Egypt & Eastern Mediterranean

Sail Date: April 2012
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Safaga

The main reason we chose this cruise was the itinerary and also it was a repositioning cruise lasting 11 days.
We sailed from Sharm on the Thursday night and spent our first day in Port Sokhna for those wanting a visit to Cairo. The following day was spent sailing north through the Suez Canal, we were ship number 2 in a convoy of 25 and the scenery encountered was exciting & varied as we headed off to Alexandria where we spent Sunday morning before setting sail for Ashdod in Israel where we spent 2 days.Nothing much in Ashdod so an excursion recommended. Don't miss out on the duty free shop in Ashdod port (prices can't be beaten).
Wednesday spend exploring Larnaca then off to Alanya in Turkey (great place for buying your "designer" gear. Next day in Fethiye one of the most scenic places I have visited in Turkey. Ag Nik in Crete was next then our last day in Rhodes before heading for our disembarkation port in Marmaris.
We have cruised 4 times now on the Celebration and on More previous cruises have had a de-luxe cabin but due to our late booking we had an outside cabin on deck 1 which was comfortable enough but a little noisy when docking etc.You also have the waves lapping against your port hole but you get used to this and it sends you to sleep at night.
Overall a great cruise and would recommend a repostioning cruise for greater variety. Less
