This fall, Crystal Cruises will add an overnight visit to Ashdod, Israel to its aptly named Ruins & Relics Mediterranean itinerary.

 The expanded call in Israel, along with an overnight stay in Egypt, gives travelers the opportunity to more fully immerse themselves in the ancient cultures, including such archaeological wonders as the Great Pyramid, King Herods tomb and Pompeii and Herculaneum. The 12-day cruise aboard Crystal Serenity departs Athens for Rome on 19 October 2010, also visiting Naples and Sicily, Italy and Valetta, Malta.

The destinations featured on this voyage offer more than five millennia of history and culture to explore, said Bill Smith, Crystals senior vice president of sales and marketing. Given our guests penchant for enriching exclusive and unforgettable travel experiences, the additional time to enjoy the rich heritage of the destination is significant.

On board, experts in world affairs, including former White House Press Secretary Marlin Fitzwater, will host enriching presentations and workshops.

Per person, promotional Two-for-One cruise fares start at US$5,940, double occupancy, and include free air transportation from more than 20 North American gateways free Business Class Air for penthouse guests, and US$1,000 per person All Inclusive As You Wish shipboard credits.
