Just back from a business trip that based me in Cyprus (Larnaca), and found time to take a 3 day cruise to Egypt and Israel on Louis Cruise Lines. It was great for what I wanted--a quick, efficient way to see the major sites in Jerusalem, Bethleham and Cairo. For around $300 for an average room on board for three nights, plus meals and site tickets. The cruise leaves Limassol, Cyprus on Sun (and Wed) night, cruises to Haifa overnight and then a 3 hour coach ride to Jerusalem and Bethleham for the day. Overnight to Port Said, Egypt, and then the same routine to the Pyramids, Sphinx and the Cairo Museum. Not too many Americans on board (mostly British and eastern European), but the tour is planned very efficient, and the accomodations and meals were fine. Louis has a web site www.louiscruises.com
