On this cruise, with excursions from Princess, you will visit part of the Holy Land, and see:
In Ephesus, see The House of the Virgin Mary. The Vatican has recognized this small house in the Solmissos Mountains as a Holy Place. A small shrine dedicated to St. Mary was found when the ruins of the house were first discovered.
In Jerusalem, visit The Garden of Gethsemane which is located within the walled grounds of the Church of All Nations overlooking Jerusalem, this peaceful garden featuring a grove of ancient olive trees is the site where Judas betrayed Christ.
In Nazareth, visit the bank revered by the faithful as the spot where John the Baptist immersed Jesus in the waters of the Jordan.

I’ll be on this cruise with my parents, and will actually be on the next one as well…after returning back to Civitavecchia, we’ll stay on the beautiful Island Princess, and travel to Fort Lauderdale, Florida on a 14 night Trans-Atlantic cruise, visiting Sardinia, Italy; Malaga, Spain, Casablanca, Morocco; (My very first time on the African continent!) and Madeira, Portugal, before crossing the Atlantic.
We can book either of the 14 night cruises, or we can book these as back-to-back cruises, for four weeks on the Island Princess! I’m so excited to get to visit Italy & Greece again, and cannot wait to see Israel, Cyprus, & Turkey. I’m equally excited about visiting Malaga, Spain again, as well as Morocco, which has been on my Bucket List for a very long time.
