Depends on your Citizenship

Canadians & American citizens:
If you are flying into or out of Turkey yes you need a VISA if you are flying into turkey you can get one at the airport .
If you are stopping on a cruise in Turkey eg: Ephesus
You do NOT need a visa

All tourists arriving in Russia require a visa.
If you take a ship organized tour , you might not require a visa. If you want to do your own thing ,one is required . Cost is about 500USD

SS Ithaca , Volendam , Mariner of the Seas (x2) , Veendam , Coral Princess , Island Princess (x3) , Emerald Princess,Sapphire Sapphire (x3),Diamond Princess

Went on Princess Mediterrean Cruise in June. Turkey was one of the stops, did not need Visa. Your ticket agent should be able to tell you if any of your stops need visas. It's very important, as I was told if one of your stops needs a visa, even if you don't get off at that stop, yyou will not be allowed to board the ship at embarkation without the proper papers. Good luck.

If you arrive and depart Turkey by cruiseship, then you don't need any visa. Everyone is given a daily landing card from the ship/customs when disembarking so that's all that's needed.
