Cruises from Athens to Istanbul

Cruises from Athens to Istanbul transport you to some of the more magical places in the world! Azamara Club Cruises sail from Athens to Istanbul on relaxing 7-night Mediterranean cruises, while Holland America Line and Princess Cruises also have itineraries which list Istanbul as a port of call on their cruises from Athens. You can choose from a 12 or 31-night cruise on Princess Cruise Line's Pacific Princess or choose Holland America Line's Prisendam which sails on 14 or 28-night Mediterranean cruises. Both Princess Cruises and Holland America Line have Istanbul as a port of call on their Mediterranean cruise itineraries.

Why Sail from Athens to Istanbul?

Istanbul is an incredibly diverse city which offers more than just a little something for everyone! Shop at the Grand Bazaar where you'll find 4,000 merchants selling their wares on a series of covered streets. In Turkey, merchants are generally offended if you simply pay the price they're asking. They expect you to dicker back and forth until a price acceptable to both parties is reached - or until someone gives in and walks off. For those who like this type of "shopping," it can be quite the sport! Visit the site of the Hippodrome - a massive ancient amphitheater which, in its heyday, held approximately 100,000 people and was a very important structure in Byzantine, Roman, and Ottoman times for celebratory occasions. See the Egyptian Obelisk which was brought to Constantinople (now Istanbul) from Egypt during the Roman era in 390 A.D.  A trip to Istanbul would simply not be complete if you neglected to stand at Point Zero. Point Zero is literally a stone on the street corner across from the most magnificent of all of the Byzantine churches in Istanbul - the Hagia Sophia. During the era of the Eastern Roman Empire, Point Zero indicated the "Center of the Known Universe."  Enjoy a soak, steam or relaxing massage at a Turkish Bath. Just be sure to check the hours of the local baths as men and women are required to bathe separately and are therefore assigned specific hours. Visit Istiklal Street - one of the city's finer shopping and entertainment districts. Take in the local color and some fresh, inexpensive seafood at the small fishing village of Anadolu Kavagi. These are but a few of the activities and sights that await you on your cruise from Athens to Istanbul.
