Celebrity Cruises’ Captains will share their favourite Greek experiences through a new “Captain-Curated” shore excursions program, ahead of the 2022 European summer season.

Offered aboard any Celebrity ship sailing the Greek Isles during summer 2022, the cruise line says the all-new collection of unique and exclusive Captain-curated excursions is designed to ensure guests “Journey WonderFULL” and experience the destination “like a local.”

“What a dream come true for our guests to experience one of the world’s most breathtaking regions through the people who know it best – our Captains, who either grew up in Greece or have spent their career sailing to and visiting its ports,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, CEO of Celebrity Cruises.

“Celebrity Cruises has a proud Greek heritage and Greece holds a special place in our hearts that we are now uniquely sharing with our guests.”  

Celebrity Cruises is still rooted in its Greek origins today, with 70% of marine officers across the fleet hailing from Greece, including more than 40 Captains and Chief Engineers.

In addition to visiting the history of Rhodes and Thessaloniki, the distilleries and wineries of Nafplio and Corfu, or the picturesque seaside town of Chania (Crete), the all-new Captain-Curated Shore Excursions combine an iconic destination experience with a hidden gem to create the Captain’s ideal day in port.
