ATHENS — Greek company Celestyal Cruises announced the purchase of a new ship, "Celestyal Experience", that will launch cruises to the Greek islands on March 6, 2021.

Celestyal Experience will run seven-night cruises under the theme "Three Continents". The ship will depart Piraeus for the ports of Rhodes, Kusadasi (Ephesus, Turkey), Ashdod (Israel), Port Said (Egypt) and Limassol (Cyprus).

On April 3, 2021, Celestyal Experience will start offering the seven-night "Idyllic Aegean" cruise, from Piraeus to Rhodes, Crete (Agios Nikolaos), Santorini, Milos, Mykonos and Kusadasi.

The recently renovated Celestyal Experience ship has a capacity of up to 1,800 passengers and 789 cabins, 160 of which have a balcony or large terraces.

"Although it was an extremely demanding and difficult year for everyone," Celestyal Cruises CEO Chris Theofilidis said, "we are optimistic about the future of the travel industry, and especially about cruises. We are excited to add the Celestyal Experience to our fleet, as this cruiseship will change the cruise experience offered by our company, and we look forward to presenting it to our guests."
