A joint excursion with the Dead Sea and Masada. Both were fascinating. Got about an hour to float in the Dead Sea--some folks got the mud treatment but it wasn't obvious to us how to do that. Masada is massive with remarkable construction that included plentiful water up to this outcrop in the middle of nowhere that became King Herod's winter palace. Alas, the heroic tale of this being the last bastion of the Jewish freedom fighters who ended their own lives rather than become enslaved by the Romans is not supported by archaeological evidence. This is the excursion that put our health in jeopardy due to the poor condition of the bus including no air conditioning as we drove back to the port. We endured one hour 45 minutes of stress and dehydration before being switched to another bus. We were disappointed by Oceania's lukewarm and belated response to a near-catastrophe with a tour company that obviously has issues.

The guide in Masada was terrible and not informative at all about where we were travelling through (west Bank) or anything about the country itself. On Masada he was ok. But I would have liked a lot more information.
