Venturing to Croatia’s clear, sapphire waters is a refreshing experience. The coast is awash with ancient architecture, quaint little fishing villages and a collection of many picturesque islands that are serviced well in the summer months by an extensive ferry network if you fancy a spot of island hopping.
Countless treasures can be uncovered during your cruise to the Eastern Mediterranean, particularly when you begin to explore Greece.

When you cruise to Istanbul you are truly entering a city of wonder. Considered the place where east meets west, Istanbul is the only city to occupy two continents. For this reason, the city has been a pivotal location for commerce and conquest for thousands of years. The wealth of history and culture is simply unmatched, from the beautifully detailed mosques to the 500-year-old Grand Bazaar.
Then explore the Black Sea, not nearly as foreboding as its name suggests, where you’ll encounter beautiful cities like the Ukraine’s Odessa, Bulgaria’s Varna and Romania’s Constanta with their captivating architecture and endless beaches.
Spectacular coastlines, picture-postcard villages, striking religious monuments and a plethora of UNESCO World Heritage sites makes this part of the world a joy to experience.
