Red Sea Cruises

The Red Sea is a narrow strip of water that extends in a southeast direction from Suez in Egypt to the Bab el-Mandeb Strait and the Gulf of Aden. The seawater inlet of the Indian Ocean covers an area of approximately 174,000 square miles (450,000 square km). The remarkable historical treasures of this region can mostly be found in Egypt and neighbouring Jordan.

On a luxury Red Sea cruise adventure to Egypt and Jordan you can discover many of the wonders of the ancient world. The Nile River Valley boasts dramatic iconic monuments that are famous all over the world. Visit the colossal Pyramids, the Great Sphinx, the Karnak Temple and the Valley of the Kings. The Arab nation of Jordan has impressive archaeological sites, beautiful nature reserves and stunning beaches with colourful coral reefs. Both countries have a rich history and unique culture, and also magnificent landscapes.

The climate of the Red Sea is influenced by two distinct monsoon seasons. Monsoon winds occur when the heat between the land surface and sea dramatically alters. Very high surface temperatures make the Red Sea one of the hottest bodies of seawater in the world. During the summer, average surface water temperatures are around 26°C-30°C.
