Voyages to Antiquity revises Middle East calls

Voyages of Antiquity has cancelled its calls to Libya and Syria following suit of other cruise lines. The company’s 8 November departure will now feature a two-day excursion to Jerusalem and Bethlehem with a chance to swim in the Dead Sea. In addition its final 2011 cruise will now depart on 19 November and will include a two-night pre-cruise stay in Amman and a night in Petra. “We feel both cruises offer guests a great opportunity to visit the best of the Southern Mediterranean and Red Sea, by combining some of the most important archaeological sites in the world within a cruise-tour programme,” said David Yellow, managing director of Voyages to Antiquity. “The addition of the Holy Land will be a highlight for many passengers and we’re delighted that we have been able to reschedule these cruise-tours to such a high standard.” Both itineraries include an overnight stay onboard Aegean Odyssey in Beirut; an excursion to Baalbeck; an overnight stay in Luxor and guided visits to Karnak, Luxor and the Valley of the Kings.
