This is the cruise where possibly nothing prepares you for the awe-inspiring spectacle of the real thing. We’re talking Gods, Kings and Pharaohs; land simmering in the sun, steeped in myth and religion, legend and history; a time span from Tutankhamen to Lawrence of Arabia; timeless monuments and epic battles, diverse cultures and some of the most ancient civilisations in the world.

It all sounds very dramatic, but when you factor in the friendliness of the local people, a relaxed ambience, and impeccable service on board a sleek boutique-size air-conditioned mega yacht, what you get is a truly memorable voyage through the centuries. It blends the enduring and endearing histories of the region, and the breathless beauty of its sea, cities and coast in a sophisticated and intimate modern-day experience. There are two one-way itineraries sailing for seven nights on Saturdays from Suez to Aqaba or the reverse.

Ports of call: Ashdod, Port Said, Suez, Hurghada, Sharm el Sheikh, Aqaba, Aqaba, Eilat

The Weather

One of the reasons this region is so popular with visitors is the moderate to warm temperatures during this time of year. The weather during the cruise season (December to early March) is rather warm in the Red Sea (22c to 25c). Temperatures do tend to drop during the night due to the clear skies.
