Remembering the Legends of Gallipoli
Retrace the ANZACs journey with a history lover’s dream cruise.
No matter how much you’ve read about Gallipoli, you can never really appreciate what the diggers went through until you’ve been here and seen the diabolical landscape for yourself. Australian history buffs have a fantastic opportunity to travel to a region associated with one of the most significant military battles of our time with Celestyal Cruises’ Eclectic Aegean tour. The best time to experience the true solemnity of the Gallipoli battlefields is outside the Anzac Day crowds – Celestyal offer cruises from April – October in 2020.
Celestyal Cruises’ Eclectic Aegean involves a day trip to Çanakkale – during this shore excursion you have a full day of exploring and soaking up history. Pay your respects to the fallen soldiers and share the stories of heroism and camaraderie that unfolded among the tragedies of what has become a defining moment in Australian and New Zealand history.
Celestyal Cruises’ Eclectic Aegean also allows for Australian history lovers to discover the ancient city of Troy (during the same cruise), immortalised by Homer in the “Iliad” – a chance to reignite one’s appreciation for Greek mythology and history and learn stories of the Greek Gods.
