Situated on a striking cove on the Gulf of Oman, ringed by striking volcanic mountains and guarded by two ancient Portuguese forts, diminutive Muscat is the capital of the Sultanate of Oman. Its architecture is a picturesque blend of Arab, Indian, African and European styles. Look for the sultan’s palace at the water’s edge, or visit the important national museum.

Like a magic carpet spread before the sea, Oman’s coastal plain is one of the most fertile areas of Arabia. Famous since antiquity as the source of frankincense, Salalah was already a prosperous town when Marco Polo visited it in the 13th century! Inland rise the forbidding Al-Quarà Mountains, and the desolate “Empty Quarter” of central Saudi Arabia.

Situated at the top of its namesake gulf, Aqaba brings a refreshing release from the rose-colored desert to the north. Its sandy beaches and coral reefs are the most pristine on the Red Sea, and Jordanians hope to preserve them through careful planning. Beyond the modernity of Aqaba itself, the UNESCO treasure of Petra – an ancient rock-carved Nabataean city once lost to the Western world – and the wonders of the Wadi Rum await discovery.

On the Red Sea coast, this small city offers beautiful beaches and glorious weather, even snorkeling and diving among the offshore reefs.

Wind patterns make this an ideal site for kitesurfing, and the uprising of world-class resorts have brought many modern conveniences to visitors’ fingertips. A call here serves as gateway to the Pyramids of Giza and soon, the new Grand Egyptian Museum, now slated to open in 2020 as the world’s largest archaeological museum.

From day to night, Marmaris is alive with activity. Shops, restaurants and a bustling waterfront dock sparkle under sun and stars alike. Beyond the buzz lie historical sites and natural landscapes characteristic of this pivotally positioned locale, including Caunos archaeological site, the meandering Dylan River and lovely Isztuzu Beach, where sea turtles can be spotted sunning themselves.

Date 10/04/2023
Location Santorini Thira, Greece
In 07:00
Out 18:00

Of all the Cyclades Islands, Santorini is often considered the most dramatic. Once an active volcano, it was known as Stongyle, or the Round Island. In about 1500 BC, the volcano erupted with such force that the center of the island literally exploded, leaving the haunting submerged crater into which Crystal Serenity sails. The island’s small villages were preserved in the ashes and recent excavations have uncovered a fascinating view of everyday life from 3,500 years ago.
Santorini’s dark landscape offsets its simple, yet refined Cycladic buildings, which glimmer in the sunlight. The rich volcanic soil is ideal for grapes and the local vines produce a cherished crop known for its “special volcanic taste.”
Thíra, or Fira Town, is laid out along the edge of a cliff that partially forms the rim of the now extinct caldera. A picturesque site, it exudes charm and an atmosphere of leisure that can be attributed to the easy-going Greek lifestyle.
