Black Sea Cruises
Ancient cities, diverse cultures and stunning monuments are all part of the Black Sea cruise experience
Our collection of Black Sea cruises offer you the opportunity to explore some of the world’s most interesting countries. Laden with history, this is a region that lends itself perfectly to the nature of cruising, with the each new day offering the chance to walk in the footsteps of ancient civilisations, marvel at magnificent architecture, and take in some of the most glorious scenery you’re ever likely to encounter.
For some, a cruise of the Black Sea is seen as an alternative option to the more traditional – and slightly busier - Mediterranean cruise itineraries. However, that’s not to say the region doesn’t have its own charm –and it certainly offers enough variation to guarantee a pleasurable and at times educational experience.
Where do Black Sea cruises go?
The Black Sea’s inland location, situated between south east Europe and connected to the Aegean Sea by the Bosphorus Strait and the Strait of the Dardanelles, means that itineraries to the region can vary so there’s plenty of scope for finding one that matches up to your preferences.
Many Black Sea cruises will include stops at some truly fascinating ports of call; Yalta in Ukraine is packed with stunning architecture and museums set against a backdrop of mountains and vineyards; Constanta offers Roman ruins alongside Monte Carlo-style glamour whilst the medieval undertones of Varna give the city an otherworldly ambience.
Cruise lines that visit the Black Sea
There are many cruise lines that offer Black Sea voyages. For luxury, look no further than itineraries with all-inclusive operators such as Regent Seven Seas and Silversea. Those seeking small ship cruises should peruse those offered by Swan Hellenic, whilst river cruise enthusiasts will be delighted at the variety of Danube River sailings offered by the likes of AMA Waterways and Viking.
