HOTEL & LAND PROGRAMS

PRE-CRUISE

PRE – BEST OF BARCELONA AND GIRONA – 2023-25

Explore landmarks in and around Barcelona, including UNESCO World Heritage sites designed by the legendary architect Antoni Gaudí, and enjoy a walking tour of medieval Girona that lends more insight into the Catalonia region.

Note: Due to the amount of walking, this program is not recommended for guests with mobility restrictions.

DAY 1

Upon arriving at the Barcelona International Airport, you will be met in the Arrivals Hall which is outside the luggage claim area. Please look for someone holding a sign with the cruise line logo.

You will then be transferred to the NH Gran Calderon Hotel Barcelona or a similar hotel, where you will spend the evening. Meals will be on your own today.

Your hotel is located in the Eixample district of Barcelona, just a 10-minute walk to Las Ramblas. Passeig de Gràcia, the city’s nicest shopping street, is easily reached on foot. Emblematic buildings and sights such as Casa Batlló, Casa Milà (La Pedrera), La Sagrada Familia and the Picasso museum are also nearby if you wish to visit them.

Note: Single guests will transfer in a sedan and couples in a van. Sedans hold 2 pieces of luggage plus 2 carry-on size bags. Vans hold 4 pieces of luggage plus 2-3 carry-on size bags. If you have more luggage than is permissible, a larger vehicle may be required for an additional cost. Please advise your booking agent at least 21 days before sailing if a larger vehicle is required.

DAY 2

After breakfast at your hotel, you will meet the guide and begin touring the city. You will pass the Columbus monument and the waterfront on the way to Sagrada Familia, the extraordinary still-unfinished church that famed architect Antoni Gaudí worked on until his death in 1926. The guide will explain the history of the church and its lengthy ongoing construction during your outside visit.

Continuing on, you will begin walking through the Gothic Quarter, passing landmarks such as the La Seu Cathedral and city hall. A more sweeping view of Barcelona awaits you upon reaching Mount Juic hill, where you may pause for photos. You will then visit Spanish Village, an open-air museum with replicas of characteristic houses from several regions of Spain. As you meander the grounds, you may observe artists such as glassblowers demonstrating their talents.

A tapas-style lunch follows, after which you will return to your hotel. The remainder of the day will be at your leisure with dinner on your own.

DAY 3

After breakfast at your hotel, you will settle in for a direct transfer to Girona, accompanied by a guide. Northern Catalonia’s largest city, Girona is full of museums, galleries and Gothic churches, strung around a tangle of cobbled lanes and medieval walls. Reflections of modernist mansions shimmer in the river that divides the historic center from the commercial center.

During a comprehensive walking tour of the city center, you will enjoy an inside visit of the 12th-century Arab baths and see the remains of Girona’s historical Jewish community. During free time that follows, you might savor lunch on your own before transferring back to Barcelona, where the remainder of the evening will be at your leisure with dinner on your own.

Day 4

Following breakfast at the hotel and check out, you will travel to Colonia Güell, another one of Gaudí’s unfinished works. Like La Sagrada Familia, this church is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Businessman Eusebio Güell commissioned Gaudí to build it for his textile factory workers in the village of Santa Coloma de Cervelló. The church is particularly noteworthy because the famed architect introduced advanced technology on it that he finetuned in later projects.

In time, you will travel to Cavas Freixenet in the heart of the Penedès region, a region well-known in Roman times for producing quality wines. There, you will tour the cellars, learn about the production of its sparkling cava wine and enjoy a lunch of local specialties.

Afterwards, you will return to Barcelona for embarkation.

OVERLAND

OVERLAND – CAIRO CLASSICS

Discover the ancient wonders in and around Cairo, including the Great Pyramid of Giza, the complete King Tut collection, the medieval Citadel fortress and a bazaar dating to the 14th century.

NOTE: This program involves extensive walking over uneven ground and is thus not suitable for guests with walking difficulties or for those who require a wheelchair.

