Free travel Insurance Including COVID-19 Cover for European Cruises.

October 21, 2020 Headline News No Comments Email Email

Cyprus based Greece and Mediterranean cruising Celestyal Cruises has announced that as it looks towards returning to cruising, it is providing complimentary travel insurance for all new bookings of March-June 2021 sailings, applying to individual bookings made now and until November 30 2020.

The insurance will be provided by market leading Allianz Global Assistance and includes coverage of medical/hospitalisation expenses, including those associated with COVID-19, transportation costs to the nearest hospital, and travel costs to the next port of call if required, as well as travel expenses to return home due to illness if required, and reimbursement for any unused portion of a cruise.

For an additional fee, guests can also upgrade their policy to also include trip cancellation coverage.

With Celestyal’s first sailing of the 2021 season on March 6th on board its new flagship, the Celestyal Experience, the seven-night “Three Continents” itinerary will include in Greece Athens and Rhodes, in Turkey Kusadasi, in Israel Ashdod, in Egypt Port Said and Cyprus Limassol.

Thessaloniki is also a new embarkation/disembarkation port for Celestyal Cruises, the second largest city in Greece with a rich cultural and culinary heritage being the gateway to the land of Alexander the Great, stellar nightlife, and laid-back authenticity.

Leslie Peden, chief commercial officer of Celestyal Cruises said, “We are extremely optimistic about the future of cruising and are truly excited to introduce our guests to our newest addition to the fleet, the Celesytal Experience”.

“We recognise that concerns surrounding the pandemic still exist, and we want to help put our guests at ease when booking with us for voyages during the first half of next year, so we’re proud to be one of the first in cruising to offer complimentary COVID cover travel insurance along with very attractive all-inclusive introductory pricing to help restore their confidence in booking that dream vacation that they likely had to put on hold this past year as a result of the pandemic”.
