Itinerary

Expand All
Day 1 : Kusadasi - Patmos
Location: Kuşadası, Patmos

You adventure begins in the dynamic beach resort of Kusadasi, famous for its warm and friendly ambiance. Before you set sail with us, take the time to enjoy the scenic seafront promenade and the town's impressive Grand Bazaar to really kick start your Aegean adventure.



In the afternoon, we head to the volcanic island of Patmos with its enchanting lace-like coastline and dramatic sheer cliffs. Patmos is where John the Apostle is thought to have penned the Book of Revelation and you have the opportunity to visit the 'Cave of the Apocolypse' and monastery or indulge in a traditional feast.



Approaching the port of Skala, you can’t take your eyes off the monumental grid of medieval walls that emerge as if staking their claim over the island. Inching ever closer to Patmos island, your eyes will be drawn further down the hill to the fringes of white houses that circle Chora all the way to the pretty harbor of Skala. Stepping foot on the island of Patmos you’ll be bowled over by its ageless, touching presence – villages appear undisturbed for centuries and its natural volcanic beauty captivates and absorbs all your attention. Patmos is also steeped in history: where architecture remains testament to Greek, Roman and Byzantine influences. And legends say that St John was inspired to write the Book of Revelations here. The picturesque harbor of Skala may appear small on the outside, but a wealth of quality bakeries, shops and tavernas line the waterfront promenade tempting you to take a break and enjoy a refreshing drink. With no big towns; just secluded bays, towering cliffs and untouched landscapes, Patmos is as authentic as they come.

Day 2 : Patmos - Heraklion - Santorini
Location: Heraklion, Santorini

As we pull into Heraklion, you have the chance to snap the imposing 16-th Century walls of Koules Fortress. Here you can enjoy the calm of the stunning waterfront of opt to explore the wild side of Crete's countryside. To delve into Crete's past, take a spellbinding tour of the Palace of Knossos, which invites you to listen to tales of intrigue and learn about Europe's first civilization in the Knossos museum. Was the Minotaur half-man or myth? You're about to find out!



Cruising towards Santorini is like being swept away on a current to somewhere truly magical. You will its pull almost instantly. The island will greet you with its striking cliffs, promising adventure and legendary tales. The almost vertical towns of whitewashed houses and blue-domed churches will rise above the blue Aegean like an oasis of beauty and calm. As you leave the comforts of the ship behind, you’ll trade them for the unique indulgences of Santorini. A sense of serenity and mystery washes over you as you step off deck and make your way through the winding, narrow streets of Fira. Start your days chasing thrills at the top of a dormant volcano and end them with mojitos on cliffs overlooking sunsets that will stay with you for a lifetime. While the island is most famous for its striking landscape, Santorini provides a feast for all senses: Feel the heat of the sun under your feet as you walk along the black sand of its volcanic beaches. Savor the flavors of local products by pairing one of the island’s most famous dishes, creamy Greek fava, with a bottle of locally-produced Vinsanto wine. Listen to the calls of the seagulls and the crashing waves create a perfect harmony with the traditional music of the island. There is no doubt, you will leave Santorini with your own Greek myth.

Day 3 : Santorini - Athens - Mykonos
Location: Athens, Mykonos

The Greek Island, Mykonos, flaunts its double personality the moment you set eyes on its coastline. Basking in year-round sunshine, its rugged rocky landscape blends seamlessly with smooth sandy beaches. In the distance, undulating hills host the island’s iconic windmills turning in symphony with the seasonal winds that have branded Mykonos ‘island of the winds’. On appearance, traditional white-washed villages seem untouched by time, but delve deeper into their maze of cobbled streets and you’ll find cosmopolitan bars, exclusive boutiques and gourmet restaurants. High-energy nightlife gives way to calming, picture-perfect beaches where it’s easy to find your inner peace. And travel back through the centuries at Mykonos’ archaeological sites where you’ll encounter the Sanctuary of Apollo and many other fascinating ancient relics that reveal the island’s varied past. Then explore traditional villages such as Ano Mera where the pure white walls of Panagia Tourliani monastery appear crafted from the landscape.

