St. Paul Mediterranean Cruise & Seminar at Sea

Travel Map

Not All Mediterranean Cruises are Created Equal

Here are some questions you should ask before you choose your Pilgrimage Cruise:

  1. Does the price include excursions off the ship? We include all the excursions. These special trips can be expensive so make sure you consider them when you look at advertised prices.

  2. If you are going on a Mediterranean cruise chances are you want to see as many Biblical sites as possible. Our itinerary (see map) was custom designed by Steve Ray--not some big cruise company that must cater to the thousands of other people on their ship.

    Check which ports the ship is stopping at, if you don't see: Patmos, Dikili/Pergamon, Thessaloniki, Kavala/Philippi, or Corinth, you'll be sailing right past important Biblical sites.

  3. How much extra money should you bring for "off ship" meals?
    Our price includes most meals & tips.
    If you have to pay for meals and tips, they add up fast, make sure to consider them in your budget.

  4. Mass at the sitesCheck what "Daily Mass" means? Mass onboard the ship a couple of times is typical...but make sure you’re not missing the celebration of Mass at the actual Biblical sites like the beautiful altar on the River in Philippi where Paul's first European convert was Baptized.

  5. How many days at sea? Every day at sea means another day away from the Biblical lands you flew across the ocean to see.

After many years of planning pilgrimages Steve Ray has developed a unique itinerary that you won't find anywhere else. We're confident if you compare this Mediterranean Cruise with any based on its Biblical itinerary, or price (after adding in the hidden costs on other trips), you'll come aboard with us.
