Itinerary

Port Said
Day 1-2
Established in 1859 during the opening of the Suez Canal, Port Said features the elegant Waterfront Quarter, with landmarks like the Suez Canal House and the Military Museum of Port Said. Serving as a gateway to Cairo, it provides access to some of the world's most iconic sites like the Pyramids of Giza, the Sphinx, the Grand Egyptian Museum, and the Egyptian Museum with its collection of over 120,000 artefacts, including Tutankhamun's treasures.
Cruising Suez Canal
Day 2
The 193.3 km (120.1 miles) long Suez Canal was completed in 1869 as an artificial waterway connecting the Mediterranean and Red Seas cutting some 7,000 miles off the journey from England to India. Today it is one of the world’s most exciting maritime experiences as ships slowly transit the canal in colossal convoys. The ship seems to glide right through the heart of the desert at sea level.
Sharm El Sheikh
Day 3
Sharm El Sheikh is a bustling resort town renowned for its reliable weather tucked between the desert of Sinai and the Red Sea. Sharm’s clear waters are filled with colourful fish and coral, such as at the site at Ras Mohammed, making it one of the world's best snorkelling spots. Inland, the 6th-century St Catherine’s Monastery and the Chapel of the Burning Bush, are at the foot of Mount Sinai where Moses received the Ten Commandments from God.
Aqaba
Day 4
Aqaba, Jordan's sole port city, serves as the gateway to the ancient city of Petra. The narrow rock-carved passageway, the Siq, leads to the monumental Treasury, a 2,000-year-old marvel carved from salmon-pink sandstone with an intricate facade. Aqaba is also celebrated for its diving attractions, including the Yamanieh coral reef within the Aqaba Marine Park.
Safaga
Day 5-6
The small Red Sea port of Safaga is a world-renowned diving, surfing and kite-surfing spot, while camel riding and jeep safaris explore the desert inland. The town is also well placed to head to the fascinating Valley of the Kings and Karnak Temple in Luxor. Dating from around 2050 BC and dedicated to the gods of Amun, Mut and Khonsu, the vast 200-acre complex of temples at Karnak contain the largest religious buildings anywhere in the world.
Day at sea
Day 7
Sea days are rarely dull. Take the time to sit back and let the world go by. The ship’s observation decks provide stunning views of the passing ocean. A day at sea gives you the opportunity to mingle with other passengers and share your experiences of this incredible trip or head to our library which is stocked full of reference books. Get an expert’s view in one of our on-board lectures or perhaps perfect your photography skills with invaluable advice from our onboard professional photographers.
Yanbu
Day 8-9
Yanbu, a port city on the Red Sea, serves as the gateway to historic Medina, the cradle of 7th-century Islamic culture where Prophet Muhammad lived and taught. The Prophet's Mosque, adorned with ten minarets, is a significant site. Yanbu claims pristine beaches, exceptional dive sites and a scenic Corniche promenade. The Old Town's traditional buildings include mosques, souks and hammams.
Yanbu, Ras Al Baradi Beach
Day 9
Ras Al Baradi Beach in Yanbu is famous for its white sandy shores and as a crucial nesting area for hawksbill and green turtles. Yanbu offers a vibrant souk and the Yanbu Al Nakhl archaeological site with its ancient structures and shrines. Inland, Madinah is the second holiest city in Islam, featuring the grand 10-minareted Prophet's Mosque, housing the Prophet's tomb. In 625 AD, 3,500-ft-high Mount Uhud was the site of a significant battle.
Jeddah
Day 10-11
Jeddah is a beguiling mix of old and new, from the floating Al Rahma Mosque built directly on the azure waters to the New Jeddah Corniche, a 30-km waterfront boardwalk, bustling with restaurants, cafes and sculptures. Al Balad, Jeddah’s UNESCO listed old town, dates back to the 7th century with beautiful buildings and an ancient souk. The mighty Jeddah Tower will be the world’s first kilometre-high building once it’s completed.
