two leisurely days at sea, I'm confused by all the difference Seas we
are passing through – Ionian, Aegean, Marmara, Bosphorus Strait,
Canakkale Strait (Dardenelles Strait) – and have to keep looking at

We hit all the major sites: Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, etc. But also still managed to revisit all the best restaurants, the Black Sea Beach, a Bosphorus boat ...
