Historic Cruises in the Suez Canal

This man-made waterway runs through Egypt, connecting the Mediterranean Sea with the Red Sea. Construction was completed back in 1869 after taking 10 years to build, and since that time the Suez Canal has proved to be a vital transport link between Europe and Asia.

On Historic Cruises in the Suez Canal, travellers will have the chance to sail the length of this waterway, between Port Said in the north and Port Tawfiq in the south. The canal is narrow and mainly single-file traffic but it has two passing places, one at the Ballah By-Pass and one at the Great Bitter Lake. Whichever voyage you choose to embark on, the trip along the Suez Canal will certainly be a highlight. Spend a day relaxing aboard the Aegean Odyssey, either in the comfortable lounge or outside on the sundeck, and watch as the sensational views along the banks of the Suez Canal drift past you.

A World of Cruising

Destinations on Historic Cruises in the Suez Canal

The great thing about the Suez Canal, and the reason for its construction all those years ago, is that it makes voyages between Europe and Asia much shorter, preventing ships from having to circumnavigate the African continent.

For holidaymakers, the Suez Canal has opened up so many more possibilities in terms of exciting destinations and tempting itineraries. You might decide to embark on a fascinating cruise along the River Nile, visiting places like Cairo, Luxor and the Valley of the Kings, and sail into the Suez Canal and out again before continuing on to Turkish shores. Or you could take an incredible tour of India, calling at cities such as Jaipur, Agra and Delhi, before continuing by ship through the Suez Canal and out into the Mediterranean Sea.

Historic Cruises in the Suez Canal offer so much variety to the discerning holidaymaker, it is difficult to choose just one itinerary. No matter which voyage you decide to take, your journey aboard the Aegean Odyssey will be incredible.

Carrying only 350 passengers at a time, the interior is spacious, modern and stylish, and the crew deliver an unbeatable service. Whether it’s fine dining in a choice of restaurants, relaxing by the pool on the sundeck, or listening to interesting talks in the lecture theatre, your time on board Historic Cruises in the Suez Canal will be unforgettable.
