Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin: Balcony

Almost a year before the cruise, we started researching what was available to visit countries that were a part of our ancient history. Time in Israel was a primary consideration. The initial 21 day Mediterranean cruise was our choice which we booked in February 2019 and booked our air-fare shortly after.

And the dollar-coaster ride began.

Between February and July there were three price reductions bringing the balcony cabin cost from $188 per night to $140 per night. In September we were advised that the cruise was to be shortened to 20 days and be embarking 2/11 instead of 2/10. Also 2 price reductions bringing the nightly cost to $119. It needs to be mentioned that every time the reservation is rewritten, there is a $100 processing fee payable to the travel agent.

Cabin Review


The new cabins are smaller. The specifications listed indicate the cabins are about 30 feet smaller. the older cabins had room for a small couch by the bed, the new ones only have a chair. There is ample closet space as you enter and there is no bathtub, but the handheld shower is nice.
