Athens, Greece

Welcome to the beautiful Capital city of Greece; the birthplace of philosophy and democracy. Explore the ancient monuments, world class museums, chic cafés, unique shops and charming taverns of the city center. Admire the 5th century BC landmarks, including the Acropolis, and take in the stunning, panoramic views from Acropolis Hill. Discover the Parthenon Temple, just another one of the many ancient buildings we will find here. Observe the sculptures, jewelry and vases, preserved from Ancient Greece, at the Acropolis Museum or the National Archaeological Museum. One day in this city is not enough to see all it has to offer!

Port Said (Cairo), Egypt ~ Classic Cairo

From Port Said, we travel to Cairo, the largest city in Africa, and explore the top sights from a luxury, air-conditioned coach. We will journey towards the last remaining Wonder of the Ancient World, the mighty Pyramid of Giza. We will have plenty of free time, from the base of Chephren’s pyramid, to wander around the ancient marvels by foot or by camel, if we are feeling a bit more adventurous. As we continue through the valley, we come across the supreme Sphinx, guarding the land. After a luxurious buffet lunch, at a 5-star hotel, we will continue our adventure through the heart of Cairo. Stroll through bustling Tahrir (Liberty) Square before we head to the National Archaeological Museum to become better acquainted with the ancient history of Egypt. From the collection of King Tutankhamen, and other intriguing antiquities, we will discover inspiring history spanning over 50 centuries! Admire a Papyrus Institute, and take some time for souvenir hunting, before venturing back to the ship.

Check out the 1869 octagonal lighthouse, the most iconic landmark of the city of Port Said. Walk along the Corniche, which will reveal the city’s maritime prowess and power. The charming faded 19th century colonial consulates and mansion homes that line the entry in to the Suez Canal are sure to capture our attention. Learn about the history of the canal at the National Military Museum, or wander into town. The historic center is full of locals shopping the bustling bazaar, while the sandy beach beckons with deckchairs and umbrellas.

Ashdod, Israel – Jerusalem & Bethlehem Full Day 

The gateway to Jaffa, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Bethlehem is located along the sun-soaked coastline of the Mediterranean. Here, we will find quite the melting pot of cultural offerings and religious pilgrimage all found within a short trip. Head North, to Tel Aviv, to enjoy a blossoming culinary scene and buzzing nightlife in the city that never sleeps or, try the more relaxing, ancient port city of Jaffa, charming with its old world atmosphere, courtyards, narrow passageways and ancient buildings. For a more religious experience travel back in time to the walled city of Jerusalem, one of the oldest cities in the world, and discover churches, mosques and synagogues. Admire landmarks such as the Mount of Olives, Wailing Wall, Temple Mount and the Church of the Holy Sepelchre, a true testament to Jerusalem’s diversity. Visit the birthplace of Jesus, just across the border, in Bethlehem, and seek out the Church of Nativity, the famed street art or explore the fascinating Old City.

Limassol, Cyprus

Limassol is a modern marina filled with rows of fishing boats and yachts. The never-ending seafront promenade boasts busy bars, restaurants and an optimum setting for watching the sunset. Old Town Limassol offers the jewel of the city; the medieval castle from where everything begins and ends. Legend has it that this was the site of the royal wedding between Richard the Lionheart and Berengaria of Navarre. Admire the medieval architecture and visit the Medieval Museum before following the cobbled streets that lead to the old fishing harbor and the market, where locals gather. Just outside of the city, find the forested Troodos Mountains or the Chantara Waterfalls. Visit Polemidia National Park and stroll the nature trails or just relax and enjoy the scenery at one of the picturesque picnic points. The Sanctuary of Apollo Hylates also offers a beautiful seafront setting and stunning ancient monuments.

