Suez Canal Passage Cruises

The Suez Canal does not just connect the Mediterranean Sea to the Red Sea and define the border between Asia and Africa, it marks a glorious engineering victory over nature. This 193km-long sea-level canal was made by man in the 1850s and 1860s, marking an era of Egyptian glory and engineering genius.

Cruising the Suez Canal will let you experience the slower pace of life that is present here, especially in the most notable cities along the canal that were built as a result of its construction.

  • Port Said
  • Ismailia
  • Port Fuad

Cruise Lines

There is a great number of fantastic cruise lines that offer itineraries that pass by the Suez Canal.

  • P&O Cruises
  • Princess Cruises
  • Cunard
  • Norwegian Cruise Line
  • Seabourn
  • Holland America Line

Cruising the Suez Canal from an Australian home port is the most popular option for obvious reasons. These would be your options for departure:

The itineraries sailed out of Australia are absolutely spectacular, all of them are over 40 nights in duration and cruise halfway around the world, giving you the perfect opportunity to discover the diversity of other cultures, landscapes and people.

Your world adventure of a lifetime will be amazing on board one of these ships:

  • Coral Princess – the recently refurbished Princess Cruises vessel specializes on discovery voyages. You will not be short of things to do on board while sailing at sea, plus the dining experience is out of this world.
  • Queen Mary 2 – the legendary Cunard ship, famous for its extraordinary style and elegance. The service on board the ship is superior, so relax, unwind and enjoy the world passing by.

The Best Time to Visit

The European summer is the most popular time to visit the Suez Canal. July and August are the hottest of them, so we would recommend sailing in the month of June – it is comfortably warm and dry.
