Amongst others, Thessaloniki hosts the residence (today a museum within the Turkish consulate) where Kemal Ataturk was born in 1881, the 15th century Imaret Aladja mosque, as well as the Bey Hamam baths -- alternately known as the "Baths of Paradise" -- built in 1444 by Sultan Murat II, the most important monument of its kind in Greece.

The cruiseship's first visit will take place on May 23 and another five will follow until Oct. 19.
