Cruises from Istanbul

Thanks to its strategic location, in the Bosphorus Strait, between the Marmara and Black Sea, Istanbul's natural harbor has been the most important in the area since ancient times. It is located in the area known as the Golden Horn.

Nowadays, Istanbul has a modern cruise port located in the Galata neighborhood, next to the bridge of the same name, in the northern part of the European part of the city. The port is very well connected by tram, which allows to visit the city by free without any problem.

Boarding in Istanbul is possible to visit a great number of ports, from the most classic Adriatic and the Aegean like Athens, Venice and the beautiful Greek Islands, to other attractive destinations such as Kusadasi and Bodrum (Turkey) or the new destinations emerging from the Black Sea Such as Sochi (Russia), Odessa (Ukraine) and Constanta (Romania).

When to travel

The cruise season in Istanbul usually begins in the month of March and arrives until the first of November. However, the itineraries that arrive to the Black Sea usually do not take place in summer, but between March and April and between September and October, you have to take it into account if that is the area that you want to visit.

When to book

There are many cruise ships that stop in Istanbul but not so many who embark in the city, so if you want to take a cruise from Istanbul and enjoy the city, you must be prepared and make the reservation well in advance .

We recommend you take advantage of the advance sale offers that appear between November and February, especially if you are families or groups, since the boats do not have many triple and quadruple cabins.
