Celestyal Cruises is the main home-porting cruise operator in Greece and the preeminent cruise line serving the Greek Islands and East Mediterranean. The company operates two mid-sized vessels, each one cosy enough to provide genuine and highly-personalized services. The foundation of the company’s philosophy is the ‘destination.’ Every cruise focuses on true cultural immersion, offering authentic, lifetime experiences both on board and on shore wherever its vessels sail.
Small Ship Cruises and Yachts
PONANT’s ships have been purposefully designed to welcome a limited number of guests: with 32 to 132 staterooms, our 9 ships offer comfort comparable to the very finest luxury hotels.
Unlike the giant ships of other cruise companies, this philosophy gives our ships a more welcoming feel and a unique atmosphere. It also enables our ships to access original and quieter ports of call, guaranteeing exclusive cruises and attentive and personalised service for all our guests.
OUR SHIPS – EXCEPTIONAL DESTINATIONS
From Antarctic ice to Pacific lagoons, Mediterranean coves to Asian shores, PONANT has sailed through every sea on the planet for nearly thirty years.
Our experts have put all their efforts into creating routes which enable you to access the Earth’s treasures by sea. Every year, we organise more than 200 cruises, visiting more than 100 countries and nearly 400 ports on 100 different routes.
Up on deck, a couple watch the sun drop slowly into the sea as gulls circle one last time in the sky.
Friends gather round the Piano Bar and join in singing a few favorites. And in the Tropical Bar, the bartender shakes a pitcher full of some delicious cooling concoction. Now, is there anything more relaxing than this?
Clearly this is not a cruise ship in the ordinary sense. On Star Clippers, you will find that there are no rigid schedules. You are free to do as you wish with your days – and evenings. To entertain you, we bring local performers on board to give passengers an authentic taste of the local music and arts.
So rather than enduring another Broadway revue, you can enjoy the conviviality of fellow shipmates while a live band plays tropical tunes from a real paradise.
Because you want a once in a lifetime vacation, we provide an array of charter options in some of the world’s most exquisite coastal regions.
Whether it’s sailing on your own, powerboating, hiring an optional skipper, or indulging in an all-inclusive Crewed yacht with captain and chef, you’re sure to experience unforgettable moments on the water with us.
From the idyllic cruising grounds of the Caribbean to the enchanting shores of the Mediterranean, the tropic splendor of far east Thailand to the exotic charm of Tahiti, Tonga, and the Indian Ocean’s Seychelles.