Day 4 : Mykonos - Kusadasi
Location: Kusadasi

Arriving in the port of Kusadasi, Turkey you’ll instantly feel at home. A huge covered bazaar stretches out in front of you and the buzz from trendy seaside bars and restaurants floats through the air. Follow your instincts and lose track of time ambling from café to café and exploring its myriad of shops and historic sites. Find time for yourself on one of the many white sandy beaches in and around Kusadasi such as Diamond Beach, Paradise Beach or Love Beach, where you can try your hand at windsurfing or even jet skiing. And there’s no shortage of good times in Kusadasi: weather that’s always on your side, a chilled, laid-back atmosphere and ancient sites on its doorstep. In the city, itself, stroll around the Fortress of Kusadasi on Pigeon Island and discover city walls that protect historic gems such as the Fortress Mosque. But head out into the sun-soaked hills above the Aegean coast, and you’ll come across some of the most important archaeological sites in Europe.

What to Wear

The weather in the Mediterranean is mild and pleasant year-round. If you cruise with us during the warmer part of the year, from May through September, light-coloured cotton clothes will help keep you cool. You should also bring swimsuits, if you plan to swim in our pool or at one of the incredible beaches we’ll visit, as well as sunglasses and a hat which, combined with a good sunscreen, will help protect you from the Mediterranean sun. If you intend to use one of the well-equipped gyms on our ships, make sure to bring proper clothes and shoes (but don’t worry about a towel, we’ll provide it). Airconditioning is strong on the ship and because of the occasional sea breeze in the afternoon, we suggest that you also pack a light jacket or a windbreaker.Dressing for our Shore ExcursionsDuring the summer months, light-coloured cotton or sports clothes that “breathe” will help keep you cool on our excursions. Make sure that you wear comfortable shoes for all excursions. If you plan to visit the beach you’ll need a swimsuit, as well as sunglasses and a hat which, combined with comfortable shoes and a good sunscreen, will help protect you from the brilliant Mediterranean sun.If you intend visiting a religious or pilgrimage site, please dress respectfully in long trousers or a skirt that falls below the knee, and please remember to cover your shoulders.As we sail through autumn and winter, warmer clothing is recommended as temperatures will be cooler. Wind breakers and warm jackets are a good idea.AfternoonsWe do not permit bathing suits or shorts in the restaurants, but we serve a delicious lunch buffet on our pool deck every day, where you can enter wearing short pants or bermudas.Evening wearYour attire should be Jacket and Tie for the gentlemen and elegant outfit for the ladies. No shorts or bathing suits will be accepted in the indoor restaurants after 6.00pm.Dress upOn each Celestyal cruise we host several themed nights such as White night, famous Greek night, where passengers are invited to wear blue and white (the colours of the Greek flag). During our 7 night and 4 night cruises there is a Gala night including Captain’s cocktail and Ship’s Officers’ presentation, where passengers are suggested to attend in formal dress: a cocktail dress or something smart for the ladies, smart casual attire for the gentlemen. Remember the photographer will be there to capture the moment. Check your daily program for a schedule of all evening events.FootwearFor your safety and comfort on board we suggest sports, flat deck shoes with low heels or sandals.These types of footwear will make it easier for you to navigate the cruise ship decks and stairwells. Please do not walk barefoot on the open decks. AccessoriesYou’ll need a hat, sunglasses, a bathing suit, sandals and perhaps a small umbrella. Why not visit our on board shops where you will be able to buy suntan oil, eye protection, bathing suits among other goods? If you have forgotten your camera at home, rest assured that our excellent photographers on board will shoot incredible photos and videos for you.

