The Suez Canal is a main shortcut in circumnavigating the world. Completed in 1869, it runs 101 miles from Port Said in the Eastern Mediterranean to Suez in the Gulf of Suez and eventually the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean. It is the longest canal in the world without locks. During passage, you’ll sail under the Suez Canal Bridge, a fixed bridge with 230-foot clearance that’s also known as the Egyptian-Japanese Friendship Bridge. You’ll also cruise under the El Ferdan Railway Bridge, the longest swing span bridge in the world – 1100 feet. The complete passage takes between 11 and 16 hours at a speed of around 8 knots.
For a truly unforgettable experience, cruise through the Suez Canal. Keep your camera ready so you can capture the beautiful sites and exotic wildlife. Get ready for a vacation you will never forget.

Day 14: Athens (Piraeus), Greece Arrive 06.00 Depart 18.00
The birthplace of democracy and western civilisation, with the crowning glory, the Acropolis, perched atop its plateau under a burnished blue sky. Your best memories may come from losing yourself in the twisting streets of the ancient Plaka district.
Day 15: Katakolon, Greece Arrive 09.00 Depart 18.00

Day 17: Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy Arrive 05.00
Hidden piazzas, opulent baroque churches, classical ruins at every turn. The best of Italian fashion. Countless art galleries, gardens and palaces. If ever there was a place to return to and delve deeper, it’s Rome.
