Azamara Pursuit
Sailing: April 23, 2022

A timeless voyage that excites and surprises

You’ll embark on this inspiring voyage from Athens, Greece. After a relaxing day at sea, we'll arrive the following morning in Alexandria, Egypt — a legendary city in the midst of a modern transformation. With a late-night departure, you'll have plenty of time to explore ancient architecture (like the Roman Amphitheater) or travel beyond the city to visit the Giza Pyramids. Next, we'll visit Port Said, Egypt, the northern point of entry of the Suez Canal. Then, we'll depart for an overnight stay in Jerusalem.

A spiritual city, Jerusalem is diverse and distinct. Make a pilgrimage to Mt Zion, or stroll the Garden of Gethsemane — home to some of the oldest olive trees in the world. If you prefer your history in a museum, explore the Israel Museum. Of particular significance here is the Heikhal HaSefer (Shrine of the Book), the home of the Dead Sea Scrolls. You can also visit the Dead Sea — the lowest point on Earth — while we're in Jerusalem.

From here, it's off to another overnight stay — this time in Haifa. Situated in the shadow of a meticulously manicured Baha'i shrine and tropical garden, Haifa is a gateway to many holy sites, including Nazareth, Galilee, and the River Jordan.

Bidding a fond farewell to Israel, we'll arrive in Limassol, Cyprus for a late night stay in a bustling port that has earned its reputation as "the town that never sleeps". Then, it's another day aboard your boutique hotel at sea before arriving in Ephesus, Turkey. In this ancient Greco-Roman city, new discoveries are being unearthed every day. Your voyage concludes with an overnight stay in exotic and inviting Istanbul — where epicures can explore Turkish delights, such as kebaps, pilav, and doner.
