  1. According to two diferrent sources (Trademarked names by Celebrity and the official calendar of Grand Cayman) it seems that the next ship for Celebrity will be called.... CELEBRITY ASCENT Currently it is of course unconfirmed, but what do you think of the name?

  4. The Celebrity Beyond, the third Edge-class ship, will be longer and taller than the Edge and Apex, according to Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president and CEO of Celebrity Cruises. The ship, currently under construction at Chantiers de l'Atlantique, will launch in April 2022 on her first cruise in Europe before repositioning to Port Everglades in late October 2022. The maiden voyage will sail on April 27, 2022 from Southampton, England. It will be a10-night Western Europe cruise. She will then offer a variety of Mediterranean journeys including a nine-night Italian Riviera and France itineraries and 10-night Greek Isles itineraries through early October, when she then heads to the Caribbean at Port Everglades for the 2022-2023 cruise season. The ship will be 20 meters longer than her sisters, according to Royal Caribbean Group CEO Richard Fain. “It’s important to talk about it as an expansion rather than a stretch,” said Fain. The Edge class signature feature, the Magic Carpet, will also evolve for the Celebrity Beyond, according to company executives.
  5. From the 22nd of June 2023 the second ship of the Leonardo-class is registered regularly in the port of Cannes. Hint to a Mediterranean season.
  6. For your information today Silver Whisper and Silver Spirit were registered to the official cruise schedule of Piraeus port from July 2021. 😉
  7. Croatia does not accept ships from Italy, Greece and other countris. So it's actually not possible to visit this year. NE Greece, a great idea. But usually these ports went in the same itineraries as Istanbul which is closed.
  8. There is no issue with Turkey or Cyprus. Turkey is though closed to cruise ships for this year so Kusadasi is out of the picture. Mykonos (only 1 dock), Santorini are both tender ports and the other ports cannot accept more than 4 at the same time. But I don't think tendering or docking would have to be their first priority. Crowding of people in one place would be. Except for the Aegean Sea there is also Ionian Sea to consider (Corfu, Argostoli & Katakolon). Also they can use Israel (Haifa) and Cyprus (Limassol).
  9. Not yet, there are only its old registries listed. If it updates again I will inform you. I hope Eurodam will offer more destinations than the usual Rhodes, Santorini, Mykonos, Crete as these places with all the recent announced itineraries of other companies will certaintly be overcrowded.
  10. Today it was Enchanted Princess's turn to be registered in the official schedule of Piraeus, Athens port. 7-night cruises from the 4th of July until the 14th of November 2021.
  11. Today it was Eurodam's turn to be registered in the official schedule of Piraeus, Athens port. 7-night cruises from the 23rd of July until the 29th of October 2021.
  12. They are changing the ship. They will put Norwegian Jade in its place with a slightly different itinerary so that's why I think they took the current itineraries down.

  14. Yesterday Piraeus cruise schedule updated again and now it shows Norwegian Jade in the spot of Norwegian Pearl for the summer 2021 cruises. Starting date is the 20th of July with a 4 night cruise. And from the 24th of July the normal 7 night Greek Isles cruises.
  15. According to the port registries Norwegian Pearl will be the first ship to resume operations in Greece. It will homeported in Piraeus (as it was originally planned) and the itinerary will most likely be the following one starting from the 18th of July: Piraeus (Athens), Iraklion (Crete), Rhodes, Mykonos, Argostoli (Kefalonia), Corfu, Santorini, Piraeus (Athens). Basically it's the 7 Night Greek Isles: Santorini, Mykonos & Rhodes itinerary without Kusadasi & Patmos (both replaced by a day in Iraklion, Crete). Note that until this is officially announced, it may change again.
  16. Probably both are gonna be featured as homeports.Or maybe even Haifa will be available as a homeport too.
  17. You should have listened me when I spoken about this on the other thread (some people didn't believe it). Here is the details with the itinerary too. I was hoping it had more varied destinations though... Question: How much crowding can Santorini, Mykonos, Rhodes, Crete and Limassol handle in the covid-19 period? Because it seems almost every cruise line that restarts in Eastern Med to include them.
  18. Silver Moon will be redeployed to Eastern Med exclusively to start cruises from Piraeus Athens for the summer 2021 (if they will be able to start) according to the official Piraeus cruise schedule.
  19. From what I had seen until today, it was supposed to be the Celebrity Eclipse that was gonna do these cruises. But today they changed it to Apex. Take all of these with a grain of salt because things are really tentative. They could change it again anytime. They are still trying to figure out how to do the start depending on the current situation. Also with Piraeus Athens as a homeport we can see new 2021 bookings from MSC with Fantasia and Silversea with Silver Moon that have not yet being announced. The weather here in Greece is a good factor they take into consideration for the start up. Let's see how it will turn out. I'm really curious if this start up is gonna be successful or eventually fail...
  20. Celebrity Apex today was listed in the official 2021 cruise schedule at the port of Piraeus Athens. From the 9th of July 2021 until early September will be homeported in Piraeus offering 7-night itineraries.
