The Luxury After embarking from Athens on November 9, this 10-day Silversea cruise visits 10 ports in Asia, Europe, and Africa. The itinerary includes some off-the-path destinations such as Haifa (pictured) and Ashdod in Israel; Limassol, Cyprus; and Tartous, Syria, an island port receiving only a handful of luxury cruise ships each year. The 298-passenger Silver Wind will also anchor in popular eastern Mediterranean ports such as Santorini, Greece, and Alexandria, Egypt. Guests can experience musical entertainment in the Show Lounge or moonlight movies under the stars.
The Value The berths are now reduced 45% from published rates, which start at $4,562. Each reservation includes a spending credit of $1,000 that can be applied to shore excursions, spa treatments, or other amenities.
The Catch The $1,000 credit is offered only for bookings made by September 30.
