News for the crew

Dear Celestyal Crewmember ……... 01/07/2020

As all we are aware cruise companies and public health officials are still evacuating and repatriating tens of thousands of crew members who have remained at sea as the pandemic raged. In Celestyal Cruises we believe that for the crew to feel safe, they need to know that the passengers around them wont’be boarding the ship sick and the passengers they need to know that the crew will be held to a high standard of wellness. Taking into consideration all these circumstances the management of Celestyal Cruises made the difficult decision to postpone resuming cruise operations until the scheduled start of our normal spring season next year. We will shift our full attention to recommence sailing from the 6th of March 2021. Of course, nothing we can do without the support of our crew members and we are deeply sorry that they stay at home suffering due to COVID-19. We hope that the period until next March will pass very quick and we look forward to welcoming all our Celestyal crew members again.

Celestyal crew announcement

Dear Celestyal Cruises crewmember, In our continuous efforts to keep you updated we would like to inform you of the following latest developments: As you know the voluntary initial suspension of our cruise operations was until 1 May 2020. The continued impact of COVID-19 pandemic however, resulted to an increasing number of temporary travel bans, closures of cruise ports, closure of major attractions and countries imposing restrictions on public gatherings and visitors. This situation has forced us to take the difficult but necessary decision to extend our suspension of operations until June 29, 2020. Currently, our cruises will resume on this date with the four-night Iconic Aegean sailing of the Celestyal Olympia. While we understand any disappointment and appreciate the constrains and anxiety this decision may bring to each one of you, we want to highlight that its sole aim is to protect the health of everybody onboard our vessels whether crew or passengers and it is based on the advice of World Health Organization, health professionals and regulators around the world. We will continue to keep in touch with further updates as they come. Till then, stay healthy with your family .
