When a voyage fuses as much mystery and history together, then you know it is going to be good! Starting in the shadow of the Acropolis, sail first to Heraklion, home of the Venetian Church of Agios Minas. A day at sea and a Suez Canal transit bring you to Sharm el Sheik. An overnight in Safaga is ideal for visiting Egypt’s Luxor and the unmissable Valley of the Kings. Petra is next, followed by days at sea, Jeddah, Salalah and an overnight in Muscat.
