Celestyal Expands Partnership with Ark of the World to Support Refugees from Ukraine

ATHENS – Celestyal Cruises, the award-winning, number one choice for travelers to the Greek Islands and the Eastern Mediterranean, has expanded its ongoing partnership with Athens-based Ark of the World, a non-profit organization committed to providing care and protection to children who come from single-parent families or are without parents and who experience difficult circumstances, neglect, abandonment, lack of medical care, and an uncertain future.

From June 20-25, Celestyal hosted 40 refugees, mothers and children from Ukraine, onboard a cruise on the Celestyal Olympia, so they could experience destinations in their “home away from home,” such as Ancient Ephesus, Patmos, Rhodes, Heraklion and Santorini. The educational cruise provided the children with the opportunity to visit key landmarks, monuments, archaeological sites, and taste the local flavors, while also enjoying other recreational on-board activities.
