A Cruise to Picture-Perfect European Cities

Our adventure begins with an overnight stay in İstanbul. Let the city take you on a journey of discovery, starting with the iconic Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque, then see where the pulse of the city leads you next.

Explore Burgas—a beautiful hidden gem in Bulgaria where a stroll through the gorgeous Sea Gardens is a must. We stay late here, which means plenty of time to take in the iconic landmarks, gorgeous churches, and delicious food.

Another late stay, this time in Varna, is perfect for strolling and taking in its history and beautiful mix of architecture. Check out that treasure for yourself—the Gold of Varna is on display at the Archaeological Museum—or meander your way around the stunning seaside park.

Discover Romanian folklore, the capital city of Bucharest, and great wines in Constanta before a day at sea. While aboard, pamper yourself with a spa day. You’ll wake up the next day for our arrival in vibrant Canakkale, Turkey where we visit the ruins of ancient Troy and the Battlefields of Gallipoli followed by another late night in Kavala, Greece.

Clinging to the foothills of Mt. Symvolo, the city of Kavala rises like an amphitheater out of the sea, with historical monuments and buildings almost too plentiful to list.

In Thessaloniki, make your way along the vibrant waterfront under the city's famous landmark, the White Tower before we arrive in Volos. Here, stroll the streets of a beautiful city that combines the allure of the sea with mystical charms and mythical legends.

A late-night stay in Mykonos is next on the agenda, famed for its brilliant whitewashed structures, bright blue roofs, and gorgeous, sun-drenched harbor views. Our voyage concludes with an overnight stay in Athens, Europe’s oldest city and home to innumerable wonders.
