On April 25, 1915, this small cove on the Gallipoli peninsula became the site of the Gallipoli landings. The ship will remain at anchor off the bay where you'll stay on board for a commemorative service, with some time for reflection.
This tiny scenic cove on Turkey's Gallipoli peninsula became famous when the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) landed here on April 25, 1915, ready to undertake their first battle of World War I. During a devastating struggle with Turkish troops, which later became known as the Battle of Gallipoli, thousands of lives on both sides were lost.
While sailing by this historic place, your port lecturer will point out any discernable memorials standing on the battlegrounds as well as numerous cemeteries that hold the graves of some 22,000 fallen soldiers.
