Voyages to Antiquity steers clear of Libya and Syria

Voyages to Antiquity has revised its November programme due to the continuing difficulties in Libya and Syria.

The November 8 departure, now called Ancient Wonders and the Holy Land, will feature a two-day excursion to Jerusalem and Bethlehem with the chance of a dip in the Dead Sea.

The final cruise of the 2011 season, now called The Red Sea, Petra and Suez Canal, will depart on November 19, and feature a pre-cruise stay of two nights in Amman, the Jordanian capital, plus a night in the ancient, rose-red city of Petra.

Both cruises also include an overnight stay on board the Aegean Odyssey in Beirut with an included excursion to Baalbeck, the ancient site of Heliopolis, plus an overnight hotel stay in Luxor, where guided visits to the temples of Karnak and Luxor as well as the Valley of the Kings have been arranged.

“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. 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,” said David Yellow, managing director of Voyages to Antiquity.
