Embark on an epic journey steeped in centuries of history on our Red Sea Discovery cruise on board our 5-star cultural expedition ship. Departing from Cyprus, we’ll call in at the Egyptian port city on the Mediterranean, Port Said, before spending the day sailing through the Suez Canal en route to the Red Sea. You have plenty of time to discover the charms of the Red Sea, from the beauty of diving in its waters, to the intriguing ports of Sharm El-Sheikh, Aqaba and Safaga, perhaps travelling inland to visit ancient sites such as Cairo, Luxor and Petra. Then it’s time to call in to Saudi Arabia, at the holy city of Medina before exploring some prime diving around Marmar Island. Finally we arrive in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia’s jewel, knowing we’ve seen some of the most colourful places on the Red Sea.
