Experience the unique cultures of eastern bloc countries such as Bulgaria, Ukraine and Romania or explore the northern Turkish coast on a Black Sea Cruise. As a more off-beat destination; a lot of counties situated here are rapidly changing so there is a real sense of energy and renewal everywhere you go. There are a few longer Mediterranean cruises which leave from the UK and include the Black Sea in their itineraries, however most cruises here are fly-cruise voyages sailing from either Istanbul or Athens. A lot of these cruises will include a visit to the Greek Islands in their itinerary.

When to Cruise?

The Black Sea cruise season is generally between May and October when the weather is usually dry and warm.

Northern Turkey

Sailing along the southern coast of the Black Sea, visit ancient ports of northern Turkey such as Sinope (once one of the major ports of Asia Minor) or Trabzon. Head further east to Batumi and the chance to explore Georgia.

The Black Sea

On a Black Sea cruise ports such as Odessa, Yalta, Constanta, Varna and Nesebur are popular choices. Quickly changing as countries expand their tourist offerings, you will find WHO listed sites and bustling town centres. In Ukraine visit Yalta, a former favourite of the Russian elite, Odeassa the site of the Potemkin Steps or perhaps Sevastapol, situated not far from the ill-fated Charge of the Light Brigade.
