this season that are set to take passengers on a wonderful historical trip of a lifetime.

"These are two of our lengthier cruises, featuring overnight calls in Aqaba and Safaga, giving our guests more time to discover these fascinating destinations," said David Morris, Silversea's executive vice president of sales and marketing for North America.
"Guests on these voyages will enjoy thought-provoking lectures offering insights and perspectives on the region, plus have ample opportunity to personally explore the culture and monuments of some of the world's greatest ancient civilisations."
The cruises, which depart in October and November, will also have a number of shore excursions on offer for the lucky passengers onboard.
Petra and Luxor, two areas synonymous with history, are among the highlights of the shore excursions itineraries.
