CELESTYAL CRUISES

CELESTYAL CRUISES

Founded in the early 1970s as Louis Cruises, today Celestyal Cruises is the preeminent cruise line for the Greek Islands and Turkey. The company operates a fleet of five ships, three sailing from the two major ports of Athens, Piraeus and Lavrion, and Limassol. From Piraeus and Lavrion, Celestyal Cruises sails to Chios, Crete, Ios, Kos, Milos, Mykonos, Patmos, Rhodes, Samos, Santorini, Symi and Syros, and to the Turkish ports of Bodrum, Cesme, Istanbul and Kusadasi.

In addition to Piraeus and Lavrion, the passengers can create their own stay & cruise vacations, with embarkation for three-, four- and seven-day cruises from Kusadasi, Istanbul or Heraklion, Crete. Two of the company’s ships, the “Thomson Spirit” and “Thomson Majesty,” are under charter to Thomson Cruises of TUI AG. Celestyal Cruises’ strategic alliances with leading tour operators such as TUI AG have significantly strengthened its position in the international cruising market.

In 2011 the company became a member of Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), a worldwide cruise industry alliance that promotes a safe, secure and healthy cruise ship environment. It was named “Passenger Line of the Year” during the annual Lloyds List Greek Shipping Awards in 2010 and has twice been the recipient of the Condé Nast Travelers Choice Award. In 2005, Costakis Loizou, Executive Chairman of Louis Group, was awarded the prestigious European Pioneer Award by the International Society of Hospitality Consultants for making an outstanding contribution to the industry by bringing cruising to a greater number of tourists.

Celestyal Cruises is proud of its Hellenic identity. The Eastern Mediterranean is its home, and it is the only cruise line that gives its passengers an authentic Greek cruise experience. Its smaller, cozy vessels give access to a number of harbors inaccessible to larger ships, which means they can bring the passengers to many of the region’s smaller islands, the little jewels of the Aegean.

Celestyal Cruises was named “Passenger Line of the Year” during the annual Lloyds List Greek Shipping Awards in 2010 and has twice been the recipient of the Condé Nast Travelers Choice Award, in 2009 and 2010.
