13 Night Holy Land cruise departing roundtrip from Rome onboard Celebrity Silhouette.

High design. To the power of four. Celebrity Silhouette joins our award-winning Solstice Class, delivering the same cosmopolitan style that has made her sister ships famous, from stunning interior spaces to sweeping veranda views in 85% of staterooms. With specialty dining venues that rival the best five-star spots on land and a host of enriching onboard programs, we’ve created an unprecedented ship experience.

Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy
Once the center of the ancient world from which emperors ruled over nearly all of western civilization for hundreds of years, Rome is still considered by many to reign over all other European destinations. Here you can breathe the air once breathed by great Roman gladiators in the ancient halls of the Colosseum. Gaze upon the very ceilings Michelangelo painted at the Sistine Chapel. Or visit a monument to both size and faith, St. Peter’s Basilica, the largest church ever built.

Mykonos, Greece
Few places in the world compare with Mykonos. Here you’ll find whitewashed houses clinging to cliffs against a backdrop of indescribably blue sea. Follow a maze of tiny streets, visit one of the world’s most superb beaches, or see the mythical birthplace of Apollo, the island of Mykonos.

Athens (Piraeus), Greece
Your adventure in Athens begins five miles southwest in Greece’s largest seaport, known as Piraeus. While here, be sure to take notice of what is considered to be one of the greatest contributions from the ancient Age of Pericles, the city’s infrastructure, which today we know as a city block.

Ephesus (Kusadasi), Turkey
Nestled along the craggy shores of the Aegean Sea is the Turkish port of Kusadasi. Renowned as one of the most beautiful cities along the Aegean, Kusadasi is blessed with sunshine an average of 300 days a year. This beautiful city is the perfect setting to begin your journey to Ephesus.

Jerusalem (Ashdod), Israel
A young, vibrant port city, Ashdod is nevertheless rich in history. From Biblical sites to Yam Fort, a tenth century fortress, you?ll find historic relics from all eras. However, recent growth has given this city a much more cosmopolitan feel. Visit the brand new Ashdod Cultural Center, Yad LaBanim Concert Hall, and MonArt Performing Arts Center for an impressive display of modern culture in this ancient land.

Naples/Capri, Italy
Located on the southern coast of Italy, Naples has spectacular scenery that attracts artists from around the world. From this key spot, you can embark on a trip to the ruins of Pompeii or shop the many boutiques of Sorrento. You may work up an appetite for one of Naples’ greatest inventions – pizza – invented to honor the Queen of Italy in 1889.
