A note about the current situation in Israel. As of 5/17/21, Israel is engaged with military action with the West Bank. This is an age-old conflict where both parties feel the other is an “occupier.” The Apex is set to start sailing from Athens in June, and I am sure the Apex will probably bypass Israel until the conflict is resolved. My hope is that this resolution will be well in advance of September, but of course I don’t know. I will say that if we keep our Apex group that everyone is prepared for the possibility of an itinerary change that would exclude Israel. And then after that see if we can maintain the group, or make some changes. We believe if there are any issues it will be Cyprus and Rhodes as the itinerary replacements for Jerusalem and Haifa, but of course that will be at the discretion of Celebrity.

One of our Outlanders already signed up for this cruise shared a great article on Why You Should Visit Israel that you may enjoy.
