Day Port Due Depart
1 Fly from the UK
1 Athens (Piraeus)
Athens (Piraeus)
Athens offers a blend of traditional Greek culture and modern hustle and bustle. The Acropolis and Parthenon are not to be missed.
PM
2-3 Mykonos Town, Mykonos
Mykonos Town, Mykonos
Mykonos is a beautiful Greek island famed for its natural beauty, rich history and cosmopolitan character.
AM AM
3 Milos PM PM
4-5 Thira, Santorini
Thira, Santorini
Santorini is the very essence of Greek charm. Sugar-cube houses cling to the cliffs. Vivid blue church domes add a splash of colour. And steep cliff-sides tumble into an impossibly clear sea. Just beautiful. Sample the wine or the cliff top views, the terraced bars and restaurants or the ancient Roman ruins on Santorini.
AM PM
6 Heraklion, Crete
Heraklion, Crete
A city of contrasts, where old meets new, Byzantine churches sit in harmony against a modern skyline.
AM PM
7 Ephesus (Kusadasi)
Ephesus (Kusadasi)
Visit the Hellenistic and Roman city of Ephesus, founded in the 13th century BC. The site was first excavated in 1869 by British archaeologist, J T Wood and visitors can now see many of the Roman remains. One of the attractions of Ephesus is the fact that so much of it remains intact and little imagination is required to picture what the Roman city would have looked like.
AM PM
8 Athens (Piraeus)
Athens (Piraeus)
Athens offers a blend of traditional Greek culture and modern hustle and bustle. The Acropolis and Parthenon are not to be missed.

Excellent itinerary ship although dated was in good order The staff were helpful and friendly particularly on reception and resolved a cabin issue on arrival Bar staff were friendly but slow and inattentive on occasion necessitating us going to the bar to order a drink Excursions which were included were of excellent standard with excellent guides Food very good Disappointed that it was not acceptable to order double spirits Entertainment was very good regardless of being a small company Overall excellent value for money and would certainly use them again

We saw amazing staff including Danny the cruise director he was excellent and all of the staff worked hard. One of the officers in charge of the catering the restaurant and bar area on floor 5 at quite a well built man was really horrible to his staff in public it was humiliating for all concerned and he needs retaining due to his inability to mama few people properly this reflected badly on. Him and on then comapany. We were disappointed with the standard of the bathroom in the cabin and quality of fitting staff eg a broken lampshade etc. The hairdryer wiring looked very old Cali g and no sign of any testing for electrical safety to reassure us. Spare pillows on arrival were dirty and had no pillowcase. The food was a bit disappointing we saw how hard the crew worked so no fault there but quality of meats and products used limited their abilities to produce a nice meal. We felt that the day when we couldn’t dock in Milos was badly managed as we were informed on arrival that that day three days away was looking likely to be windy weather , I can’t believe with technology that they couldn’t ring ahead to find out if the tenders would work. We ended up with only a few hours on Syros which was a lovely island we could have had more of a day there. The theatre group tried hard but the entertainment became a bit repetitious so we didn’t go every night where on other cruise we have done was really different every night. It would be good to have some information about the islands ps given out as did other cruises to help you find your way around. On shore , it felt that there was constant trying to sell you a tour which were we felt very expensive. The three trips included were very good very much appreciated and excellent coaches and guides provided. Our last trip in turkey was spoilt by the hard sell from the carpet sellers who were pestering and following us about it was very harassing I think you need to review that part of the trip it was not pleasant and spoilt the day. I would like an apology for that from the company as you put us in that position. The all inclusive drinks etc the policy of you can only have one drink at a time was again silly when we wanted a coffee and brandy in the evening after our meal we were told we couldn’t have this at same time silly and reflected again on not doing what the customer requests , there was nothing in the small print that said you can’t have a coffee and drink together. It would also be nice if the self serve coffee and tea was available 24 hours a day again annoying when I wanted a really cup of tea. Would we go again with Celestryl I think probably not . There were some good bits and we made the most of it but we have had a better experience with other companies so you do compare .the places seen were great and it ticked the box for that but if had chance awe aim would use a different company on reflection from coming home, It isn’t little things you can change that would make the experience better We are happy to discuss any comments about this feedback

If you are looking for high end cruising this is not the boat. The boat is tired and the cabins very small. Food acceptable. However staff service in every area is excellent. We chose this cruise for its itinerary and its many ports of call rather than for spending time on board. This suited our needs on this particular holiday. Smaller ship is better and less formality.
