Debarkation time in Athens from Celestyal Crystal


Recommended Posts

We are sailing on the Celestyal Crystal to Egypt, Israel, Cyprus and Turkey on Feb 29/20 returning to Athens on March 7/20 at 9am. Does anyone have experience with how quickly one can debark the ship in Athens (would also have to clear customs) as we are thinking about doing a shore excursion to Corinth with a drop off at the airport.

We just sailed in October.  Once we docked it took about 1 1/2 hours to clear the ship and unload the luggage.  Once passengers were allowed to get off, we were one of the first.  They allow passengers off depending on where they are seated.  We were in the theater (sorry I can not remember the name) where the evening shows were held and that happened to be the first place the crew came to.  I guess we got lucky.  Once we got off it was very easy - no customs, just pick up your bags and walk out!
