Ancient Athens to Modern Dubai

15 Day | Virgin Voyages Cruise

Piraeus (Athens) • Santorini • Rhodes • Port Said (Cairo) • Suez Canal Passage • Safaga • Dubai

Ancient Athens to Modern Dubai, a 15 day 14 night Virgin Voyages cruise. Embark on a one-way voyage from Piraeus (Athens) to Dubai with a late-night stay in Safaga and an overnight in Cairo. Exploring sites along the Med and through the Red, you’ll get your Greek glow going, and cross the famous Suez Canal before discovering the unique Arabian Gulf.


Famous for its iconic towers, palm-shaped islands, and palatial resorts, Dubai embraces sunshine and novelty just as much as its cultural diversity. From eating like a Bedouin to skiing on a massive indoor slope, there’s no shortage of entertainment in this shopping haven with a vibrant nightlife.
