BREATHTAKING

SCENERY

The region where the Mediterranean and Aegean seas meet is known as one of the most beautiful in the world. Turkey and the Greek Dodecanese Islands are richly historical with a unique culture that begs to be explored. 

The magnificent coastline, lapped by the impossibly blue sea, abounds in vast and pristine beaches surrounded by olive groves, rocky crags, and pine woods.

 

There are many picturesque towns that you can visit during your cruise.
Begin your blue cruise in the lively town of Datca, often called "another planet." Bodrum is renowned for its nightlife and somewhat bohemian atmosphere. Marmaris is a bustling and colorful harbor town. In Fethiye, you can explore the ancient Lycian tombs, then browse the charming traditional markets before dinner in the town square. The quaint seaside village of Gocek is renowned for its excellent fish restaurants and crystal-clear waters ideal for snorkeling. 

Head to the Dodecanese islands and the friendly island of Symi. Enjoy the lovely swimming spots, neoclassical architecture, and lively atmosphere on the island's eastern shores. Try your hand at fishing, then have the Chef prepare your catch of the day!
