Sailing: April 14, 2020

Immerse Yourself in Israel

Depart from Athens, Europe’s oldest city, on a 9-night intensive voyage to Cyprus and two welcoming ports in Israel. Enjoy a day at sea before awakening in Limassol, one of the busiest ports of the Mediterranean. Stroll narrow streets lined with shops, bars, tavernas, and explore markets full of fresh local produce and famous wines. History buffs should head for the museums and archaeological sites like Kolossi Castle, the Grand Mosque in the old Turkish quarter, the Archaeological Museum, or the medieval Limassol Castle, built over one thousand years ago.

The next morning you’ll arrive in Haifa, Israel, where a late stay follows an overnight, leaving lots of opportunity to discover biblical and archaeological sites of wonder, including Nazareth, Galilee, the Jordan River, and Elijah’s Cave.

Then, prepare for an overnight in Jerusalem to explore the city in depth. Walk the Stations of the Cross or see some of the most celebrated shrines on earth, including the Western Wall and the exquisite Dome of the Rock atop the Temple Mount. Unwind and enjoy a day cruising at sea (Sanctum Spa treatment anyone?) before spending the day in Heraklion—the largest city on the isle of Crete. You’ll debark from your unforgettable, intensive voyage where you first set sail in Athens.
