  1. Here are all the Viking Dailies and the pre trip to Jerusalem and post trip to Jordan. I have included the pages that included flight times and marked the one to Jordan. We got a breakfast box from the hotel to take with us. My scanner wasn't cooperating this morning--so it have it in two PDF files. Last Day Egypt to Jordan.PDF Jerusalem until Next to Last Day Egyp.PDF
  2. Have a wonderful trip. Our guide Amal, prefers the Antares to the Ra. The staterooms are bigger, the public areas are bigger, and the crew is happier.
  3. We did the market and dinner tour..it was okay..but we were adjusted to the time as we had been in Jerusalem before arriving in Egypt. Light show we didn’t do..most of the ship did go. Good reviews by the people we talked to that went. We do the Coptic tour tomorrow. The only chance to add was before the dinner on the second night..everything paid for but the balloon that night. Paid aboard ship for the balloon. We didn’t leave for the airport until 730 am for Abu Simbel..butconcerned about the long day and the mixed reviews too.

  7. Now in Luxor on the Antares Beautiful, clean, ship. While I do prefer the Scandinavian look, this ship is beautiful. Our guide was do excited that that her favorite head chef was back on board.

Through security, luggage drop, immigration and at the shopping area by 920. Boarding at 1040, late take off. But through airport and in our room by 230. Below are pictures of our view, the room, and the Viking Daily for today and tomorrow.
  12. joined our VIKING group on Thursday. Attached is the itinerary. There are two long busy days with a half day free on the last full day. Note on the second day, the Viking material says two to 3 miles of walking. People in our group that had step trackers measured closer to 5 miles, lots of steps, and irregular surfaces. Be prepared. Our guide was excellent very knowledgeable and passionate about Israel and its history.
  13. On Thanksgiving we went to Masada. Ein Gedi, and a quick stop at a beach at the Dead Sea. Masada is amazing. The rest was okay. While the high in Jerusalem was 66, it was 85 in the Dead sea area.
