Turkey & Greek Island Odyssey (Standard Outside Cabin With Porthole, Start Istanbul, End Athens)
Travel to the edge of Europe with this Turkish & Greecian adventure. Hang out in the cool city of Istanbul, see the sombre memorials at Gallipoli, visit the port towns of Canakkale & Kusadasi, & dip in the thermal pools of Pamukkale. Later it’s on to the islands for a taste of Greece. Check out the fortified town of Rhodes before topping it all off with a visit to paradise – Santorini. There’s no shortage of memorable moments here, from haggling at the bazaars, to climbing the Trojan horse to just chilling on the beach.