Day 1

Disembark the ship in Alexandria, meet your guide and begin the three-hour drive to Cairo. No comfort stop is scheduled as there are restrooms on the tour coaches.

Your first visit in Cairo will be to the Grand Egyptian Museum, the world’s largest archaeological museum. Of all its priceless artifacts, the items from King Tutankhamen’s tomb is the highlight, as the full collection has never been displayed in one place before.

Following lunch at a nearby restaurant, you will then travel to the legendary Great Pyramid of Giza, the sole remaining Wonder of the Ancient World. Built as a royal tomb for Cheops, it is largest of a group of three pyramids, the other two pyramids constructed to hold the mummified remains of the pharaoh’s son and successor Chephren and Chephren’s son, Mykerinus.

Southeast of the Great Pyramid stands the Sphinx, the monument of a mythical creature with the head of a man and the body of a lion. It was carved out of solid limestone around 2650 BC and faces east, probably to greet the rising sun and the return of life each day.

Your tour of the Pyramids area also includes outside visits to the Cheops and Chephren Pyramids, and panoramic views and photo opportunities of the three Pyramids and the Sphinx.

Note: interior visits are not included however ample time is allotted for photos.

Transfer to your hotel for check-in and dinner.

Day 2

Following an early-morning breakfast at the hotel and check out, you will drive to the Step Pyramid of Sakkara, which overlooks Djoser’s mortuary complex. Dating from 2700 BC, the Step Pyramid is the oldest stone structure in the world and was designed by Imhotep for King Djoser. The complex also contains 16 other pyramids in various stages of preservation.

Because the necropolis complex was buried beneath the sands for much of the past two millennia, even the sizable mortuary surrounding Djoser’s pyramid was not unearthed until 1924. As a result, many of the mastaba tombs have been superbly preserved with both their structures and lavish interior decorations intact.

Next, visit a medieval Islamic fortress known simply as The Citadel and the adjacent Mosque of Muhammad Ali, which is often called the Alabaster Mosque due to the extensive use of that stone throughout the building. The mosque is the largest such structure built in Cairo during the first half of the 19th century and looks impressive even from a distance.

Also visit the unique Hanging Church. Known also as Al-Muallaqa Church, it is one of the oldest and most interesting Christian places of worship in Egypt. The building rises atop one of the old Roman fortress gatehouses, with its nave suspended over the passage, hence the name “Hanging Church”.

Next to it is St. Sergis Church which was built upon an ancient Roman fort. This church has acquired a special religious status among Coptic churches because it is associated with the Holy Family’s journey through Egypt.

Continue to the Ben Ezra Synagogue. Set in a shade garden, the synagogue was built on the site of a 4th-Century Christian church and is amongst Egypt’s oldest synagogues.

Note: Ben Ezra Synagogue has been closed since August 2022 for restoration, should it not be open by the time this program operates, a visit will be made instead to St George Church.

Lunch will be served in local restaurant and then later in the afternoon, you will have the opportunity to browse Khan El-Khalili, an open-air bazaar established in the 14th Century. As you meander through the market’s labyrinthine alleyways, you will find everything from handcrafted jewelry to carpets and clothing. Enjoy exploring the fascinating maze of alleyways and workshops, where you can observe artisans at work and perhaps pick up a souvenir or two.

After this enlightening experience, you will drive to Port Said to re-board the ship. The drive is approximately 3 hours. A comfort stop is not included as there are restrooms on the tour coaches.

OVERLAND – ANCIENT EGYPT REVEALED

Explore the landmarks in Cairo and the nearby wonders of the ancient world with an Egyptologist that will enhance your understanding of iconic attractions such as the Great Pyramid of Giza and the Sphinx.

Note: this program is limited to 30 guests.

DAY 1

After disembarking the ship in Alexandria, you will begin the 3-hour transfer to Cairo, accompanied by an Egyptologist well versed in the study of ancient Egypt. The Egyptologist will possess the rare ability to simply explain even the most complex concepts of the ancient world and answers any questions that you may have. Consequently, you will better understand the landmarks of Cairo and the pyramids that you will see nearby.

