Empress Cruises is based in Göcek, Turkey, just north of the Greek island of Rhodes. Pick up in nearby ports can be arranged.
In this region, you'll experience beautiful nature, in one of the Mediterranean's most beautiful archipelagos. Under the warm ocean surface, you will find marine life full of beautiful flora and exotic wildlife, excellent for snorkeling.
We cruise along the Aegean coast, the Turkish Riviera almost touching the Greek archipelago. We go ashore, anchoring in the archipelago's beautiful bays, where the water shines brightly turquoise.
The beautiful bays are surrounded by high mountains, often covered with exotic trees that spread a wonderful fragrance. We anchor up in one of the bays before our evening meal and evening swim.
Each morning starts with a morning swim in the bay before breakfast, served at the flybridge.
Days are spent relaxing and swimming in the lovely climate, water skiing and snorkeling. Tours are arranged - visits to such as one of the many beautiful historic sites. For longer cruises we usually pass by the famous king graves och Dalyan where you can relax with a genuine Turkish mud bath, which is said to rejuvenate the visitor with 10 years. There are also several places where you can visit a Turkish Spa - Hammam. Or why not visit a genuine Turkish barberer?
