Board Le Champlain for an 11-day cruise from Aqaba and the Jordanian shores to Valletta, the capital of Malta.  As you sail along the waters of the Near East on this journey through the Eastern Mediterranean, the cultural discoveries and stunning landscapes are sure to impress you.

After your embarkation in Aqaba, your first port of call will be Eilat in Israel. You will be able to discover the majestic fortress of Massada looming over the Dead Sea.

You will sail on to Egypt, where you will call at Ain Sukhna in the northern Gulf of Suez. This Egyptian city is the departure point for discovering the wonders of Ancient Egypt, such as the pyramids of Giza and the Colossus of Ramesses II.

Your adventure continues as you cross the world-famous Suez Canal, built by Ferdinand de Lesseps and widened recently to facilitate trade. Then, its onwards to Rhodes, whose old medieval town, built by the Knights of St John, is surrounded by ramparts. It is the largest of the Dodecanese islands and was once home to one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World: its famous Colossus

After visiting a Greek Island, you will venture to Turkey, where you will call at Kusadasi. An old fishing village with history going back 5,000 years, not far from the Ephesus site, the town is now one of the country’s most famous seaside resorts.
 
Your ship will take you to the southern Aegean Sea to discover the capital of Crete, Heraklion, built on a hillside overlooking the port and encircled by formidable Venetian walls.

The cruise comes to an end in Valletta, capital of the island of Malta and the former stronghold of the Knights of the Order of Malta.
