Highlights of the 2015 Black Sea Cruise Season & Private Tours in Odessa, Constanta, Varna and Nessebar

Having called at Constanta (Romania) and Varna (Bulgaria) a week ago, ms Prinsendam (Holland America cruise line) closed the 2015 cruise season in the Black Sea. So, it’s now time to sum up its results.

How did this season go for us? Honestly, much better than the last year’s. While we certainly missed all the 100 cruise ship calls, which we used to get in 2012 and 2013, we were thrilled to welcome those few, which called on Odessa, Constanta and Bulgarian Varna, Nessebar and Burgas this year. And we tried to make the most out of the situation both for the travelers and ourselves.

Constanta and Nessebar Food, History and Culture Tour

In 2011 we launched our original Odessa Food Tasting tour. We were the first (and still are the only ones) who offered such tour in Odessa. Next year we expanded it to tailor to interests and time in port of Odessa guests who visited us with cruise ships. And the tour became an exciting mix of food, history and culture. Having received excellent reviews, we decided to provide our guests with a unique opportunity to taste their way through other Black Sea ports – Romanian Constanta and Bulgarian Nessebar. Our first guests came with a Windstar cruise in May’15. And with full confidence, I can say that both Constanta and Nessebar Food, History and Culture tours went extremely well. Here’s just one comment from our guest: “The food tour in Constanta, the first of this kind they had offered, was a resounding success. I have already tried to recreate some of the dishes we had along the way” (full review is available on our listing on Tripadvisor).

So, we are very excited and looking forward to taking you on a food journey through the Black Sea ports. And meanwhile, to let you sneak a peek at the Constanta Food, History and Culture tour, we’ve put together a short video about the tour. Enjoy watching and contact us at to book your place on the tour.

Safe Travels!


Nessebar (Bulgaria) Cruise Port

When going on a cruise, it’s always good to know as much as possible about your ports of call. Helps to make a decision on how to best spend your time there: opt for a self-tour, join a shore excursion organized by your cruise or book a private guide. We’ve put together this video about Nessebar cruise port to provide with an idea where it is a respect to the town and how to get from the cruise dock to the historic area.
