EXPO CRUISES AND TOURS
Duration: May 1, 2019 - May 15, 2019

15-Day Cruise/Tour – Athens Round-trip  
Shore Excursions Included!

This brand-new cruise for 2019 begins with two-nights in the Greek capital of Athens, for its many wonders, including the majestic Parthenon.  Cruise through the beautiful Dardanelles strait, legendary site of ancient Troy and written about by Byron, to Marmara, the smallest sea in the world. Pass through the meeting point of continents, the Bosphorus, to enter the crossroads of the ancient world, the legendary Black Sea.  Explore the historic Roman port of Varna in Bulgaria, at the site of an ancient Thracian civilization. Tour the incredible architectural marvels of Constanta in Romania, then overnight in Odessa, the “Pearl of the Black Sea,” where sights include the breathtaking Potemkin Stairs, immortalized by the legendary filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein.  Back in the Mediterranean, experience some classical Aegean magic from Volos on mainland Greece, legendary home of the mythological hero Jason, to the untouched islands of Limnos, Skiathos and Patmos.
