Voyage of Antiquities Silver Spirit Athens to Dubai October 2020

Any Cruise, Anywhere, Any Time

Voyage of Antiquities 2020

Departs 18 October 2020 - 35 nights

Voyage of Antiquities – ancient history, fabled Bible stories and the spirit of the Anzacs will come alive on this extraordinary journey back in time to the storied shores of the eastern Mediterranean.

Join us as we take you on an exotic adventure by land and sea, exploring faraway lands and some of the world’s oldest cultures in Turkey, Greece, Egypt, Jordan, Israel and Oman.

In Turkey, a spectacular hot air balloon ride will reveal the whimsical, other-worldly landscape of Cappadocia, where churches and houses are hewn from rock. The elaborate mosques and buzzing bazaars of Istanbul will take your breath away as will the legends of Troy and its Trojan Horse and the ethereal ruins of temples built millennia ago. On one special day – October 29, 2020 – we will land at dawn by Zodiac on the spiritual sands of Anzac Cove at Gallipoli, pay our personal respects at Lone Pine and host our own commemoration service in what will, undoubtedly, be an emotional day you will always remember. In Greece, more stunning sights await including the monasteries clinging to the cliffs of Meteroa, the ancient, outdoor theatres of Delphi and the mighty Acropolis standing guard over Athens.

After our 17-night exploration overland, we take to the sea for 16 nights aboard the ultra-luxurious Silver Spirit, where every guest is pampered by a butler in an ocean-view suite and where complimentary, premium wines and spirits flow all day long.  This is cruising at its best, with first-class dining and unmatched, intuitive service ensuring you experience the luxury you deserve.  Sailing in style, we’ll journey back in time to the ancient lands of Jordan, Israel, Egypt and Oman where you can visit iconic places like Jerusalem, Bethlehem, the Dead Sea, the awe-inspiring Valley of the Kings and the ancient ‘Rose City’ of Petra – one of the wonders of the ancient world – hidden in a narrow canyon and carved from pink, sandstone cliffs.

Our thrilling journey through history ends in Dubai where the world’s tallest skyscrapers point to the future.

You’ll be hosted and looked after by Cruise Express the whole way so you can relax and take in the many timeless treasures this unique journey will illuminate.
