This was the star of the cruise but we were very disappointed because the people are very rude. We took the cruise for the reason to visit the holy land but the impoliteness of the Israelis soldiers and the long wait at the check points spoiled it. Our visit to Old Jerusalem and Natherth were very good and the people there were very nice

We went to Bethlehem which was amazing. A bit too touristy for our liking but still good to see. Saw lots of churches etc. Beware taken to a souvenir shop and kept there for 45 minutes. Mostly a lot of expensive rubbish

The port of Haifa reeks of petrol and exhaust which makes it difficult to spend anytime outside onboard while in port. Including verandas. The people of Haifa, imo, are not friendly. Service help can be dismissive and rude. The city of Haifa is very dirty. Garbage everywhere. Especially the German Colony. Went to Akko and did the Crusader tour. That was an informative excursion. A lot of fun. Be careful about being overcharged at the shops. The shop keepers can rush you which makes it difficult to do dollar/shekel conversions in your head. Take your time if you have a shekel comprehension issue as i did. The Bahai Gardens were beautiful. Especially at night while the ship is leaving port. This was my least favorite stop on the entire cruise. I’ll be back to Israel to visit Jerusalem and Tel Aviv but will avoid Haifa.
