This short video walks you through the entire trip using video taken on past cruises. Great trip overview of where you'll go and what you'll see!

Trip Details

Join us for an incredible 16-day Biblelands Cruise, an incredible trip on the beautiful Mediterranean Sea visiting five countries and scores of Biblical sites – all from your magnificent floating hotel–Celebrity’s new ship, “Apex”! [PLEASE NOTE: In the video above, it shows the ship "Reflection," which is incorrect–we will be sailing on THE APEX!]

We have a window of opportunity as there is no vax needed to fly or to enter Italy, Greece, Israel or Ephesus. Other countries are dropping mandates.
We expect the entire trip to be vax-mandate-free. When the last of the mandates are dropped (Celebrity Cruises), the cabins will go fast. So make plans now to go when the last cruise mandate is removed! CLICK HERE for details!
We're taking deposits without putting down money—when they drop the last mandate, you'll be first in line! Call for details!

HOSTS: Andy Woods and Bill Perkins

And along the way, Andy Woods and Bill Perkins will be your hosts, lecturing on our days-at-sea and teaching on land in Israel, Athens, Ephesus, Corinth, and Rome, making your Bible come alive like never before!

Plus, you can add historic Florence, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and the mind-blowing water-filled streets of Venice as an incredible post-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.
