7 day Cruise – 6 Greek islands and Istanbul
with Celestyal Cruises

All the paperwork is done, you took the necessary pictures with our mascot, you got on board, found your luggage at the door of your cabin and decided to explore the ship before departure. Now you are enjoying your coffee in one of the ship's decks. The siren signals the ship's departure and you know you are about to experience an amazing cruise in eastern Mediterranean. The cruise of a lifetime!

The first destination is Istanbul, with the incredible culture, the imposing monuments, the undeniable charm and the mazy souks. Your eyes witness scattered architectural jewels from the Byzantine and the Ottoman era, awaiting for you to explore, touch and feel. From the cosmopolitan town of Kusadasi and after you have visited the local indoor souk you can't miss the town of Ancient Ephesus. At a mere distance of 19 kilometers, it's definitely worth visiting this well preserved ancient city, which is one of the biggest open archaeological museums of the world.

The rugged, almost primitive beauty of Santorini will bedazzle you from the moment we will reach the famous Caldera. You will then discover the magic of the black rock beaches, the cave houses, the lighthouses and the steep cliffs that submerge into the azure waters that sparkle under the hot Mediterranean sun. You will feel it! In the beautiful town of Agios Nikolaos you will experience the warm Cretan hospitality and have the chance to visit the scenic villages of the prefecture of Lasithi, the monasteries and the famous islet of Spinalonga.

After the earthy Cretan aura you will travel back to Medieval times in Rhodes! Knights, palaces, well preserved citadels and a history of 2,400 years that still excites and intrigues thousands of visitors. The next destination is the charming islet of Symi, whose capital resembles a theatrical stage. A stage filled with traditional settlements, mansions and a rich maritime history.

Chios, which is allegedly the birthplace of Christopher Columbus, Homer and many others, is the most divinely fragrant island of eastern Aegean, with the mastic trees and the vineyards, the well preserved medieval villages and the lovely, secluded, pristine beaches. Before you bid goodbye to all the friends you 've made during the cruise, in our lounges, casino and restaurants, you will have the opportunity to see the famous island of Mykonos. See up close the iconic windmills, take a stroll in the narrow cobblestoned streets that lead to traditional settlements and the port, see the dazzling white, boxy houses, Little Venice and the ever famous Cycladic sunset. Have a safe trip and Welcome aboard!
