Celestyal has unveiled three new countries and six new ports for 2024 and 2025 and is offering a free cruise to all existing customers on updated itineraries.

Those three new countries? Croatia, Montenegro and Italy. And the six new ports are Kefalonia, Katakolo and Corfu in Greece; Dubrovnik in Croatia; Kotor in Montenegro and Bari in Italy.

 The Celestyal Journey will commence her season on March 2, 2024, with a brand-new cruise itinerary, the 7-night Heavenly Adriatic, featuring full days in Kefalonia, Kotor, Bari and Corfu, as well as a late-night stay in Dubrovnik. This new 2024 voyage is now on sale as part of Celestyal’s holiday promotion with special deals from $579 per person, for bookings made from now through Nov. 30, 2023. Sailings for 2025 will be available for sale in the coming weeks.

In addition to the new Heavenly Adriatic cruise, Celestyal will update two further sailings in 2024, replacing the Three Continents itineraries on March 9 and 16, with the Idyllic Aegean itinerary, departing Athens, and calling at Thessaloniki, Kusadasi, Heraklion, Mykonos, Santorini and Milos, before returning to Athens. This updated 2024 itinerary is also featured in the holiday promotion with special deals from $679 per person.

Celestyal is rewarding guests already booked on the Celestyal Journey itineraries departing Athens on March 2, 9, 16, 2024, with not only the lower promotional rates, but a free Three Continents cruise on the Celestyal network. The Three Continents cruise offer can be redeemed by the guest over the next three years.

“Less than a week from announcing our recent acquisition and complete fleet refresh, we couldn’t help ourselves by going a little bit further for our customers. As a business, we really do take the time to listen to customer and agent network suggestions—and Italy, Croatia and Montenegro came out on top,” said Lee Haslett, chief commercial officer, in a press release statement.

“We really do listen and challenge ourselves to continually keep ahead of our customers’ needs. This is why we want to reward our loyal customers by matching the promotional fares on these new sailings, and by offering a sensational free Celestyal cruise voucher as a thank you for their unwavering support. We are committed to not only our customers but also our travel partners, so will of course be preserving agent commission on all rebooked cruises.

“We are more than finding our sea legs on a global stage and fast becoming known as a confident challenger brand,” Haslett added. “Our team is set to make waves across the industry next season, with new destinations, a completely updated fleet, a fresh new brand identity and a renewed sense of direction.”

Travel partners currently holding reservations on the updated March 2024 itineraries will be contacted by Celestyal over the coming days and reaccommodated on the updated sailings on the newly refurbished Celestyal Journey, or another suitable option. Guests that retain their booking dates on the updated itineraries in March will be eligible for the free cruise offer, which can be booked on applicable sailings over the next three years.

All agent commissions will be preserved on these retained bookings, as well as any reaccommodated bookings.
