Sandy terrain flanks the Suez Canal, a port visited on an all-inclusive, luxury Seabourn cruise.

Exit Suez Canal at Suez

Following a long full-day transit of the 120-mile, sea-level canal linking the Mediterranean with the Red Sea, your ship passes Suez and enters the Middle Eastern realm. Water flow at this end of the canal from the Great Bitter Lake is affected by the Red Sea tides. As your ship leaves the canal, you begin to detect the barely perceptible motion of the great sea beneath the hull, and the engine sound may accelerate slightly, heightening your anticipation. Raise your glass to another milestone passed, and to the exciting adventures that lie ahead.
