Share this:

Celestyal has launched its 2025 cruise programme.

On sale now, five itineraries are on offer across 113 departures, taking in destinations such as Greece, Italy, Egypt, Turkey, Croatia, and Montenegro.

Departures range between three and fourteen nights, sailing from April to October 2025, on the 1,266-guest Celestyal Discovery and 1,260-guest Celestyal Journey. Further departure dates will be released in the new year.

The programme includes two variations of the newly launched seven-night Heavenly Adriatic sailing, on Celestyal Journey.

The route, which debuts on March 2, 2024, has proved so popular with guests it will now be a permanent deployment feature.

In March, April and October 2025, the Heavenly Adriatic itinerary will head from Greece to Montenegro, Croatia, and Italy, with maiden calls at Kefalonia, Dubrovnik, Kotor, Corfu, Bari and Katakolo.

The July and August 2025 sailings also feature a maiden call to Venice. Prices start from £499pp.

Celestyal’s current winter promotion offers huge savings with prices for a three-night cruise to Mykonos, Kusadasi, Patmos, Heraklion, and Santorini starting from £209pp.

A seven-night cruise to Mykonos, Kusadasi, Patmos, Rhodes, Heraklion, and Santorini leads in from £319pp.

Elsewhere, Celestyal has renamed its onboard package offerings with immediate effect. Guests can now choose from two simple options:

  • The Celestyal Experience – previously known as the Inclusive cruise fare. The package includes all onboard dining, select drinks with meals – including tea, filtered coffee, house wines, draft beer, and juices – all onboard entertainment, a £65 shore excursion discount, all gratuities and port charges.
  • The Celestyal Plus+ Experience – previously known as the Enhanced Cruise Fare. The package includes all onboard meals, with a 25% discount in either of the two speciality restaurants onboard, premium drinks with meals, all onboard entertainment, a £130 shore excursion discount, onboard WIFI, all gratuities and port charges.

As part of the winter promotion, Celestyal is offering 50% off all Celestyal Plus+ Experience packages, along with reduced single supplements of just 30% and low child fares, with up to 70% off the third or fourth guest in a cabin.

Lee Haslett, Chief Commercial Officer at Celestyal, said: “We are constantly listening to both our agent partners and our customers.

“We regularly challenge ourselves on how we can do more to delight our guests and be the best supplier to do business with.

“Our Heavenly Adriatic itinerary has been a real hit, in fact, we are almost sold out for the first cruise of the season, so it will now feature more heavily in our 2025 itineraries.

“We know our customers want to book further in advance, and love visiting the Greek islands as well as wanting to discover a wider choice of destinations, so we’re pleased to kick off 2024 with a completely refreshed fleet, the launch of our 2025 programme and imminent release of our 2026 programme.

“Our fleet of new ships takes guests right into the heart of a destination, offering an outstanding range of tours and local experiences.

“And with our new simplified packages available to enhance guests’ time onboard and add to agent commission, plus several exciting new itineraries yet to be announced, there’s never been a better time to book with Celestyal.”

Celestyal Journey and Celestyal Discovery both joined the fleet this year. The ships will undergo multimillion-euro winter refurbishment programmes in Athens ahead of their new seasons, which start in March 2024.
