Not a fan of MSC
MSC  / MSC Preziosa /
MEDITERRANEAN

By garland, swansea on 19th Apr 2014
We have sailed with many of the cruise lines but thought we would try MSC Prezioza which was sailing from Venice. The embarkation procedure is organised chaos, it took hours to board. The drinks package is worth it, try the Allegresimo, 23 euros+15%, per...  Read More >>

Easiest and best way to see Israel is by www.guidedtoursisrael.com, run by Alon Schneider. Small groups, full days, including Jerusalem and Bethlehem, and knowledgeable guides. Enjoy the experience.

Cairo from any port is best done on ship's tour, especially at the moment. ............... Haifa you can negotiate a taxi or minibus outside the terminal for Nazareth, Gallillee etc. ........ Or take the train a short distance to the town & crusader fort of Acra (various spellings). ............ Ashdod a little more difficult because the taxis at the port seem to have a monopoly so negotiations are a little more one-sided. Jerusalem is about 90 mins away. In the (pedestrians-only) walled city you need a guide cos its a rabbit warren. Free tour (guide expects a tip) at http://www.newjerusalemtours.com/daily-tours/new-jerusalem-free-tour.html ..........Bethlehem is complicated since it's Palestinian-controlled, only tour buses can cross, so you'd need a ship's tour. ..............
