6 Haifa
Haifa
There's a popular Israeli saying: "Haifa works, Jerusalem prays and Tel Aviv plays." This is not strictly fair to Haifa, the country's third-largest city. While it's home to Israel's biggest and busiest port and has an undeniably bustling, business-like air, there's also a real resort feel about the place. The centre sprawls over the steep, lush face of Mount Carmel; the waterfront is lined with wide, sandy beaches; and the restaurants are famous throughout Israel.
AM PM
7 Ashdod
Ashdod
Ashdod is the fifth-largest city in Israel, located in the Southern District of the country, on the Mediterranean coast, located 32 kilometres (20 mi) south of Tel Aviv and 20 kilometres (12 mi) north of Ashkelon and 53 kilometres (33 mi) west of Jerusalem. Ashdod is an important regional industrial center. The Port of Ashdod is Israel's largest port accounting for 60% of the country's imported goods.

8 Suez Canal Transit
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.

The city of Salalah is known as the “perfume capital of Arabia.” The city is a popular destination for tourism due to the natural attractions of the nearby mountains and abundant stands of frankincense trees lining mountain wadi courses. Around the city and into the mountains the countryside is lush and green during the monsoon period with the vegetation supporting herds of cattle. The climate supports wildlife often more commonly associated with East Africa, such as leopards and hyenas. The beaches and coastline are also major attractions for scuba diving and bird watching.

This was our third cruise on board the Encore, and we loved it. Food and drinks were amazing, with no expense spared, especially at the Thomas Keller grill. Professional, yet friendly staff and a very comfortable ship. Our only slight reservations are the availability and speed of wifi connection and the quality of excursions offered, (we booked our own, independently). Rated as a 6

WE have sailed on all Seabourn ships,from the smallest,the medium,Odyssey,Quest and Sojourn and now the "Flagship that would blow you away" the Encore. Yes the ship is beautiful,the suites are fine as are the public spaces.Only THE GRAND SALON deck 6 is too small,therefore there are TWO shows now.The result is that the dining room is too small for the people who want to see the 8.45 show,it is a cafetaria,with sweating waiters,wine throwing sommeliers,very average food,unhappy customers. As a whole after many happy sailings no more Seabourn for us.When complaining to Seabourn headquarters,the answer was: We are sorry,but your complaint is not typical and have a nice continuation! Well there goes "The best small ship line!! Why not rename Seabourn in Carnaval Boutique?

After reading the one and only shocking review I had to give my opinion. We went on the second leg of the inaugural cruise over Xmas and New year. It was its usual high standard in all areas. We have cruised with this line for about 8 times and have been more than happy. Have booked again in December on one of their other ships which we have cruised before. Will leave a comment after that one.
