Dear Celestyal Crewmember,
Now that you are at home with your family, we imagine that besides your daily tasks you are engaged in a battle to cope with the problems that this unprecedented situation has brought. We really hope that you are managing as well as possible under the circumstances, and we want you to know that we are here for you.
The most important thing is to stay healthy. We are proud that we did not have any incident onboard our vessels and that the measures we took for the protection of our crew and passengers during our operation worked, thanks to your invaluable contribution.
As you are probably aware, there are some sad news about the loss of some crewmembers onboard other ships due to COVID infection. This is partly attributed to the fact that many crewmembers were and still are unable to sign off and be repatriated due to the unavailability of flights or the closure of the borders. Fortunately, we have avoided similar occurrences. By acting swiftly and prudently we managed to safely repatriate everybody, while crewmembers stranded onboard other vessels report that they are stressed and worried about themselves as well as their colleagues infected by COVID.
We have all found ourselves navigating in uncharted waters after the suspension of the operation of our two vessels the Celestyal Crystal and the Celestyal Olympia. We know that this brings uncertainty about the future and makes you worry. For this reason, we have decided to create this dedicated web page for our direct and constant communication of our plans regarding the restarting of our operations so that you can stay alert and be ready to travel to re-assume your positions onboard.
Pls check this web page regularly for further updates.
Stay healthy. Stay in touch
Ioannis G. Poniridis
Fleet Personnel Manager
