The striking coastline of Ashdod in Israel’s Holy Land has witnessed the evolution of history since the Biblical prophet Jonah. Amongst the most celebrated sites are the Temple Mount, the Dome of the Rock, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Wailing Wall. Here you will have the opportunity to explore two of the world’s most celebrated cities, Bethlehem and Jerusalem.
Bustling Limassol is Cyprus’ cultural hub and tourist centre. Its streets are lined with colourful cafes, bars and restaurants. To complement the modern attractions, the lively city also has the historic monument of Limassol Castle and a collection of ancient treasures on show in the Cyprus Medieval Museum. Unveil the UNESCO-listed archaeological site of Pafos, and the legend of Aphrodite’s Rock.
The idyllic Greek island of Rhodes is home to one of the nation’s most iconic landmarks – the Acropolis at Lindos. The island also has a bounty of beautiful beaches, majestic medieval fortification ruins and an enchanting Old Town to discover. Explore the labyrinth of quaint cobblestone streets that instantly transport you back in time to the days of the Byzantine Empire.
The historically significant Turkish city of Kusadasi is bathed in glorious sunshine for 300 days of the year so make sure you wear plenty of sunblock and a hat as you explore the iconic ruins on our complimentary tour to ancient Ephesus. Before you come back onboard, feel free to browse the stalls for souvenirs and trinkets in the Grand Bazaar near the harbour.
Known for ancient industry and silver-mining, this humble town on the tip of the Attica Peninsula is making a comeback. Lavrio’s marina, beaches and mineral museum attract groups with time to explore, but even a fleeting visit leaves an impression. Meet restauranteurs boasting locally caught octopus and stuffed squid, and taverna hosts who welcome you like a friend returning from sea.
A day at sea gives you the opportunity to explore the ship’s array of amenities, take full advantage of the onboard activities and indulge in our chef’s exquisite cuisine. Kick back and soak up the sun as we treat you to complimentary drinks from the bar. Alternatively, why not participate in handicrafts, language lessons, traditional dancing, games or exercise. There’s plenty to do.
At the northern end of Egypt’s iconic Suez Canal, the city of Port Said evokes an entrancing air of nostalgia. It boasts a raised pedestrian boardwalk that runs along the scenic waterfront, offering fabulous views of the canal’s entry point. The surrounding late 19th-Century buildings and properties flaunt a certain charm that magically transports you to a bygone era.
The seaside city is mentioned frequently in the Old Testament, but with plenty of modern appeals, Ashdod is much more than its past. Located on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, it has a diverse population of some 250,000, well-kept beaches, a boardwalk with restaurants and cafes and a prestigious marina. Beyond the beaches, Ashdod offers various attractions such as the “Etgarim (Extreme Sports) Park,” wonderful public artworks on display and more.
