Now is a great time to venture out and see how the rest of the world operates.
Now is the dry season; later will be rainy.
There are empty cabins to fill on these Holy Land cruises.
They do have cruises to the Holy Land, but many are cancelled (with passengers NOT getting a refund) because the area is almost always in turmoil. .. not worth the effort, IMO.
Venture out ? to a war zone ?
Don't be crazy.
