Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is offering guests a preview into its 2022 itineraries with the early release of a 28-night ‘Black Sea Discovery with the Mediterranean’ cruise.

The adventure will be setting sail from Dover in September 2022.

It will offer exceptional opportunities to explore many vibrant towns and cities of the Mediterranean, before a scenic sailing along the narrow Bospheros Strait and into the Black Sea.

Here, a host of exciting destinations await, from Georgia to Ukraine, and from Romania to Russia.

Jackie Martin, marketing and sales director at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said: “This is set to be a fantastic cruise.

“In just one holiday, guests will have the opportunity to sample wines in the rolling vineyards of Georgia, taste fresh tea on one of Sochi’s many plantations, get lost in one of the world’s largest Catacombs in Ukraine, experience the vibrant cities of Valetta and Istanbul and take in the stunning views on a boat tour along the Danube.

“What’s more, once guests have finished exploring these many and varied destinations, they can return to our smaller ship Balmoral and enjoy a drink in one of our comfortable lounges, indulge in some retail therapy or a sumptuous afternoon tea, or relax with a treatment in the Atlantis Spa.”
