About Red Sea

There couldn’t be a bigger misnomer than the ‘Red Sea’, for it is in this Middle Eastern region that a stark desert landscape melds with sapphire waters. This is truly one of the planet’s most fascinating seascapes.

The Red Sea is located between Asia and Africa. At the extreme north of this cylindrical body of water is the Sinai Peninsula. From here, the Red Sea flows over 1000 miles south to join the Indian Ocean, between Ethiopia and Yemen.

Our itinerary in this astonishingly beautiful region also takes you to some of the world’s most coveted historical sights, to the land of the land of Pharos. Yes, there are excursions to the Valley of Kings, a glimpse of Tutankhanum's tomb and the jaw-dropping open-air museum at Luxor in Egypt.

Ports of call in Jordan include the world-class seaside resort city of Aqaba, where you can find some of the best dive sights in the world. Our guests also tour the Petra, the fabled and prehistoric ‘rose-red city’ in Jordan, situated strategically on an ancient highway linking Arabia, Egypt and Syria. Also take a trip back to Biblical times with a tour of the Monastery of St Catherine at the foot of Mount Horeb, where the Old Testament records Moses receiving the Tablets.

And, remember, all this on a cruise that exudes luxury and sophistication, so not a moment goes by without you feeling special.
