A land of such deep cultural and historical significance, Israel represents a journey back in time while also offering a sample of cosmopolitan living by means of its relaxed local cuisine and cafe culture. Through Regent Seven Seas Cruises, you have more options than ever for a luxury cruise in the promised land.

At Accent on Travel, we design captivating voyages to Israel, Africa, and Arabia in partnership with Regent Seven Seas Cruises. Whether you’ve longed to meander through Israel’s stone streets, experience the Middle Eastern flair of its cities, or indulge in authentic street food cuisine such as shawarma and shakshuka, let our team of expert travel advisors take care of all the details so that you can sail in style.


Explore more ports than ever before

Israel has reopened many of its ports for you to explore, saving time over other modes of transport and making it simple for you to step ashore from your luxury ship and head directly into the sights and sounds of its cities. From Ashdod, the largest port in Israel and the center of the country’s importing and exporting trades, to Haifa, where you’ll disembark at the foot of Mount Carmel among the terraces and the golden dome of the Báb shrine, the ports of Israel beckon and make enriching experiences easier than ever to reach.


Join prayer at the Basilica of the Annunciation in Nazareth

After a relaxing drive to Nazareth, just one of many historic locations close to the port of Haifa, visit the Basilica of the Annunciation, where it’s believed that the Archangel Gabriel spoke to Mary and revealed she would be mother to the son of God. Revel in the beauty and the detail of this structure, including its inverted lilly dome and bold concrete base, the artwork set at the altar, and even the Grotto of the Annunciation. 

Travel onwards from Nazareth to visit other significant locations such as the Mount of Beatitudes and the Sea of Galilee, where the sunlight shimmers on this Israeli freshwater jewel. 


Retrace biblical steps in Bethlehem

Crucial in so many stories from the bible, tour Bethlehem’s streets on foot to feel the grandeur of the location. From the Church of the Nativity, the birthplace of Jesus, where you can examine the repairs and additions from across the centuries, to the scenic Judean Hills and Valley of Elah, where David took on the giant Goliath, it’s easy to lose yourself in the history and culture. Browse the shops of Bethlehem where artful, handmade items only serve to add to the authenticity through real craftsmanship. 


Wind your way through Tel Aviv’s markets

Though you’ll see more skyscrapers in Tel Aviv than in any other part of Israel, don’t be fooled, there is an astonishing array of lively markets to explore as you travel through the narrow streets below. Step into any of the galleries, museums, or popular bistros to experience the mixture of the old and new. Experience this blend, too, in the unique wall art you pass and the aroma of foods and spices drifting down the streets. Meander through the historic Jaffa district and run your fingertips over the ancient archways and stone walls, some of which have been around for thousands of years, and feel the grandeur of this distinctive part of the world.


Cruises to Israel are now one of the best ways to immerse yourself in the history of Israel, Jerusalem, and the many significant religious sites just a stone’s throw away. Travel in style with the spacious suites and high levels of attentive service aboard Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ ships, making the most of numerous port choices in Israel on their 15-24 night Africa and Arabia cruises. Allow our team at Accent on Travel to arrange your uniquely customized itinerary for an enriching experience you won’t forget. Call our expert advisors at 888-806-2337 and reserve your place on an epic voyage to the Holy City and beyond.
