On Monday 26 June 2023 E60 Shipping will launch a new passenger and vehicle ferry from Constanta to Poti. This new Black Sea Ferry will travel from Romania to Georgia, offering another option for those travelling from Europe to Asia overland.
The Romania to Georgia ferry will take 48 hours to reach the Black Sea port of Poti in Georgia and connects route E60 which runs from France to Kyrgyzstan following the old Silk Road.
For someone that was about to take the (33) hour bus from Istanbul to Tbilisi for the third time, this is very good news. I will book a place on one of the first sailings to review the service and bring you more info in the coming weeks.
