Celestyal’s newly launched Celestyal Journey will visit three new countries and six new ports as part of its maiden 2024 itinerary.

The 1,260-guest ship, which entered service in September this year, will call for the first time at Croatia, Montenegro and Italy from Greece, with maiden calls to Kefalonia, Dubrovnik, Kotor, Corfu, Bari and Katakolo.

The new 7-night ‘Heavenly Adriatic’ will set sail on March 2 and feature full days in each destination, as well as a late-night stay in Dubrovnik.

The itinerary will appear again in 2025, with details to be confirmed in due course.

Celestyal has also confirmed that Celestyal Journey will sail its 7-night ‘Idyllic Aegean’ itinerary on March 9 and March 16.

Departing roundtrip from Athens, the ship will call at Thessaloniki, Kusadasi, Heraklion, Mykonos, Santorini and Milos.

Celestyal Journey will then embark on a series of Aegean voyages up to December. The updated itineraries replace the previous ‘Three Continents’ route the ship was due to sail on.

Celestyal is switching pre-booked guests to the new voyages at current promotional rates, and giving them a free ‘Three Continents’ cruise to thank them for their loyalty.

The Celestyal trade team is liaising with agents who have customers set to travel with the updated information.

Lee Haslett, Chief Commercial Officer at Celestyal, said: “We really do take the time to listen to feedback, and Italy, Croatia and Montenegro are consistently popular with the trade and our guests.

“These itineraries are ideal for anyone looking to discover new horizons with more than a dash of history, culture and beauty.

“And we couldn’t help ourselves by going a little bit further for our customers, so hope they enjoy their free cruise as a thank you for their unwavering support.

“We are equally committed to our travel partners, so will be preserving agent commission on all rebooked cruises.”

Travel partners currently holding reservations on the updated March 2024 itineraries will be contacted by Celestyal over the coming days, so they can reaccommodate customers on the updated sailings on Celestyal Journey or another suitable option.

Guests who retain their booking dates on the March itineraries will be eligible for the free cruise offer, which can be applied to equivalent sailings over the next three years.

All agent commissions will be preserved on retained and re-accommodated bookings.

The updated cruises are available as part of Celestyal’s Black Friday promotions. The ‘Heavenly Adriatic’ is on sale from £449pp and the ‘Idyllic Aegean’ from £529pp.
