Due to the political and social uncertainty in Egypt, a major change has been made for our November 2011 Paul Cruise. After Costa Cruise Lines removed Egypt and Israel as ports of call for 2011, Educational Opportunities worked with Bishop Coyner to keep our Pauline emphasis and visit some other special sites.

The trip is now with Celebrity Cruise Lines and is one day longer at the same price! We have added two days in Istanbul, including seeing the world famous Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque and exploring the Grand Bazaar. Also new to the trip are stops in Crete and Naples, with the option of visiting Pompeii.

A Greece Pre-tour (adding no days) and a Rome Post-Tour were retained as options. If you have questions or would like to see a brochure please contact Trip Coordinator Norm Nellis at normgumc@aol.com or call 765-491-5011.
