With exactly one month to go before Christmas, many are looking ahead to 2011.  For the cruise addicts among us, that also means the time to begin planning your Summer 2011 voyage is now.  If the cold has you chattering your teeth and spending fifteen minutes at a stretch bundling up before venturing outside, Regent Seven Seas Cruises has the cure: a 10-day voyage aboard Seven Seas Mariner from Athens to Istanbul.

Departing Wednesday July 6, 2011, this amazing cruise takes guests to some of the most historic sights of the Eastern Mediterranean.  It offers an excellent blend of big-name, must-see ports like Athens and Ephesus, while offering stops in lesser known locales like Nessebur, Bulgaria and Sochi, Russia – home to the XXII Olympic Winter Games in 2014.

The full itinerary:

July 6 – Athens (Piraeus). Greece – Embark & depart at 8pm
July 7 – Ephesus (Kusadasi), Turkey
July 8 – Cruise the Bosphorus Straits
July 9 – Yalta, Ukraine
July 10 – Sochi, Russia
July 11 – Cruise the Black Sea
July 12 – Sevastopol, Ukraine
July 13 – Odessa, Ukraine
July 14 – Constanta (Bucharest), Romania
July 15 – Nessebur, Blugaria
July 16 – Istanbul, Turkey – Disembark 8am.

Fares for this unique voyage start at $7,999 per person and include free roundtrip airfare from most US and Canadian gateways; free unlimited shore excursions; a free luxury hotel package including a 1-night stay in a luxury hotel pre-cruise, including transfers from the airport to the hotel and hotel to the ship, breakfast, and porterage.

The Seven Seas Mariner is an all-suite, all-inclusive ship.  This means even the most affordable stateroom is a substantial upgrade over mainstream lines, and the all-inclusive nature of the vessel means you won’t be fishing out that keycard to pay for drinks.  Ever.