Rhodes, Greece 

Approaching Rhodes by sea is an experience all its own. Choose from three different excursions, or spend the day with free time to explore the historical city at your own pace. On the Acropolis of Lindos tour, for example, you will discover centuries of culture, and intriguing civilizations, on your bus tour through Lindos and the extraordinary structure of the Acropolis of Lindos. As you walk along Knight’s Street, in the heart of Rhodes, you will be following the footsteps of historical heroes. The seven lodges of the Order, displayed along the cobblestone street, still bear their original coats of arm. This is where Rhodes’ history was written for more than two centuries. You will get a glimpse of the fascinating era of the knights at the Grand Master’s Palace, which sits pretty, at the top of Knights Street. It lives up to its name with its stunning and detailed Gothic architecture, and strength, displayed throughout its court structures.

Kusadasi, Turkey ~ Ancient Ephesus Through the Ages – Hellinistic and Roman

This famous beach resort town is known for its colorful Bazaar (market) and beautiful marina. Kusadasi boasts a seafront promenade, and harbor, lined with hotels and restaurants. It is also known for its close proximity to the ancient (3,000 years old) city of Ephesus, once home to the Temple of Artemis, one of the original Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The location was chosen by the oracle of Delphi, according to legend, and shaped the history of Greek, Turkish and Christian civilizations. Today, our bus tour brings us on a journey through the golden ages that represent a pivotal center of commerce and spirituality. The presence of major Christian figures (the apostles Paul and John and the Virgin Mary) is felt within the city walls. Ephesus is currently one of the largest Roman archaeological sites in the Mediterranean and a site of pilgrimage. We will explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site and have the opportunity to discover the Ephesus Agora, Odeon, the Houses of the Patricians, the beautiful Temple of Hadrian and the astonishing Library of Celsus. Before we head back to the ship, take the opportunity to shop for local merchandise, like souvenirs, leather goods or even carpets. Bargaining is half the fun!

Absolutely. Our site is so popular that we guarantee to find a roommate for you or the single cabin is on us! In order to take advantage of our offer, you must be paid in full by July 6, 2022. Guarantees are based on the lowest priced category. Upgrades are charged the full single rate less the lowest share credit if no equal match is found.

Of course, single cabins are available at an additional rate assessed by the cruise line. Even after the cut-off date, we get so many calls that finding a roommate is easy. So please let us know if you are interested when making your booking.

Our guarantee is based on the lowest, inside cabin share rate. If you opt for a higher category and we are unable to match in that category, you are responsible for the difference to move a member into your cabin to make a match. You may also opt to take your own cabin at that time for the single cabin rate. Assessments are made at final payment date: July 6, 2022

Roommate matches are based on the same sex, general age range and smoking preference whenever possible, but not guaranteed. Singles Travel International reserves the right to make any match up until day of cruising, including roommate changes once onboard for members who select the Share & Save option.

We highly recommend that our guests contact their roommates in advance. Booked members have access to our private online chat. Meet your roommate as well as the other members on your vacation. Singles Travel International makes every effort to accommodate requests, but does not guarantee the satisfaction or success of a roommate match. It’s the responsibility of the guest to contact his/her roommate and ask the appropriate questions.

Optional pre and post cruise/tour stays are not eligible for the roommate match guarantee. Chances are excellent that we’ll find you a match, but if no match is found by 30 days prior to departure, member pays the single supplement.

Read more about Roommate Matching on our Frequently Asked Questions found at the Help Center.

Please contact your preferred carrier directly to make your reservation. If Singles Travel International issues a promotional economy fare, granting of frequent flyer credit is entirely at the airline’s discretion. If the flights are eligible, to ensure you earn frequent flyer credit from the airline, give your frequent flyer account number when you check in for your flights. In addition, save your boarding passes and the passenger receipt from your airline ticket. You may need to submit these to the airline (not to Singles Travel International) to claim any credit allowed.

It is best to drink bottled water. You will find that both still and sparkling water are available aboard our cruise and you may carry off to drink during your excursions. Water is purified in the hotels and restaurants, and it is ok to drink beverages with ice wherever we take you on the tour.  More may be purchased as you go and a good way to get small change for bathrooms use and shopping.

