Heart of the Black Sea

August 4-13, 2021

It's time to travel again and explore the world.  Delve into the Heart of the Black Sea, where ancient civilizations and modern history convene.  Sail through history in one of the most exotic regions in the world.  The Black Sea - connecting Eastern Europe, the Caucasus, and Asia Minor — has many mysteries left to uncover.

  

Source Events is excited to partner with Atlas Ocean Voyages to offer this exclusive Luxe-Adventure around the Black Sea aboard their brand  new  ship, World Navigator, with just 100 suites and cabins.  Best of all, this voyage is ALL-INCLUSIVE ALL THE WAY,  with free international airfare from many U.S. gateways, complimentary premium spirits,  a shore excursion in every port, WiFi, and even gratuities included.

You'll be joining like-minded Source Events LGBT-friendly travelers,  enjoying once-in-a-lifetime experiences and unforgettable destinations. Your Luxe-Adventure begins in historic Odesa, Ukraine.   Get ready to explore the exotic ports of Russia, a melting pot of cultures in Turkey, and first-century Roman ruins in Georgia.   The capstone is spending the night and discovering the modern and ancient city of Istanbul.  

You've come this far, why not stay on board and sail to the Turkish Coast and Greeks Islands on a 7-night cruise from Istanbul to Athens, Aug 13-20, 2021.   Highlights include Ephesus, Santorini, and an overnight night in Mykonos.  And yes,  we'll be offering an extension on Mykonos so you have plenty of time to enjoy its famous gay beaches, great tavernas, entertainment, and even their Xlsior Festival which begins the day we arrive.  Now is the perfect time to plan this summer dreamscape with Source Events and Atlas Ocean Voyages.

World Navigator

Atlas Ocean Voyages

Welcome to your natural habitat. Every deck is designed to bring the outdoors inside so that you are almost never without a transcendent view. Meanwhile, World Navigator also features luxe accommodations, contemporary and airy design, as well as thoughtfully selected amenities, entertainment, restaurants, and bars. 

Select from ten suite and stateroom categories that all feature livable space and comforts. Feel the Mediterranean sun on your face, because every accommodation has an ocean view, with most providing the enhanced experience of ocean breezes and full-moon views from a full walk-out or Juliet balcony. Watch for wildlife from the water's Edge Lookout or the glass-domed Observation Lounge. The views are just a jumpstart. 

Borrow the ship’s complimentary kayaks, camping gear, stand-up paddleboards, bikes, and other equipment and get even closer to nature onshore. We know that relaxation is personal, so you’ll discover assorted ways to unwind onboard. The library is stocked with a large collection of fiction, non-fiction, and periodicals, as well as games. 

Swim laps or just chill in the outdoor heated pool, with two spa hot tubs. Exercise in the ocean air as you jog along the track, or keep your wellness routine going at the gym, personal trainers, yoga, and Pilates.  SeaSpa by L’Occitane is as extraordinary as the name suggests. The first L’Occitane spa on water beckons you with a full menu of soothing and invigorating services featuring the brand’s renowned natural ingredients and Mediterranean art-de-Vivre. While the scent of lavender still lingers on your skin, you might be off to another onboard discovery. 

There’s always something special about the atmosphere on Atlas Ocean Voyages because you’re sharing this unique journey with like-minded modern explorers, starting friendships at the pool, attending fascinating seminars, or enjoying live music over craft cocktails. Sometimes, it’s when you’re farthest away that you feel most at home.
