Port Said, Egypt

We arrive this morning in Port Said, the jumping off point for our optional all-day excursion to Cairo – city of mystery, the Sphinx and the Great Pyramids at the Giza Necropolis. It’s an ideal day for connoisseurs of ancient history (and souvenir shoppers!). Return to the ship by 22:00 for the ship to join the Canal Convoy at 22:30. Start transit of Suez Canal.

Port Said, Egypt

Suez Canal Crossing, Egypt

A full day’s cruise crossing the Suez Canal, built by Ferdinand de Lesseps and opened in 1869. It may look small on the map, but it’s 101 miles long, about 350 yards wide and 80 feet deep. Now owned by Egypt over 17,000 ships make the transit every year bringing $3 Billion in revenue. Afternoon canal exit in Suez. Overnight at sea to Hurghada.

Temple of Hatshepsut

Gubal islands or El Gouna – Hurghada, Egypt

We arrive around lunchtime in either Gubal or El Gouna. After stopping for a swim we’ll fire-up the BBQ on deck. Later this evening we arrive in Hurghada for dinner and an overnight in port.

Luxor

Hurghada – Luxor Egypt

We disembark this morning and board a bus to transfer to Luxor, for an overnight stay in a selected deluxe hotel, all included as part of your cruise itinerary. The reason for the visit to this wonderful city, on the site of ancient Thebes, the Pharaoh’s capital at the height of their power, is the opportunity to join an optional excursion to visit the temples of Karnak and Luxor. Overnight in Luxor hotel.

Petra , Jordan

Luxor – Hurghada, Egypt

Our optional excursion today crosses the River Nile to discover the Valley of the Kings, the Hatschepsut Temple, dedicated to the only ever female Pharaoh, and the Colossi of Memnon. This afternoon we return to Hurghada to re-embark the ship. Overnight at sea to Aqaba.

Coral Colony in Eilat

Aqaba, Jordan

Mid-day arrival in Aqaba where the major attraction is the option to visit the world famous Wadi Rum, one of UNESCO’s protected World Heritage Sites since 2005. The name Wadi Rum translates as either ‘Valley of light sand’, or ‘Roman Valley’ due to the propensity of Roman architecture in the area. Somewhat confusingly others know it as the ‘Valley of the Moon’. One thing for sure, it’s the largest desert valley in Jordan and the sandstone and granite landscape has been used as an extra-terrestrial surface in numerous science-fiction films. Overnight in port.

Eilat

Aqaba

We disembark after breakfast to board the transfer back to Tel Aviv. Alternatively, you can make an optional all-day excursion transfer to Tel Aviv via Jerusalem which includes a stop and lunch in Masada.
