Vacation Package Details
The ancient world comes alive on this spectacular cruise tour through four countries formed by the worlds's oldest civilizations.
Your journey begins in Greece, on the slopes of Mount Parnassus high above the Gulf of Corinth. Tour the ancient site of Delphi, where the world's most influential oracle made her history-altering prophecies. Then visit Piraeus, the classical history-filled port city of Athens. Its archaeological museum contains relics dating from as far back as the Bronze Age.
Your first stop aboard your cruise is Kusadasi. The Turkish city once held the famed Temple of Artemis, a Wonder of the Ancient World. Spend a day in Istanbul, the only city in the world that spans two continents. Stop at the tiny Greek island of Patmos, and see the UNESCO-listed cave where the Book of Revelation was penned.
Your next stop is the Israeli city of Ashdod, which houses the world's only museum dedicated to the mysterious Philistine culture. Continue to Haifa, overlooking the Mediterranean from the fertile ridge of Mount Carmel. Explore Limassol, home to many of Cyprus' most important archaeological sites including the centuries-old Limassol Castle. On the Greek Island of Rhodes, visit the fortified Old City and the Acropolis of Lindos, where the Colossus of Rhodes once stood.
After disembarking, enjoy a sightseeing tour of Athens, including its most famous site-the Acropolis. It is topped by the stunning 2,500-year-old Parthenon Temple, built to honor the goddess Athena. You'll always remember this ancient adventure!
