Suez Canal Transit
Lying at the Red Sea end of the Suez Canal, the busy Egyptian port of Suez can also be your starting point for exciting trips to Cairo and the Pyramids at Giza. If your ship goes through the Canal, be out on deck throughout the transit, as it is one of the world’s most fascinating maritime experiences, creating the bizarre impression that you are sailing right through the dry heart of the desert. The present, 101-mile-long Canal took 15 years to build, was completed in 1869 and shaved a mere 7,000 miles off the journey from England to India. It is the second to cross the Isthmus of Suez – the first was constructed in the 5th century BC and was in use until the 8th century.

Just completed Kenya to Singapore Dec 14/Jan1015. The Safari lead in in Kenya was a disaster with few animals sighted and horrific road travel. So much promised and not delivered. The ship was spotless and the hotel staff the best we have experienced in 22 cruises. Dining experience excellent. Entertainment was non-existent, guest speakers fair but uneven. Tours staff appeared too young and inexperienced. Significant problems with water pipes. Unable to bring CNN and BBC broadcasts. Would not recommend for repositioning cruises.

I had the pleasure of spending 5 night on board the MV Odyssey last year from Athens. From the moment I stepped on board I could see that they have spent a lot of time and effort on the refurb of this vessel. The cabin was very comfortable and the staff very professional and welcoming. The main point of this cruise is that the excursions are included in the cost. I can honestly say that the guides are the best I have every experienced and they really made the sites come alive. All in all it was a great experience and I would highly recommend this ship.
