“Celebrity Cruises’ Captains are sharing their favorite Greek experiences through a new “Captain-Curated” shore excursions program. Offered aboard any Celebrity ship sailing the Greek Isles during summer 2022, the all-new collection of unique and exclusive excursions are designed to ensure guests “Journey WonderFULL” and experience the destination “like a local”,” stated Celebrity Cruises in a press release this week.

These Captain-curated excursions touch back to Celebrity Cruises’ roots, as Celebrity Cruises was founded in 1988 by the Chandris family of Greece. Today, 70% of marine officers across the Celebrity Cruises fleet hail from Greece. Additionally, more than 40 Captains and Chief Engineers also originate from Greece.
