Locations: Burgas, Constanta, Kaval, Syros, Thessaloniki, Varna

An all inclusive price: 7 ports of call: Rhodes, Thessaloniki, Kaval, Constanta, Varna, Burgas, & Syros. Land tours in each port of call

We will be visiting some of the most historically significant and beautiful ports in the world, traveling between East and West as we cross from the Aegean into the Black Sea through the Bosporus and Dardanelle Straights.

This cruise combines visits to exciting ports with magnificent attractions many with rich Jewish History as well as relaxation with friends between ports. There will be three overnights in port allowing you to explore on your own!

We will be traveling on Mano’s Golden Iris, our home for the duration of our voyage. The Golden Iris contains a swimming pool, Jacuzzis, beauty salon, disco, casino, duty free shopping, basketball court, and nightclub with daily evening shows as well as entertainment throughout the day. Other facilities include a spa, which offers massages, a sauna and gym. In addition, there are many areas to just sit and relax as well as enjoy the ocean views. Finally, dinning is taken very seriously on the Golden Iris and you will enjoy three freshly cooked culinary delights. Each evening you will have a choice of complimentary alcoholic and non-alcoholic refreshments.

AACI offers a rich Jewish life during our voyage with daily tefillot, 2 beautiful Shabbatot at sea and interesting lectures by our Reuven Grodnerscholar-in-residence who will ensure that our minds are challenged throughout.

Our Scholar-in Residence and spiritual leader is Rabbi Reuven Grodner. Rabbi Grodner studied under Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik, zt”l and received his Smicha and M.A. from Yeshiva University in 1965. After serving in the rabbinate in the United States for a period of 18 years, he made Aliyah  in 1984. For the past 32 years he has served as director of the Beit Midrash Program at the Hebrew University which was named in March of 2010, “The Rabbi Reuven Grodner Beit Midrash”. Rabbi Grodner will be accompanied by his wife Chaya.
