Board the stunning, square-rigged Golden Horizon and travel from Croatia, around the Greek islands of Kefalonia and Crete, to Egypt, along the man-made Suez Canal
The Suez Canal is one of the most important waterways in the
World. Linking East with West, it connects the Mediterranean Sea
with the Indian Ocean via the Red Sea and on this unique voyage
you'll travel it's 120-mile length on a traditional tall ship.
Tradewind's luxurious Golden Horizon is the World's largest
square-rigged sailing ship and allows its 272 guests to explore the
world in a more sustainable way. Powered by the wind and currents
for around 70 per cent of each season, it's billowing sails will be
a sight to behold.
Despite it's classical looks it still boasts the luxuries you'd
expect from a five-star cruise including excellent food and service
and a relaxed atmosphere on board.
On this 11-day voyage you'll set sail from the Croatian city of
Split, on the Dalmatian coast, and can choose to enjoy a few days
pre-cruise exploring the UNESCO-listed walled city of Dubrovnik on
an optional extension. You'll then sail the magical Mediterranean
to the Peloponnese in Greece, the islands where the original
Olympic Games were held. Stop in Kefalonia, the beautiful setting
of Captain Corelli's Mandolin and enjoy swimming in the crystal
clear waters. As you make your way between the Greek Islands there
will be plenty of opportunities to take advantage of complementary
water sports enjoying kayaking, paddle boarding and other
waterspouts directly from the marina at the aft of the ship.
You'll also stop at Kalamata, on the Peloponnese peninsula,
famous for its olives, and Chania, in Western Crete. Another
highlight of this unique voyage will be your passage through the
famous Suez Canal with stops in Alexandria, where you can choose to
add on a Cairo experience to see the colossal Pyramids of Giza.
Your penultimate stop is coastal Safaga, gateway to the Valley of
the Kings and a destination for bathing in sun and sea, before you
arrive in Sharm el Sheikh, known for its incredible diving and
beaches and where you can also choose to extend your holiday with a
relaxing beach resort stay.
