Azamara Journey
Sailing: July 18, 2020

Adventure Through the Marvelous and Mysterious Black Sea

The Black Sea is more than just a body of water; it’s a keeper of secrets. Some say it’s the location of Noah’s Biblical flood; others suggest it’s the site of the lost city of Atlantis. One thing’s for certain, it’s an unforgettable spot to travel aboard the Azamara Journey®.

Our adventure begins in Athens, Europe’s oldest city and home to innumerable wonders—from the Temple of Olympian Zeus to the Acropolis. Then it’s off on a journey through time to the recovered Greco-Roman city of Ephesus.

From here, pamper yourself with a spa date and a show aboard your boutique hotel at sea as we cruise the Bosphorus Strait, an ancient waterway that carries adventurers from the Sea of Marmara to the Black Sea. Upon arrival, we’ll visit cosmopolitan Varna, Bulgaria, foodie-friendly Constanţa, Romania, and decadent Odessa, Ukraine.

After another day cruising, we arrive 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, followed by Trabzon, Turkey, an important stop on the historical Silk Road.

Next, it’s another day at sea and a return cruise through the Bosphorus Strait. This Black Sea adventure then makes stops in Kavala and Skiathos before concluding in Athens to see more of its ancient attractions.
