Cruise Greece and Turkey This Summer with Azamara

Begin your Greece and Turkey voyage in Istanbul, then it's off to Kepez—the gateway to the wonders of Canakkale, Troy, and Gallipoli. In the ancient port of Ephesus on a late stay, discover the beautiful Library of Celsus, the Odeon, and the Amphitheater where St. Paul preached.

Kavala in Greece is home to picture-perfect beaches. Next, the Byzantine beauty of Thessaloniki is breathtaking, and the ethereal magic of Meteora near Volos is sure to captivate. Next, savor the slower pace of Syros, before concluding with an overnight in always-alluring Athens. 

Cruise Highlights

  • In Istanbul, grab a kebab at a local kebapçıs, then stop in at an authentic meyhanes (Turkish tavern) for a drink.
  • Canakkale Archaeology Museum: Discover woodwork, ceramics, art, and artifacts, including items from ancient Troy.
  • Discover neoclassical buildings in the Old City of Cesme, a seaside resort town popular among locals.
  • From Kavala, discover the ruins of nearby Phillippi, where the Apostle Paul baptized the first European Christian.
  • Volos is famed for its fish tavernas. Savor freshly caught calamari and sample the local anise-flavored spirit tsipouro. 
  • On Syros, Ermoupoli’s grand square is perfect for people watching. Catch some shade under its palm trees, or make your way to one of its many cafes and bars.

    Date: Tue 6-Sep to Wed 7-Sep 2022
    Activity: Embark/Docked
    Arrival: - (Sep 6)
    Depart: 6:00 pm (Sep 7)
    East meets West in the storied city where Europe and Asia meet. Start in Sultanahmet Square and you can easily explore the intricate architecture of Topkapi Palace, the cathedral-turned-mosque-turned-museum of Hagia Sofia, and the brilliant blues of the Sultan Ahmed Mosque. Sample kebaps, mezes and more at the city’s endless restaurants and taverns where you’re sure to meet friendly locals and be caught up in their infectious love of life.
  • Day 3
    Kepez
    (Troy/Gallipoli), Turkey

    Date: Thu 8-Sep 2022
    Activity: Docked
    Arrival: 8:00 am
    Depart: 5:00 pm
    Kepez is a small seaside town, but real treasures can be found when you explore further beyond the shore. The ancient city of Troy was once just a myth, but archaeological excavations have brought this fabled locale to life. Also within reach of port is the Gallipoli Peninsula, where an ill-fated WWI campaign devastated Allied forces. In Assos, the Temple of Athena sits perched on an acropolis with sweeping sea views.

    Activity: Docked
    Arrival: 8:00 am
    Depart: 10:00 pm
    Kusadasi has many charms, but let’s talk Turkey: The star attraction is Ephesus. Once the second largest city in the Roman Empire, its marble-made Arcadian Street stretches from the 24,000-capacity Great Theatre (where St. Paul used to preach) to the harbor. Nearby sites include the Temple of Artemis, Basilica of St. John, and House of Virgin Mary, where Mary is supposed to have spent her last days.

    Depart: 8:00 pm
    The seaside resort town of Cesme is not only a popular destination for Turkish and tourists alike, but also for surfers, who come from all over the world to surf, windsurf, kite-surf…the list goes on. (Perhaps it’s the golden-sand beaches like Ilica Beach, warm sapphire waters, and laid-back atmosphere that have something to do with the allure.)

    At Sea

    Arrival: -

    Spend the day sailing in style aboard your boutique hotel at sea. Indulge in a treatment at Sanctum Spa, stay ship shape with a class at our fitness center, or lounge the day away on our sunny pool deck.

    Activity: Docked
    Arrival: 7:00 am
    Depart: 7:30 pm
    Clinging to the foothills of Mt. Symvolo, the city of Kavala (“the heart of Eastern Macedonia”) rises like an amphitheater out of the sea, with historical monuments and buildings almost too plentiful to list.

    Date: Tue 13-Sep 2022
    Activity: Docked
    Arrival: 9:00 am
    Depart: 10:00 pm
    As Greece’s second-biggest city and the Byzantine Empire’s second-most important city, the word “second” is often used to describe this port, but we’re here to tell you: Thessaloniki is anything but second-rate!
  • Day 9
    Volos
    (Meteora), Greece
    Read More +
    Date: Wed 14-Sep 2022
    Activity: Docked
    Arrival: 8:30 am
    Depart: 7:00 pm
    Dating back to the Neolithic age and famed as the mythical “City of the Argonauts”, Volos is a modern city in the heart of Greece, and is a place of immense natural beauty and numerous archaeological sites.

    Syros
    Greece
    Read More +
    Date: Thu 15-Sep 2022
    Activity: Tendered
    Arrival: 9:00 am
    Depart: 6:00 pm
    Off the beaten path, Syros is far less hedonistic than its neighbors, Mykonos and Santorini. Instead, it offers an authentic look at what Greek life is truly like on the Cyclades. Home to fantastic food and beautiful beaches, Syros is a hidden gem that doesn’t necessarily want to be discovered — only further adding to its unmistakable charm.
  • Day 11-12
    Piraeus
    (Athens), Greece

    Date: Fri 16-Sep to Sat 17-Sep 2022

    Arrival: 9:00 am (Sep 16)
    Depart: -
    Start your journey in Piraeus with an archaeological walk past landmarks like the Temple of Olympian Zeus, Ancient Agora, and of course, the Acropolis. Afterwards, head to the Central Market for a feast of fresh fruit and veggies, nuts, olives, and Grecian cheese. Finally, check out a local taverna where you can rub elbows with the locals well into the wee hours of the night.
