Thu Oct 30
Athens, Greece
Arrive:
Depart:7:00 PM
Watersports Platform: 
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.

Transit Suez Canal, Egypt
Arrive:10:00 PM
Depart:
Watersports Platform: 
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.

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.
Wed Nov 5
Aqaba, (Petra) Jordan
Arrive:6:00 AM
Depart:7:00 PM
Watersports Platform: 
Jordan’s only port and considered the playground for the rich and famous of the Middle East with its vast beautiful beaches, opulent resorts, and lively nightlife. Aqaba is also the gateway to Petra, that legendary UNESCO city carved into the cliffs of the desert where 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.
Thu Nov 6
Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt
Arrive:6:00 AM
Depart:10:00 PM
Watersports Platform: 
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.
