You’ll spend 7 nights aboard the Emperor Superior diving the Northern Red Sea, roundtrip Hurghada. Sheer colorful walls carpeted in a rich growth of hard, soft and gorgonian corals and large pelagics such as tuna, manta rays, barracudas as well as grey reef, silky and white tip reef sharks are the norm here. Plus enjoy the Red Sea’s first marine park Ras Mohamed, as well as several WWII wrecks – including the stunning Thistlegorm wreck (no wreck diving certification required).
The trip starts out exploring the topside highlights of Egypt: first the Pyramids & Sphinx in Cairo, as well as the world-renowned Egyptian Museum of Antiquities, followed by a Nile Cruise. Let history pass by as you sit on the top deck enjoying a cup of tea. Finish up with the Valley of the Kings in Luxor and Karnak Temple.
To round out this trip and make it a truly epic experience, add a 4 night package in Jordan. This includes a Dead Sea experience as well as plenty of time in the “rose-red” ancient city of Petra.
