Total length of cruise: 11 - nights

Piraeus (Athens), Greece
Athens has quite a reputation to live up to. Named for Athena, Goddess of Wisdom, the city is credited with being the cradle of European civilization and birthplace of democracy. Ruins and relics of its glory days are scattered throughout the modern city, popping up where you least expect them. Its crowning glory is the Acropolis, perched atop a hillside, and covered in carved and columned temples of varying degrees of antiquity.
Not quite so old is the Plaka, an appealing neighborhood for a stroll down cobblestone streets, past old mansions and a plethora of outdoor tavernas ideal for watching the world go by, while munching tasty Greek snacks.

Dikili (Pergamum), Turkey
The popular summer resort town of Dikili, tucked away on the Northwest side of Turkey’s Aegean region, is relatively untouched by tourism, but with its historic and natural charms, it may not be able to hold on to its quiet reputation for long.
Dikili’s picturesque coastal area dates back 5000 BC, and it’s easy to see the remnants of ancient times. Choose from therapeutic hot springs and thermal mud baths, or surround yourself with the rich and diverse history of the ruins of Atarneus, the stunning Acropolis theatre at the city of Pergamon, or the wooden Merkez Mosque, built in 1789 and without the use of nails.
Explore the dormant volcanic crater Lake Kargol, the Nebiler waterfall and caves, and the Denizkoy and Bademli beaches, or sit in the shadow of the hillside at one of the many harborside restaurants for seafood, Turkish specialties, and beautiful landscapes.

Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
Kusadasi is your port of access to an age-old civilization. Ephesus was once the second largest metropolitan area in the Roman Empire, eclipsed only by Rome herself. Explore this city of construction both monumental and mundane. It was famed for the Temple of Artemis, one of the wonders of the ancient world; the Library of Celsus, with its thousands of scrolls; and its amphitheater, with a capacity of 24,000 spectators. But you can also imagine yourself in the sandals of a resident as you stroll the streets, past marketplaces, and into bath complexes that offered piped-in hot water, massage, and sauna.

Rhodes (Lindos), Greece
Sailing into this port two millennia ago, you would have been stunned by the guardian 100-foot Colossus of Rhodes. Then as now the sun would likely have been shining, as Rhodes is said to have more fine days than anywhere else in Europe.
Today diverse historical influences are evident in an old town remarkably intact—in particular the medieval presence of the Knights of St. John, who occupied the island as a bastion of Christendom against the Turks. They left behind a turreted gateway citadel, and a fortified palace complete with crenellated walls, moat, and drawbridges.

Alexandria, Egypt
Just a small fishing village when appropriated by Alexander the Great in 332 BC, Alexandria grew to be a major player in the commerce and politics of the ancient world, and an important center of learning. In fact the Library of Alexandria was tasked with acquiring the world's cumulative knowledge for its collection. Here Euclid invented geometry, and Caesar met Cleopatra.
Though little remains of the ancient city, as the new one was built on top of it, it remains a gateway to Cairo, the pyramids, and the fascinating history and vibrant culture of one of the world's oldest civilizations.

Port Said, Egypt
On the northeastern coast of Egypt lies Port Said, which dates back to 1859 when it was a working camp to house the men building the Suez Canal. Since it’s now the entry point to the Suez Canal by the Mediterranean Sea, Port Said makes for the perfect place to watch huge ships wait in line to enter the canal. But let’s be honest. We’re not here to do a little naval gazing.
Because with our early morning arrival and late-night stay in Port Said, we have plenty of time to explore the incredible sites of Cairo, including the Great Pyramid of Giza—the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World still in existence—go on a Jeep safari in the desert, see the treasures of Tutankhamun at the Egyptian Museum, and even take a cruise down the river Nile. There’s even time to see exactly what the Sphinx is looking at…which is probably best left a not-so-ancient secret.

Ashdod (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.
There's also the Via Dolorosa, where you can walk the Stations of the Cross, along a route of narrow, winding lanes, over paving stones some of which were in place at the time of Christ.

Haifa (Nazareth), 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.
Haifa is an excellent base for visiting biblical and archaeological sites. Within easy reach are the Galilee, Nazareth, the River Jordan, as well as Safed, a holy mountaintop city steeped in the mysticism of Kaballah. Today it is also immersed in the arts, and studios and galleries abound.

Patmos, Greece
There is no missing the Monastery of St. John, a massive dark fortress atop a hill, standing out against the traditional white houses of the village of Hora that surround it. It was constructed in the late 11th century to honor St. John the Divine, who is said to have had his apocalyptic vision while in Patmos, leading him to write the Book of Revelation.
The monastery is a warren of interconnecting courtyards, arcades, galleries, and roof terraces. There are lovely chapels, some with 12th century frescoes; the treasury exhibits an impressive array of art; and the library contains a wealth of historic texts. Designated as “The Holy Island” by the Greek Parliament in 1981, Patmos is also a UNESCO World Heritage site.
