Made from the resin of the mastic tree, which is a member of the cashew family and indigenous to the island of Chios, mastiha does it all: food, beverages, cosmetics and balms. The first special themed event featuring mastihashop products took place on May 22: special themed events featuring mastiha will take place on Celestyal Cruises ships every two weeks until the end of September.

In addition to the special events, Celestyal Cruises passengers will have the chance to try unique recipes from Chios and cocktails, all made with mastiha. For those who want to experience Chios up close, Celestyal Cruises’ seven-day 'Iconic Aegean' cruise is the perfect way to say kalimera to the island’s mastiha, to its sprawling citrus groves and to its unique vernacular architecture; other magical ports of call on this cruise include Istanbul, Kuşadası, Santorini, Crete, Rhodes, Symi and Mykonos.
