I looked at the itonerary for this tour/cruise, and, twenty years ago, I would have jumped at the chance. For a number of reasons, not the least being age and illness, I am not now interested. I have been almost everywhere the trip goes, and all of the sights would be worthy of a second visit. I expect that some sites will require some lengthy, if not strenuous, walking, But I'm sure there will be sufficient time for some rest periods. Many of the places you go will be of interest, more because of what you know or are told of the history, than of what you see today.,and the Suez Canal is one of them. For most of the five or six hours you are transiting the Canal, you can see sand and rocks, water, and, maybe, another ship in fromt of or behind yours. But, knowing the history of the Canal makes the transit rather spectacular. But Jerusalem. Masada, Petra, Luxor -- there is nothing else like them anywhere in the world.
