Destinations / Middle East

Explore the history and culture of the Middle East on a cruise. Scenic Luxury Cruises and Tours expanded its Middle Eastern offerings, with cruise and land-based experiences in Egypt, Jordan, Israel and Oman.


Wonders of the Nile

The new Wonders of the Nile itinerary takes travelers, over 12 days, on the Sanctuary Sun Boat III through the cradle of civilization, exploring 4,500-year-old pyramids, translating hieroglyphics and visiting multiple major Egyptian cities along the way. The itinerary includes stops in Cairo, Giza, Abu Simbel and Aswan, with special experiences including World Heritage Site stops, hot air balloon flights and curated entertainment.


Egypt and Jordan

To see both Egypt and Jordan in one trip, travelers can book the 19-day Egypt and Jordan Experience itinerary, where the Egyptian experiences are paired with select activities in Jordan. See a Roman chariot race, visit the Royal Automobile Museum and float in the Dead Sea.


When travelers sail on the brand’s Sanctuary Sun Boat III, they enjoy a small ship outfitted for just 34 passengers, surrounded by opulence themed after the 1920s era of luxury travel. When not on the small ship, travelers stay at luxury hotels. The ship features its own restaurant, a sun deck and pool and spacious cabins with huge windows.


Jordan and Oman

For an Omani experience, two itineraries are available to travelers headed out in 2020 and 2021: Oman Impressions and Kingdoms of Jordan and Oman. Both itineraries offer the chance to explore Oman’s culture, landscape and impressive sand dunes over the course of eight or 15 days.

Today, all 116 rooms at the hotel have been painted with street murals, becoming some of the most distinctive lodging spaces in the city.
