A superb voyage that brings a new meaning to cruising through Christmas. Starting in Athens, you’ll sail to some of the eastern Med’s greatest ports. Once you have drunk your fill of Greece, it’s on to Alexandria, before a bucket list Suez Canal transit. Two days in Luxor are perfect to visit the Valley of the Kings, then it’s hello 2024 as you ring in the New Year during a sea day. An overnight in Dhiba Port provides some lovely Red Sea respite prior to a visit to Petra’s rose hued splendour – surely one of the highlights of this trip.
