Compass Biblelands Cruise 2019

September 27- October 12, 2019

Join us for an incredible 16-day trip on the marvelous Mediterranean Sea visiting four countries and scores of Biblical sites–all from your magnificent floating hotel–Celebrity’s “Infinity!”

And along the way, Josh McDowell and Bill Perkins will be your hosts, lecturing on our days at sea and teaching on land in Israel, Athens and Rome.

Plus you can add historic Florence, the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the mind-blowing water-filled streets of Venice as a post-cruise option and/or Ancient Corinth as a pre-cruise option.



With Compass, we don’t send you to the Holy Land, we take you — every step of the way!

Our 25+ years of planning and escorting groups through the magnificent land of the Bible has given us in-depth knowledge and experience—critical in choosing the very best destinations, accommodations, schedules and guides to make your trip to the Holy Land the best it can be.

Imagine visiting all of these incredibly impacting sites on this impacting 16-day Holyland trip:
  • Athens
  • Jerusalem (2 days)
  • Galilee (1 day)
  • Rhodes
  • Cyprus
  • Crete
  • Mykonos
  • Malta
  • Rome
Plus you have the pre-cruise and post-cruise options of adding:
• Ancient Corinth
  • Florence
  • Leaning Tower of Pisa
  • Tuscany
  • Venice (two days on the island at the 500-year-old, 5 Star, Danieli Hotel.)


Oh wow—the land of the Bible!

You’ve read about it, now it’s time to see it with your own eyes! And once you do, you’ll simply never be the same. Come with us and see your Bible change from black and white to full living color!

We use our own itineraries, hotel accommodations, schedules, sites and guides to make your trip to God’s special place on earth the best it can be.

We’ve designed a fantastic itinerary on a remarkable 16-day trip that includes 12 cruise days. You’ll experience up-close the forever-impacting Mediterranean ports discussed in your Bible. When you add our stellar at-sea Bible studies there’s not a better Holyland itinerary on any ship!

But there’s more! You also have the option of arriving a day early and seeing Ancient Corinth and/or extending your trip a few extra days by adding two nights in Venice and two nights in Tuscany, visiting the Leaning Tower of Pisa and breathtaking Florence. If you’ve got the time and a few extra bucks, add one or both!

Finally, the ship is Celebrity’s stunning Infinity . . . in a class by itself. Celebrity Cruises’ ships have recently been voted “Best Premium Cruise Line” (ten years in a row) by Travel Weekly’s Readers’ Choice Awards.

So it’s 16 days, 4 countries and a lifetime of memories—pray about joining us for this incredible trip to God’s special place on earth!
