ themed cruises.