The public drinking water is safe to drink, although it can be slightly brackish in some locales near the sea. For that reason, many people prefer the bottled water available at restaurants, hotels, cafes, food stores, and kiosks.

It is also not necessary to use bottled water to brush your teeth, as the tap water has also been purified.

Of course not. You will be pleased to find out that nearly 90% of our guests on every cruise sign up and have never met anyone before joining the group. In 28 years, we have perfected the singles cruise experience. It is paramount that our guests meet each other right away and have opportunities to mingle every day.

From the moment you arrive at the hotel, our Singles Travel International Concierge is waiting to meet you at our Hospitality Desk or Welcome Event. 

Our “Baby Boomer” vacations cater to singles in their 50s and 60s but you will often meet singles ranging anywhere from 45-75. We generally have a ratio of 60/40, women to men. As a travel club, matchmaking is not our focus. Ages listed on our page are not restricted. They are simply used as a guideline. We offer an opportunity for single travelers to see the world in the company of other singles and do not guarantee ratios or ages.

We recommend that you meet the members of the Singles Travel International Community online where you may view and interact with members via “Who’s Going” on every trip page. This is the best way to find out exactly who will be on your vacation.

We also invite you to join our 50+ singles community when you are not on the road, before and after your vacation @ www.SingleLife.Today.  Membership is free and when you upgrade to Premium, you’ll save $1000s of dollars on Your Own Space™.

Fall is a great time of year to visit the Eastern Mediterranean. During this month, the temperatures are pleasantly mild, as is the average sea temperature. Expect temperatures in the low to mid 60s, for most of the ports, with Egypt being in the mid 70s. A light jacket may be necessary for cooler evenings.

There is no baggage limit onboard ship.

Currently, most airlines will allow you to check 1 bag, weighing up to 50 pounds as well as a carry-on and a personal item such as a purse or briefcase for free. Please check with your air carrier for up-to-the-minute regulations and fees for checked baggage.

– Home address book for sending postcards. A useful tip to avoid bringing your entire address book is to pre-write names and addresses of people to whom you want to send postcards on sheets of self-adhesive labels. It saves time and space in your luggage.
– Small, basic sewing kit with a few extra buttons. Remember to pack scissors in your checked bag!
– Photography Equipment: Bring a sufficient supply batteries and memory cards.
– Power strip to charge more than one item at a time. Only 1 US outlet in your cabin.
– Alternate outlet on the ship and in our hotels are European, so bring an adapter/converter.

Meet Your STI Concierge

Vicki

Hi! My name is Vicki, and I am so happy to have joined the STI family as a Concierge! After having a career as a health-and-fitness writer and then having children, I decided to make a career change in order to pursue my love for travel. For 9 years now, I have designed small-group tours all over Europe and have led tours in Italy, Malta and Croatia. From the moment I began leading tours, being able to share wonderful experiences and make people smile through discovering a new location - or perhaps through discovering something about themselves - I felt as if I had found exactly what I was meant to do! I look forward to making your vacation dreams come true.

What Our Members Are Saying

I had a wonderful time sailing on the recent Singles Sailing Adventure! It was awesome to hear Amazing Grace played every day when the sails were hoisted as we set sail for another port destination. The food was excellent. There was plenty of opportunity for scuba, snorkel, or just touring the islands. Thank you so much for the great adventure.

It was amazing! I had a little of everything one could ever want on my first vacation ever! The greatest people were in our group, and the Avalon Night in Miami before meeting on the cruise really helped to make everyone comfortable with each other; as if we've known each other for a long time. What I felt made STI stand out from the rest is that it's about people - not about getting mates, but developing friendships, memories and real foundations, nothing superficial. AWWW GREAT!!! I will be going again with you all - Hugs, and again, thank you so much for all you did to get us together and made it a blast to remember.
