Celestyal Cruises resumes operations on May 29 from Piraeus, Athens
Celestyal Cruises has announced that its seven-night Idyllic Aegean itinerary will resume on May 29 from Piraeus, Athens.
“We are extremely encouraged by the increased global distribution and effectiveness of the vaccine and by the positive response we are receiving from our partners and guests around the world. We will continue to monitor the positive progress of the healthy reopening of both Greece and cruising while continuing to liaise with the European and Greek health authorities to ensure that we continue to provide a safe and responsible operation for our guests, crew and the communities we serve," commented Celestyal Cruises CEO, Chris Theophilides.
Guests who have already paid for the cancelled late April through May cruises will be liable for a refundable Future Cruise Credit (FCC) equal to 100 percent of the amount paid, as well as a non-refundable bonus FCC equal to 20% of the actual cruise fare paid.
As an additional measure of flexibility and in acknowledgement of the pandemic's long-term implications, Celestyal has announced that guests who already hold FCCs, as well as those who are about to collect FCCs, will be able to apply their FCCs to Celestyal's soon-to-be-announced 2023 itineraries, in addition to the 2021 and 2022 itineraries.
