PORTS OF CALL

Athens, (Piraeus), Greece -

Athens (Piraeus), Greece

Santorini, Greece -

Santorini, Greece

Here on the island of Santorini, you’ll find a classic Greek seascape—whitewashed houses accented by sea-blue roofs. This is a treasure trove for both professional and amateur archeology buffs, with sites that include tombs that date back to the 9th century and the sanctuary of Apollo.

Rhodes, Greece -

Rhodes, Greece

Rhodes, the friendliest city in the Mediterranean, is situated at the island’s northernmost point. This sunny retreat is also home to many historic sites, such as the ruins of the Temple of Venus and the medieval Street of Knights.

At Sea - Cruising - Cruising

Haifa, Israel -

Haifa, Israel

The largest city in northern Israel has an incredible history. This spectacular city rises dramatically from the Mediterranean on terraced hillsides, which culminate with Mount Carmel. From that viewpoint on a cruise to Haifa, all the world seems to lie at your feet.

Jerusalem (Ashdod), Israel -

Jerusalem (Ashdod), Israel

Sacred to three of the world's major religions, Jerusalem is one of the world's oldest cities. With a history dating back to 4000 BC, the ravages of time and generational conflicts have not crumbled its fascinating architecture.
