Don’t let the name fool you – the Black Sea is far from a dark place! A cruise around this area in south eastern Europe will take you to a number of locations you’ll never forget.
See all the latest Black Sea cruise deals here, or read on to find out what you can expect to see while you’re there.
Why choose a Black Sea cruise?
The Black Sea is situated in a beautiful region of the world – bounded by Europe, the Caucasus and Anatolia. Parts of Bulgaria, Romania, Turkey, Ukraine, Russia and Georgia surround it, which means you’ll have the chance to visit places many cruise ships simply don’t reach.
Visit Istanbul, probably Turkey’s most famous city, and certainly one of the most beautiful. You’ll marvel at the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and Grand Bazaar, and you’ll never forget the sound of the prayer calls that blare across the city several times a day.
Burgas in Bulgaria isn’t a city many people think about visiting, but it’s well worth it: surrounded by the stunning Burgas Lakes and home to some truly fantastic architecture.
Athens in Greece needs little introduction: an ancient city with a rich history, home to the Acropolis and much more.
Cruise lines currently operating Black Sea cruises include Princess Cruises, Cunard Cruises, P&O Cruises and Holland America.
