Egypt & Red Sea Cruises

The Red Sea is a part of the Indian Ocean which lies between Africa and Asia. Countries which border the Red Sea include Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Israel and Jordan. Known for its clear blue waters, beautiful coral reefs and varied marine life, the Red Sea is very popular with divers. Here you’ll find pristine beaches, year-round sunshine and lots of fascinating ancient history

Top Red Sea cruise destinations

  • Egypt - Experience the wonders of the ancient pyramids, temples and tombs or visit bustling markets where you’ll find a huge range of wares.
  • Israel – Here you’ll find UNESCO World Heritage Sites aplenty, including the old town of Jerusalem and the Baha’i Shrine in Haifa.
  • Jordan – Visit the lost city of Petra – an entire city carved into a sandstone cliff, see the ancient Roman Theatre and the amazing Royal Tombs.

See Red Sea Cruises

The Red Sea is rarely visited as a cruise destination itself. Instead, you’ll find that cruise ships pass through the Red Sea on longer voyages between Asia and the Mediterranean via the Suez Canal. Sailing through the 100-mile-long Suez Canal is an unforgettable experience. Sit out on the top deck and you’ll feel as though your ship is slicing through the dry desert.

Visiting Egypt

Egypt has several cruise ports that are gateways to some of ancient Egypt's most splendid sights, such as the Great Pyramids at Giza, and the ancient city of Alexandria.

If you'd like to explore more of Egypt to see the Valley of the Kings, Valley of the Queens and the incredibly sites of antiquity at Luxor, taking a cruise down the River Nile is the perfect way to do that. Out sister company RiveryVoyages.om specialise in river cruises all over the world, and can offer Nile river cruises with any of the world's river cruise lines.
