Whether you’re a history buff, a wine connoisseur, or a sun bather, the eastern Mediterranean covers all the bases! Come immerse yourself in the history and culture of Croatia, Montenegro, Greece, and Turkey on this 10-night cruise. Go local in Split and cook some coastal cuisine with Croatian villagers as you partake in country festivities. Take a tuk-tuk ride around the Bay of Kotor, and in Chania, swim and snorkel or stretch out in the sun.

Sample vintage vino at a renowned winery in Santorini, where the house-dotted cliffs are the perfect backdrop for a glass of Brusco. In Athens and Ephesus, indulge your historic side as you make your way through ruins and relics. And take in the pleasures of Istanbul—meander the spice markets or make a stop at the Blue Mosque.
