    Oman, Luxor, and Israel Cruise

    From $8199 $898 taxes

    Like her sister ship, the sturdy Azamara Journey is a mid-sized beauty with a deck plan well-suited to the needs of modern voyagers. You’ll never feel crowded in the comfortable social spaces of our bars, restaurants, lounges, Casino and Cabaret. Nor will you feel like a sardine jammed in around the pool, where our attentive staff is always ready to offer a complimentary bottled water, soft drink or fresh towel. Staterooms feature modern amenities, furnishings, and European linens. And one of the greatest features of this ship is the large number of staterooms with verandas. There’s nothing better than opening your door to the fresh sea air and views. Azamara’s friendly ships are an altogether wonderful place to call your home away from home!

    Dubai, United Arab Emirates
    Everything in Dubai is the biggest, tallest, and the first of its kind, including a manmade island shaped like a palm tree, the world’s first underwater hotel, the world’s fastest rollercoaster, and the Burj Khalifa—the world’s tallest building. Located in the middle of a desert where almost nothing existed 20 years ago, Dubai is a like a futuristic oasis.

    Muscat, Oman
    Meaning “safe anchorage” in Arabic, Muscat has a longstanding relationship with the sea. From its prominence as a trading port in the first century, to its importance as a modern-day commercial center, this elegant town with fine houses has an ocean of things to discover.

    Salalah, Oman
    As the capital of Oman’s Dhofar region, the subtropical city of Salalah is renowned for its khareef, the monsoon season from June to September that transforms this “Perfume Capital of Arabia” into an oasis. But this subtropical city has many other year-round natural sights to behold, including the waterfalls, lakes, mountains, and caves of Wadi Darbat, Mughsail Bay, and some of the most beautiful beaches in Oman.

    Safaga (Luxor), Egypt
    While Safaga has its share of charms, including renowned healing properties of the mineral rich waters of the Red Sea, nearby Luxor is where the main attractions lie. Known as “the world’s greatest open air museum”, the monuments, temples, and tombs found in Luxor are amongst the most impressive in the world.

    Aqaba (Petra), Jordan
    The warm, tranquil waters of the Red Sea are perfect for the growth of corals, and the masses of brilliantly colored fish that live amongst them, making Aqaba a prime attraction for snorkelers and divers. Inland is a vast desert of stark beauty that entranced Lawrence of Arabia when he headquartered in its empty canyons during WWI.

    Suez Canal (Passage)
    Experience the breathtaking illusion of sailing through oceans of desert sand as you cruise the 100-mile Suez Canal, the engineering marvel that connects the Mediterranean and Red Seas, and on its completion in 1869 permanently changed the face of maritime trade. The passage requires no locks, as both bodies of water are at about the same level. Not wide enough to allow two-way passage, three convoys are scheduled to transit the canal on a typical day, two southbound and one northbound.

    Jerusalem, Israel
    Regardless of your faith, philosophy, or grasp of ancient history, you cannot fail to be moved and awed by Jerusalem. This magnificent and holy city has some of the most revered shrines in the world including the Western Wall, last remnant of the ramparts surrounding the Temple of the Jews, which was originally erected by Solomon; and the exquisite Dome of the Rock atop the Temple Mount, the oldest extant Islamic monument, honoring a stone sacred to both Jews and Muslims alike.

    Haifa, Israel
    Haifa is a modern city and seaport on the slopes of Mount Carmel. Along with the mix of religions that make up the fabric of Israel as a whole, Haifa is administrative and spiritual home to the Bahai faith, which preaches the unity of all mankind, and whose golden-domed world center crowns handsome hillside garden terraces.

    Limassol, Cyprus
    A fascinating intersection of cultural influences have shaped Limassol, a vibrant city located in the shadow of the Troodos mountains, on Akrotiri Bay on the southern coast of Cyprus. As one of the busiest ports of the Mediterranean, the city is a robust commercial center for tourism and trade, but remnants of Limassol’s intriguing history practically whisper tales of bygone eras. Known as “the town that never sleeps”, quaint narrow streets are filled with Limassol’s lively character and peppered with tavernas, shops, and bars, where you can find fresh local produce, famous wines and fine handmade goods.

    Athens, Greece
    You could spend a lifetime in Europe’s oldest city and still not see everything it has to offer. Settled over 3,500 years ago, Athens is like a mythological crossroads of the past and present, where modern buildings share the skyline with spectacular ruins like the Parthenon.
