Black Sea Brilliance

JUL. 16-27, 2022
Istanbul, Odessa, Constanta, Nessebar, Kusadasi, Bodrum, Santorini, Mykonos, Piraeus, Athens
Aboard Aboard Riviera

Taste the exotic flavors of the eastern Mediterranean and the Black Sea on this 10-night cruise aboard Oceania Cruises’ Riviera. You’ll have new tales to tell, from Istanbul to Athens, with the traditions of Bulgaria, Romania, Turkey and Ukraine sprinkled in. Planned specifically for the culturally curious, this cruise seeks out authentic experiences of lesser-known European cultures and explores their Greek and Roman roots in depth. Catch folk performances, village visits, and food tours set against a Byzantine backdrop of onion-domed cathedrals and ancient ruins. In Odessa, the Potemkin Steps welcome visitors up to the graceful Prymorsky Boulevard, and in Turkey, the ancient ruins of Ephesus come alive along marble roads carved with chariot marks. Top off your tour with island hopping through Greece: snap a photo of Santorini’s indigo-domed churches clinging to stony cliffs along the caldera, and sip ouzo among the glitz and glamour of Mykonos.

Cost: From $4,299 (including airfare from select cities)
