Celestyal Cruises, the only home-porting cruise operator in Greece and the preeminent sea cruise line serving Greek destinations and the island of Cuba, today announced it won five awards at the Tourism Awards 2017.

Celestyal won four gold awards:
Tourism Season Expanding Initiatives-Greek Tourism Product Enrichment
Guest Service Excellence
Gastronomic Tourism
Corporate Identity-Corporate Reputation Management-Branding
The company also won a silver award for Integrated Marketing Campaign.

On Tuesday, 21 March, the glittering Awards Ceremony, held at the Athenaeum InterContinental in Athens Greece, was the beating heart of Greek tourism. For the 4th consecutive year, the Tourism Awards, presented by Boussias Communications, under the auspices of the Ministry of Tourism and the Greek National Tourism Organization (GNTO), rewarded best business practices and the finest organizations in the travel, hospitality and leisure sectors, as well as initiatives that promote innovation and the peerless experience tourists enjoy in Greece. Among the award winners, Celestyal Cruises stood out for its innovative practices and incomparable services with four first-place wins.

Individual Awards
Tourism Season Expanding Initiatives-Greek Tourism Product Enrichment
Celestyal Cruises won a gold award for the continuous enrichment of its services, particularly for making strategic investments that “open new roads" in the cruise market with the addition of new destinations to its itineraries that only its midsize vessels can approach.

Guest Service Excellence
The company was given a gold award for providing authentic Greek hospitality to a diverse aggregate of passengers from more than 140 different countries. Celestyal continues to distinguish itself in Greece and internationally for the meticulous design and execution of its product and for the implementation of its strategy to meet the requirements of a truly international clientele, a successful strategy as evidenced by the overwhelmingly positive responses to its passenger satisfaction questionnaires.

Gastronomic Tourism
In 2016 Celestyal the company introduced "Stories of Greek Enogastronomy," a series of themed cruises based on Greek cuisine, local dishes and Greek wines, offering an authentic enogastronomic experience to its passengers. Celestyal distinguished itself from its competition with its holistic promotion of Greek food and wine, which the company highlights on its Aegean cruises. Greek cuisine and wine is one of the pillars of the company’s products, both on board and for many of its experiential shore excursions.

Corporate Identity-Corporate Reputation Management-Branding
Celestyal won its fourth gold award for its 2016 public relations initiatives, which have resulted in progressive international recognition for the 'diversity and authenticity’ of its cruises, particularly the positive media coverage the company has garnered in Europe, the USA and Canada, as well as recent distinctions from Cruise Critic, the world's first cruise reviews website.

Integrated Marketing Campaign
Celestyal was presented with a silver award for its integrated "Sea More" campaign, which it launched in seven international capitals. “Sea More” is a 360° concept-umbrella, customizable according to each market and the specific product characteristics promoted therein.

"I am very proud of these important distinctions the company in a high-prestige institution,” said Kyriakos Anastassiadis, CEO of Celestyal Cruises. “Celestyal Cruises offers authentic experiences in each destination it visits, including popular and ‘undiscovered’ destinations in the Aegean and Cuba. We are delighted to offer high quality and value accommodation to the passengers who choose our cruises. Our tremendous success at Tourism Awards 2017 is a testament to our commitment to excellence and the industry’s best value-for-money cruises."

Ασβεστώνοντας την Πειραϊκή... με καλή παρέα
Αλάτι στα βράχια
Χταπόδια στην Πειραϊκή
Μεγάλη Εβδομάδα. Κατάνυξη...
Το αρχαίο κλέος και το σύγχρονο ...
Άνθισαν οι δρόμοι της Καλλίπολης
Ο Πειραιάς την άνοιξη μυρίζει νεραντζιές...
Σταυρός της Άνοιξης
ανθίζουν και οι πόρτες στον Πειραιά
Οργανισμός Λιμένος Πειραιώς
Στην άκρη του λιμανιού
Κάβοι στο λιμάνι
Μπαϊκούτσι. Χειμωνιάτικη λιακάδα.
Silo. Λιμάνι Πειραιά
Σταυρός στην Πειραϊκή
Κάτω από τη γέφυρα
Πλοίο. Συμμετρία
Κρύο στο Πασαλιμάνι...
Μνήμες Πειραιά
Για ένα πουκάμισο αδειανό...
Και όμως είναι Πειραιάς... Θεοφάνεια στο Μπαϊκούτσι!
Χειμωνιάτικος Πειραιάς (φωτο Γιούλη Επτακοίλη)
Πανσέληνος (φωτο Γ.Χριστάκης)
Πυροτεχνήματα στον ουρανό του Πειραιά
Φθινόπωρο στην Πειραϊκή
Φως από νησί
Θάλασσες ΙΙΙ
Θάλασσες ΙΙ
Θάλασσες Ι
Σκιές σε τοίχο καλοκαιριού
Προορισμός... ο Πειραιάς
