Flipping through the Jewish Press I came across an ad for Kosher Cruises. That didn’t catch my eye, but when I saw “First Ever Kosher Cruise to Israel & Egypt” I said wait… that’s cool.

The cruise is Glatt Kosher includes stops in Naples, Italy; Athens & Rhodes, Greece; Ephesus (Kusadasi), Turkey; Haifa & Ashdod, Israel; and Alexandria, Egypt. The “Ancient Empires” tour is a 13-day cruise on the brand new Celebrity ship Equinox round-trip from Rome. The trip leaves August 18-31, 2009. Click here for the full itinerary.

While this trip does sound amazing, it costs a whopping $4,550 per person for the crappiest room available. That cost doesn’t even include another $650+ in additional charges and taxes. That’s a bit steep for me… but if you can afford it, have fun!

The cruise is run by Lasko Tours which runs fancy holiday programs, especially Pesach, and numerous cruises around the globe. Mr. Lasko, is there any way you can take me and my wife on one of your cruises? I’m sure I can work out a way to help market your company. :-)
