All-Inclusive Luxury Cruise Sailing to Jordan

The waterway to the Red Sea - the commercial sea port of Aqaba (Al 'Aqabah) is the only outlet to the Hashimate Kingdom of Jordan, and is situated at the top of the Gulf of Aqaba. Aqaba brings a refreshing release from the rose-coloured desert to the North. Its sandy beaches and coral reefs are the most pristine on the Red Sea, and Jordanians hope to preserve them through careful planning. With several first-rate hotels, restaurants and shops, Aqaba caters to a tourist crowd that is tranquil and relaxed, seeking its pleasures more by day than by night. See the full itinerary here!

The crazy adventure of filming Jesus’ baptismal site with a drone

“Unfortunately, we won’t be able to use a drone at the baptism site due to its proximity to the Israeli border,” said the voice on the other end of the line. And that was that, or so we thought. ... So as I sat back in my desk staring at an old map of Amman, I decided to leave it in God’s hands and accept whatever outcome would result. Read more from Aleteia here!

    • “I think if you go all the way to Jordan you need to see Petra and Wadi Rum. We got a car out to Wadi Rum and had a private guide which took us around this awesome desert and showed us all the spots. We even got to ride camels for an hour through the desert as a sand storm swept over everything for a few mins - was probably one of the coolest experiences of my life.”- Sabrina V, August 29, 2018
    • “The first glance at treasury through the Siq will definitely stay etched in your memories for the rest of your life. The view from above is also brilliant. I have seen a route someone suggested in the internet which would take you to the top from where you can see the treasury below. It is, going past the royal tombs and then veer off to the right, climb the steps and further up when you see the amphitheatre in a distance, turn left. This would take at least 1hr. But I suggest a short hike through the fencing at the left of the treasury which would take merely 15 min. A local guide can take you there for just 10JD. You will save a lot of time and energy. Cheers!!!”- metros2018, August 27, 2018
