Celestyal Cruises offers free travel insurance including COVID-19 coverageCelestyal’s first sailing of the 2021 season will be on March 6

To provide guests with additional peace of mind as they look towards returning to cruising,  Celestyal Cruises, the award-winning, number one choice for cruise travelers to the Greek Islands and the Eastern Mediterranean, has announced that it will provide complimentary travel insurance for all new, individual bookings made from now through November 30, 2020, for March-June 2021 sailings.  The included policy is provided by Allianz Global Assistance and includes coverage of medical/hospitalization expenses, including those associated with COVID-19. Coverage includes transportation costs to the nearest hospital and travel costs to the next port of call, if required, as well as travel expenses to return home due to illness if required, and reimbursement for any unused portion of a cruise. For an additional fee, guests can opt to upgrade their policy to also include trip cancellation coverage.

Celestyal’s first sailing of the 2021 season will be on March 6 on board its new flagship, the Celestyal Experience, with the seven-night “Three Continents” itinerary calling on Greece (Athens and Rhodes), Turkey (Kusadasi),  Israel (Ashdod), Egypt (Port Said) and Cyprus (Limassol).  Beginning on April 03, 2021 the Celestyal Experience will set sail on the seven-night “Idyllic Aegean” itinerary visiting Athens, Rhodes, Crete (Agios Nikolaos), Santorini, Milos, Mykonos and Kusadasi (Ephesus). For a limited period, all-inclusive launch pricing starts at just $699 per person for an Inside Stateroom and the new Sana Wellness Junior Suites at just $1,849 per person.  Celestyal has also reduced the deposit required to just $199 per stateroom.

Celestyal Cruises has also added extra departures to the special seven-night “Steps of Paul” itinerary due to popular demand, which traces the footsteps of St. Paul, the Apostle, across the Mediterranean with departures on October 16 and November 13, 2021. Additionally, it has introduced an amended seven-night “Eclectic Aegean” itinerary to maximize time ashore and to offer Thessaloniki as a new embarkation/disembarkation port which is the second largest city in Greece with a rich cultural and culinary heritage being the gateway to the land of Alexander the Great, stellar nightlife, and laid-back authenticity. The seven-night ‘Eclectic Aegean’ has departures between October 23 and November 6, 2021.

“We are extremely optimistic about the future of cruising and are truly excited to introduce our guests to our newest addition to the fleet, the Celesytal Experience. We recognize that concerns surrounding the pandemic still exist, and we want to help put our guests at ease when booking with us for voyages during the first half of next year. Thus we’re proud to be one of the first in cruising to offer complimentary COVID travel insurance coverage along with very attractive all-inclusive introductory pricing to help restore their confidence in booking that dream vacation that they likely had to put on hold this past year as a result of the pandemic,” said Leslie Peden, chief commercial officer, Celestyal Cruises.

The Celestyal Experience has a capacity of up to 1,800-guests in 789 staterooms, 166 of which feature balconies, sea terraces and bridge-view verandas. The Celestyal Experience which has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment will offer an intimate onboard guest experience with all the warmth of traditional Greek hospitality. The ship is also well-suited for visiting smaller ports, a key differentiator for Celestyal, with destinations that remain off-limits to larger vessels.

The Celestyal Experience features a range of experiences for guests of all ages including four specialty restaurants, seven bars and lounges, two pools, two Jacuzzis, a beach club, sundeck, jogging track and state-of-the art two-deck panoramic Sana Wellness Spa. Rounding out the “Celestyal Experience” will be nightly entertainment, a casino, library, meeting rooms, and onboard boutiques, all topped off with a unique, specialty wine and cheese bar that will serve as a tribute to Mediterranean wines and cheeses.