Wonderful Experience

30-Sep-2022

This cruise visits all the most sought-after islands in 7 days. I could not believe how efficient they were. We left our hotel in central Athens at 12 noon and were on the ship by 12:45. We had booked a Junior Balcony suite and were upgraded to a full Balcony Suite. Large living area, separate bedroom and a very large balcony. 2 excursions were included, and we booked 4 others. The ship is not large meaning you are never far from where you want to go. We went to most of the evening shows and the team of dancers, singers and acrobats were excellent. The El Greco band were versatile and excellent as well. There seemed to be a lot of staff and they were very friendly and helpful. Many had worked there for years. The room was made up twice a day and the attendants were great. Breakfast buffet was always excellent. Lunch and dinner buffets could have had greater variety. The excursions and dis-embarkment were all punctual and managed very professionally. The ship is not fancy by any means but runs smoothly with a great level of personal service. We were very pleased.

I just returned from a Greece/Turkey and had a great time

05-May-2022

I just returned from a Greece/Turkey tour on Celestyal and I had a great experience. It was very well organized and the staff were excellent from the cabin attendant to the dining room staff. I upgraded to a suite and it was well worth it. The room was even prettier than the pictures.

Couldn't fault this cruise - great value for money

15-Jun-2022

I couldn’t fault this cruise line and I have cruised on Viking, RC, NCL and Celebrity lines in the past. Reading other reviews I was expecting the ship to be worn and tired and found this not to be the case. Whilst it doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of some of the larger ships, being a smaller ship made it a much more personal trip and very good value for money. It was spotlessly clean, with excellent food in variety, freshness, presentation, and taste. The staff were fantastic with exceptional service and good to see them enjoying themselves and their work. The evening shows were spectacular – considering it’s a small stage the choreography was brilliant to utilise the space. Great that you get 2 excursions included. I only did the Kusadasi excursions as had already been to Rhodes. The guide was knowledgeable, and I had time to shop/get ice cream at the end. Definitely upgrade to the platinum drinks package – at 27 euros a day its well worth it. This included special coffees including decaff, freshly squeezed orange juice, all the smoothies, champagne, top brand liquors, all cocktails and included bottled water and all soft drinks. I had spa treatments and my hair done, and both were excellent and for less money than I spend at home and it was the same price whether you were in port or at sea. Musicians in the bars were outstanding – great voices - and many got up and danced to their songs. Only looked into the casino (which was small), the gym (small but adequate equipment - I preferred the gym junkie smoothy to actually working out!) and the disco (but didn’t stay) so can’t comment on these.. Ironing was great value and quick. Within a couple of hours a whole bag of ironing had been done for Euros 15.95 – perfect when first getting on board to ensure wrinkle free clothes. Enjoyed the cakes and biscuits in the afternoon and the savoury nibbles in the bars after the show. – the pork ribs and spring rolls were gorgeous. Various activities throughout the day taking place if you prefer to stay on the ship including bingo, cookery demonstrations, cocktail making, the price is right, dancing lessons, darts, ping pong. kids craft/games area, Greek lessons and different seminars.

A great experience!

01-Oct-2022

My wife and I took a 7-night idyllic Aegean cruise with Celestyal Cruises in October 2022, and it has been one of the best cruises we have ever taken! The ship (Celestyal Crystal), was not overcrowded, the stateroom (Junior Suite with balcony) was very good, the food was great, free drinks were available with no waiting time, the excursions were well organized and very interesting, the staff was friendly and efficient. Before the cruse started, I called several times the customer service with questions and requests - all my questions were answered and requests granted! A great experience!

An absolute pleasure

31-Oct-2022

This was our first experience of sea cruising and it was an absolute pleasure. Everything aboard the Celestyal Crystal was well-organised and the ship had a lovely atmosphere. She was very attractively furnished in all the public areas that we saw and our cabin was beautiful. The various lounges and open air decks made for comfortable opportunities from which to view surrounding scenery. All the staff that we encountered were very approachable, attentive and efficient; nothing was too much trouble. We ate in the buffet and two of the restaurants and the food was delicious in all. The participatory activities were interesting and varied. The musical entertainments and the evening shows were of a very high standard with amazingly talented performers. We enjoyed both the organised excursions as well as going ashore on our own. A huge thank you to all involved for their dedication to creating a first-class experience.
