Booked this cruise in January as we really wanted to see Yalta, Sevastopol, and Odessa, and the Putin invaded Crimea and the FO advised against travelling to the Ukraine. Despite this the itinerary remained unchanged in the adverts. I wrote to them to ask where would we be going and got back a generic reply about safety etc and the situation was under review, and if a change was made we would be notified with the options. In May we received the revised itinerary from the TA and the options were go to the new destinations or lose our deposit! So we went to what was described as 'the finest possible experience of the Black Sea'. Burgas in Bulgaria was grim and the town looked like the 2nd world war had just finished; we did not land at Varna, also in Bulgaria as it was too rough to tender. Trabzon was a nice town but with very little for the tourist. We were advised that the trip to the monastery was a waste of time because of the 300 slippery steps, and the mist so we would not see anything. The most exciting thing in Sinop was a disused Jail!. Things improved considerably when we left the Black Sea, and Mykonos, Athens, and Ephesus were excellent. Hence if anyone is planning to go to the Black Sea I would think again. Read Less
