Petra to the Parthenon aboard Hebridean Sky

Experience four countries (Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Greece) and distinct ancient cultures that span 5,000 years of history on this 14-day journey aboard the all-suite Hebridean Sky, gazing upon true modern marvels in addition to a fascinating mix of historic wonders. Begin at the ancient Spice Route outposts of Jordan’s Petra and Saudi Arabia’s Mada’in Saleh before exploring Egypt’s iconic pyramids of Giza and mysterious Sphinx, the mummies of Cairo’s National Museum, and the tombs of the Valley of the Kings. Continue to the Bronze Age city of Knossos on Crete, then experience the glory of Greece’s Acropolis, including the mighty Parthenon. Jump forward thousands of years while the ship transits the modern engineering marvel of the Suez Canal, and be immersed in local culture with a traditional lunch at a Wadi Rum desert camp and a horse ride to the gates of Petra.

Along the way, enjoy engaging presentations by knowledgeable local guides and a team of onboard lecturers, including two archaeologists and a classicist, who will bring ancient times to life and help put people and places into historical context. As you cruise between destinations, relax in a suite aboard the ideally sized Hebridean Sky, enjoying the small ship atmosphere, delicious meals, attentive service, and views of stunning seaside landscapes.
