Greek Sea Cruises by Date

Ancient Jordan to Classical Greece

Amman to Athens
March 18 - April 5, 2016

For mouthwatering natural beauty and outstanding archaeological sites, there are few journeys in the world that can compare with this cruise which combines Jordan with the Greek Islands and Turkey. The quality of the light, the clear waters of the Red Sea and Mediterranean, and drama of the landscapes have inspired writers, poets and artists since the time of Homer.

Your journey starts in Jordan where you will visit the world famous desert city of Petra, the capital, Amman and the Graeco-Roman ruins at Jerash. Then enjoy a daytime transit of the Suez Canal en route to Cyprus and the chance to see the impressive 2nd century AD stadium at Kourion. In the Aegean, visit some of the finest Hellenistic and Roman ruins to be found anywhere, like Ephesus, Aphrodisias and the splendid monuments in Delos. Enjoy the beauty of Santorini before finishing your journey with an unforgettable two-night hotel stay in Athens.
