The Black Sea is a body of water encircled by Romania, Russia, Ukraine, Georgia, Bulgaria and Turkey. In recent years, cruise lines have suspended their sailings to the Black Sea due to unrest in the area. However, selected cruise lines have once again begun to offer Black Sea cruises, with ports of call including Odessa, Constanta and Georgia.
Azamara Club Cruises and Crystal Cruises are among the cruise lines who have reinstated Black Sea cruises, starting in 2020 and available to book now. These itineraries focus on the Black Sea as the main area of the cruise, departing from Athens and entering the Black Sea via the Strait of Istanbul, which is also known as the Bosporus Strait. After circumnavigating the Black Sea, the ships will then return to Athens at the end of each 14-night voyage.
At the moment, the number of Black Sea cruises is limited. However, if you’re looking for a balance of paradise ports and bustling cities, you may find other destinations in the Mediterranean which are more than suitable.
Alternatively, you may wish to consider a luxury river cruise on the Volga. Porting in Moscow, St Petersburg and Yaroslavl, you can still experience the enchanting atmosphere of Russia, with on-board experiences to rival those of even the most indulgent ocean cruise ships.
The Black Sea is the ideal cruise region for travellers looking to enjoy the Mediterranean climate without the crowds, visiting destinations across some of Eastern Europe's most captivating countries.
