The Breathtaking Black Sea

Don’t let the dark name fool you, the coast of the Black Sea is alive with lush landscapes and colorful, vibrant cities. And on this immersive 11-night voyage around the Black Sea, you’ll have plenty of time to explore it all with five late stays.

Your exploration of the Black Sea begins in Istanbul. Once the end of the Silk Road trade route linking Europe with Asia, Istanbul has always been a melting pot of cultural diversity. And today, it lures foodies, history buffs, and sightseers alike.

After some epic exploration, we cruise the Bosphorus Strait—an ancient waterway that carries adventurers from the Sea of Marmara to the Black Sea. Upon arrival, get ready for three late stays in a row. We’ll visit the cosmopolitan resort town of Varna, Bulgaria, the pink lakes of  Burgas, Bulgaria, and foodie-friendly Constanta, Romania.

Next is an overnight and a late night in opulent Odessa, Ukraine. Decadent and distinct, Odessa is the type of city you could spend a lifetime in one night. Be sure to explore the beautiful city center for unique monuments and picturesque panoramas before diving into its thriving gastronomy scene.

Spend another day cruising on your boutique hotel at sea, then we arrive for yet another late stay in the seaside playground of Sochi, home of vibrant boardwalks and beautiful hiking trails. Then it’s off to the summer holiday paradise of Batumi, Georgia before we conclude back where we started in Istanbul. With an overnight stay, take all the time you need to explore on your own terms.
