Overview

During an exceptional cruise, sail Turkish, Egyptian, Israeli and Jordanian shores aboard Le Jacques-Cartier. On this 10-day itinerary, you will set off to discover the marvels of the eastern Mediterranean with its ancient remains and stunning landscapes.

You will board your ship in Antalya. With its Roman port, picturesque narrow streets and beautiful Ottoman homes this town, lying on the southern coast of Turkey, has maintained its many charms.

You will cross the world-famous Suez Canal, built by Ferdinand de Lesseps and widened recently to facilitate trade.

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

Le Jacques-Cartier will then head for Hurghada, a seaside resort renowned for its paradisiacal turquoise waters.

From Safaga port, you will have the chance to discover the region's exceptional underwater treasures, but also Luxor, the ancient city of Thebes and the capital of the pharaohs.

Your last stop will take you into the Sinai Peninsula to Eilat, in Israel. You will be able to discover the majestic fortress of Massada looming over the Dead Sea.

Your journey will end in Aqaba, a Jordanian port city on the shores of the Red Sea.
