Celestyal introduces new pricing model

The Greek Islands specialist has also announced a number of new destination focused itineraries for 2023/24 season

Greek Islands and Eastern Mediterranean specialist Celestyal Cruises is introducing a new two-tiered pricing model following feedback from guests and travel advisor partners.

The ‘inclusive’ fare offers complimentary dining and select drinks with meals, entertainment, daily activities, port charges and gratuities. This entry level fare also comes with a pre-bookable shore excursion discount of £65 per person.

The ‘enhanced’ tier is for those wishing to upgrade their experience, with an unlimited premium drinks package, a daily hour of complimentary wi-fi, 25 per cent discount on speciality dining and a pre-bookable shore excursion discount of £130 per person.

‘Inclusive’ experiences will cost from as little as £259, while ‘enhanced’ cruises start from £369.

There are several additional commission earning opportunities for travel advisors and discounts for guests pre-booking various drink and shore excursions packages.

Celestyal has also announced 2023/24 itineraries that stay longer in the destinations it visits, as well as adding some new stops.

The seven-night Idyllic Aegean itinerary it will now arrive early into Santorini for an extended stay, along with late departures in both Mykonos and Santorini.

The line also returns to Israel and Egypt in 2023 on the seven-night Three Continents itinerary. Meanwhile, the new five-night Legendary Aegean itinerary will launch in 2024 and visit Santorini, Rhodes and reintroduce Istanbul and the Greek island of Samos, home to the father of mathematics, Pythagoras.

“We are in constant communication with our guests and our valued travel advisor partners, and they have shared with us a desire for more flexibility and customisation,” said Celestyal’s chief commercial officer, Leslie Peden.

“We are charting a new course for Celestyal next year with a flexible pricing model that gives guests more choice and freedom in creating a truly customised holiday experience.

We are also reimagining our positioning, itineraries and shore excursion experiences to be aligned with the expectations of our guests, which is to immerse themselves in the destinations we serve.”
