Suez Canal Cruise: 15-nights in December 2012.

Relax on the Suez Canal aboard the majestic Serenade of the Seas. Depart Malaga for Alexandria, Egypt. The charming seaside promenade, colonial buildings and wide avenues make it an exotic, romantic destination. At it's opening in 1869, the Suez Canal was the first salt-water passage between the Mediterranean and Red Seas. Without it, a cargo ship sailing from Italy to Singapore would have to go around the southern tip of Africa, doubling the travel time and distance. The canal is 103 miles long and about 8% of the world's sea trade goes through it. Bordered by long lines of golden sand, the voyage down is both majestic and peaceful.

Often called "The City of Peace," Sharm El Sheikh is a splendid beach community that gets right down to the basics-sun, sea and sand. The town's cluster of beachfront hotels are surrounded by colorful Bedouin tents, mountains, and sea. Temperatures are typically hot in the summer but it is quite warm and pleasant in winter, and year-round Sharm El Sheikh offers enough activities, sports, shopping and entertainment to guarantee no visitor will ever find himself bored. Once a tidy merchant port on the coast of the Red Sea, in recent years Safaga has developed into an attractive and popular resort town known for water sports, relaxation and rejuvenation. Sun lovers and sportsmen are attracted to its magnificent bay, islands and beautiful beaches. Believe everything you've heard about Dubai - it truly is that incredible. End the cruise here and explore for days!

Its arid interior is dotted with cactus and windswept divi-divi trees while secluded coves and sandy beaches form its coast.