You will first visit the Grand Egyptian Museum, the world’s largest archaeological museum. Of all its priceless artifacts, the items from King Tutankhamen’s tomb is the highlight, as the full collection has never been displayed in one place before.

For lunch you will enjoy a culinary Egyptian food experience at a nearby restaurant. The set menu will include various Egyptian specialties in small portions so you can try them all. The Egyptologist will explain the dishes and their origins.

You will then travel to the legendary Great Pyramid of Giza, the sole remaining Wonder of the Ancient World. Built as a royal tomb for the pharaoh Khufu, who ruled in the 25th Century BCE, it is largest and oldest of a group of three pyramids. The other two pyramids were constructed to hold the mummified remains of the pharaoh’s son and successor Chephren and Chephren’s son, Mykerinus.

Southeast of the Great Pyramid stands the Sphinx, the monument of a mythical creature with the head of a man and the body of a lion. It was carved out of solid limestone around 2650 B.C .and faces east, probably to greet the rising sun and the return of life each day.

Your tour of the Pyramids area includes an optional inside visit to the Great Pyramid of Khufu (Cheops Pyramid), which is made up of approximately 2.3 million blocks of limestone. You will also have panoramic views and photo opportunities of the three Pyramids and the Sphinx.

Note: There are many uneven steps at the entrance to the pyramid. Once inside, there are pathways where you can stand as well as inclined walkways with steps where you will need to bend down while walking. It is also quite warm inside. Guests must be sure-footed, in fairly good physical shape and not prone to claustrophobia. Narrow walkways going up are shared with guests who are coming down. There are no remains inside the tomb.

Later in the afternoon, you will transfer to your hotel for check-in and dinner.

As a special treat, you will attend a private lecture with a local specialist such as the head of the High Council of Antiquities or perhaps the former Minister of Tourism and Culture. The exact details of the lecture will be provided closer to the event.

DAY 2

Following an early-morning breakfast at the hotel and check-out, you will drive to the Step Pyramid of Sakkara, which overlooks Djoser’s mortuary complex. Dating from 2700 B.C., the Step Pyramid is the oldest stone structure in the world and was designed by Imhotep for King Djoser. The complex also contains 16 other pyramids in various stages of preservation.

Because the necropolis complex was buried beneath the sands for much of the past two millennia, even the sizable mortuary surrounding Djoser’s pyramid was not unearthed until 1924. As a result, many of the mastaba tombs have been superbly preserved with both their structures and lavish interior decorations intact.

At one of the ancient sites, you will have private access to observe an excavation in progress. While there is no telling what you will see, watching the archaeologists at work will be an extraordinary experience.

Next, visit a medieval Islamic fortress in Cairo known as The Citadel and the adjacent Mosque of Muhammad Ali, which is often called the Alabaster Mosque due to the extensive use of that stone throughout the building. The mosque is the largest such structure in Cairo built during the first half of the 19th century, and it looks impressive even from a distance.

Next, you will visit the unique Al-Muallaqa, one of the oldest and most fascinating Christian places of worship in Egypt. It rises atop an old Roman fortress gatehouse with its nave suspended over the passage – the reason it is nicknamed the Hanging Church.

Then, there is St. Sergis Church, which was built upon an ancient Roman fort. This church has acquired a special religious status among Coptic churches because it is associated with the Holy Family’s journey through Egypt.

Continuing on, you will stop at the Ben Ezra Synagogue. Set in a shade garden, the synagogue was built on the site of a 4th-century Christian church and is amongst Egypt’s oldest synagogues. If the venue is closed, St. George Church will be substituted.

Following lunch, you will have the opportunity to browse Khan El-Khalili, an open-air bazaar established in the 14th century. As you meander through the market’s labyrinthine alleyways, you will find everything from handcrafted jewelry to carpets and clothing. You can likely observe artisans at work and perhaps purchase one of their works.

After this truly enlightening experience, you will drive to Port Said to re-board the ship. The drive is approximately 3 hours. A comfort stop is not included as there are restrooms on the tour coaches.
