Epic Journey Across Time: Cyprus, Rhodes & the Turquoise Coast Aboard Emerald Azzurra


April 9-18, 2025

From $8,999 Per Person Based on Double Occupancy.

Sail through millennia of history on a beautiful, seven-night Eastern Mediterranean cruise aboard the acclaimed new Emerald Azzurra. Journey from Cyprus, one of the world’s best-kept secrets, to the legendary Greek island of Rhodes and Turkey’s pristine Turquoise Coast, where you will board private glass-bottom boats for a fascinating perspective on the submerged ruins of an ancient city. With experts guiding you through the extraordinary history of this less-traveled region, you’ll be enriched by this in-depth look at the rise and fall of ancient empires—from the Mycenaeans, Phoenicians, Greeks, and Lycians to the Romans, Byzantines, and Ottomans—and the historical interplay of Christianity and Islam.

An optional prelude is available in Istanbul, one of the world’s most splendid cities with its ancient mosques and palaces, and the otherworldly landscapes of Turkey’s Cappadocia region.
