Celestyal Cruises took “Make-A-Wish” children to a Greek summer cruise!

This summer, Celestyal Cruises fulfilled the wishes of 7 children of Make-A-Wish, the world's largest charity, to live an exciting cruising experience. These children had the opportunity to enjoy an unforgettable tour to the Greek Islands and the Eastern Mediterranean with their families.

Having proved its support to vulnerable social groups, Celestyal Cruises continues to actively provide its support to children and people in need, this time by hosting 7 children of Make a Wish Greece, in order to travel and experience this interesting cruising experience.

This action is part of Celestyal Cruises’ Corporate Social Responsibility program, which grows through education and training activities, focusing entirely on social solidarity and humanity. Within this context, the company supports the action of Make-A-Wish Greece, by hosting families in its cruises, in order to participate in the organization’s program, while products created by Make-A-Wish are sold in Celestyal Cruises vessels’ shops, promoting the organization’s actions, with the fundraising being donated for its financial support.

The little travelers: Argiro, Vassiliki, Angelos, Maria, Manos, Magda and Marios discovered new places and took a pleasant break from their daily lives, making the most out of the company's on-board activities and excursions to destinations. As Little Argyro states with great joy: “My wish was one of the best experiences of my life and I wouldn’t change it for the world. I definitely rate it 10 out of 10! "
