This was our second foray into cruising and, much to our surprise, we enjoyed it. We got to places that we had wanted to visit, but only briefly rather than make a full holiday out of it.

Israel was interesting, particularly the bomb scare at the Western (Wailing) Wall and Masada. Egypt was incredibly hot and the timing was such that we only got glimpses of the places: fortunately we had already seen the pyramids.
