Detailed Itinerary

All days not listed are spent at sea enjoying the excellent facilities aboard Columbus. Ports of call may be subject to change.

Day One

Board Columbus in Dubai, then watch from her deck as the skyline of this extraordinary city - which boasts the world's tallest structure and only seven-star hotel - spreads out and then disappears in your wake, and your cruise begins.

Day Two

Today Columbus calls in the capital of the Sultanate of Oman. One of the world's most fascinating cities, spotless, laid-back Muscat is a low-rise, low-key port that offers easy access into a landscape of frankincense trees and coconut palms.

Day Nine

From the Red Sea port of Safaga, an optional full-day excursion will take you to Luxor, once the ancient Egyptian capital Thebes. Discover temples at Luxor and Karnak, the vast columns of the Hypostyle Hall, and the awe-inspiring Valley of the Kings - where Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon discovered Tutankhamun's tomb.

Day 10

Today brings another unforgettable optional excursion - from the luxurious Jordanian port of Aqaba to the extraordinary 'Rose Red' City of Petra. Etched into the sandstone cliffs and hillsides the lost city's extraordinary buildings are among the most unforgettable sights on Earth.

Day 12

Passage through the world's most famous - and busiest - waterway, the Suez Canal, brings Columbus into the Mediterranean, where a trio of calls brings the opportunity to discover yet more wonders a little closer to home.

Day 14

Today Columbus docks in Piraeus for a visit to beguiling, bustling Athens. Don't miss the chance to climb the Acropolis to the ruins of the Parthenon, one of the world's most enduring monuments, and an awe-inspiring window onto the city's rich Classical past.

Day 16

Columbus's final Mediterranean island call is Malta, with its stunning natural Grand Harbour at Valletta. Explore the surrounding streets, or head into the rugged interior - perhaps to the haunting 'silent city' of Mdina.

Day 19

A morning call in Gibraltar brings a first real taste of home. Wander past familiar British shops on Main Street, or perhaps to take the cable-car to the top of the Rock for views across the Straits to Africa.

Day 23

Columbus arrives back in Tilbury, at the end of her amazing cruise adventure.
