Celestyal Cruises has launched a trade-only holiday brand offering tailormade packages with regional flights, pre- and post-cruise stays and sailings.

Celestyal Holidays packages are fully protected by flight consolidator Aviate’s ATOL licence and offer ‘generous rates of commission’, the Greek and Mediterranean cruise line said.

And to mark the launch, agents will earn £20 The Real Greek restaurant voucher for every Celestyal Holidays package booked by the end of next month.

Every booking made in the same period will be entered into a prize draw to win two tickets to Mamma Mia! The Party at the O2 with an overnight stay in London or a fam trip place on Celestyal Journey (pictured).

New Chief Commercial Officer Lee Haslett said the brand’s launch showed Celestyal’s commitment to the UK market.

Prices for the line’s three-night Iconic Aegean cruise, with return flights to Athens, a two-night pre-cruise stay at Coco-Mat Hotel in Athens, a one-night post-cruise stay at The Melia Athens and private transfers, start from £800, based on the departure on 1 November, 2023.  

The lead-in price for Celestyal’s seven-night Idyllic Aegean cruise packaged up with return flights Athens, a one-night pre-cruise stay at The Alex in Piraeus and private transfers is £1,400, based on the departure on 7 July, 2023.

Lee said: “Travel agents love our product, but they want to the ability to book Celestyal packages complete with flights and pre- and post-hotel stays.

“The launch of Celestyal Holidays not only demonstrates our commitment to the UK market, but offers our agent partners exactly what they have been asking for – tailormade packages that are simple to book, are great value for money, pay competitive commission and are fully protected.”

The 1,260-passenger Celestyal ship debuts in September this year.

The ship was originally built as the Ryndam for Holland America Line but has been operating for P&O Cruises Australia before it was bought by Celesytal.

Before entering service for Celestyal, it will undergo a €20 million refurbishment.
