Your Mediterranean and Holy Land Cruise in Detail

Days 1-12

Allow yourself to be tempted by this cruise, retracing the historic steps back through time. From the 'Eternal City' of Rome, relax aboard the Norwegian Jade, taking you to exotic ports and enchanting ancient cities that even the Roman Empire had in their sites.

On a round-trip that incorporates history, culture and jaw-dropping sights throughout the Med, experience Cities and Ports including Rome, Alanya, Limassol, Haifa, Ashdod, Port Said and Alexandria, before returning to Rome.

With so much freedom incorporated with Norwegian, its small wonder they are becoming more and more popular. With dining throwing a vast choice at you, from a host of different venues including casual cafe's, on-deck barbecue and grilling, 24hr in-room menu's, including of course 'breakfast-in-bed' not forgetting the signature restaurants, From Parisian style Bistro's, Italian Trattoria's to enthralling Teppanyaki, with you choosing to dress up or down, what time and where you want to eat, with no fixed dining times or pre-assigned seating, now that is what we call 'Freestyle'.

From new and unique entertainment experiences such as 'The Blue Man Group' and the 'Svedka Ice Bar', sit back with a long-drink in the ultra-mellow Fat Cats jazz lounge, turn back the years and sing along at the 'Howl at the Moon' rock n roll show, Theatrical-acrobatic imagination from the 'Cirque Dreams' and dinner show, or choose from lavish stage shows and side splitting laughter from the live comedy on board.

Activities a-plenty too. We have Sports bars, Whiskey bars, Martini and Champagne bars, or maybe some alfresco haunts to pit-stop at, on your way around the ship. From Bungee to Gyroscope, multi-use sports courts, climbing/abseiling walls, spa and fitness gymnasiums, Golf driving nets or even a Wii tournament or two if you are feeling competitive.

All this to fit-in, without giving a mention to your on-land delights. If it is history and culture that 'floats your boat' then you really have picked the right cruise. Embarking from Rome's Civitavecchia, you then have 2 days to enjoy aboard, settle in and get your bearings, before reaching the historic port of Alanya. Free time for you to enjoy the city, landing at 8am, departing at 6pm you have a full day. Because of its natural position, Alanya became strategically important and a stronghold for many Mediterranean-based empires. With this in mind, you will see evidence of the cultural mix, with wonderful sights, sounds and scents as you make your way around the historic city.

Next on the itinerary is the largest Cypriot port of Limassol. There are wide range of activities and a number of museums and archaeological sites to visit. Limassol attracts a number of tourists mainly in the summer season. Departing Limassol, it is next to Haifa, the largest city in northern Israel, and the third largest of the country. From here there are overnight trips to the holy city of Jerusalem available.

Next up is Ashdod, which is one of the oldest cities in the world. You will then head to Port Said which has been ranked first among the Egyptian cities and is an important harbour for exports of Egyptian products such as cotton and rice.

Finally, Alexandria. It is the second largest city of Egypt and lies directly on the Mediterranean coast. It was Egypt's capital city for nearly a thousand years until the Muslim conquest of Egypt in AD 641. From Alexandria, enjoy two more days relaxing aboard the ship before arriving at Civitavecchia. After so much history and culture, allow yourself some time to indulge in the Eternal City of Rome where you can visit the Vatican and the Colosseum. It is then time to go home back to the UK.

"Many thanks for your effort in arranging the Disney holiday for us. It was superb and the accommodation, restaurant recommendations, location and everything else was spot on. We had a little hiccup with rental car collection, I thought it was downtown but it was on Magic Kingdom. Nothing in the scheme of everything else though.

We found the dining plan great and fitted in well with the family and in laws. California Grill on Mother's Day was great. The free visit back to view the Magic Kingdom fireworks at 10 that night topped off the day.

Wolfgang Puck have a gem in Downtown with an excellent counter serve. Recently opened. We stumbled on Raglan Road Downtown too. A lively joint with Irish dancing. Food was one of the best and kids got invited up for a jig too!

The weather was hotter than expected but we didn't complain. A little drop of rain on one morning and night so did well avoiding the storms I remember as a kid "
