Suez Canal (Passage)
At it's opening in 1869, the Suez Canal was the first salt-water passage between the Mediterranean and Red Seas. The canal is 103 miles long and about 8% of the world's sea trade goes through it. Bordered by long lines of golden sand, the voyage down is both majestic and peaceful. The width of the canal is just over 300 yards across, which is just enough space for your ship to get you from one exciting destination to the next!
