Itinerary for Athens to Dubai

Day 1 - Fly UK to Athens / Enjoy Athens

Day 2 - Enjoy Athens

Day 3 - Embark Azamara Quest in Athens

Athens has quite a reputation to live up to. Named for Athena, Goddess of Wisdom, the city is credited with being the cradle of European civilization and birthplace of democracy. Ruins and relics of its glory days are scattered throughout the modern city, popping up where you least expect them. Its crowning glory is the Acropolis, perched atop a hillside, and covered in carved and columned temples of varying degrees of antiquity. Not quite so old is the Plaka, an appealing neighborhood for a stroll down cobblestone streets, past old mansions and a plethora of outdoor tavernas ideal for watching the world go by, while munching tasty Greek snacks.

Day 4 - At Sea

Day 5 - Alexandria, Egypt

Alexandria is Egypt's second-largest city and its largest seaport. Known as "The Pearl of the Mediterranean," it's found by many to have an atmosphere and culture that is more Mediterranean than Middle Eastern. In ancient times, Alexandria was the capital of Greco-Roman Egypt; today, its a city synonymous with commerce and sophistication.

Day 6 - Port Said

On the northern end of the Suez Canal, this vital port city of aged houses and grand balconies is a gateway to Cairo, Giza plateau and the unparalleled wonders of ancient civilization: the Pyramids of Giza, the Sphinx, the Egyptian Museum, the Nile River, the "Hanging Church," Al-Azhar Mosque and the Citadel.

Day 7 - Sokhna / Suez Canal (Passage)

Experience the breathtaking illusion of sailing through miles of desert sand as you cruise the 100-mile Suez Canal, the engineering marvel that connects the Mediterranean and Red Seas.

Day 18 - Muscat

An important trading port between East and West since the first century, Muscat's influence once extended as far as East Africa and Zanzibar. While much of the city’s construction is new, it all displays traditional Arabic stylistic elements, creating a handsome and cohesive whole that incorporates a rich history. Two seemingly invincible mountainside forts from the 1500s flank the palace of the sultan, though today they are both museums. A major highlight is the Muttrah Souq, Muscat's oldest market. Colorful and bustling, it is a fascinating place to browse, as well as to bargain for exotic spices, traditional handicrafts, or gold and frankincense.

Day 19 - Dubai, disembark & transfer to airport / Fly Dubai to UK

Dubai can already be mistaken for a movie set featuring a futuristic metropolis, and there are big plans still in the works. In the middle of the desert where almost nothing existed 20 years ago, there are so many building projects that foreign construction crews vastly outnumber citizens. Everything is the biggest, tallest, and the first of its kind, including manmade islands shaped like palm trees and the world’s first underwater hotel. It’s a striking collection of styles, including modern interpretations of Islamic architecture. If the planet’s largest shopping mall doesn’t appeal, traditional souks do still exist, including a gold souk housing over 200 retail shops.
