VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 1: Athens, Greece
With 3,000 years of history, you can’t turn around in Athens without encountering the past. The Acropolis, a UNESCO site, the Plaka, and the Acropolis Museum are must-sees. But leave time if you can to climb Pnyx Hill for photos of the Parthenon at sunset, to buy your own set of Greek komboloi (worry beads), and to explore the metro stations that serve as mini-museums for the relics that are constantly being unearthed.

Day 3: Transit Suez Canal, Egypt
The Suez Canal is a bit like Moses’ parting of the Red Sea in reverse, as your yacht passes between Asia and Africa along a thin ribbon of blue. The Egypt side is green, nourished by the Nile River more than 100 miles away. The Sinai side is mostly desert bursting with history. This historic crossing is too expensive to lure many cruise ships. Star Legend gives you a rare and intimate opportunity to experience what few are able to do.

This historic crossing is too expensive to lure many cruise ships. Star Legend gives you a rare and intimate opportunity to experience what few are able to do.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 5: Hurghada, Egypt
Your choices here are a symphony of contrasts. Take a thrilling 4x4 ride across undulating desert dunes. Go snorkeling or diving in some of the finest underwater gardens in the world. Or . . . how about a submarine adventure under the Red Sea. This beautiful oasis by the sea has it all.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 6: Aqaba, (Petra) Jordan
Petra, that legendary UNESCO city carved into the cliffs of the desert. Petra whispers of legend. Carved from the canyon walls themselves, ornate buildings form a city which once was a trading center of the world. There is nothing like emerging from a narrow gorge to see the towering pink façade of the famous Treasury.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 7: Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt
This classic Red Sea resort glitters like you would expect a “sheik’s peninsula” to glitter, from the shiny brass lamps in the Old Town souk to the sleek private yachts that try (but fail) to eclipse our all-suite Star Plus yacht. Watersports are big here and the snorkeling is outstanding. For many, though, the main attraction is a humble bush at St. Catherine Monastery, located on the spot where Moses was said to have received the Ten Commandments.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 8: Safaga (Luxor) Egypt
Located on the Egyptian side of the Red Sea, the city of Safaga is a charming beach resort and gateway to Luxor – known as the “world’s greatest open air museum”. Luxor is home to the Valley of the Kings, and features one of the most impressive collections of temples and tombs in the world. Windstar offers a two-day excursion to the land of the pharaohs.

Day 15: Salalah
Enjoy your time in “The Garden City,” the traditional home of sultans. This lush oasis is beautiful, fragrant, and enticing. Climb the hairpin bends of the Frankincense Trail and learn about the rare resin once considered more precious than gold. Explore colorful souks, traditional handcrafts, the site of the Palace of the Queen of Sheba. Discover the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Al Balid (Zafar), the ancient trading center of frankincense and Arabian horses.

Day 18: Khasab
Known as the Norway of Arabia with its spectacular fjords, Khasab sits isolated on Oman’s northern coast. Exploring the impressive coast by boat may result in encounters with friendly bottlenose and humpback dolphins. Check out Khasab Castle, built in the 17th century with its museum of local life back through the ages. Not far away are Bedouin villages and the Khawr Najd viewpoint with sweeping views of the impressive fjords.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 19: Dubai, UAE
In Dubai, sports run the gamut from camel races in the desert to an indoor ski mountain. Architecture spans Bedouin tents and Arabian wind towers to the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. Archipelagos miraculously appear in the image of palm trees and planets. It’s a lot to take in. By all means, add some extra days here to get your head around this amazing city that seems to be all things to all people.
