Zakynthos

we’re always searching the world to find more incredible places to share with you. As we look forward to the time we can start sailing again, we’ve rounded up some of our brand-new Europe ports for our 2021 season and beyond. We hope they inspire you to start planning your next Celebrity Cruises holiday.

1.

Hydra - Greece

From the moment you step ashore in Hydra, you’ll notice it is completely different. On this idyllic island, there’s not one car, motorcycle, or even bicycle in sight - they’re not allowed, perfect for a relaxing respite. Hydra’s rustic charm makes it a hot spot for artists, writers, and celebrities. Be sure to be on the look-out for A-listers as you stroll the bougainvillea-lined streets. One of our favourite celebrities—Celebrity Infinity®—will sail here in 2021, so you can uncover the island’s iconic mansions, chill at its stunning beaches, live it up at the local tavernas, and more.

2.

Thessaloniki, Greece

Greece’s second biggest city, Thessaloniki, is home to a charming waterfront, 15 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and over 30 museums. At Greece’s cultural capital, some of the most fascinating stages of history converge, with artefacts from the Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman empires and easy access to a collection of storied archaeological locations. Stroll through the city’s picturesque cobblestone streets, enjoy the lively markets, or dance, drink, and dine your way through the lively Ladadika district. We’re thrilled that Celebrity Infinity® is sailing to this unique city, and we know you will be, too.

3.

Zakynthos, Greece

There is a lot of competition for Greece’s best beach, but you’d be hard pressed not to hand the title to Navagio Beach on Zakynthos, situated between spectacular cliffs rising from the crystal-clear waters. A washed-up vessel perched bafflingly on its white sands adds to the fascination of the beach. With such striking beauty, it’s no wonder Zakynthos has inspired artists and poets since ancient times. Climbing up Skopos Hill is perfect for panoramic views and an active adventure. More of a nature lover? Step aboard a Greek caique boat and go turtle spotting in the Bay of Laganas. Zakynthos is an exciting addition to our 2021 lineup of ports on Celebrity Constellation®.

4..

Taranto, Italy

Taranto is tucked into the heel of Italy, blending Old-World charm with fascinating coastal scenery. Wander the narrow streets of Borgo Antico to discover ancient sites like the Castel Sant’Angelo and the Temple of Poseidon. Savour the seaside views along the Lungomare Vittorio Emanuel promenade. Indulge in the delicious local flavours at an olive oil or wine tasting. Enjoy some R&R at the area’s sun-soaked beaches. And set off to must-see archaeological sites, such as Sassi di Matera, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that’s home to ancient limestone cave dwellings. Tempted by Taranto? Celebrity Constellation® will sail here in 2021.
